  1. A talent-stuffed assemblage of barbs and giddy musical numbers that shouldn't be written off as a feature flop -- but savored instead for the cult-ready collection of late-night satirical skits and misses it is.
  2. It's no masterpiece, but I found it consistently good-hearted and sometimes hilarious, and the sparse crowd I saw it with was laughing as much as I was, especially at the outrageous rap numbers.

    Plays like an overextended variety-show sketch.

    Director Benjamin doesn't really handle the material with the outrageous excess it deserves, with the result that the proceedings seem far too mild.
  5. A romantic comedy with neither humor nor sparks between the leads, Marci X attempts to lampoon gangsta rap clichés so obvious they feel ten years old -– “Malibu's Most Wanted” brought more to the table.

    It's tough to decide just what's more offensive: the movie's musty depiction of gangsta rap as public enemy No. 1, the notion that all an uptight white girl needs to loosen up is a few puffs on a Philly blunt, or the idea that any of this might be remotely funny.

    Moving beyond stultifying to stupefying.

    Anybody who doesn't like this movie must be kind of slow and not getting the biting satire. I've noticed satirical movies generally get lowAnybody who doesn't like this movie must be kind of slow and not getting the biting satire. I've noticed satirical movies generally get low ratings....didn't know America was full of such humorless people. The movie is an equal opportunity offender which shows the people who made the movie "get it" and are not being offensive, rather they are making fun of those who stereotype people. I'm going to recommend this movie, that like Lisa Schwarzbaum of "Entertainment Weekly" said should be savored for it's cult-ready collection of skits that it has. Lisa Kudrow is one of the most brilliant, under-appreciated stars of our time! Awesome! Expand
