Unfortunate because, frankly, they are even more brilliant than South Park itself, specifically Orgazmo. Created, written, directed, edited by and starring South Park co-creator Trey Parker, the NC-17-rated gem from 1998 can still be found on VHS, as well as DVD if you order it as a black-market import (as I did...it took about a month to get it from Hong Kong). Ebay and other auction sites have the DVD version all the time. If this film escaped you, allow me to guide through a short tour of one of the funniest films ever made.If you are a South Park fan, the humor won't surprise you at all. However, as much as I love Trey Parker and Matt Stone's humor, I still am dumbfounded at how they come up with some of this stuff. For instance, the entire premise of Orgazmo surrounds a clean-cut Mormon (yes, Mormon) doing mission work (yes, mission work) in Los Angeles as part of his studies at BYU in Salt Lake City. That setup is the first five minutes of the film. You almost have to watch it two or three times to appreciate the sheer nutiness involved in coming up with such a beginning. You can hardly picture the session that took place where discussions like, "Ok...so there's this guy, right? He is a real religious guy...he's a, a, a...a Mormon! Yeah, that's it...and he is in Los Angeles doing mission work and he gets talked into doing porno." THAT is brilliant!!That is exactly what happens though. Joe Young, a.k.a. Orgazmo, played by Trey Parker, desperately wants to marry his virginal bride in the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, but it costs a lot of money. While defending himself from some thugs who try to pummel him during his mission work, the director of a pornographic movie sees his action skills and talks him into being the star of his action-porno Orgazmo. Wrestling with this moral dilemma, Joe chooses the money because he knows it will go to a good cause, marriage to his love in the Temple.Throughout the film-making process, you meet all kinds of insane characters including the sidekick Choda Boy, who actually holds two PhD's in Physics and Engineering from M.I.T. Although highly educated, Ben (Choda Boy) does porno due to his high sex drive. However, he utilizes his intelligence by inventing things and selling them on the side. Of course! Duh!! The hilarity that ensues is nonstop. Matt Stone even makes an occasional appearance as a technical assistant on the set of Orgazmo who can't stop saying the most inappropriate and inexplicable things. Toss on top of that the fact that Orgazmo becomes a box office smash and Joe is strong-armed into doing a sequel. At the heart of Orgazmo is its originality. Granted, the theme is very sexual in nature, but in a very comedic sense. You never see anything hardcore. It is simply discussed, very ridiculously acted out and, at times, just implied. I have no idea why it got an NC-17 rating, which killed it at the REAL box office. However, Orgazmo is such a funny movie. Rarely do geniuses like this get the appreciation they deserve. If you get a chance, buy it, rent it, at least see it.

I found this movie on Netflix and it didn't seem like much because it was a not too well known movie. I started watching it and by the end I was shocked. the way everything just comes together at the end is hands down AMAZING! it's like, you spend the whole movie trying to figure out what is what but then at the end it's just something you would never suspect. Some of the quotes from this movie are absolutely brilliant for the characters. this is a MUST watch, especially on a friends night.

Jesse O (ag) wrote: Let's be honest, professional wrestlers who have tried to be actors haven't had the best of track records when it comes to actually being talented at it or appearing in quality movies. Just look at any of Hulk Hogan's films for proof of this. Steve Austin, John Cena, Randy Orton, among many other wrestles have tried their hand at acting and none of them have really been great or even that successful at it. I will admit that John Cena, in smaller roles has done surprisingly well, he's just not leading man material. There's one, very obvious, exception to the rule that wrestlers make shitty actors or appear in shitty movies. And that one man is The Rock. Rock is the the exception to the rule. He's both talented and he has appeared in quality movies. Almost all of them being in the action genre, but still. The Rock is a special kind of talent. He's super charismatic, likable and he has an imposing presence. Which brings us to Roddy Piper, may he rest in peace, whose biggest success as a wrestler came in the mid-to-late 80s thanks to the WWF, as it was known at the time. Piper "retired" in 1987 to embark in a career in films. That same year his first movie in a legit lead role came out, Hell Comes to Frogtown, a movie I haven't seen but I'm intrigued by. The year after that, however, came the movie that he would be most associated with and that is the movie I am reviewing right now. We'll get into how I felt about the movie later, but if you were curious as to how Roddy Piper fared as an actor, particularly when compared to the very low standard of wrestler-turned-actor. He's actually surprisingly good in this movie. He's obviously not a thespian nor does he attempt to be. And with a film like this, where it's so reliant of B-movie thrills, he's actually pretty much perfect in this type of cult movie. Piper, who was known as one of the best on the mic in the wrestling world in the 80s, does bring some of that energy from his wrestling work to the movie. Which is surprising because back in the 80s, wrestling interviews were unscripted. To go from an environment where he's given the freedom to say what he wants to one where he, in some cases, has to rigidly stick to the script and to do a good job at it was certainly impressive on his part. Again I point you to Hulk Hogan's terrible acting as proof of this. It also helps that the script is surprisingly strong, in spite of all the sci-fi silliness that's going on. And, honestly, I thought this movie, by and large, was really fucking good. I will admit, however, that the third act of the film lost me. Not that I found it hard to follow what was going on, it's almost impossible to be confused in a film such as this. The plot is fairly basic. Piper's character finds this sunglasses that lets him see the world as it really is. Subliminal messages are in everything, from billboards, to magazines, to television, in order to keep the masses complacent and submissive. This is a conspiracy theorist's wet dream. Not to mention the fact that the elite of the elite in this world are creatures from another planet who are slowly taking over earth before moving on to the next planet. Again, this is a conspiracy theorist's favorite movie. If you've ever heard of the lizard people, then the creatures in this movie are similar to that. Anyway, the movie deals with John, Piper's character, journey to show everybody the reality of the world that they're living in and how they're being manipulated by the powers that be. Simple story. He struggles to find people who believe him and after an epic fight, he is able to ensure the help of Keith David's character as they form a two-man army to go and kill as many of these creatures as they can. But let's go back to this fight scene between Keith and Piper. It might literally be the most absurd fight in the history of time. That's a bit of hyperbole, of course, but it's so fucking silly. And it is absolutely tremendous. John and Frank's disagreement boils down to, essentially, Frank refusing to put on the glasses at John's behest. And then they have one of the best and most entertaining fight scenes I have ever seen. And I don't mean best as in they even come close to matching the level of complexity and intensity, not to mention super editing, of the films like the Raid or Fury Road. It's just a good ol' fight between two badass men. And it's not a quick fistfight, it goes for a fairly long time, like maybe 5+ minutes. It's a fight that goes through several steps of 'finality' before either John or Frank throws another punch or another kick, and then they go back at it again. They reach a point where you think it's over and, once again, someone throws a punch and the fight starts up again. It's the fucking best and the highlight of the film. There's plenty of quotable lines here as well. Like I said, the third act sort of lost some of the luster, but it's still a really damn good and a movie from a bygone era that, surprisingly, held up reasonably well as some of the themes can be applied in modern times, even almost 30 years after its release. I can't complain much, I had a blast watching this movie and I would easily recommend it if you haven't seen it yet.
