I really like Margaret Cho, I think she's awesome.
But this whole movie was in total contrast to the intelligence, wit and actual humour which make her standup so great.
It was boring, unoriginal and totally stereotyped. I'm not from America, so I don't know, but are there really *that many* racist/homophobes? That would be that horrible outright? It just seemed contrived. In my experience people tend to be racist/homophobic behind your back, not right to your face.
And I normally like Bruce Daniels, but why is his voice so high? I think it's as another member said, to make him sound gayer *rolls eyes*.
Overall: Bad script, bad directing, pretty bad acting.
I don't know what Alan Cummings was doing in this movie, he is far more talented than the material allows for.
