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! —Danii
funny, silly, irreverent romp from the makers of South Park
I've seen Orgazmo many times and I always have to chuckle over it. The beginning of the film is fantastic: filled with zingers, and the furious fists of a Mormon martial artist. The concept is fresh: a young Mormon acolyte on a mission tries to make money for a special wedding ceremony by appearing in pornographic films. Director/Writer/Star Trey Parker is great as the innocent Joe, and his South Park partner-in-crime Matt Stone as photographer Dave steals every scene that he's in. The film stalls a bit just before the climactic final scenes but overall, it is very funny and really not as offensive as detractors of Parker and Stone would have you believe. Well worth it for fans of their series, and for people who like their comedy irreverent.
