Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Joey Lauren Adams,
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
Flappy calls Mrs. "Affleck" to tell her he won't be able to do the party. "Benny" then gets on the phone and talks him into it. A reference to Ben Affleck who has appeared in most of Kevin Smith's films. See more »
Near the end, when Ed Fanelli dies of heart failure, we can see him moving and breathing even as Will/Flappy kicks him. See more »

When I watched this film I had no idea what to expect. I am a big fan of Kevin Smith's films, and was eager to see this when I learned of his involvement (and Jason Mewes too!), having enjoyed his unique brand of humour many times before. Therefore this film was not quite what I was expecting. It does in many parts contain that Kevin Smith style humour, but countered by a few extremely dark, disturbing moments. The problem with this film is exactly it's main attribute, and that is that it feels so real when you're watching it, I came away feeling like it had all happened to me, which is one of the hardest things to achieve in a film. The acting was good, the plot was brilliantly original and the acting was very convincing. The only reservations I have are that at times I really didn't want to be watching it. But that said I'm glad I did!
