I finally figured out why I didn't love this
22 November 2019 | by heaviestluvSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong it's decent but not her best. It's important that we all be able to laugh at ourselves and this special certainly spends a lot of time pointing out all of the absurd things women tend to do, especially all of the over-the-top wedding related situations we put ourselves and our loved ones through. While I definitely chuckled at some things, I found myself kind of apathetic through most of it.

Finally it hit me why I didn't love it: laughing at ourselves is often the best medicine but in this special the jokes are structured in a way where it seems like Iliza is mostly laughing at "others". Most of her jokes seem to observe other women as the ones behaving absurdly with the implied premise that Iliza herself is an exception to this behavior. It felt a little bit like an hour of her desperately trying to prove what a cool girl she is putting other girls down. Maybe a touch holier-than-thou?

Don't get me wrong, it's a comedy special not a speech to the United Nations. No lasting harm to womanhood is done, no protests will occur and no grudges will be held. It's just a bit one-note and not particularly compelling or nuanced. I found that with topics at hand, I was expecting some more layered, introspective, and self-aware jokes.
