Strangers With Candy

Comedienne Amy Sedaris takes her freakishly warped Comedy Central series out for a spin of the big screen. Sedaris stars as Jerri Blank, a 46-year-old semi-reformed crack whore who goes back to high school in a bid to start her life over. Like an afterschool special gone horribly wrong, the series mixes cheerful life lessons with boatloads of politically incorrect humor. It's not as tightly-knit as the series, of course, but it's still got some solid laughs. Look for guest appearances by Stephen Colbert, Ian Holm, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and Philip Seymour Hoffman. 87 minutes R.
