The Underground Comedy Movie Movie Review
And we are all the worse for it. With scenes of shitting supermodels, a blubbering "virgin hunter," and even a Godfather spoof starring Joey Buttafuoco, terming this as "comedy" is a real stretch. At its lowest point, Underground is wholly unwatchable, most notably during a vignette in which an Arnold Schwarzenegger type has sex with a faux corpse.
The sole spot in this film which could be conceivably be seen as funny is a homeless woman beauty pageant, emceed by Guns 'N' Roses' Slash. More pathetic than hilarious, I at least appreciate the effort it took to get bag ladies in swimsuits.
Filmmaker Vince Offer claims his movie is "guaranteed to offend," and he's right. Disgust is a better term, but we needn't split hairs: If you're looking for the ultimate movie to clear your house of partygoers who don't know when to leave, look no further than this DVD.
