Margaret Cho - Notorious C.H.O.
Margaret Cho is an NC-17 woman in a PG-13 world. Very, very little can be quoted from this concert film, as can be expected from a woman who, in the film's empowering conclusion, sounds the rallying cry to live "without restraint."

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is hardly big-screen stuff."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A raunchy and frequently hilarious follow-up to the gifted Korean American stand-up's I'm the One That I Want."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Notorious C.H.O. made me laugh as long and hard as any movie I've seen this year."
‑ Paul Matwychuk, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"She can be funny even when she gets on her soapbox."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Much less dark than her previous theatrical effort."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"Has enough laughs to make it worthwhile for Cho's most devoted fans."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"A movie that will surely be profane, politically charged music to the ears of Cho's fans."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"If you can stomach her often escalating vulgarity, you'll laugh and laugh hard."
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"Cho's bisexuality supplies her with double ammo when making sex jokes, which are her specialty."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Less structured and, as a result, funnier than Margaret's first!"
‑ David N. Butterworth, Movie Boeuf
"Preserves some indelible new routines."
‑ Tom Sime, Dallas Morning News
"Cho's impressions of her mom are legendary among fans, and for good reason."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"When the material is funny, it's extremely funny."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Cho's fearless in picking apart human foibles, not afraid to lay her life bare in front of an audience. Her delivery and timing are flawless."
‑ Jeffrey Bruner, Des Moines Register
"The level of comic invention is surprisingly low, and the resultant amusement spotty at best."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
