Joe Young was a simple young man trying to spread the word of the Book of Mormon when he picked the wrong house to preach at! The owner, a porn director named Maxxx Orbison, tells his henchmen to kill the guy at the door who interrupted their scene, but Joe fights off the guards with great skill, which impresses Maxxx so much that he offers Joe the lead role in the movie he's making at the moment: Orgazmo, which is about a sex superhero who fights crime with his Orgazmorator, and ChodaBoy, his sidekick. Joe, against his beliefs, takes the job so that he can pay for the wedding he plans for himself and his fiancée, whom he doesn't tell about his risqué new acting job. However, when the movie becomes an amazing hit just about everywhere and he finds out that Ben (ChodaBoy) has created a real Orgazmorator, Joe is in some serious hot water!Written by
The clips from the movie that are seen playing in the video store were taken from a fake trailer for the film, made by the filmmakers before production ever started, which was shown to potential financial backers to try to raise money to make the film. (This is discussed in the "drunken commentary" feature on the DVD) See more »
While showing Joe the Orgazmorater in his basement, Ben tells him that it is powered by a fission device. Later, during the fight scene with Maxx Orbinson, the Orgazmorater runs out of batteries. See more »

The Region 1 DVD release of the film is offered in two versions: the U. S. theatrical cut (rated NC-17) or the "unrated" cut, which was previously available in some markets outside the United States. The two are only minimally different, and the unrated cut contains no extra scenes. The changes in the unrated cut include:
Many sound effects have been altered or removed entirely.
A number of the pop songs used in the soundtrack have been replaced with a score, and several musical cues have been altered.
Several lines sound as if they were taken from different takes of the scene or overdubs and have different inflections. This is most noticeable with Maxxx Orbison's (Michael Dean Jacobs) lines.
The opening scenes of Joe's (Trey Parker) missionary work and Candi (Chasey Lain) and Rodgers (Andrew Kemler) filming a scene are cross-cut instead of presenting the scenes in their entirety.
There is more use of profanity, most notably the "f" word and its variations.
A few lines of dialog are different, such as in the scene between Joe and the DVDA woman (Cathy Fitzpatrick), but the core meaning/plot of the scenes is unchanged.
Underrated porn parody from Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Orgazmo (1997) was the second live action feature film from the South Park duo. Following Cannibal: The Musical, the duo of Trey Parker and Matt Stone satire the world of "Adult Entertainment".
The story follows the exploits of a Mormon missionary named Joe (Trey Parker) who by accident becomes the industry's biggest star "Orgazmo". A sleazy producer makes Trey an unwilling indentured servant. Joe's life is also plagued by his religious devotion to the mother church and his fiancée. Can Joe resolves these problems by the movie's end? Matt Stone co-stars as a set still photographer. Dian Bachar also co-stars as Orgazmo's sidekick and friend Choda Boy. Lloyd Kaufmann (founder of Troma Studios) and many stars of the "Adult Entertainment" make cameo appearances as well.
I enjoyed this movie. It was real funny and highly entertaining. Trey Parker did a great job of writing and directing this movie. The movie is even better if you're familiar with the porn business or know some of the stars. Too bad this movie was barely released and it seems to have been forgotten about on video. If you love South Park or enjoyed Cannibal: The Musical then I advise you to pick up a copy of this movie. You will not be disappointed.
