    The scenes from this movie are like a comic book or a cartoon, they can be extremely over-the-top, but I think this is how you're supposed to enjoy this film. Don't take it seriously, it surely doesn't take itself seriously.
    It's also a bit of a parody of the father/son relationship and makes a mockery of bf/gf relationships in films that frequently occurs in 'Hollywood' films. It's taken to an extreme level which can mostly be enjoyed once you tell yourself that the movie itself is like a cartoon or comic, which plays-in nicely with Tom's character and his drawing & doodling skills. We get to see the growth of Gord, from his childish ways as an adult, to becoming a successful man that makes his daddy proud.
    It's basically a crazy cartoon made with real actors. That's how I see it.
    I hired this when it first came out, I lasted until the baby spinning scene and I switched it off, it's fair to say that I disliked it. I was stoned and none of it made any sense. Firstly, let me just say that I never turn off movies, I always grind them out, except for this film. However, 3 months later I gave it another shot and watched it again and I was NOT stoned this time. It finally made sense to me and I feel that I understood it - from then on I have absolutely loved this film!
    I recommend watching it with Tom's Director's commentary as well.
    The absurdity is what hooks me in, as we really only get to see this craziness with animation.
    Maybe I'm completely wrong about it, but for me - it works.

    Gunn wasn't fired for making jokes. His tweets bore no resemblance to jokes. Dude just straight up said "i love my friends in NAMBLA." Interpreting that as a joke is itself a joke.

    There's not enough codeine in your shelf-mix cold remedies (do they even sell codene in those anymore? I'd swear I haven't seen that since the 1990s) to fuck with your head. The stuff in NyQuill that can throw you for a loop if you take too much is the cough suppressant Dextromethorphan. In high dosages it's typically compared most closely to PCP, though without the reputation for causing violent outbursts. Side effects may include walking down the street naked and blacking out for three days.

    The RLM review was a revelation. I found the movie obnoxious yet not as bad as I feared when I saw it years ago, and I liked Rip Torn's bits a lot. But when RLM broke down the bus stop scene, the birth scene, the sales pitch scene, and the "I blew the budget on a bag of jewels and a helicopter transport to Pakistan" bit, everything clicked into place. Sure, the message is just "fuck you, Hollywood," but it's done in a remarkably clever way. And obnoxious. Very very obnoxious, which turns out to be the key misdirection. Making something subtle by making it so ear-bleedingly overt that you miss it. It's one hell of a trick.

I spoke loudly..."You are a terrible person and they should strip you of your Oscar...which you only got for also being praised for Ex machina!!" Sorry,not sorry...And no Japan four? Or when stocks are high etc...? I say Tokyo,You hear HELSINKI....?? YOURE FUCKING FIRED BOB!!

    And did i just go insane or was Soap on a roap not included? Neither to mock or laugh at? Well...this is how you manipulate a scenario when you wanna feel like a superior prick ,guys. Well done. this film is beyond stupid,alot is just shit....but so stupid and embraces its own retardation,several parts just makes you lose your shit...and your associate has NO sense of humour,takes himself way too seriously.

    Seeing your reactions to this film just confirms it is secretly genius. What other thing can induce such reactions? I bet this is also the reason my brother and his friends used to have a time when they'd gather to watch this movie every day, sometimes multiple times. They knew it was awful, but it's just something that worked for them. Being so weirded out in a group of friends and laughing and/or puking together is apparently some great experience.

    Doug, you cannot laugh THIS MUCH at a comedy movie and still say you don't like it. You're allowing the initial critical reception the film got in 2001 to effect your opinion too much. The absurdity, the poor structure and ridiculous set ups are all intentional. It's a fucking hilarious movie. Just admit it. I can clearly see you're enjoying it from this video.

  • poopynuggeteer extraordinaire

    I like Mike's theory from RLM. It's quite possible that Tom Green was self aware and making a mockery of many traditional story archs in his movie. Mikes theory starts with the fact that Toms character actually succeeds at pitching his cartoon idea, but since it lacks a story he needs a million dollars to produce something amazing. This is Tom Greens real situation with the movie, he's shocked someone gave him a million dollars and just like in the movie he turns the money into shit. Sabotaging everything purposefully. It's so elaborate and shitty, it's like how people still debate if Andy Kaufman is dead or alive because he always talked about faking his death as a prank. The fact people talk about this movie to this day is probably what Tom wanted.
