Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Food, sex, and an unlikely combination of the two spice up stand-up comedian Margaret Cho's one-woman show, Notorious C.H.O. Filmed live in Seattle during her 2001 tour, the performance is an effectively no-frills document of her rather racy, graphically sexual shtick. Though Cho herself is straight, she's definitely gay-friendly and indeed has an almost fetishistic attraction to gay sexuality -- particularly among men. It's an oddly successful formula, giving her a liberated, even exuberant viewpoint that she uses to pry open the heterosexual lifestyle. (It's also won her a solid fan base in the gay community.) Not surprisingly, she also manages to milk her own tales of extensive sexual experimentation for all they're worth. Notorious C.H.O. is not all sex though -- her life as an American of Korean descent and her struggles with eating disorders and her weight also get the Cho treatment of sharp one-liners, punctuated by her patented facial hijinks. Indeed, a remarkably expressive face is key to her impression of her mother, a crowd-pleasing Cho signature that gets plenty of time here. Ultimately, Notorious C.H.O. finds the comic at her brash, feisty best, using her own struggle for self-esteem and self-acceptance to empower as well as entertain. And as far as her adoring fans are concerned, she succeeds brilliantly on both counts.
All Movie Guide - Todd Kristel
Some fans many find Margaret Cho's second concert film less consistently funny than its predecessor, I'm the One That I Want, but they are still likely to find plenty of good laughs here. The movie opens with an animated sequence featuring Cho's mother and an African-American friend in a Korean grocery. This is followed by relatively standard footage of Cho, her fans, and her parents (who seem rather nice); it was presumably included to provide some context for her performance, or perhaps to pad out the movie's running time. After this introduction, Notorious C.H.O. is a straightforward concert film shot on digital video with few frills (including fancy camerawork or cutaways to show audience reaction) to distract from (or enhance) the performance itself. For those unfamiliar with Cho's routines, they tend to feature candid and often raunchy remarks about human sexuality (straight, gay, and bi), as well as comments about other body issues, particularly weight, and an amusing impression of her mother (which admittedly seems a bit ungenerous at times). Cho advocates tolerance and positive self-image; indeed, she gets a bit preachy in this film with a few remarks that are commendable but not really funny, although some of her serious comments turn out to be set ups for jokes. She also has an unfortunate tendency to repeat some of material, overdo some of her impressions, and stretch out some of her routines longer than necessary. But her jokes are often hilarious, her timing is generally quite good, and she excels at using a frozen pose for comedic effect. If you think you could enjoy jokes about how men would behave if they menstruated, the differences between straight and gay personal ads, and the two drag queens who Cho refers to affectionately as her guardian angels, then there's a good chance that you'll enjoy this movie.
New York Times - Stephen Holden
Brilliant. Over the edge. One of the funniest comedians in America.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
Outrageous! A one-woman comic army...with seemingly limitless wit at her command.

Brilliant. Over the edge. One of the funniest comedians in America.
