  How did the embarrassing, disheartening "Marci X" happen? This clumsy attempt at satirizing celebrity, censorship, New York high society and the hip-hop lifestyle is an awful subway-wreck. "Marci X" should've been a wacky, laugh-a-minute lark — its script was the work of usually-witty columnist and screenwriter Paul Rudnick ("Addams Family Values"), it was directed by Richard Benjamin (whose "My Favorite Year" was a memorable look at the Golden Age of TV comedy), and it stars quirky, lovable "Friends" ditz Lisa Kudrow and no-holds-barred, ghetto-fabulous comic actor Damon Wayans. Instead, it's a smug, way-more-miss-than-hit parade of feeble, cutesy stabs at humor. Among his holdings, wealthy Ben Feld (Benjamin) owns a record label that's under fire from conservative Sen. Mary Ellen Spinkle (Christine Baranski) for issuing CDs by vulgar rapper Dr. S (Wayans). Feld's daughter Marci (Kudrow) tries save Daddy's rep by taming Dr. S, who wants no interference from the spoiled, uptight heiress. With its shallow, shopaholic Jewish American Princess and lame-brained African-American gangsta rapper, "Marci X" manages to be offensive to two minorities at once.
