Consensus: Silverman's brand of humor is dirty, offensive, and, judging from this film, very, very funny.

Tim Arthur
Time Out

Not to everyone's taste but her legions of internet fans won't be disappointed. Anyone who can come up with a line like 'I don't care if you think I'm a racist, I just want you to think I'm thin,' is okay in our books.

As a concert film, Jesus Is Magic proves totally lacking in electricity, and for me, even the funnier lines produced only chuckles.

It's a brutally disappointing and unfunny movie for such a hilarious woman.

I wouldn't take my mother, but this stand-up movie is pretty funny.

Jesus Is Magic is the second part of the title of comic Sarah Silverman's very funny, very wrong movie, which weaves wacky musical numbers and odd backstage moments with an L.A. performance of her one-woman show.

Silverman's full-on approach works because she unflinchingly examines these themes with a disarming sweetness.

Silverman comes across as a racist, callous diva in Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic.

Silverman's abrasive material is funny because her approach is friendly.

Her comic persona is that of a clueless and politically incorrect hipster who says terrible things without being aware of their shock value. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

If you took away all the musical numbers than this could have been a lot better.

I'm not sure if Silverman is an edgy genius or an intensely irritating attention seeking egotist. A bit like Robin Williams. She undoubtedly has no fear… More

Not as funny as her TV show and considerably less charming. But, she's still just as hot.
