Mondo Cane, the Sequel
20 January 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Assuming this is an actual account of the experiences of the central character, it is more pathetic than amusing.

On the one hand Patrick seems rather brave to choose to propose marriage in a stadium full of people, but rather childish to think that such an act was in any way cool and equally childish to have so poorly understood his relationship with the woman … who promptly refused him. If she at least cared for him a little she might have said she wasn't ready to marry, but to say it was because his penis was too small was clearly aimed at making him more miserable. What kind of relationship had this been? Why was she still in it if she was so eager to bail and cause some pain while doing so?

In the same way, his willingness to announce to everyone, from his mother to his friends to a classroom full of strangers in Korea to an assortment of "professionals" who deal with male genitalia that his penis is small suggests a somewhat brave, self-confident person, but that is obviously not who he really is.

That he as an individual is obsessed with this issue after being publicly humiliated might be somewhat understandable, but what I found surprising is that coping with this real or imagined problem has created a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide and that some men are willing to do bizarre things like lift 300 pound weights tied to their genitals or allow mutilations by injections or surgery in a totally vain attempt to find a solution.

But again Patrick seems to make himself seem more silly than determined. Even his mother tells him he is a quitter, which is borne out by behavior on this sojourn. He is bouncing around the world looking for an answer, but when he is set to bravely undergo some dubious injections he runs away at the last moment and when about to undergo plastic surgery, the sight of someone else under the knife sends him running off to vomit from fear or revulsion. And when he decides to head back home he first withdraws into a petulant silence and then has a hissy fit of self- loathing when it finally dawns on him how ridiculous it all is.

He should have probably listened to some good advice he received while on his quest for a magic solution. One gay guy (Savage?) said he had no problem with a partner's relatively small penis, but could not endure the partner's constant obsessive moaning about it. He and an Asian women both said there was a lot more to loving someone than this one, probably exaggerated, characteristic flaw. In a way Patrick did seem to finally absorb this wisdom and start to develop a relationship with a woman he met along the way. She too seemed unconcerned by his supposed inadequacy, but she also appeared to be a little wary that Patrick wouldn't stop obsessing about it.

Overall the "documentary" had less to do with the "size matters" issue, although it was amazing how many people were bothered by it, and more to do with a sadly immature person whose underdeveloped sense of self was a bigger problem than his possibly underdeveloped genitals.

It all might appeal to prurient teenagers or someone studying personality disorders, but there's not much for anyone else in this "documentary."
