Best of all, it proves that there are still directors cut from the John Waters mold who aren't content just to push the envelope -- they rip right through it.

Like everything else Parker puts his mind to -- is equally outlandish, part skewed morality play, part sophomoric slapstick, and wholly ridiculous.

Like "There's Something About Mary," Orgazmo has a very sweet love story at its core, although it's more consistently entertaining, blending some outrageous moments with a surprising degree of restraint.
50
Cheerfully raunchy and undeserving of its prohibitive NC-17 rating, Orgazmo is a harmless sex farce.

One of those things that probably seems hilarious when a couple of guys are sitting around hashing out the plot over a couple of beers.

Entertainment Weekly
Dian Bachar, as Joe's pint-size sidekick, sounds the only note of sly wit; the unidentified stripper playing T-Rex delivers the only real shock value. The movie could have used a lot more of both.

TV Guide
It's all pretty tasteless, but surprisingly chaste and not very funny.
25
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Pretty limp, and works far better in theory than practice.
20
The wackiness that unfolds is boring, ridiculous and, to most, offensive.
12
The very soul of sophomorism. It is callow, gauche, obvious and awkward, and designed to appeal to those with similar qualities.
