Joan Rivers: Don't Start with Me is a 2012 comedy documentary directed and written by Scott Montoya. The film stars the late Joan Rivers, Mick Archer, and Stacey McMichael, as they take the audience on a humorous journey through the ins and outs of Joan's life. The movie is structured around Joan's stand-up comedy performance, which she delivers to a live audience at a sold-out venue in New York City. Interwoven within her act, are clips from her personal life, including her many red carpet moments, appearances on late-night talk shows, and even her stint on The Apprentice.

Throughout the film, Joan's razor-sharp wit is on full display as she pokes fun at herself, her family, and anyone else who crosses her path. Her jokes range from the lighthearted - like her obsession with plastic surgery - to the more serious, discussing bullying, gender inequality, and ageism in Hollywood.

The highlight of the film is Joan's impromptu Q&A session with audience members, where she takes questions on everything from her net worth to her thoughts on sex tape scandals. Her responses are unapologetic, irreverent, and always entertaining.

Despite the film's comedic tone, there are moments of poignancy. Joan openly discusses her insecurities and the challenges she faced as a female comedian in a male-dominated industry. She also shares stories about her longtime friend and fellow comedian, Phyllis Diller, whose death left a profound impact on Joan.

In addition to Joan's stand-up, the film also features comedic performances from her co-stars, Mick Archer and Stacey McMichael. While both performers are talented in their own right, it is clear that Joan is the star of the show.

Overall, Joan Rivers: Don't Start with Me is a must-watch for fans of the legendary comedian. It captures her signature brand of humor, while providing insight into her life and career. The film serves as a fitting tribute to Joan, whose legacy continues to live on.
