Storyline

In this dark comedy inspired by the medieval fantasy genre, an immortal idiot is chosen to champion the bored Gods of Mount Olympus. Poor Throg, ever the optimist, stumbles through history, leaving a trail of comic carnage in his wake. Along the way, he meets talking pigs, Arthurian knights, evil clowns, and the sadistic green man of the forest. Are his stories the ravings of a deranged lunatic, or will he truly achieve his "density?" Only time will tell. Written by Anonymous

Really funny
20 May 2006 | by malkiv-1See all my reviews

I actually found this low budget flick to be amazing. It is quirky and funny as hell. For a movie made by amateurs and for $35k, it is really cool. The tango scene is very funny, as is the hit-by-cars scene, and some of the comic timing is brilliant. The editing could have been less choppy, but it is still a riot. Throg's dance scene in his skivvies is also worth the price of admission (groundhog dance from Caddyshack maybe?). It reminds me of wiley coyote meets 3-stooges meets monty python meets acid trip. The special effects are also amazing for such a tiny-budget indie. It's very unique among the indie movies, and it is frankly refreshing not to see either horror or some morose cornfield indie.
