★★★½ review by laird on Letterboxd
Tim & Eric's Napoleon Dynamite (both better and worse than that sounds for all of the reasons one would expect). Will alienate 98% of the human population with its forceful weirdness, but I'm in that 2% that appreciates that this exists as 100% unfiltered irritainment. I hope that 2% finds this, they're gonna love it!
Warning: The odd cadence of the dialogue in this movie has a narcotic effect.

This movie was everything I wanted it to be. My stomach hurt from laughing so hard. So crude, offensive, and perfect.
★★★★ review by Tom Morton on Letterboxd
The first hour of this is so wildly, ridiculously funny and disgusting that I found myself starting to think of the best way to tell people that it was my new favourite film of the year without outing myself as a ridiculous idiot. For some reason I kind of expected this to have a Troma-esque vibe but it doesn't at all - if anything the comedic stylings are more like a cross between Napoleon Dynamite and Trailer Park Boys, but with 8,000% more gratuitous nudity than either, or than pretty much anything else, really. Throw in the fact that one of the main characters looks like something from one of Vic Reeves' dreams and you have... The Greasy Strangler.
Somewhere in the last act, this crosses a line and gets a little bit TOO cruel towards one of its characters for my liking, but it's such a bizarre and entertaining experience that I can't hold too much against it - in fact, it's probably for the best that this did eventually offend me a little, as otherwise I'd be fearing for my own soul.

Espíritu de tebeo undergroud capturado en imágenes cinematográficas. Demencialmente divertida... me siento sucio y feliz a la vez.
★★★★ review by Grimbo on Letterboxd
It's a hard film to rate of rate. On one hand it's like a grossout Napoleon Dynamite on the other it's an annoying experience.
Every time I think of something that annoyed me, I also think of something that made me chuckle.
It will probably become loved on repeat viewings if you can be bothered to do so!
