Critic Reviews for Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic
Not to everyone's taste but her legions of internet fans won't be disappointed. Anyone who can come up with a line like 'I don't care if you think I'm a racist, I just want you to think I'm thin,' is okay in our books.
I wouldn't take my mother, but this stand-up movie is pretty funny.
Silverman comes across as a racist, callous diva in Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic.
As a concert film, Jesus Is Magic proves totally lacking in electricity, and for me, even the funnier lines produced only chuckles.
Jesus Is Magic is the second part of the title of comic Sarah Silverman's very funny, very wrong movie, which weaves wacky musical numbers and odd backstage moments with an L.A. performance of her one-woman show.
Audience Reviews for Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic
Sarah Silverman: Who cares? Different religions. I guess the only time it's an issue I suppose would be if you're having a baby, you have to figure out how you want to raise your baby or whatever, which still would not be an issue for us. Because you know, we'd just be honest, and say "Mommy is one of the chosen people, and Daddy believes that Jesus is magic." A strangely edited concert film showcasing Sarah Silverman. One's enjoyment of Silverman as a comedian is certainly going to be the deciding factor here. I am on an OK level with her work as a comedian. I can appreciate her balance between being edgy and borderline racist and I do like how very deliberate she is with her choice of words, pauses on stage, and throwaway one-liners. This film is kind of messy. There is a very unfunny framing device, musical numbers that are OK, and the majority of the film is one particular stand-up session. I never found anything really laugh out loud hilarious, but it was often humorous and a good look at what Silverman has to offer as a comedian. Ok film if you like her style. Sarah Silverman: When God gives you AIDS - and God does give you AIDS, by the way - make lemonAIDS.
If you took away all the musical numbers than this could have been a lot better.
I'm not sure if Silverman is an edgy genius or an intensely irritating attention seeking egotist. A bit like Robin Williams. She undoubtedly has no fear and pricks your conceptions on all the taboos. Her relentless desire to shock does get a little wearing though.
