Not really enjoyable, but not really meant to be
4 June 2014 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

This film is quite depressing, not that there's anything wrong with that. Not an enjoyable watch, but I'm sure it wasn't intended to be. A great acting performance by Janeane Garofalo. If my rating was only about her performance it would have been much higher. She has the dramatic chops, especially for someone who came up as a comedienne. She never was really pretty in the classical sense, but I always liked her looks. I really liked her on The Larry Sanders show. She still looks good here. Margaret Cho was fine here, and Bobcat Goldthwaite was suitably repulsive. But I would only recommend this film to fans of Miss Garofalo.
