Ok…here’s the pitch! A movie that’s just jokes! Dirty jokes! Story? Maybe sure sure, but its all about jokes! We all love dirty jokes right? We have some actors act them out…one after the other…and that’s it…the whole movie is jokes!
That is the theory behind this film, and almost verbatim the opening scene. A sleazy looking producer wants to help resurrect a Hollywood production company with his idea for a movie that is nothing but a series of dirty jokes, played out one after the other. And this is exactly what we the audience received. Chapterised with portions showing the filmmakers trying to create and ultimately punished for making this film, we see a gaggle of actors, and a LOT of topless women, act out dirty jokes. The film compares itself to The Aristocrats in the sense that it is just jokes for the duration of the film, but the main difference is The Aristocrats is a documentary whereas Dirty Movie is almost meta-cinema in how self-aware it is in its presentation.
Said presentation, featuring the fictional filmmakers, holds the sequences together decently and even has some interesting things to say about what is correct to joke about or not, but in order to enjoy this film you have to be in it for the jokes. If you enjoy jokes about rednecks having sex with animals, pedophile priests, corrupt doctors, and lots of superfluous T&A, then this film with be worth more than the price of admission.
Widescreen 1.78:1. The picture is of a very fine quality. Very clear colours.
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround and a Stereo option that contains a laugh track are available. The laugh track option is an interesting feature, though I personally don’t care for canned laughs. All in all, a good sound presentation I’d say.
Subtitles available in English and Spanish
“More Funny”: Deleted joke scenes that didn’t make it into the film. Watching this has just as much structure and flow as the film…so more enjoyment to be had by fans.
Commentary by Writer/Producer Alan Donnes and Director Jerry Daigle: A very positive and enjoyable commentary track. They point out mistakes they made, praise the many actors they used and explain how jokes they could not have acted out they had the fake producer and fake director tell each other.
Laugh Track: Already mentioned in AUDIO.
Like I said before, its all about the jokes (and some naked girls). Like a Maxim magazine come to life, this film will certainly appeal to a select crowd. Hard to criticize really because it simply is what it is, take it or leave it.
