The pint-sized powderkeg lets loose on her emotional problems, sexual situations, trip to a swingers' club and encounter with a Valley Girl dominatrix and distills it into a hysterical live performance recorded in Seattle. Includes deleted scenes, an animated short and more. 2002/color/95 min/NR/fullscreen.
Margaret Cho is an NC-17 woman in a PG-13 world. Very, very little can be quoted from this concert film, as can be expected from a woman who, in the film's empowering conclusion, sounds the rallying cry to live "without restraint." Leave it to Cho to reference September 11 with a joke that is at once profane and respectful. Like Richard Pryor, the Korean-American outlaw comedian has found her niche with concert films that allow her the freedom to be her "actual self." She riffs unabashedly about relationships gone sour and relates her experiences as a sexual Captain Kirk, boldly going where she has never gone before. Notorious, yes, but not as accessible for the uninitiated as her last concert film, I'm the One That I Want, which recounted the rise and fall of her ill-fated sitcom. The faithful, though, won't pass up the chance for a private audience with the diva of the disenfranchised. --Donald Liebenson

This new show, a perfect sequel to "I'm The One That I Want," is a hilarious ride through such important topics as terrorism, sexual pecadillos, weight control, colonic irrigation and other timely points of interest.
What separates Margaret Cho from your average teller-of-jokes is her sometimes shocking honesty. She is not afraid to put herself out there and let us all laugh about things that we probably all experience but are afraid to talk about. She doesn't pander to the crowd for laughs - she can practically talk about anything and find the lighter side of it to get an audience to laugh.
I suppose after being laughed AT for the better part of her childhood, she did what most people are afraid to do - she challenged people to laugh WITH her instead. The result is an hilarious comedic journey and one that, especially for the price, is well worth the investment.
YOU GO CHO!
About a third of the way through the doorbell rings and her 60-ish neighbor comes to return the casserole and Mommy invites her to stay. The Commentary continues and the doorbell rings again. This time a police officer comes and joins the Commentary.
Hey! This is the best Commentary feature I have heard!!
