Ellen may not be a genius but she comes close and certainly deserves some respect for having the guts to come out in such a huge way! All she is trying to do is make you see what it's like for gay people. Watch this extremely personal and intelligent documentary if you want to understand how, commercially, Ellen failed because she was left to deal with the consequences entirely alone and because the censorship and prejudice that ruled the show crushed its creative and hilarious edge. (The documentry also has an curious edge now that her and Heche have split - see em' interact like they'll be together for ever!) Poor Ellen! Show some respect! She is a GOD!
