Joe Young was a simple young man trying to spread the word of the Book of Mormon when he picked the wrong house to preach at! The owner, a porn director named Maxxx Orbison, tells his henchmen to kill the guy at the door who interrupted their scene, but Joe fights off the guards with great skill, which impresses Maxxx so much that he offers Joe the lead role in the movie he's making at the moment: Orgazmo, which is about a sex superhero who fights crime with his Orgazmorator, and ChodaBoy, his sidekick. Joe, against his beliefs, takes the job so that he can pay for the wedding he plans for himself and his fiancée, whom he doesn't tell about his risqué new acting job. However, when the movie becomes an amazing hit just about everywhere and he finds out that Ben (ChodaBoy) has created a real Orgazmorator, Joe is in some serious hot water! Written by Danii

Lowbrow comedy brings a lot of laughs...
1 November 1999 | by (Barry, Texas USA) – See all my reviews

Orgazmo appeared and disappeared faster in 1997 than Showgirls. Part of the blame is the nefarious NC-17 rating which both did not deserve. However, Orgazmo is the better of both films simply because it tries much harder than Showgirls did to deliver a product based purely on shock value.

Orgazmo is the story of a young Mormon languishing in the cesspool that is Los Angeles try to convert the jaded populace into members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He fails at that, but succeeds at being the luckless star of low-budget adult film, Orgazmo, featuring a super-hero who wears a weapon that induces instantaneous orgasms in his foes and a stalwart sidekick, Choda-Boy, who wears a serendipitous dildo atop his head.

The performances were rather good, especially director/writer Trey Parker as our heroic protagonist, and Dian Bachar, as the scientist turned porn star. While the film was made on a shoestring budget, and boy, does it show, it is earnest, funny, and well-paced. Parker took a mere $600,000 and really crafted a terrific movie that no one will likely ever see.
