Story


In 1991, music manager Shep Gordon held Mike Myers over a barrel a few weeks before shooting "Wayne's World" regarding an Alice Cooper song Myers wanted to use in the film. They have been close friends ever since. 22 years later, the story of Gordon's legendary life in the uber-fast lane is now told in Myers' directorial debut. And this time it's Myers who has Gordon over a barrel. Capitalist, protector, hedonist, pioneer, showman, shaman... "Supermensch". Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. Though he isn't a household name, Gordon has become a beacon in the industry, beloved by the countless stars he has encountered throughout his storied career. Gordon's unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, his pals, including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse and more.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..as much fun as it is, this all-star tribute is awfully one-note, never questioning Gordon's seemingly casual habit of befriending only the ultra-famous..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..Myers makes a pretty good case for the "supermensch" benediction for Gordon..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..it's a portrait that's equal parts shtick and soul-in other words, exactly what The Love Guru should have been..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
