News & Interviews for Marci X
Critic Reviews for Marci X
Marci X, though, is just clueless and sad, seemingly having missed the point that hip-hop is no longer a novelty to be slapped on the cheek with a white glove.
Rudnick can be an extraordinarily clever writer, but he doesn't seem to understand that a screenplay has to entail more than a series of skit ideas strung together.
It's no masterpiece, but I found it consistently good-hearted and sometimes hilarious, and the sparse crowd I saw it with was laughing as much as I was, especially at the outrageous rap numbers.
If the context of Marci X were more realistic, a lot of these gags would soar. But the context is drag-show dinner theater.
Audience Reviews for Marci X
Quite literally has one laugh and not a clue about its targets.
I saw this because it had Lisa Kudrow and actually thought it was pretty funny.
Fish-out-of-water movies where they put awkward white people in gangsta or hip-hop settings are a dime a dozen, just like this unfunny mess.
