Orgazmo


Dir: Trey Parker
Star: Trey Parker, Dian Bachar, Robyn Lynne Raab, Michael Dean Jacobs

After the failure of this and BASEketball, it seems the genius of Parker and co-conspirator Matt Stone may be limited to the animated kindergarteners of South Park. The central concept here - a Mormon goes into the porn industry, - is not without potential, but there is a shortage of ideas beyond that. While it takes some mildly amusing shots at the superhero, martial arts and porn genres (the last being where many of the supporting cast come from, led by the surprisingly decent Ron Jeremy), it feels like a funny sketch stretched to unfunny movie length. They'd have been better off sticking to one genre for parody, or even going the whole hog and including the hard-core footage at which it merely hints coyly. Loose, limp and self-indulgent, it has to rank as strike two, and they'd be well advised to sell as much South Park merchandising as they can. Because, on this showing, obscurity beckons once that bubble bursts.
