Marci X is a 2003 American romantic comedy film, directed by Richard Benjamin and written by Paul Rudnick. It stars Lisa Kudrow as Jewish-American Princess Marci Feld, who has to take control of a hip-hop record label, as well as the controversial rapper Dr. S, played by Damon Wayans.
Marci Feld (Lisa Kudrow), a spoiled Jewish-American princess, is forced to take control of her father's hardcore rap label, Felony Assault, when her father Ben (Richard Benjamin) suffers a stress-induced heart attack due to the controversy surrounding the label's song "Shoot Ya' Teacha" by Dr. S (Damon Wayans). To rescue her father's plummeting stock, Marci attempts to tone down the rapper's bad-boy image. Over time, the unlikely pair falls in love just as conservative senator Mary Ellen Spinkle (Christine Baranski) vows to banish Dr. S and his offensive lyrics from the airwaves forever.
