Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Sandy Lawson
Turning a professional failure -- the disastrously short run of her sitcom All American Girl -- into an artistic success, Margaret Cho created the monologue/theater piece I'm the One That I Want. Although outrageous (don't even ask about the "crucifixion workout"), the film is not all laughs and giggles, as Cho shows the dark side of show business with honesty so poignant and graceful that one can't help but be moved. Her heart-wrenching, bittersweet tale of a struggle for self-acceptance can be summed up in her joke about her grandfather who, on his deathbed and unable to recognize her on previous visits, suddenly came "out of it," smiled a little, and in all earnestness said, "Margaret! What ever happened to your show?" The film warrants one criticism. Although there is footage of audience members on the way in (including a rare shot of her actual parents), we never see the close-up audience reactions to Cho's performance.

I'd only seen little bits and pieces of Margaret Cho before and they were funny. She can't sustain it for an entire performance...not even half a performance. This just wasn't funny.

I saw this concert live and saw the video, and she is hilarious. I laughed so hard that I was crying and hurting by the end of the show. I have since seen her 2 follow up concerts - Notorious C.H.O. and Revolution. I'm the One That I Want is by far her best and funniest routine, but the others are worth watching too. Men, women, Asians, gays, everyone will find much to laugh about in her show. I went with a group of friends, and we all had a great time.

This movie is the funniest I've seen so far. Margaret Cho is witty and entertaining while bringing home true life experiences that all of us encounter.
