This movie has gotten far too many negative reviews. Yes, this movie is dumb. But anyone who cares to take a second look can see that it was well thought out. The satire is great and timely. If you are not too proud or high minded to enjoy lowbrow comedy then you should give this movie a chance. Too many critics love to tear a movie apart because it does not suite their personal tastes, and they go out of their way to make everyone else hate it as well. This is too bad, and such people shouldn't write reviews at all, in my opinion. Good movie critics need to give people a chance to decide for themselves what they sould like or dislike. Just because you are a movie critic doesn't mean your tastes are better than anyone else's.

This is one fun, wild, crazy comedy. Yea its over the top and kinda dumb but it is so funny! Lisa Kudrow is great is her role. The charecters are fantastic and colorful! This is an all around fun film! Very over looked! If you loved "Undercover Brother" and "Bringing Down the House" you'll love "Marci X"!

This movie is getting a very hard time. It does not deserve it, I won't write another plot synopsis, but I will say it takes so many social stereotypes and pokes fun at all of them. I was not expecting to like this movie and had never even heard of it, it simply came on TV one night- but I have subsequently made all my friends watch and they enjoyed it to.

Wayans is great as a hardcore rapper, and Kudrow is convincing as a deb who just wants to help the homeless get food, clothes, and conditioner. In fact her friends are the same way, one helps inner city youths dress in the correct size.

This movie plays on typical stereotypes and play with political correctness and does so in a charming way, b/c you really like the characters.

The problem with Marci X is in this era of ideological constraint identification of an audience base was an impossibility. However, if you liked Bamboozled, this satirical film lampooning the exploitive cultures of Rap Music and Corporate America while managing to lob a grenade or two at the uninformed arrogance of conspicuously consuming socialites will entertain you as well.

Lisa Kudrow is the over the top incarnation of the Upper East Side conveniently relevant Jewish socialite and Damon Wayans succeeds admirably as the up from the ghetto hip-hop icon. The unification of the two, if you watch the film, is not as implausible as some might think because while their nurturing may have been diametrically opposite, by the time they meet the they have each become less than commendable representations of all that is wrong with inculcation of economic excess.

Richard Benjamin is the symbol of corporate management, where the only truly operative consideration is enhancement of the bottom line until orchestrated public outcry, in this instance lead by a self-aggrandizing Senator portrayed Christine Baranaski who naturally has her own private agenda, places superficial attention to social responsibility on the cusp. Throw in some gems offered by Kudrow's sidekicks, most notably , Jane Krakowski, add a J.Lo wannabe, and an assortment of caricatures from both sides of the economic divide and you have about ninety minutes of fun.

I would consider myself a real critic. I can find something wrong with almost anything. Saying that, I thought as a satire kind of film, this is damn near brilliant and very humorous. A very nice expose of silly American taboos. Lisa Kudrow and Damon Wayans have great on screen chemistry. The people saying this film is so bad most certainly take things a little too seriously.

Despite reviews that could be described lukewarm at best, I still saw this movie as a fan of Lisa Kudrow. I never expected to find a movie that was actually funny, with a fairly sharp satirical edge.
The movie as a whole was kind of stupid (in a good way). And if you watch this movie with lowered expectations you will enjoy this fairly diverting comedy.

When talking about this movie the first word that comes to mind is "flop." And flop it did. Not even the famous faces of Lisa Kudrow and Damon Waynes could save the box office effect of Marci X. After being shelved for a little over a year, director and actor Richard Benjamin decided to bring the movie out this summer. There was no advance screenings and there was hardly any promotion for it. It made a quiet entrance and is making an even quieter exit. In openign weekend it failed to make more then 900,000 dollars. But I saw it. And needless to say, there were flaws. But it was funny. Parts of this movie were just so stupid that they made me laugh untill I was red in the face. When I went into the theatre I counted the amount of people that showed up for the evening show. There were about six, not including me and my mother, who saw the film with me and surprisly didn't fall asleep.
The movie stars Lisa Kudrow as Marci Feld. She's rich, and doesn't have a job. She does however like to hang out with fellow rich friends Caitilen, Lauren, and Kristin. But during a social get together, her father Ben Feld(director Richard Benjamin) is interrupted because of a news report concerning him. Feld's empire holds Felony Assault, a record label, run by Tubby Fenders, who is in jail. Fenders artist Dr.S(Damon Waynes)has made a controversal album(song titles include Shoot the Teacher, and The Power in my Pants) Senator Mary Ann Spinkler(Vote for Spinker)decided to gather a group of people to boycott everything run by the man who controls Dr. S....Marci's father. This causes Ben to have a heart attack in the effect of this. She also holds a hearing about the matter.
Ben is held in isolation so nothing in the media about him could cause him to get furthur heath problems.
