Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Until 2003, Kris Carr's life resembled that of many other New York actresses. The attractive blonde acted in commercials, appeared in theatrical revues, and guested on programs like Law & Order. After she was diagnosed with cancer of the vascular system, Carr decided to document the experience (she has also written a book, Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor). This isn't how most people would react, especially if told that conventional treatments aren't likely to help. With the support of her friends and family, Carr becomes "a full-time healing junkie." For this TLC documentary, she also interviews fellow cancer survivors, like redheaded sisters Erin Zammett Ruddy and Melissa Gonzalez, African-American playwright Oni Faidah Lampley, and pink wigged tour manager Jackie Farry. While Carr acquires a New Age attitude (she digs the word "groovy"), Farry advances a punk-rock approach (her motto is "f--- cancer"). Carr may exhibit greater acceptance of her condition, but Farry's anger seems like the more logical response. Further, Carr's optimism is admirable, but possibly unrealistic for those without her support system or insurance benefits (Plus, she never looks sick and falls in love with her camera man during filming). Nonetheless, her sometimes risqué sense of humor makes for entertaining company during this five-year journey. In Crazy Sexy Cancer, Carr doesn’t presume to offer any cures for untreatable conditions, but provides a model for living well through low-impact exercise and proper eating habits. The plentiful extras include a yoga routine, guided meditation, detox tips, deleted scenes, and extended interviews. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer, 31-year old Kris Carr exits her acting career upon diagnosis to film her journey for the next four years. Cutting edge, sassy and hip, this generation-defining documentary provides a rare passenger seat view into the intimate, anguishing, and sometimes humorous world of living with cancer.

Even though I'm a professional writer, words fail me. I'm sitting here at my computer with my fingers poised in touch-type position waiting for one gigantic capsule of brilliance to come out. Nope, still nothing. So I'll make my rave less-than-brilliant. Even though her DVD is genius!

Three words: Get this DVD. Six words: Even if you don't have cancer.

Kris Carr has done the miraculous: She has turned the whole conversation of cancer and healing and empowerment, and creative control upside down to invite all of us to look at our lives and even mortality through brave, fresh, fun, authentic eyes. She's a delight to watch; informative to listen to; an inspiration to emulate. She may actually make me do the unthinkable: shove kale down the feed tube of my juicer and give it a try. (Needless to say, I'm a juicing newbie; but her influence is bringing this Chocolate girl around.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Sexy Cancer May 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Here is a wonderful exploration of young folks with cancer. Her worldwide search for cures and potent diets are inspiring. I work for hospice and plan to reccommend this video and companion book to my patients. The extras on the video include yoga for healing and vegetarian diet help. I think that this is a very important video for most people as nowdays we all now people struggling with this disease. Also for those of us who want to avoid cancer, there are plenty of tips for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and charming April 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this on TLC, and it's a beyond charming look at what would normally be a private struggle with cancer.
Kris Carr is an amazing inspirational young lady and she inspired me so much to live my days to a much more full extent!
She has an open heart that she is sharing with the world.
I have purchased a few extra copies for friends now as I don't want to give up my own.

I'm not sure why her name is not FIRST on her DVD (lists Rodney Yee who stars in an extras chapter)!

5.0 out of 5 stars When I was ready, the book was waiting November 18, 2008
Format:DVD
I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in May 2008. Had surgery, found out the cancer spread to my lymph nodes and liver. I was scared to death. My friend Marganne kept telling me about the Craze Sexy Cancer lady she was on TV, and wanted me to read the books. It took me months to find the courage to start reading about cancer. I thought the more I read, the more I researched, the more I'd see that I was in big trouble. Well, I finally got the books six months later, and my life has been turned around. So many things clicked with me, that I can say, WoW, Kris totally gets it.

since ready her book, a had to make some changes to Team Diane!! I let go of my oncologist at my primary hospital, whose bedside manner didn't jive with me, and now see a second year oncology Fellow, who works under the first oncologist. He is so patient with me, hugs me when I need it, and is not afraid to hold my hand and look me in the eye and explain what is happening to me. As it turns out my new Main Man at Penn State Hershey Medical Center was in residency with one of my two oncologist I see at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. My Team calls each other with ease to discuss my case. Thank you Chris for giving me the strength to let go of a very, highly trained oncologist, for someone who is also highly trained and educated, genuinely cares about me.

This is just one of the many truly life changes experiences that have come out of the CRAZY, SEXY, CANCER series. I've got my GalPal's, who comes to chemo with me, and turn it into a party. I try to turn everything I do into a little party.

Sincerely,
ryderone@verizon.net

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformation! March 19, 2008
By Gina
Format:DVD
Every time I see it I pick up another gem. This documentary isn't about cancer, it's about wellness, about living. We ALL need to step back and examine how we individually and collectively are living our lives. And how that is impacting the health of our species. Kris had an in-your-face wake up call. What is going to take for YOU to start truly taking care of yourself? I recommend starting with this DVD! Absolutely inspiring!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope during a difficult time May 7, 2011
By Nick
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As someone currently fighting cancer, I had been looking for almost anything in regards to fighting cancer on your own terms and being pro-active in your health care. I would go for treatment everyday (and still do) but when I leave the hospital and go home, nothing I did at home would be beneficial towards fighting cancer. I felt like my doctors were doing the work but that I wasn't putting in any additional effort, just going with the flow. I wanted a resource that was also geared towards young adults battling cancer. This documentary is about a young adults' cancer journey and not just sitting by as doctors performed tests on her, but by also being pro-active and taking an important role in her healing journey, through nutrition and eastern forms of healing. This documentary has helped to inspire me to make a change in my own life, outside of cancer, so that it may benefit me and change the course that my disease has taken. This documentary for me is one step to seeing my healing journey in a whole new light and to helping me become more aware of what I can do to help myself. I highly recommend this movie for cancer fighters, survivors, caregivers, friends and family of those with cancer and anyone who wants to be able to better understand the opportunities that are available for us to become active participants in our health.

It would have been quite enjoyable had it not been for all the language. I found the language to be over the top. Would not watch it again for this reason. Read more
