Disappointing Follow-Up to "Haggard"
13 March 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Minghags" (which is a great title, by the way) is Bam Margera's second feature as director, and was completely not worth it. His first film, "Haggard," is an excellent example of a real low-budget independent film; though Margera is rich and produced it with his own money, he produced it entirely out of the Hollywood mainstream with no studio interference. It was also well-made and atmospheric. A counterpoint to this type of film would be "Clerks," which began its life as a legitimate independent film, but was quickly bought up and co-opted by Disney, who added a terrible soundtrack that cost ten times the original budget (the music itself is not necessarily bad, but it doesn't work within the context of the movie).

"Minghags" is basically a remake of "Haggard," only with the plots reversed: in "Haggard," the main story is about Ryan Dunn breaking up with his girlfriend, and the subplot is about DiCamillo the inventor and his "garbage juicer," which turns garbage into root beer (arguably the single worst idea since "Cop Rock"). In "Minghags," the main plot is about DiCamillo and his garbage juicer, and the subplot is about Dunn breaking up with his girlfriend.

The worst aspect of "Minghags" is that is has an absolutely terrible ending which doesn't resolve anything and trails off into nothingness; we are then treated to ten minutes of behind-the-scenes footage WITHIN THE ACTUAL MOVIE. Secondly, a lot of it is just plain old not funny. It is quite blatantly homophobic, and contains more homosexual stereotypes than the X-rated version of "Sweatin' to the Oldies." There's stuff like Don Vito repeatedly threatening to kill Dunn for supposedly being gay, and it's played for laughs. Sorry, that's not funny.

Also, much of the filmmaking in "Minghags" is just awful. It's unbelievably awful. This film contains more camera zooms than an Umberto Lenzi giallo, and that is a hell of a lot of zooms. The whole movie seems awkward and overplayed, and the script just makes no damn sense at all. Nearly everything that happens in this movie feels completely random, but not in an intentional, absurdist way (like in a Bunuel or Jodoworosky film). It honestly seems like they were making it up as they went along. The film does certainly have a few good parts, like Dunn (who is, like, 100 times the moron in this film than he was in "Haggard;" this guy CAN NOT see the forest for the trees when it comes to his "girlfriend") freaking out after having sex with a random woman, then stealing the underwear guy's car, or freaking out at the dinner table and farting incessantly, scaring the hell out of Phil Margera (who, I must say, was absolutely hilarious in this film). Or any scene where DiCamillo is playing the Penguin-like villain who wants to steal the garbage juicer for some inexplicable reason. The scene where he goes for his morning jog on a treadmill is hilarious. To be sure, there are parts in the film which are just as beautifully atmospheric as "Haggard," but these are few and far between. Ultimately, the only really good thing about it is DiCamillo, a brilliant comedic talent. Oh, and sorry, but I don't need to see Margera pissing, or a gay man defecating on camera, thanks.

In any case, if you compare both films, it will become obvious quickly why one was distributed (albiet direct-to-video) and why one never saw the light of day.
