And I thought this was a Kevin Smith movie...
But it's not! I discovered here that he didn't write it and he didn't direct it, so that could explain why I thought it wasn't "awesome" or "compelling," but "horrifying" and "stupid."

It's obvious that the writer and director was/is friends with Smith, as the dialogue was clearly patterned after Smith's scripts. However, all the snappy exchanges failed to pop and I found myself wondering why I should care about this stupid clown with a castrating mother and no future. I didn't find Flappy/Vulgar sympathetic in the least and I found the other characters even less so. Even the rape scene, which should have been tension-filled and frightening, played like a bad rip-off of "Pulp Fiction."

The only selling points this movie really has are the fact that it's affiliated with ViewAskew, it's got an "In Defense of Dogma" special feature which interviews the cast and crew of "Dogma," and that Vulgar the Clown is actually the cartoon clown from the opening credits of "Clerks." But I strongly suggest you don't bother seeing the live action version - it's really not pretty at all.
