    July 29, 2016

    Plays as if you've been invited to read half of a courtroom transcript -- the defense's half -- while skipping past redacted text that might have complicated or undermined the argument.

    "Can We Take a Joke?" ... poses a valid question at a juncture when freedom of speech is a hot topic, especially where the Internet is concerned.

    New York Times

    It would be better if it ... at least acknowledged the possibility that some jokes ought not be told.

    It's not the state that has turned against them; it's audiences.

    It's all awfully dispiriting.

    Tackles a vital and provocative question, without a variety of different answers, it feels incomplete and unbalanced.

    A sporadically interesting yet terminally unfocused documentary...

    Interesting as it is, but it would have been much better had it really grappled with the complexities of the issue it raises rather than presenting it in a cut-and-dried way.

    A cautionary tale bemoaning the chilling effect of political correctness on free speech.
    August 01, 2016

    The ideas presented are more complex than Can We Take A Joke? is able to fully address, but they are ideas that desperately need to be discussed.

    Under the Radar

    The answer isn't necessarily one way or the other, but Can We Take a Joke? doesn't explore this societal issue with any depth or nuance.
