Marci X

Source: Catholic News Service

Intolerably dreadful comedy about a spoiled Jewish socialite (Lisa Kudrow) who attempts to clean up the act of a notorious gangsta-rap artist (Damon Wayans) in order to appease a right-wing media watchdog bent on destroying her father, the man who owns the rapper's recording company. While director Richard Benjamin aspires to biting social satire about racial politics and First Amendment rights, the result is an unwatchable litany of lewd vulgarities and offensive caricatures strung together by a witless script, as morally objectionable as it is dull. Racial stereotyping, much crude and sexual humor, an implied sexual encounter and recurring rough and vulgar language, as well as an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
