When a tragic accident ends the life of Mr. Rose, the genius behind Rose's Manure Company, the livelihood of its loyal fleet of salesmen threatens to go, as they say, into the toilet. Enter estranged daughter Rosemary, a high-class- cosmetics salesgirl, who steps in to take control. She is not sure she has a nose for the family business, but she is determined to make foul into profit. Little does she know that a ruthless, slick-talking fertilizer rep is plotting a takeover. Whether she likes it or not, she must trust her top salesman, Patrick Fitzpatrick, to devise a plan to regain Rose's rightful position on top of the heap. Written by
not bad, defiantly rent first cause it's an acquired taste,
A great subtle, somewhat dry and simple comedy that never takes itself seriously. It follows a group of manure salesman in the 1960s who find themselves in competition with a ridiculously over the top company. This movie is certainly not one of the best movies I've seen but it is entertaining and a good one to pick up from the library or to watch on Netflix.
The acting is excellent, the cinematography is pleasantly artsy, the dialogue is non-stop manure puns with some alright other jokes and it's a good length for the kind of movie that it is. Billy Bob Thornton, Tea Leoni and Ed Helms are perfect leads. The soundtrack is pretty great. My only complaints is that it almost seems unorganized because so many weird and random things are happening all the time that sometimes it's hard to fully grasp why and what just happened.
Language is fairly clean, no sex, nudity or gore. Just a lot of poop jokes and strange events about a company trying to stay afloat and sell manure.
