While delivering an award to her humanitarian father Ben Feld, the stylish wealthy Jewish Caucasian Marci Feld is surprised by the attack of the conservative senator Mary Ellen Spinkle to her father in the media. The motive is the lyrics of the rap "Shoot Ya' Teacha " sing by Dr. S and released by the hip-hop record label Felony Assault that belongs to Ben. He has a heart attack, and his daughter decides to assume the problem and negotiate a public excuse of Dr. S in the MTV Award. However, the bad boy sings a polemic song on television to humiliate Merci that gives senator Sprinkle the chance to promote the "Buttgate". Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Worst of 2003?
3 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I inserted a question mark because I really can't recall if I saw a worse movie last year. Probably not. This is dull, illogical, and stupid--no, worse than that, it's stoopid. Lisa Kudrow's Marci says that she can't rap, yet almost immediately launches into a (very bad) rap about handbags. Uptight Senator Christine Baranski hears about 5 seconds of a hip hop beat and is instantly transformed into fabulous dancer with stripper potential. Instead of the comedy arising from the situation and/or the characters' quirks, screenwriter Paul Rudnick (hope he loves whatever the money from this crap bought!) just throws any gag he can at us, and nothing sticks. I laughed ONCE: when the obviously-meant-to-be-J.Lo Yolanda says, "I'm bleeding, I need a photographer." That's the only time in 84 (seems longer) minutes that a "comic" line was directly related to a character's personality. The rest is just stoopid.
