Adah (Betsey Brown) has just gone sober - and it's hell for her, as she
finds other sober people boring, while those still drinking shun her.
She's also constantly horny of late but seems to be unable to click with
guys who want to have sex with her. Then though, at her therapist's
(Patrick Labella), whe meets Aaron (Jack Dunphy), the best friend of her
brother Adam (Peter Vack) she always feels inferior to, and Aaron has a
weird predilection for assholes. It's not long before the two have sex,
but also somehow contract herpes in the process, and since this will make
it hard to date someone else (what with their mouths covered in blisters)
they decide to continue having sex - and getting high on herpes medicine.
Eventually, all their herpes riddled anal sex makes Adah give birth ... to
Mephistopheles (Eileen Dietz), coming directly from hell, who's happy to
move in with them, though Adah soon thinks she just isn't evil enough.
Especially when Adah plans to kill her brother Adam, Mephistopheles isn't
a big help and ultimately the scheme fails. Then Mephistopheles returns to
hell, which breaks Adah and Aaron's hearts, and they take more and more
drugs as a consequence, which make them socially less and less acceptable
- until they grow assholes in their faces. But Adah's parents (Ron Brown,
Jane Brown) are not to just give up on her ...
is quite an insane little film: While it starts out like a Woody Allen
movie on speed (what with all the psychotherapy and stuff), the whole
thing's soon going downhills - and I mean this in a positive way. The
humour of this movie might be gross and blunt and of the anything-goes
variety, but it manages to continually surprise its audience, with scene
after scene that seem to take things too far only to be topped a few
minutes later. Sure, some of this is disgusting, and "good
taste" has certainly never been a big consideration of the filmmaker,
but at the same time the film is also well-directed and well-acted so that
the fun everybody on set must have had easily translates onto the screen.
an entertaining movie, actually, if you go in with an open mind. Oh, and a
couple of beers might help enjoy this as well.
