Storyline

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

Trivia

The clips from the movie that are seen playing in the video store were taken from a fake trailer for the film, made by the filmmakers before production ever started, which was shown to potential financial backers to try to raise money to make the film. (This is discussed in the "drunken commentary" feature on the DVD) See more »

Goofs

While showing Joe the Orgazmorater in his basement, Ben tells him that it is powered by a fission device. Later, during the fight scene with Maxx Orbinson, the Orgazmorater runs out of batteries. See more »

Rude, crude, and hilarious
21 January 2003 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

Sometimes I just need brain candy. When I need brain candy, I can rely on Matt Stone and Trey Parker to deliver.

Orgazmo is full of potty humour, blasphemy, and other rudeness. It relentlessly mocks religious zealots, the porn industry, and nearly everything in between.

There is nothing good about the acting or production qualities -- in fact, the *poor* acting and production qualities add to the humour, I think, in the same way that the cheesy attempt at animation adds to the humour of South Park. The entertainment value of 'Orgazmo' lies primarily in the situation -- and even if the individual jokes are not fantastically original, the situation *is*. It's just good, stupid fun.

Think of the rudest, raunchiest of all the South Park episodes -- like the one where Cartman joins NAMBLA, or the one where the kids start a fad of sexually stimulating dogs. If you enjoyed those, you will probably enjoy Orgazmo. If you didn't appreciate the humour or found them offensive, don't bother with this movie.

Personally, my tastes are so base that I consider this one of the funniest comedies I've ever seen.
