    This review contains spoilers. One of the best autobiographies ever, and it's not even a book. Carrie Fisher takes a mocking and comedic look at her life and legacy. She talks about her family, childhood, Star Wars, and her ultimate "insanity". I applaud her bravery at making a full mockery at herself, and the force finally is strong in this one. Collapse

    The results is an unapologetically whiny--but funny!--and often plays lika (successful) audition tape for The View.

    Her observations throughout Wishful Drinking are incisive and funny. But at times the production, directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, gets a little bogged down in minutiae.

    Ultimately, Fisher comes across like that overly intelligent, entertaining, articulate analysand who has her own story all figured out, but still doesn't know how to let it go.
