Cho's fans are sure to be entertained; it's only fair in the interest of full disclosure to say that -- on the basis of this film alone -- I'm not one of them.

A hit- and-miss affair, consistently amusing but not as outrageous or funny as Cho may have intended or as imaginative as one might have hoped.

It's hard to quibble with a flick boasting this many genuine cackles, but Notorious C.H.O. still feels like a promising work-in-progress.

Good for the fans but probably only so-so for everyone else.

Essentially a formulaic showcase for the provocative Korean-American's singular comedic styling.

In her first picture, she was as shrill as fingers across a blackboard. Much less shrill and repetitive this time, her act is more inviting to non-fans. Even so, I found it more cute than funny. I never laughed.

Though her fans will assuredly have their funny bones tickled, others will find their humor-seeking dollars best spent elsewhere.

She needs us far more than we need her.

Where last time jokes flowed out of Cho's life story, which provided an engrossing dramatic through line, here the comedian hides behind obviously constructed routines.

The level of comic invention is surprisingly low, and the resultant amusement spotty at best.

Cho's bisexuality supplies her with double ammo when making sex jokes, which are her specialty.

This movie's a scream! If you've never seen or heard of Margaret Cho, and you want to take a chance at something that you can relate to, and then not relate to, and still laugh anyway, then scope out this film and get to it.

Captures the raw comic energy of one of our most flamboyant female comics.
August 8, 2002
The difference between Cho and most comics is that her confidence in her material is merited.

This macho lady rants at her best and most comfortable as combo socially conscious female stud.

Cho's impressions of her mom are legendary among fans, and for good reason.

With Notorious C.H.O. Cho proves she has the stuff to stand tall with Pryor, Carlin and Murphy.

Cho is one amusing caustic storyteller. Sharply hilarious and brimming with heart-rendering frankness, Cho exposes herself through the raw observations of the engagingly cheeky comedy concert film Notorious C.H.O....a fearless showcase that's smart
