    it was crude, offensive, and vulgar..........i loved it.

    Darn that's what I was going to say. I thought it was hilarious and one other person I know loved it, but everyone else I recommended it to hated it. Go figure.

    yeah, you have to have a sick sense of humor to appreciate it.

    Interestingly enough, only about 4 people on this entire thread have said they did not like it ! I'd say it's running about 85 % for, maybe 15 % against. Maybe we were all so tight and restricted with " witness humor " we have come of age and loosened up a bit without those smothering restrictions, ya think ? Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    My wife and I found it to be very offensive. We got our money back, told the manager we thought the movie encouraged anti-semitism and walked out.

    but he started off on HBO doing Da Ali G Show


    i thought it was funny for the most part...but had to resort to excess rather than clever comedy as time went by.

    i would love for him to do a movie with his fashion character - bruno

    I liked the movie because it isn't too often you see the "wise-fool" character out in the open. The movie wasn't anti-semetic. USA is sitting on a pool of anti-semeticism and racism. The "fool" gets the last laugh because he really is a jew.

    It's called parody.

    The face-slapping kind.

    Having said that, I will admit to being traumatized by the naked wrestling. or, I'm not sure which.

    Infantile, vulgar and narcissistic. The kind of movie Beavis and Butthead would love.
