Storyline

Muffin Man is a "Mockumentary" of the downfall of the human species due to our social excesses (mostly over-eating). Thousands of years in the future, anthropologists from a distant galaxy are studying the ancient planet, Earth. Presented as a history lesson, the story follows the evolution of the human race from Homo Sapiens (Modern Man) to Homo Twinkus (also known as ... "Muffin Man"), while simultaneously interweaving an age-old love story: Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl's abusive ex-boyfriend tries to steal girl back. Boy fights ex-boyfriend and wins his love's heart. Boy has ill-fated encounter with one too many donuts. Written by Jessica Eisner

Long live Muffin Man!
22 December 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Ok, as Executive Producer of this film, I admit that I'm a little biased (I'm saying that up front so no one accuses me of ballot stuffing) ... but audiences genuinely love this movie!

Muffin Man is a hilarious, yet frightening look at the obesity epidemic that led to the extinction of the human race. This movie is an absolute "Must See" for anyone concerned about the ballooning size of the American population. However, the movie is not about making fun of fat people - the humor is derived from social commentary about the general excesses of modern civilization and all its foibles (violence, race, religion, sex, and of course, our love of food are all fair game in this movie). What makes this movie so successful is the combination of truthfulness in its message and complete outrageousness in its delivery of that message. The characters are completely real people, but are complete caricatures of themselves. The jokes are a combination of very subtle high brow cynicism and low brow crudeness that makes you catch yourself when all of a sudden you're embarrassed that you're laughing so loudly.

Go see Muffin Man - this is going to be a classic that will entertain audiences for many years to come!
