Utterly hilarious
15 April 2008 | by boatista24See all my reviews

From the "Bloggies" awards, to Angelina Jolie being attacked by an angry mob of her own children, to Renee Zelwiger's chronic narcissistic squint, to Hindu pharmacists calculating the effects of Viagra on septuagenarians in musical "bollywood" form, this is more classic humor from one of the most talented women in the world. Having been a big fan in the mid-eighties and beyond, I haven't missed a single series/episode of the magical Miss Tracey Ullman since she arrived from "across the pond". One of the funniest series she has created to date, in "State of the Union" she pokes fun at just about every conceivable nonsense the USA is known for.
