Marci X

Marci X ★ 2003 (R)

Ill-begotten social satire stars Kudrow as the title character, who takes over for dad Ben (director Benjamin) at his record company after he suffers a heart attack. When the the lyrics of Dr. S (Wayans), the label's top rapper, provoke conservative U.S. Senator Spinkle (Baranski) to attempt to ban the rapper's songs, the uptown, Jewish Marci tries to smooth things over and ends up falling for the Dr.'s downtown charms. Culture clash comedy has its moments, but is ultimately too predictable and the characters too one-dimensional to care about. Rap soundtrack is similarly uninspired, except a hilarious number by the fictitious boy band, Boyz ‘R' Us. 97m/C VHS, DVD . US Lisa Kudrow, Damon Wayans, Richard Benjamin, Christine Baranski, Paula Garces, Jane Krakowski, Veanne Cox; D: Richard Benjamin; W: Paul Rudnick; C: Robbie Greenberg; M: Mervyn Warren.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
