The flaws can be summed up by describing it as a low-budget, hastily assembled, early 00s comedy. But there's more than a few winning jokes, Adam Goldberg is great as the Semitic Stallion, and the love for community and genre is evident. Catch some more gentile opinions on the latest 96 Greers, and have a safe and happy Chanukah!
I have no idea how to rate Body of Evidence. Compared to a film I've previously given five stars-- say, Citizen Kane-- is it a bad movie? Absolutely. But on the other hand, were we scrolling through Hulu and Patrick commented "her pussy is the murder weapon" and I said "you're making that up" and then he started telling me about this movie and I started laughing so we put it on and laughed and yelled at our tv for almost two hours straight? Also absolutely, so who's to say.
More movies where sexism is depicted as a pervasive atmospheric discomfort, instead of One Clearly Defined Issue/Person.
More movies about groups of women supporting each other, professionally and emotionally.
More movies with complex black women as the protagonists.
More movies where the local hangout is better than the soulless corporate tentacle in some respects but it's still not great, because the boss is still a boss.
More movies with butch women who don't exist as a joke or a threat to feminine women.
