Shortly after seeing the first rushes, Gary Coleman had a seizure and was rushed to hospital. While he recovered from this, he died shortly after and before he could take any legal action against the producers for the full frontal nude shot that he didn't agree to be used in the film. See more »
Saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival and it lived up to all the buzz about it. Dubbed as a cross between Borat and Jackass, I'd definitely agree. MVM is hilariously gross, shocking, and offensive, but all in a good way. On top of it all throw in angry Gary Coleman and this movie is really really funny.
The premise is that a deceased little person, former-mascot, porn-mogul sets up a contest in his will between a team of mascots and little people each led by his d-bag son and gold digger 3rd wife. The contest pits the little people and mascots in crazy contests like alligator wrestling, "how may insults does it take to get punched", and drinking games.
While the absurdity of all of the contests is great, it's really the characters themselves that make the film. All of the characters have great one-liners at some point throughout and i can't wait to see it again to pick up on the ones i missed.
I really hope it goes to a wide release so I can bring my friends.
