Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic | 2005 | NR | - 8.5.8

Comedienne Sarah Silverman's live performance, framed by songs and a subplot concerning a couple of her friends, tackles many subjects, from religion to sex, to race to the Holocaust and 9/11, in exceptionally explicit fashion. Also with Brian Posehn, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Silverman and La'vin Kiyano. Directed by Liam Lynch. [1:12]

SEX/NUDITY 8 - We see a woman leaning over a table with a man thrusting from behind her (the woman is imagining herself in a pornographic movie). A man masturbates offstage while watching a woman perform her comedy routine (we hear rhythmic squishy sounds). A man tells a woman that he will masturbate another man into a cup for her. A woman talks about watching a pornographic movie and that a man was masturbating in the movie.
 A woman kisses her reflection in a mirror with extreme passion (she moans a lot) for an extended period, and a woman leans into a mirror as if to kiss her reflection.
 A woman talks about licking jelly off her boyfriend's genitals. A woman talks about a man dipping a part of his genitals into a drink. A woman talks about showering with her boyfriend and that her chest always ends up extremely clean.
 A woman stands in front of a man, she raises his legs and she thrusts toward him as if they are having sex. A woman holds a microphone to her crotch and another one to her anus and we hear voices singing a song.
 A woman sings a song about taking drugs so that you can have sex without crying, having sex with her father, and "gang banging." A woman talks about birth control methods, about different types of sexual intercourse, and about her 7-year-old niece coming out as gay.
 A woman wears a short top and low slung pants that reveal her bare abdomen and a woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage.
 A woman talks about exotic dancers and that exotic dance clubs are a gateway to porn. A woman talks about suing her agent for sexual harassment even though he didn't do anything.

 A woman talks about the Holocaust and refers to it as the "alleged" Holocaust (being ironic). A woman talks about 9/11 and how the airlines could use that scenario as a positive in their advertising.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
