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
"Artie AKA F.A.R.T. The Movie" does not meet with the fart joke quota one would expect from both the movies title and premise. It instead is a tame romantic comedy with a few fart jokes thrown in. Thats not to say the movie is entirely unfunny but I can't help feel disappointed that the premise was not taken further. The movie would have been more interesting if it were in the tradition of the remarkable comedy "Senseless", setting up more wacky gas related prediciment's for artie, in which then hilarity would ensue as he tries to overcome them.
