Cynthia Nixon's performance is terrific. She is very funny. CM gets herself into a lot of ridiculous situations with packing tape, wire hangers, etc., and oddly, it is easy to relate.I also liked all of the references to the Bush administration, global warming, school privatization and health insurance. Just out there enough to be funny. It did take me a little while to get into the book, though. I didn't get it at first. Once I figured out the point of view, I kept going.
I would definitely recommend Cursing Mommy, because it is funny!
Mommy herself. Cynthia Nixon gives her just the right edge.
Yes, but I think it would be tough to translate to the screen, as so much of it is interior monologue.
I found myself quoting lines from the book throughout the day. Like, when I was on hold with the @#$% health insurance company. Oh, and maybe this is self evident, but if you are offended by cursing, you won't like this book.
