Review:

A collection of bizarre news items you probably haven't seen on television is a great premise for what could be a wickedly funny video. And while some of the funny, crude, and just plain bizarre items on this video hold promise, the execution often falls flat. The tone is set with the opening segment, in which a reporter visits a festival out west where people gather to eat a local delicacy, bull testicles. Some of the interviews with diners are funny, but the jokes soon get repetitive. Indeed, the segments have a tendency to milk a single gag, such as a story on an obscene Santa Claus doll that an unsuspecting child brought home from a toy store. After the raunchy doll is, ahem, exposed, what's referred to as "Santa's surprise" is filmed in close-up from every conceivable angle. There are several segments, including footage shot at the Mardi Gras of revelers of both sexes exposing body parts for the camera and the crowd, or a segment on erotic body piercing, that make this a tape you wouldn't pop into the VCR when kids are around. But if you like weird and occasionally gross humor, watching religious snake handlers, nude bungee jumpers, and a Nevada mooning festival might be what you're looking for. -- Robert J. McNamara
