decide for yourself-it is a different kind of humor-overall it IS a comedy, 7 April 2013
Author: thepotatoHasEyes from United States

Frankie goes boom, sometimes , to me , seems too "real" to be funny, but at that same moment , it makes you laugh,, ...hard to describe,

It has a real "grittiness" to the humor,...I kept saying to myself, this is not going to be funny"...and then finding myself laughing ...

I am on my third watching, so it has my "re watcher" stamp, but still that feeling remains.

"franky goes boom' has the ability to make you uncomfortable, it also has the ability to make you laugh...

I definitely recommend "franky" as a comedy , but you REALLY need to have a sense of humor--if not , you wont enjoy.

It got a 7 out of ten rating , and a re watcher stamp from me .
