    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a dishonest satire that manages to be (disingenuously) contemptuous of white people and (unintentionally) condescending toward black people, without ever being funny. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    As the hilariously foul-mouthed, sweet-souled Dr. S, he (Wayans) slaps Marci X to life every time he's on screen. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Director Benjamin doesn't really handle the material with the outrageous excess it deserves, with the result that the proceedings seem far too mild. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    The actors had little to work with in this passe social satire, but sharper performances might have saved Marci from total humorless ruin. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    The lamest in the recent run of comedies about uptight white people getting jiggy with it, would also be the most offensive -- if it weren't also the dullest. show more

    Leave something on the shelf long enough and it'll either ripen like cheese or rot like garbage. Guess what: This ain't Camembert. show more

    Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly

    A talent-stuffed assemblage of barbs and giddy musical numbers that shouldn't be written off as a feature flop -- but savored instead for the cult-ready collection of late-night satirical skits and misses it is. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    This is the kind of comedy in which the characters are construction-paper cutouts whose abrupt changes of heart are dictated entirely by the preposterous plot and not by psychological or social reality. show more

    Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

    It's no masterpiece, but I found it consistently good-hearted and sometimes hilarious, and the sparse crowd I saw it with was laughing as much as I was, especially at the outrageous rap numbers. show more
