Storyline

This film also includes parody previews to three non-existant movies. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Worst possible movie ever!!!
23 August 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I recommend everyone stay away from When Nature Calls. I have seen some really lame movies in my years, but this one takes the cake, and to think I paid hard-earned money for this video makes me nauseous.

First of all, on the video, you have to muddle through 25 minutes of absolutely, positively HORRENDOUS previews of parody movies and HORRIBLE interviews made by this video company. If that isn't enough to bury someone, the movie starts and is even worse. And, if that wasn't enough, read on.....I gave up the ghost during "intermission" where a hot dog was "masturbating on popcorn", noses with glasses were "snorting cocaine", hog dogs were "drinking alcohol", and a marijuana leaf "rolled itself into a joint, stood up, and bowed", among other things that were totally rude, crude, and insulting. It couldn't get worse than this "movie"!

It was mentioned that this movie is similar to Airplane, but I don't see any resemblance whatsoever. Airplane is an Oscar winner in comparison!

It took a really sick mind to create this bunch of dogma!
