Bizarre!!!
18 May 2004 | by swimtheswimSee all my reviews

This movie is sure to offend just about everybody. It makes fun of gay people, stupid people, catholics, colored people, white people, african tribes, the united states of America, deformed children, the handicapped, etc. It also pushes the envelope as far as bad taste with a character known as Jesus Peter Panne. It kind of reminds me of the first time I saw a black and white, b-rated, horror film. Oddly fascinating, yet repulsive. This is just something that has to be believed to be seen. It was non-stop laughter for me, though. Perhaps the most original movie since the 70's, however it doesn't quite exploit any single thing, it exploits everything. If you feel like checking this movie out, videoscreams should still have it available. Be warned, this movie is unlike anything you have ever seen, and I mean anything. Highly recommended!!!
