Storyline

Ineffectual, 'has-been' film-maker (Dennis Quaid) swindles his way into an interview with a film executive (Greg Kinnear) in order to pitch an outrageous and controversial comedy manuscript. After pitching the first of his thirteen offbeat fables, the dejected artist forces the rest of his disjointed allegory on the executive at gunpoint. He tells stories of a woman on a blind date with a man who has testicles growing from his neck, in another a smitten woman offers her neck to her boyfriend to 'poop' on -as a sign of commitment and love. In yet another two parents take home-schooling to a whole new level of indecency, striving to give their isolated teenage son all the 'regular' torment and humiliation of puberty by bullying, peer-pressuring and even seducing him themselves. An off-beat, elephant-in-the-room type film. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Hollywood's version of 2 girls 1 cup
24 April 2013 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Hollywood's version of 2 girls 1 cup. If you can somehow manage to finish watching this piece of s@#$t till the end they pay you a million dollars, or at least how it should be because this is not even funny. I can't believe actual respected actors took part in making this… I don't even know how to describe this… calling it a movie will be an insult to all movies out there… I have seen some stupid vile comedies in my days but this one takes the bank. I stopped watching after 30 minutes and honestly I don't know how I lasted that long. with the amount of stars on this film you can bet that this was a favor that all of them did for the creators or were blackmailed otherwise I really can' explain what on earth made this movie somewhat successful. VOLGUAR DISPLAY.
