1 November 1999 | Chiron1987
Lowbrow comedy brings a lot of laughs...
Orgazmo appeared and disappeared faster in 1997 than Showgirls. Part of the blame is the nefarious NC-17 rating which both did not deserve. However, Orgazmo is the better of both films simply because it tries much harder than Showgirls did to deliver a product based purely on shock value.

Orgazmo is the story of a young Mormon languishing in the cesspool that is Los Angeles try to convert the jaded populace into members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He fails at that, but succeeds at being the luckless star of low-budget adult film, Orgazmo, featuring a super-hero who wears a weapon that induces instantaneous orgasms in his foes and a stalwart sidekick, Choda-Boy, who wears a serendipitous dildo atop his head.

The performances were rather good, especially director/writer Trey Parker as our heroic protagonist, and Dian Bachar, as the scientist turned porn star. While the film was made on a shoestring budget, and boy, does it show, it is earnest, funny, and well-paced. Parker took a mere $600,000 and really crafted a terrific movie that no one will likely ever see.

Recommended.

Trivia

In India, the word "Choda" is colloquial for Fuck in many languages including Hindi. The side-kick is called 'Choda Boy', which would be "Fucker" in Hindi, and completely in line with the Orgazmo theme.


Quotes

G-Fresh: Aw, dat hurt so much!


Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, the wall falls away when they first break through. In a subsequent shot, the wall is intact.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits the following disclaimer is included: Any references to any religious organizations is purely coincidental And no actual mormons were used or abused in the filming of this picture.


Alternate Versions

The Region 1 DVD release of the film is offered in two versions: the U. S. theatrical cut (rated NC-17) or the "unrated" cut, which was previously available in some markets outside the United States. The two are only minimally different, and the unrated cut contains no extra scenes. The changes in the unrated cut include:

  • Many sound effects have been altered or removed entirely.
  • A number of the pop songs used in the soundtrack have been replaced with a score, and several musical cues have been altered.
  • Several lines sound as if they were taken from different takes of the scene or overdubs and have different inflections. This is most noticeable with Maxxx Orbison's (Michael Dean Jacobs) lines.
  • The opening scenes of Joe's (Trey Parker) missionary work and Candi (Chasey Lain) and Rodgers (Andrew Kemler) filming a scene are cross-cut instead of presenting the scenes in their entirety.
  • There is more use of profanity, most notably the "f" word and its variations.
  • A few lines of dialog are different, such as in the scene between Joe and the DVDA woman (Cathy Fitzpatrick), but the core meaning/plot of the scenes is unchanged.
