I think its been firmly established that Sarah Silverman is the funniest woman in comedy, which is traditionally not a very funny field. In Jesus Is Magic, she frames one of her genius stage shows with two contradictory framing sequences, something Ive never seen done before. Whatever filmic technique she throws at this, though, its basically just a forum for her to say things like Quite frankly, I think (a mandatory 24-hour waiting period for abortions) is a good law.
I was going to get an abortion the other dayand it turns out I was just thirsty. I mean she says things like that, since thats one of her jokes that she didnt put in the movie. The stuff in the movie is even better and more tasteless, but I dont want to ruin it for you. However, if you dont think theres any way that racism, sexual violence and pre-pubescent lesbianism can be humorous, you might want to skip what will no doubt be considered the funniest movie of 2005.
