The title of the latest lowbrow yukfest to try and sneak into theaters without being noticed by critics appears, on posters, as “InAPPropriate Comedy,” a reference to the fact that its grab bag of short sketches pop up as if they were being haphazardly generated by a tablet computer app.
That much, at least, is truth in advertising. The 20 or so skits — featuring headliners Rob Schneider, Adrien Brody, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan, along with a supporting cast of nobodies — are like that freebie quote-a-day-app you downloaded and then almost immediately regretted: random and repetitive. A more accurate title would be “Inept, Inadequate and Insipid Comedy.”
The movie is the brainchild of former ShamWow pitchman Vince Offer, who’s credited with directing, co-writing, producing and acting in this seemingly improvised, yet bizarrely stale assortment of crudely misogynistic, scatological, phallic and racist jokes. The opening skit pokes fun at the movie “127 Hours,” which came out more than two years ago.
