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
The "Beezel" segment runs in between the segment credits and the rest of the credits. See more »
The wraparound involving the segments being movie pitches was replaced in the UK Alternate Cut Version, released on the UK Blu-Ray, with an alternate wraparound about two teenagers and an 11-year-old trying to find the most banned movie in the world. See more »
Filthy, trashy, vulgar, stupid... I loved it... and was crying myself to tears till it hurt!...
all throughout the movie.... as most don't see the puns because they are too worried being shocked and awed by its grotesquely politically incorrect visuals and low brow gags. The jokes, as intended, has its dark filthy, vulgar humor that would facilitate weak stomachs to throw up with anxiety quiet quickly if you did not already choose to dismiss the film. I loved it plain and simple. And no, I don't know the filmmakers nor was I paid to say this.. I may as just well have a filthy mind just like them... kudos to the filmmaker for taking cinema where most won't. a real breath of fresh air unless you are smelling something rotting in the trash, yet trashy as it may be, for those who choose to go against the current, as this film does, leave you brain at the door and just take it all in... If you are looking for an art film, or a "Licoln" or a light sweet romantic comedy or any spiritually stimulating film like that to engage in some sort of intellectual conversation over coffee after seeing this, the reviews here should give you a clue. You may want to dismiss this film altogether... it was obviously not made for you. Otherwise, if you are into gutter humor... you will cry till you gut hurts or until your anxiety of feeling guilty for laughing at such vulgar silliness sets in.
