FILM REVIEW | Butt Boy – it has to be seen to be believed!
A movie with a title butt boy and a slogan “take the stand” surely needs to be watched, right?
The title has a sexual connotation but that’s not the subject of the film – in a sense.
butt boy is actually a dramatic horror movie where you are going to laugh it is so ridiculous!
The story tells the story of a man with a mundane job and a mundane family – he has no joy in life! Then one day he goes to his doctor for a physical exam where the doctor does the inevitable finger-up-ass prostate exam. However, our hero, the former alcoholic Chip (Tyler Cornack – who also wrote and directed this plum role for himself – no), really enjoyed the prostate exam. He enjoyed it so much that when he gets home he starts inserting more objects into his ass, including butt plugs. But these objects go up and then inside him. Soon enough household items, her dog, and then people go up there. Yep, you read that right – her butt is starting to suck people up.
At an AA meeting, Chip is named as the sponsor of new Russell (Tyler Rice), a police detective. After a child goes missing from Chip’s business on your child’s day at work, Russel is accidentally assigned to the case. And while he doesn’t really want to investigate Chip despite all the evidence that seems to point to it, Russel is also missing, and I don’t have to tell you where he ended up! It’s hard to believe that the plot just keeps getting more and more complicated until the penultimate final scene which is truly explosive!
Critics have been harsh on this film, yes it’s bad. But it’s a movie that isn’t meant to be taken seriously (come on, with a title like that, you can’t take it seriously). Rice and Shelby Dash’s good tricks playing Chip’s frustrated wife elevate the movie a bit, but ultimately it’s a movie that will make you forget about real world issues!
Available on Amazon and all good digital retailers.
