Storyline

A loser with a crummy apartment, an odious mother, and a job that isn't taking him anywhere (kid's clown), gets a new idea. He decides that he's going to be a clown for bachelor parties. He will dress up like a woman clown and play a joke on the groom. After that the real stripper will come out and everyone will have a good laugh. He goes to his first job (changing his clown name from Flappy to Vulgar). When he opens the door he is knocked cold. What follows is a story of violation, fame, blackmail, and revenge.

Self-Titled
14 August 2003 | by (Sherwood Forest) – See all my reviews

I just finished a movie that took me a long time to finally see. I had wanted to see if for a while, but due to many disturbing reviews I backed off. Until tonight when I popped it in and decided to see for myself how messed up this movie would be. There is no mistaken it, this movie is Vulgar and what you will and will not see is disturbing. Maybe it's because my mind prepared me for the worst case scenario, but it was not as grossest as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong the invasion and rape of Brian O'Halloran's character is very hard to watch at times. They do a good job of not only making this messed up storyline, but actually building a real storyline with substance.

This movie is not for everyone. That is for damn sure. Most View Askew fans will probably check it out just because they want to see the old familiar gang in yet another movie. We get to see the useless existence of a man who is a kid's clown. He lives in a run down home in a beat up neighborhood. He wants to make something of himself, when he comes up with a scheme. It goes terribly wrong and his life is flipped upside down. We get to see him pull his life together again and make something of himself, when slowly the skeletons leak out of the closet and the madness begins. Even Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes show up in this movie.

Inclosing, if you think you can deal with a movie exploring topics like rape and violence then check out this movie. If you don't have a stomach for that, you might just want to take a pass.
