Plot: In 1994, Korean-American comedian Margaret Cho had parlayed her winning streak as a stand-up performer into a deal with ABC television, which lead to her starring in "All-American Girl"--the first US television series about an Asian-American family. The short-lived sitcom saw ABC attempt to force Cho to compromise everything from her stage persona to her weight. The experience left her both mentally and physically distressed, sending her into a period of drug and alcohol abuse. IM THE ONE sees the triumphant San Francisco homecoming of her 1999 one-woman show of the same name, in which she reflects on the experience that saw her become a part of television history, ruining her health in the process. Along with this experience, Cho ruminates on other topics such as sex, drugs, alcohol, her mother, and her search for validation, all things which those familiar with Cho have heard her discuss before. Never one to mince words, Chos frankness is her greatest asset, and it suits her show wonderfully. Those who are easily offended should stay away, but IM THE ONE combines raucous humor with a lot of honesty and heart--two things that most films could use a bit more of.
