In many ways, Artie Woods is a typical college senior: he's shy, a bit awkward, and is still trying to figure out how to fit in. But Artie has a problem that makes it difficult to interact with people. Since he was a child, Artie has been stricken with chronic flatulence, and while his good friend Bear accepts him as he is and gets him into a fraternity, not every one else is so charitable about Artie's frequent gaseous outbursts. Artie becomes infatuated with Andrea, a sexy co-ed, and to his surprise, Andrea seems interested in him as well. But Andrea is just using Artie to toy with her incredibly jealous boyfriend, and Artie doesn't recognize that Emily, a pretty transfer student he's become friendly with, has actually fallen in love with him. Billed as "the comedy that stinks." Written by
I thought a movie about man's favorite form of short-term disruption would be a little better than this. But it isn't even a 'movie'-its a long form video that KINDA looks like film, except for the bad choppy edits to disguise flubbed lines, etc.
Its that bad.
The 'college students' are played by men who are balder than the tires on my old Ford Tempo. That's a sign that something's wrong.
Basically this is a really bad college movie that attempts to use fart jokes to staple everything together. It doesn't work. The 'bad cop' who harasses our 'heroes' never gets any come-upance. The scenes of Artie's whacked out 70's parents (Hair that long in '76? Come on) are there for no reason. And the ability to pass wind at will doesn't fix any problems for our characters, nor is it cured by finding love. Its like someone threw a bunch of ideas into the air and filmed the ones that landed in the circle on the floor.
On top of that, its a cheap-o DVD too, with no title menu or even chapters. There are 'bloopers', but in a movie full of mistakes, who'd notice a blooper?
Man I'm glad I only paid $4.80 for this. I think I'll save it as a present for whichever of my loved ones ends up getting a lobotomy in the future. I can't fathom who else would actually like this thing.
