I just watched this hugely entertaining tell-all, a rental fromNetflix. If I weren't in the habit of sending the discs backimmediately, I'd have watched it again. Carrie Fisher is clearly ahighly intelligent -- if deeply neurotic --woman, but her frankness andwit even out the score. She skewers everyone in her path, but with suchhumor and self-deprecation that she has the audience with her all theway. She strikes me as someone who would be fun to know. But....Perhaps at a slight distance. As others have written, the best part ofthe show is the Hollywood Genealogy Chart, and boy, does she have funwith it! So do we. Eddie Fisher, her father, receives most of thepoisoned darts, but he clearly deserved them. But she must haveforgiven him long ago; the show is dedicated to him.

Carrie Fisher's one-woman Broadway show is a laid back treatise on lifeas a celebrity and a celebrity spawn. Fisher dishes on her famousparents but doesn't dig too deeply into her own battles with drugs,alcohol and celebrity. The highlight is a giant chalkboard of herfamous family tree with which she tries to discern whether her daughtershould date a man that may or may not be a relative. And yes, she donsthe famous braids to remind us of the opportunity that allowed her tostep out of her famous parents' shadow and into cultural iconography.All in all, Fisher is honest, blunt, and a bit too relaxed at times toadd anything but kick-back giggles, but to ask more may be just wishfulthinking.
I've never been the biggest Carrie Fisher fan! I've loved her books andscreenplays like the wonderful "Postcards From The Edge", but I'venever really gone for Star Wars movies.
Still, I adore her personality and strengths. This act is hystericallyfunny and moving! I simply love her charm and wit. She never wallows inself-pity like so many other movie stars. She can look back on herproblems and make something funny out of them, which is something Ialways encourage. Why take life so seriously?
Also, who knew she had such a lovely singing voice? Why hasn't she everdone a movie musical or done something on Broadway. The Great White Wayis ready for you, my dear!
Why sit down and explain it? Just go out there and rent or buy it! It'sa terrific hour and a half of fun!
