  1. She has something to say to everyone, and one can only hope that she is preaching to more than her choir of devoted fans.
  2. Even those who may agree with Cho's agenda are never allowed to forget that it is an agenda.
  3. She has tackled difficult subjects with sharp wit, but this self-congratulatory set falls well short of our ensuing expectations.
  4. It's hard to see why her audience seems so much more rabid than that of other, funnier comics. The secret seems to be in her appeal to the gay community.
  5. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Inspiration is running thin in comedian Margaret Cho's fourth concert film, a routine stand-up set that compares poorly to her oft-hilarious first two.
  6. Reviewed by: Peter L'Official
    Assassin is the listless signature on her career-long comedic suicide note.

    A woman unafraid to challenge authority by tearing its veil down to uncover our society's prejudices and continuing contradictions. While, watching her in Toronto I realized her commitment to unraveling prevalent issues, such as; sex, gender, politics and race, is something rarely ever seen by 'entertainment stars', and I thank her for her prevailing commitment.

    I used to love Margaret Cho. I have loved everything she's ever done. This is terrible. She barely does her characterizations, she's just angry and.... tired. What a shame. I only gave her a 1 because she showed up. Expand

    When talking about homosexuals she continually says "us" and "we" yet she's been married to a man for the past five years. This woman is the female equivalent of Dane Cook. Expand
