Storyline

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 Danii

Alternate Versions

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.

South Park Guts Make Live-Action Humor Work, Too
4 October 2010 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Joe Young is a Mormon, spreading the word of Jesus Christ in Los Angeles. He stumbles upon a house where they are shooting a pornographic movie, and despite his beliefs, finds the lure of compensation too good to turn down a role.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone had only just begun "South Park" when this film was released. The acting is cheesy, the lines are over-acted, but there's something just really funny about the movie. Like their even more amateur production, "Cannibal", they don't require a big budget to make things funny.

You might have to find Mormons or porn funny to really appreciate this film. I don't know. Of course, if you are opposed to porn or are Mormon, you probably should stay away from it, because you're likely to get offended. While tamer than you might expect, it is by no means a clean film.
