My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Maybe.

Well this one had a lot of internet hype that oversold the picture by the time I got to it.  I admittedly had higher expectations and on some levels it satisfied.  Marino does a great job as Duncan, the man with the shit problem that just won't go away and there is some great stuff revolving him, his mother and her much younger lover that hat me laughing out loud.  Peter Stormare is hilarious.  The more I see of this guy the more I love. Stephen Root slays me.  The cast does a great job and they're largely the reason to like it but there's something about spots of slow pacing that keeps this from probably getting a repeat watch.  It's playful and fun and a lot of the gags hit their mark.  It kind of reminded my of Frank Henenlotter's BASKET CASE (1982) which reminded me that I love that movie so much that it's a damn shame I haven't seen any of the sequels yet.  As for turd monster movies go, I'm going out on a limb, having not seen any until now, this is probably the best...or number 2 best.
