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
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.
