Hysterical and inspiring!
30 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never been the biggest Carrie Fisher fan! I've loved her books and screenplays like the wonderful "Postcards From The Edge", but I've never really gone for Star Wars movies.

Still, I adore her personality and strengths. This act is hysterically funny and moving! I simply love her charm and wit. She never wallows in self-pity like so many other movie stars. She can look back on her problems and make something funny out of them, which is something I always encourage. Why take life so seriously?

Also, who knew she had such a lovely singing voice? Why hasn't she ever done a movie musical or done something on Broadway. The Great White Way is ready for you, my dear!

Why sit down and explain it? Just go out there and rent or buy it! It's a terrific hour and a half of fun!
