[Sarah Silverman is visiting her friends, who are boasting about their latest creative achievements]
Friend:So then I said, "Shut up, you stupid twat."
Friend:[petting her dog] Oh, my God.
Friend:I know. And then I'm like, Oh, fuck, what did I just do? But then the audience loved it! They went nuts, and she looked like an idiot. Like, they were all like, "She is a stupid twat that should shut up!"
Friend:That's awesome.
Friend:So it felt really good. So that's on the record.
Friend:You'll sell, like, so many more copies because you called someone a stupid twat on it.
Friend:[laughing] Who knows? I'm just glad I have a record out finally.
Friend:Oh, that's so good! So good.
Friend:Rob Zombie's producing it. It's crazy.
Friend:Wow!
[We get our first close-up of Sarah: smiling, interested, but uneasy; exactly the expression of someone who is jealous because she has no news of her own]

I'm not sure why they call it a "movie", 9 June 2006
Author: apexdawning from United States

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.
