Story is weak but the effects are fun to watch
13 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know if I'd say this is a terrible movie because it does have a bunch of redeeming qualities, like Dian Bachar starring in it (Choda Boy) is great! They had some cool locations and there are some really funny scenes in it. Mostly the ones where some sort of fluid is shooting around, whether it be blood, semen, urine, are the funniest. Lots of funny props and cool stunts in it.

I didn't know what really to expect in a movie with a title like this. And after it was over, I still didn't know what really to make of it. It for sure had funny moments in it. It's probably a great movie to throw on in the background of a party or something.

Also if you're watching the DVD, there are some really outrageous deleted scenes.
