3/14/09: Orgazmo (1996)

I suppose it was inevitable, albeit highly unlikely: two "1" grades in a row.

I could be forgiven for having high hopes for this raunchy "comedy," given how much I loved Trey Parker's later movie, the hysterical Team America: World Police. And at its peak, his TV series South Park was savagely biting and funny—everything this embarrassing excuse for a movie isn't. Parker wrote, directed and starred in this porno spoof, playing a Mormon who is reluctantly (to say the least) dragged into the production of an adult film. Hilarity would have been a good thing to have ensued at that juncture—too bad it never happens. There are one or two raunchy lines that elicited a smirk from me, but that's about it. The funniest thing in the film is actually Parker's outrageously over-the-top opening-credits song "Now You're a Man," which suggests "Eye of the Tiger" as sung by Toby Keith while overdosing on testosterone. (The song could only have been written by the genius who came up with "America, Fuck Yeah.")

I would complain that I want those two hours of my life back, but the movie only lasted 1 hour 34 mins. It just seemed like two hours. Rating: 1/5.
