Ineffectual, 'has-been' film-maker (Dennis Quaid) swindles his way into an interview with a film executive (Greg Kinnear) in order to pitch an outrageous and controversial comedy manuscript. After pitching the first of his thirteen offbeat fables, the dejected artist forces the rest of his disjointed allegory on the executive at gunpoint. He tells stories of a woman on a blind date with a man who has testicles growing from his neck, in another a smitten woman offers her neck to her boyfriend to 'poop' on -as a sign of commitment and love. In yet another two parents take home-schooling to a whole new level of indecency, striving to give their isolated teenage son all the 'regular' torment and humiliation of puberty by bullying, peer-pressuring and even seducing him themselves. An off-beat, elephant-in-the-room type film.Written by
James Gunn found it so amusing that the producers would object to the title of the song he wrote for "Beezel," even though it remains in the lyrics, that he wrote a series of sardonic emails to the music department, claiming the song being titled "That Gay Fucking Cat" was essential to the piece's artistic integrity, and offering a paltry sum of cash in exchange for keeping it. When the music department was not amused, Gunn and Composer Tyler Bates then submitted a list of highly offensive, and utterly nonsensical, replacement titles. The song was finally given the title "The Cat Song." See more »

Look, at the very least we need to put a warning sticker on the box.
MP3 players don't have a warning not to have sex with it, right? A bag of potato chips doesn't have a warning, "Please don't fuck these potato chips"!

Easy watching, a good laugh if it's your sort of thing. Generally misunderstood
Personally find it entertaining. Easy to watch. If you take out the crappy base storyline with the 3 twits it's OK. I don't think people realise the point of this film. It's just a sketch movie. It's not meant to be a masterpiece. Millions of people watch sketches like this on YouTube everyday but may a movie well that's just ridiculous, calm down. It's way better than south park which is just swearing angry kids and sex.
