Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
Not Available
Margaret Cho: Assassin is the 2005 concert film of the popular standup comedienne. In this performance at the Warner Theatre in Washington D.C., Cho takes direct aim at politics with her trademark irreverent humor and decidedly liberal viewpoint. Cho has been a fixture on the comedy club circuit since the 1980s with her raw discussions about her life as a bisexual Korean growing up in San Francisco. For this politically themed performance, she covers a variety of hot button topics of the day, like gay marriage or the controversy over the morning-after pill. She questions the "mean" attitude of the religious right and takes particular pleasure in mocking Republican politicians like President George W. Bush and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. She describes how the Pope lives a "queen" lifestyle not much different from fashion designer Versace. With plenty of sexual content and adult language, this concert film may be best suited to mature audiences.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    She has something to say to everyone, and one can only hope that she is preaching to more than her choir of devoted fans.

  • 60

    The New York Times

    Though specializing in confrontational, caustic and often raunchy humor, Ms. Cho has a relaxed and playful stage presence.

  • 40

    Variety 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.
