What's it about
A bunch of selfish and hateful people connect in bizarre ways. They all come together in unfunny and uninteresting ways. Although, there are a bunch of naked chicks, so I guess it ain’t a total loss.
Is it good movie?
So this is my second time enjoying an exploitation flick brought to us by Bill Zebub. The first time was Ravage The Scream Queen, which I really hated. And sadly, the second time isn’t a charm. With Dirtbags: Evil Never Felt So Good, I felt little more than sheer and utter boredom. I will say that I appreciated what he was trying to do this time. While it still included some exploitive elements, I give the man props for trying to make an Ed Wood-esque comedy… I hope. But even with that, it is so horribly amateurish that it never really made me smile. And just like the previous effort, I didn’t find it offensive, just boring. I mean horribly boring. Not one single character is interesting, well, aside from seeing Mr. Peter Steele from the band Type O Negative. I sort of like that band.
As far as the “story” goes, we are first introduced to some alien chick who tells us that all humans are selfish. Well, that’s about it. All humans are selfish and they only do nice things to further themselves. And thus, they somehow string together a bunch of moments that attempt to be funny. One sequence involves a dude who has to suck another guy’s cock, and then we also have the heavy fella that keeps jacking off to some hottie on the television. Sure, a bunch of other attempts are made, and I didn’t find a single damn one smile inducing. Not a one. I really do love crude humor. Some of my favorite movies are these ridiculous flicks that are so offensive that they are hilarious. But this isn’t. In fact, it is pretty damn painful to sit through.
I think I get what Bill Zebub is trying to do. He is certainly going for the raw and offbeat humor. But his actors are not at all good. Aside from a couple of the hotties, there are some terrible readings here. It sometimes felt as though they were reading off cue cards… and not well. But the script is nothing to get excited about either. Maybe there could’ve been something funny if there was something good going on. Certainly a couple of the sequences might’ve, had they been executed well, but then again, maybe not. The DVD cover claims that this was “Banned in 69 Countries”… I don’t know if I blame them. But if you have to say something positive, I dug the soundtrack that includes a bunch of metal tracks.
Video / Audio
Video: This is a cheap film and this particular transfer looks cheap. Not terrible, but certainly not great.
Audio: Same goes for the audio.
If you want extras, look somewhere else. This DVD features other Bill Zebub trailers including “Metalheads: The God, the Bad and the Evil”, “Metal Retardation”, “Assmonster”, “Bad Acid”, “Ravage the Scream Queen”, “Breaking Her Will”, “Into Thy Hands”, “Black Metal: The Norwegian Legacy???” and “The Most Offensive Comedy Ever Made”.
If you want to know who is on the soundtrack, you can check out The Music Credits. Enjoy.
I don’t like this film at all. It’s cheap and as much as it tries to be offensive, it merely manages to be boring. It seems like Mr. Bezub has some cool music taste, and I respect the fact that he is making his own films the way he wants. Good on him. But sadly this sure wasn’t good on me.
