review by
Mike Haberfelner

Maureen Whiteman (Leslie Racine Vazquez) is the conservatives' top candidate for a mayor's post on Rhode Island - not so much because she's all that talented a politician but because she upholds conservative values, to the extreme really ... oh and because her campaign is backed by big money from Russia. Maureen's son Dick (Graham Stokes) is really a model politician's son, too, he doesn't talk back, supports his mother's ideas and ambitions without questioning them, and keeps out of all scandals. Plus, he's engaged to a wholesome woman, Pat (Sarah Reed), so some say he's really presidential material. But there's something odd with Dick: Even though he's been with Pat for over 5 years, he's never ever tried to get intimate with her - quite the contrary, whenever she is taking the initiative, he knows no better than to hide under a blanket. His mother of course is keen on him having offspring as it would look good for her campaign, so she sends him to Hyde Hippocampus' (Terry Shea) sexual orientation clinic - pronounce "sexual conversion camp" here. However, Hyde Hippocampus has a brother, Jekyll (Terry Shea again), who runs a sexual acceptance camp, and he has long figured Dick is probably gay, so he kidnaps the boy and tries for him to come to terms with his sexuality - but really, Dick, having been indoctrinated by his mother for years, doesn't see himself gay and resents Jekyll's treatment, even if he feels more and more drawn to his male patients and personnel. But when Hyde kidnaps him back to his sexual orientation clinic, Dick feels even more out of place, and from here on it's really a tug-o'-war for the boy and even more so for his sexuality, something that gets even worse then his mother and fiancée - interestingly enough on opposite sides - join the fight ...


Now you might have already guessed it from above synopsis (or probably the title even), Disorienting Dick is not the most subtle of movies - actually I'd go so far as to say it tries to drive its message home with a sledgehammer. And while this is normally not my thing, it really works here, and not even so much because the film clearly has its heart in the right place, but because its message is really the foundation of its humour as such. And in regards to comedy, it might often come across as blunt, and despite its well intentions the film is absolutely not politically correct, but also hilarious in its lack of respect and its anything-goes mentality. That all said, if you prefer to stick to your conservative values over just enjoying a raunchy comedy, then this is not a movie for you, but if you only remotely support LGBTQ-rights and are into respect-free humour, you'll probably find this one hilarious.
