[Sees Ferris trying to do crazy paving]
What happened here?
It's crazy paving.
This isn't crazy paving Ferris, this is just shit.
I was trying to... you know?
You've got no artistic vision here, have you? It's just a random fucking big mess.
It's crazy paving, you just bung slabs down.
No, I think you're focusing too much on the crazy aspect, and not enough on the paving side of it.
Have you come round here just to have a go at my crazy paving?

Sex Lives of the Potato Men is about the sex lives of several men involved in delivering potatoes. So there are no surprises there. It is, in fact, pretty much what you might expect from the title: that is, it's a quirky comedy involving sex and potato men. At times the film works. It's an edgy, sometimes uncomfortable comedy about the lives of some rather unimportant and rather average men who are having problems of various sorts with women. Where the film clearly does not work, and why it failed at the box office, is that the quirky, uncomfortable parts are perhaps just a shade too quirky and uncomfortable. Instead of laughing during the scene of a man suspended from a basement ceiling masturbating over another man while he makes love to his wife, I think most of us just kind of groan awkwardly and wonder what Andy Humphries was thinking. Well, perhaps we are shown what he was thinking all too clearly.
