O'Donnell is a well-known and proud thespian
25 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Heroic! Courageous! Brave! Daring! These are all words I would use to describe you, if you were able to sit through this tour de force of a performance by Rosie O'Donnell. Not because it's so bad as some have suggested, but because you will NEVER forget this film.

Rosie has not only elevated her acting skills, she elevates the viewer as well to a place I like to call "Rosie O'Nirvana." I have always been a fan of Rosie's super subtle, light on humor standup act, but her performance here puts her in the company of Dustin Hoffman and Daniel Day Lewis. If they were in the same airport bus.

Her performance is never so cloying and over-the-top that I have to catch my breath after her scenes because they are uncomfortable to view. And to those out there who suggested it, NO This should not be rated X due to the fact that it may shock you, disgust you and disturb you. It will, but in a good way.

I also want to salute Angelo Tsarouchas for his performance as Mean Eugene though -- it was superior.
