Saw this on Saturday night (early hours of Sunday morning). I found it surreal, disgusting, offensive and just plain wrong! Absolutely superb.

Is this the perfect Counterglow movie?

Apparently in was voted worst film of all time a some movie magazine.

I can see why, it is peurile and extremely wrong.

That made me search for bad reviews though, to recommend it but they mostly spoil some of the surprises.

Here's one that doesn't spoil:

Brooklyn NY

Date: 23 April 2002
Summary: Don't stop, Tom! DON'T! STOP!
Wow, this is really off the charts, and if that approach had worked I'd be celebrating. But apparently everything has been thrown on the screen and a pattern was supposed to have emerged, or maybe even a movie..No reason to list all the cinematic low-points, but trust me, they are there.

But who can be glad about this mess of a movie..its virtually unwatchable, almost always unfunny and a disgrace to the human race. Its intended audience - 11 year old boys - are unable to see it due to its rating, so that makes it all the more puzzling.

Maybe someone owed Tom Green a favor. Maybe someone black-mailed Rip Torn and Julie Hagerty and Eddie Kaye Thomas. Maybe someone should explain the mental state of the executives that okayed this as it is.

I did laugh once or twice but it was accidental, a mistake. 1/10 and that is because I am feeling very generous. "

The only reason I like this movie is that it put a dead stop on Tom Green's career.

But it has a scene where a man wanks off an elephant into his own fathers face. What's not to like?

Agreed. It was quite possibly the funniest film I've ever seen.

I have vague memories of him licking his best friends compound fracture after the falls on the skate ramp!

doesn't he pretend to shag a dead moose?
I really hate Tom Green but there are some acts of genius in his stuff. I think he should drop the comedian tag and call himself a performance artist- he'd be considered far more highbrow then and the Guardian would say it was OK to like him.

Watched this last night and I have to say that I havent laughed so hard at a film for years - incredibly funny! The scene where he delivers the baby is amazing!
