Margaret Cho: Assassin

Critics Consensus

Margaret Cho: Assassin finds the comedian playing to her base with a set full of would-be provocations that amount to disappointingly little in the way of laughs.

Critic Reviews for Margaret Cho: Assassin

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (15)

  • Pointed sociopolitical commentary that's thoughtful and impassioned, if not always hilarious.

    September 16, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Only for die-hard Cho fans.

    September 8, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Anger is the gasoline of stand-up comedians, the fuel that gets them revved. But just as too much gas will flood a carburetor, an overdose of anger can stall a comic's inspiration.

    September 7, 2005 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Inspiration is running thin in comedian Margaret Cho's fourth concert film, a routine stand-up set that compares poorly to her oft-hilarious first two.

  • If Margaret Cho's act shows no signs of getting old, it's because the world is kind enough to provide her with sufficient lunacy to fill countless concert tours.

    September 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Much of this feels like pandering to her liberal audience, as she approaches subjects like reproductive and gay rights without offering many new -- or funny -- observations.

    Not her best but clever and better than an average stand-up
