Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic
On the Big Board
||She's hot, funny and clearly insane. Sarah Silverman's concert film is hilarious most of the time and occasionally dull.
If Margaret Cho can do it then by God, so can Sarah Silverman.
The foul-mouthed comedian seeks to disprove the notion that she is a one joke comedian with this, the theatrical adaptation of her off-Broadyway show. The movie will be more that, though. It also will intersperse narratives from the actress and even a couple of music videos. The goal is to be as cutting edge and avant garde as possible.
Reviews of the play were largely positive. Many critics hailed her as a genius after viewing the project. It bears noting, however, that a lot of them described themselves as having lowered expectations going in. Silverman's fanbase, the core demographic for the film, might prove harder to please.
