Storyline

Sarah Silverman appears before an audience in Los Angeles with several sketches, taped outside the theater, intercut into the stand-up performance. Themes include race, sex, and religion. Her comic persona is a self-centered hipster, brash and clueless about her political incorrectness. A handful of musical numbers punctuate the performance. It begins and ends with her in conversation with two friends: at the start, she's the loser compared to their recent artistic successes; by the end, she's the star, in her dressing room, dismissive and cutting.

I'm not sure why they call it a "movie"
9 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Because it's really not. It's stand-up with two little bits of plot tacked on to the beginning and end of the DVD.

I rented this last weekend because I like Sarah Silverman's acting - I was a big Greg the Bunny fan - but I find her comedy sort of lackluster. I'm not sure I can explain why, it just seems kind of forced, like she's in high school and she's trying to get all the popular girls to like her. "Look, I said something offensive! Do you like me now?" Anyway, I was pretty disappointed when I found out that it was not, in fact, a movie, but a "look what I can do" showcase of Silverman's alleged talents. It was the most self-absorbed thing I have ever seen. I can truly believe that this movie-thing is based on the premise that she wrote a show in one night.

So, in summary, great for people who like Sarah Silverman's stand up, not-so-great for Greg The Bunny fans.
