The Amazing Johnathan Documentary

The documentary starts off well enough – we see some funny clips of Johnathan back in the day.  We see some famous people talk about him.  We see his life right now.  And as every minute goes by the documentary becomes less interesting.  The angle that the director goes for is both not believable and not interesting.  By the end it just kind of sputters to a halt.
