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.

Seemingly endless movie.

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.

A sketch comedy that misses more than it hits.

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.

If the context of Marci X were more realistic, a lot of these gags would soar. But the context is drag-show dinner theater.

A talent-stuffed assemblage of barbs and giddy musical numbers that shouldn't be written off as a feature flop -- but savored instead for the cult-ready collection of late-night satirical skits and misses it is.

Sports woefully outmoded cultural punchlines.

The term 'wildly uneven' doesn't come close to charting the peaks and valleys of Marci X.

The spoofs in Marci X are so old and dated, it boggles the imagination to think of what group might still be offended them.

Marci X plays like a satire made by people who don't know the worlds they're satirizing.

If this had been released in, say, 1994 at the latest, it might have been cutting-edge. As it is, it's just so much sticky foam on the cappuccino.
Aug 25, 2003
This is the kind of movie that would leave a hopeful crowd feeling let down, but might sparkle like a tiara in a trash can for someone who discovers it by chance.
Aug 25, 2003
This is the kind of comedy in which the characters are construction-paper cutouts whose abrupt changes of heart are dictated entirely by the preposterous plot and not by psychological or social reality.

Marci X gives Gigli a run for its money as the summer's worst movie.

Director Benjamin doesn't really handle the material with the outrageous excess it deserves, with the result that the proceedings seem far too mild.

The actors had little to work with in this passe social satire, but sharper performances might have saved Marci from total humorless ruin.
