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 »
Obviously this movie isn't for a 40 year old. Obviously it isn't for a child. And obviously it isn't for someone who thinks they are too good for silly humor. There are some stupid shows on TV that make me wanna shoot myself and I can say that this movie was way better then that. Personally, I thought this movie was hilarious. And during the movie the whole audience was cracking up, that is not something you see, or hear, very often. I think Will Farrels kind of humor is WAY worst and less funny then this. I love it because it looks like such a fun gig for famous actors, its not all serious. If the actors are having fun with it then the audience should too. If you have a sense of humor and are not a grandma go see it!
