A loser with a crummy apartment, an odious mother, and a job that isn't taking him anywhere (kid's clown), gets a new idea. He decides that he's going to be a clown for bachelor parties. He will dress up like a woman clown and play a joke on the groom. After that the real stripper will come out and everyone will have a good laugh. He goes to his first job (changing his clown name from Flappy to Vulgar). When he opens the door he is knocked cold. What follows is a story of violation, fame, blackmail, and revenge.Written by
Johnson cast his mother, father and cousin in brief cameos. His mother walking their late dog, his father as a rape/torture victim trapped in a metal contraption and his cousin as a young delinquent who attacks Flappy. His grandmother is a resident at the Shady Acres Retirement Home. See more »

This is one hell of a movie. At times it's funny, and at times it's sad.
Many people don't like this film because it's disturbing. Well, it is. But you just have to get over it. People hated this film being disturbing because they weren't expecting it, they thought it was a light comedy. So just go into it knowing your going to be changed.
For the fainter of heart, rent the Rated version. The rape scene is much shorter. But keep in mind, that wasn't the director's vision.
Great acting, great writing, great directing, great film.
