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.

[it] might better have been called Marci Why.

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.

This is a messy disaster at which you can only scratch your head and mutter, "What were they thinking?"

Most of the laughs come from the questionable taste of Benjamin's subject matter, as opposed to any genuine wit.

The film sheds weak satirical light on the issues of freedom of speech, media responsibility, and oppression of minorities. It's anybody's guess who the target audience could be.

Seemingly endless movie.

There's a tawdry, self-congratulatory air about the film that leaves a bad taste.

Marci X is the kind of terrible movie I'm almost glad I've seen, because this decade probably won't bring a worse movie than this.

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.

It's the kind of movie that Mel Brooks used to make, warts and all.

A sketch comedy that misses more than it hits.

Como algum est˙dio p˘de aprovar este roteiro? Como os atores aceitaram participar do projeto? Como este conseguiu ser lanšado? Como Benjamin pode ser chamado de 'cineasta'?

Suggests a sort of Judeo-Nubian alliance that would supposedly make uptight WASP's quake with fear. I think.

Marci sets out to fix the situation and prove she's more than Daddy's little girl. Will she and Dr. S fall in love? Will Ben's company be okay? Will even the senator learn to get down to the rapper's music? Let's hope you never have to find out.

A more blithe display of astonishingly clueless anti-Semitism, racism, homophobia, and sheer bad taste has not been seen since probably ever.

Draw a big red "X" through this one.

The fatal flaw of Marci X is its complete and total disconnect from the contemporary zeitgeist of hip-hop culture in American society.

A bad joke that turns out to be a bad movie as well.

J.A.P. meets rap, but it's not a marriage made in heaven -- (very) far from it, in fact.
