Critic Reviews for I'm the One That I Want
Like a lot of great comedy, I'm the One rises from the ashes of genuine pain while still being funny.
An interesting story (and we're glad she was able to turn her life around) - but it might play better as a movie of the week than a stand-up comedy routine.
I'm sure her hometown audience appreciates the therapy session that the film deteriorates into...but for me at least, it got very old.
Audience Reviews for I'm the One That I Want
Oh Lord. Margaret Cho beats that one trick pony over and over and over again. How many times can one put out the "shocking" material and pretend that it is comedy.
Margaret Cho clearly has a knack and talent for stand up comedy. She demonstrates that here and does it quite well. Not all the jokes work, but for the most part it is laugh out loud funny. Great fun, very entertaining.

[/i]is still, collectively, her best material thus far, and I've had the privilege of seeing her perform it live about two years ago. Needless to say, though, [i]I'm the One That I Want [/i]is fantastic as well and definitely worthy of a viewing for those that are not familiar with her stand-up.

The film's moments of hilarity outweigh its plot weaknesses. [img]http://img102.echo.cx/img102/9646/18ox.png[/img] [b]All Over Me (****) [2nd viewing][/b]: [i]All Over Me [/i]was the film that served as my introduction to gay-themed cinema many years ago. Not only did I identify with the main character, Claude (Alison Folland), but also the atmosphere the film created. The emotions, heartbreak, confusion, angst, and drama are all relatable, and the realistic portrayal of youth in the 90s is an extraordinary achievement. Recommended; especially if you enjoyed [i]Fucking Åmål[/i] (1998).
