    Massively inventive and spiked with perversely wicked humor.

    A consistently light yet derisive tone, modest production values, and masterful comic timing allow writer-director-star Trey Parker to expose cultural hypocrisies with precision. His performance--in both the movie and the movie within the movie--is dramatic and poker-faced, seamless and hilarious.

    Best of all, it proves that there are still directors cut from the John Waters mold who aren't content just to push the envelope -- they rip right through it.
  4. 67
    Like everything else Parker puts his mind to -- is equally outlandish, part skewed morality play, part sophomoric slapstick, and wholly ridiculous.

    Like "There's Something About Mary," Orgazmo has a very sweet love story at its core, although it's more consistently entertaining, blending some outrageous moments with a surprising degree of restraint.
  6. 60
    The film too closely resembles what it's attempting to spoof--minus the obvious payoffs, of course.
  7. 60
    A ridiculous soft-core kung-fu porn film about a ridiculous hard-core one, Orgazmo is the kind of movie that improves according to the lateness of the hour.
  8. Cheerfully raunchy and undeserving of its prohibitive NC-17 rating, Orgazmo is a harmless sex farce.

    One of those things that probably seems hilarious when a couple of guys are sitting around hashing out the plot over a couple of beers.

    There’s something entirely ridiculous about rating a movie like this NC-17: Why should sniggering, infantile, adolescent humor be denied its natural core audience of snigger-ing, infantile adolescents?

    Dian Bachar, as Joe's pint-size sidekick, sounds the only note of sly wit; the unidentified stripper playing T-Rex delivers the only real shock value. The movie could have used a lot more of both.

    It's all pretty tasteless, but surprisingly chaste and not very funny.
  13. Faced an insoluble problem: how do you make a boundary-shattering gross-out farce about the porn business that isn't itself pornographic? Having the actors wear silly costumes embellished with sex toys just won't do the trick.
  14. Pretty limp, and works far better in theory than practice.

    The wackiness that unfolds is boring, ridiculous and, to most, offensive.
  16. 12
    The very soul of sophomorism. It is callow, gauche, obvious and awkward, and designed to appeal to those with similar qualities.

So yeah you'll get your fair share of laughs but it's not hard to notice that, while the movie may have the energy of a South Park episode, it lacks the intelligence of one. It's crude, rude, and vulgar and is hilarious because of that. So if you like to laugh then you should watch this, but don't expect a "smart" movie. Full Review »

    This movie is amazingly hilarious. The Mormon bashing alone almost makes it worth watching, but it is simply better than other movies whichThis movie is amazingly hilarious. The Mormon bashing alone almost makes it worth watching, but it is simply better than other movies which have tried to make comedies about porno - like Zack and Miri, and that Bucky Larson abortion.
    Matt and Trey really made a funny movie here, but you pretty much have to leave your sense of decency at the door.

    I loved Team America, and I like South Park. Baseketball is also decent. But this didn't make me laugh at all. Only watch this if you I loved Team America, and I like South Park. Baseketball is also decent. But this didn't make me laugh at all. Only watch this if you worship Trey and Matt and you have it in your head you'll love anything they do no matter what, instead of thinking for yourself. Sorry, personally this would just well, plain stupid in my opinion. Everything was too obvious. Full Review »
