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.

Brilliantly disturbing.
27 August 2002 | by (Swansea, UK) – See all my reviews

When I watched this film I had no idea what to expect. I am a big fan of Kevin Smith's films, and was eager to see this when I learned of his involvement (and Jason Mewes too!), having enjoyed his unique brand of humour many times before. Therefore this film was not quite what I was expecting. It does in many parts contain that Kevin Smith style humour, but countered by a few extremely dark, disturbing moments. The problem with this film is exactly it's main attribute, and that is that it feels so real when you're watching it, I came away feeling like it had all happened to me, which is one of the hardest things to achieve in a film. The acting was good, the plot was brilliantly original and the acting was very convincing. The only reservations I have are that at times I really didn't want to be watching it. But that said I'm glad I did!
