The credits include several outtakes and bloopers, and near the end of the credits is a bonus scene of a drunk Conrad crying to a female bartender, who then offers to take him home. The bartender puts Conrad in bed and offers to perform oral sex on him, but when she gets his pants off and sees his injury she starts crying. The scene ends with Conrad suddenly sitting up and vomiting at the camera. See more »

No. This is NOT a black comedy/spoof/drama. This is very nearly nothing at all.
Chutzpah has a new--perhaps permanent--definition: NOWHERE MAN, an execrable would-be drama, would-be comedy, would-be satire, would-be goof/spoof, would-be Troma-type gore fest (Lloyd Kaufman even has a small role). So many would-be's and not a single be.
The height of the chutzpah is using outtakes during the end credits to what has already been one long outtake in itself. Without these dumber-than-usual add-ons, the film would have rolled in at just 70 minutes. With them, it stretches out the insult to 80. Jumping off (and crashing) from the John and Lorena Bobitt tale, the movie plays it mostly straight (very badly) but occasionally veers into leaden satire, which is even worse. The two leads could very possibly be decent actors. But not here. Technically the movie sucks, too, which leaves it without a single redeeming feature.
Now that I rethink for a moment, I must admit my earlier mistake: The tip-top height of chutzpah is that fact that this film actually received a theatrical release. Imagine the poor schnooks who paid movie-theatre prices!
