Storyline

Cooper and Ed are brothers: Coop acts, in ads and soaps, spending his real energy chasing women for one-night stands. His younger brother Ed, an earnest young man, works in an ad agency. For the past year, since finding his girlfriend in bed with another man with a video camera running, Ed has been in a funk: he's carried a torch, his social life has tanked, and his work has suffered. Ed will be fired on Monday unless he can save a major account. It's his birthday weekend: he wants to work, but Cooper wants Ed to rediscover his sex life. Cooper works hard to help Ed score, but disaster piles on disaster. Can a decent guy save his job and get a life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fart Joke The Movie
15 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by some of the posters. This movie does have a plot! Boy loves to make home movies. Boy becomes man. Man has woman. Woman eats best friend's cum and films it. Man finds woman and friend. Man throws away camera. Now man can't get laid. Because man can't get laid man loses creativity and will lose job. Brother vows to help man get laid. Brother gets laid, man ends up in prison... and almost gets laid. People fart. A lot.

The two leads are likable and as in any decent fart 'n sex movie there are loads of pretty chicks. Some do gross stuff. Others look at man doing gross stuff. Insert the odd joke. More often than not the jokes are lame, pathetic and just disgusting.

Must admit I did chuckle a few times and laughed out loud at least once. The best part in the movie are the unrated home bloopers, but not all of them are fun to watch. Some should just be deleted permanently from this world. All in all an OK watch, but the movie is plain bad by any movie standards. Still can be a guilty pleasure and will probably sell with testosterone booming youth.
