Storyline

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 kwedgwood@hotmail.com

People need to chill the F out
19 November 2019 | by mvanekadhiSee all my reviews

Ok I've never written a review on here before and it's painfully obvious as to how late I am. However, what did you people expect from this movie? The entire point of it is that it was different segments with not much of a plot just trying to get some laughs out of people and it was hilarious. What did you people want an Oscar worthy comedy? No it was never meant to be that. Just to make you laugh and it was funny. If you did not find it funny then I'm guessing you are somebody who still thinks SNL is funny. It's gross out humor. Cmon people the home schooled segment was great. My god relax and take this movie for what it is. Again just different segments that really don't have a point beyond creating humor. That's exactly what it did.
