This was, well really something and I don't think I mean that in a good way. If you are used to Kevin Smith movies, and looking for something like it (because of the actors involved) you will probably be rather disappointed. I don't really like Kevin Smith so that didn't effect my enjoyment of this film, the film did that instead. The tale is about a man who is down on his luck. He's broke, lives in a crappy appartment and his Mother is driving him crazy. He decides to dress as a clown, but on his first outing he is gang raped and drugged and beaten. Later he ends up working another party and enters a hostage situation which hails him a hero and he gets his own show. It's really bizarre and very dark and depressing in many ways. Not a film that makes one think but rather one that makes one wish they were dead.

Availability:  On DVD
