Strangers With Candy


strangerswithcandy47-year-old ex-con Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris) promises her comatose dad (Dan Hedaya) to go back to high school. Thatā€™s the plot and fans of the original TV show (which ran from 1999-2000) will recognize it. One has to wonder why they didnā€™t try to expand the story a bit, but the cast is pretty intact and much of the material is funny. Sedaris plays the outrageously vulgar Jerri Blank with great enthusiasm and co-writer Stephen Colbert is hilarious as her bitter teacher. Still, viewers are likely to give up on the characters and the thin premise after a while.

Quote:Ā ā€œHello, Iā€™m Jerri Blank and ā€“ and Iā€™m an alcoholic. Iā€™m also addicted to amphetamines as well as main line narcotics. Some people say I have a sex addiction, but I think all those years of prostitution was just a means to feed my ravenous hunger for heroin. Itā€™s kinda like the chicken or the nugget. The point is, Iā€™m addicted to gambling. Thank you.ā€ (Sedaris introducing herself in class)
