      Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 Mar 10, 2003 Full Review Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel This is hardly big-screen stuff. Rated: 2/5 Sep 19, 2002 Full Review Connie Ogle Miami Herald Has enough laughs to make it worthwhile for Cho's most devoted fans. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 13, 2002 Full Review Jae-Ha Kim Jae-Ha Kim Margaret Cho has a wry way of looking at the world that is universal and true. Who else would point out that if men had periods, their apartments would look like murder scenes?

      Audience Member the first and still the best read funny Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Donald is wrong. Wonderful live show. Haters gonna hate. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm glad that Margaret Cho has faded away. It is amazing how she was able to recycle one decent set into two feature films and healthy paydays doing stand up shows across the country. Cho certainly received the benefit of being one of the first to be the comedic "hag" to her gay audience and the novelty pushed her to grand levels in my appearance. Destined to be a footnote in history. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely hilarious. Especially poignant for those of us who grew up with a lot of Asians. Her impressions of her mother will induce seat-wetting! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Cho's best stand-up movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member haters get lost: Margaret Cho is the greatest!!
