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
I had heard a good review from a YouTube channel from which I had previously gotten good information. However, this time the movie did not meet up to the review. It looks like the directors and screen writers have lost their sense of reality. No human being with an IQ over 40 would enjoy this film. There is no true story line. It looks like they just tried to string together a group of shorts which were originally filmed as a joke. It is just plain stupid.
The lack of plot is balanced by a remarkable cast of big name stars. They must have had a huge budget to get all of the big name actors, but this movie drops my opinion of every one of the actors. Other than the big name stars, the directors tried to raise interest in the movie by adding a few topless girls as the "iBabe," but even this was painful to watch. The movie may be tolerable if you turn off the sound so you don't have to listen to the nonsense.
