I never thought a documentary about dick tricks could be so entertaining! In the beginning of this film, I found myself being almost prudish to this subject matter- after all it was a documentary about two stand-up comedians who play with their genitals.
Produced and directed by radio and television guru, Mick Malloy- this taboo topic becomes a hilarious insight to a controversial yet somewhat juvenile style of comedy of a stage performance entitled Puppetry of the Penis. Yet it is completely hilarious to watch these two brave men and their explicit humour. Although 'Tackle Happy' is not for everyone, some people might find it offensive or tasteless! I thought it was pretty funny and entertaining but unfortunately it didn't explore the two characters or the opposing views to the subject matter enough. It merely relied on the shock value that the two main characters use to display the unique but limited brand of humour. Either way, 'Tackle Happy' becomes a road-movie style documentary about two unknown comedians that proves to be quite funny.
*** out of *****!
