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.

Just Plain Bad
28 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For Howard Stern to be repulsed by a movie, you know that you're in for something special. Vulgar is the proper title for this work, which features a clown being gang raped. Kevin Smith produced this stomach churning work. Will makes a living as a birthday clown at kids parties, when he comes up with the idea to expand into the world of bachelor parties. He dresses in lingerie and strips to garters to fool the client into believing that he is gay. One day, while walking in his strange outfit, he is brutally assaulted by a guy and his two sons. They videotape the attack and warn him not to go to the police or they will embarrass him with the tape. He later rescues a kid and becomes the hero clown on the news. As a result, he gets a TV show, and his rapists extort him for money, while holding the tape over his head. He sets up a meeting in order to resolve the issue, and it leads to a silly ending. Bad acting and camera work make Vulgar a waste of time.
