In the world of film, we have our film ratings that range from "G" to "R", covering pretty much all of your bases from impressionable children to adults who act like children. But then we have the extremely rare, often relatively pornographic "NC-17" rating that goes to a very small handful of movies. The most famous title that hold this rating is probably 'Showgirls', but the guys who did 'South Park' have one under their belt as well, with 'Orgazmo'.
Joe Young (Trey Parker) is a simple, young Mormon man who is going door to door, constantly attempting to share his love of Jesus to no avail. Anyone he approaches seems to just rudely slam the door in poor Joe's face.
Meanwhile, pornographic director Maxxx Orbison (Michael Dean Jacobs) is trying to direct a superhero themed adult film called, well, 'Orgazmo', also to no avail. The man who's playing his superhero figure ends up being a bit of a wimp, when he really needs to be able to fight and be a bad ass, even if it is just a pornographic movie.
When Joe rings Maxxx's doorbell, he gets the bouncer treatment. However, Joe manages to defend himself, using what he knows from studying martial arts. This is seen by Maxxx, and before Joe knows it, he's roped into the world of pornography, as Maxxx's leading man. This happens to hilariously conflict with Joe's interests, in that anything and everything pornographic goes against his Mormon beliefs. But with the need to save up for a wedding to his beloved Lisa (Robyn Lynne Raab), he finds himself with very little choice.
Soon enough, the whole thing goes from porn parody to superhero movie as Joe and his newfound actor friend Ben "Choda Boy" Chapleski (Dean Bachar) find themselves in hot water with a mob gang who is going after their Sushi shop owner friend G-Fresh (Masao Maki). Without so much more exposition, yes, they use the whole idea of Orgazmo and Choda Boy for their alter-egos (as if it wasn't obvious).
In the crazy world of Trey Parker's imagination, this is probably the one of the four titles that holds the weakest link among them. However, at the same time, one REALLY has to know what their getting into with this whole thing. This is nothing but a fun, throw-your-brain-out-the-window parody of a porn parody (if that makes any damn sense). Being that it's a farce on adult films, I'll also add that good acting isn't something one should be looking for here either. Treat is AS an adult film, and you'll get through it so much easier.
Usually Trey has something intelligent to say within the subtext of his creations (often along with Matt Stone). However, this just seemed like a goofy project he wanted to have a good time with. I suppose it could be seen as his take on how harsh the whole industry can be, with crooked directors and whatnot. However when real adult film actors and actresses are featured throughout the film (not the least of which is Ron Jeremy, himself) it's a bit hard to understand where it's all coming from.
Once again, if you have the hour and a half to waste in front of the idiot box with this one, I say go for it. Sometimes you just need to put things on hold and have fun with something, and this is most definitely a film that falls into that category. I suppose that's what makes it the weakest of his films for me. This one came out just as Trey and Matt were gaining very newfound 'South Park' fame, so it floated below the radar for a whole lot of people, and still kinda does. So it's that neat little project he's got under his belt that's worth checking out at least once, if you're a fan of his work. Unlike the other three main titles, however, this one gets a bit stale upon several re-watches. Still though, it's worth checking out if you haven't yet. Just be 17 years or older if you're gonna view it. Or at the very least, mature enough to handle pornographic themes. Actually, in all honesty, this probably could have just been a solid R, but there we have it.
