5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa... March 14 2004
Format:DVD
Firstly, there's something I must make clear. Vulgar is NOT a Kevin Smith movie, despite it being a View Askew movie. Kevin Smith co-executive produced it and played a bit role, but he did NOT write or direct it - Bryan Johnson did.
That said, I was quite impressed. I rented it not really knowing what to expect; I mean, the only View Askew works I'd seen thus far were Kevin Smith's, but I could tell this would not be the same comedy fare just by looking at the cover. I think it's important that you do not expect to laugh while watching this movie; there are a handful of funny scenes, but that's not really what Vulgar is about.
Brian O'Halloran gives an amazing performance in this movie; I don't think many actors would be brave enough to take on the role of Flappy/Vulgar. For the most part, all the actors are very believable, which is necessary in a film portraying a reality this stark. The cinematography was superb, and the script was well-thought out and solid. Some of the sets were a little drab and lackluster, but I won't hold that against it... hey, it's an indie film.
All that said, Vulgar is a twistedly brilliant film, but it's not for the faint of heart. The final 10 minutes of the film really had my blood pumping - kept me guessing. I recommend you rent it first and test the waters before you buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved it. Oct. 27 2003
Format:DVD
I got to see this move at Vulgarthon 2002 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns and a depth and darkness I hadn't expected before seeing it. The movie is definitely not for everyone. If you have a dark sense of humor (like I do) it is really worth a watch. I believe someone already stated "maybe you should rent it first" before buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to watch, but REALLY worth it. Aug. 28 2003
Format:DVD
I feel Vulgar is a MASTERPIECE, even though it made me sick. I have never thought about a movie as much as I thought about Vulgar. In Vulgar, I never knew what to expect, it was very unpredictable.
I originally got the movie because it had Kevin Smith's name on it (I love his movies), however, be warned this movie is nothing like Kevin Smith's movies, it is in a class all by itself. I have to say Vulgar is my FAVORITE movie. It made me think a lot about society, crime, our justice system, and revenge. This movie changed me in a way I can't describe and I recommend it to anyone over the age of 18.

4.0 out of 5 stars black comedy, an acquired taste July 11 2003
By mike
Format:DVD
Although Vulgar is a dark film it can be comedic at times. It is safe to say that it is a pitch black comedy you need to be in an adventurous mood to watch this film. Although I do like the film, I would suggest renting it first to see if you like it. I do not believe that there is a lot of re-watch value to it. I own Vulgar and have only watched it once
I give it 4 out of 5.
It's nice to see something at a different pace a change for once.
If you are up for an adventure, Rent it

1.0 out of 5 stars From a Kevin Smith fanboi June 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw the View Askew brand on this movie and figured I'd give it a go. Rarely have I so greviously regretted a decision, it is no exaggeration to say that this is the worst movie I have ever seen. I do not usually walk out on movies, especially rentals, but this movie made me get up and walk right out of my own house. The movie starts out with a subject few people can relate to or even care about: clowns. From there it uses the horrible acting, directing and utterly regrettable dialogue to attempt to alienate the viewer even more, until there is little choice except suicide. Allow me to use this space to throw the writer/director a clue: Kevin Smith isn't vulgar for the sake of vulgarity, he uses it in ways that are witty and comedic, and add to the overall comedy or plot content of the movie. I give 1 star, but only because there isn't a selection for -17,842.

4.0 out of 5 stars outta no where... June 25 2003
Format:DVD
I recently got the movie Vulgar, expecting a comedy, but insted it was a thriller, and i was actually quite pleased. I dont know why these other reviews for the movie think its bad, i think its a good movie, and definitally deserves a little more credit than it gets. It's clerks meets deliverence, and if u liked those 2, you'll like this. Warning, need strong stomach.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jay and Silent Bob tackle the issue of clown rape June 18 2003
By Chris R
Format:DVD
In this movie's first 20 minutes, the tone of the movie goes from being somewhat lighthearted and "humorous" to being deadly serious, for seemingly no real logical reason. It's a dynamic that might work in another movie, but in this one it just seems mundane and pointless. It's as if the filmmakers just said "Hey, rape is shocking... let's do that! With a clown!"
The rape scene is sort of reminiscent of the one in Pulp Fiction, only it's about 1000 times less effective. It's also not very shocking (if you've seen one rape scene, you've seen 'em all). It is, however, the only scene in this movie that's semi-memorable. After it's over, the movie continues to shift from one mood to a completely different one, from one genre to another, without any real focus.
This movie might entertain some viewers, maybe some of those diehard Kevin Smith fans who want to see those actors from his movies playing different roles. But for me, this was the first movie I've seen in a long time that made me feel like I just wasted my time.

5.0 out of 5 stars romantic comedy
Unlike other viewers, I'd mark Vulgar a burgeoning classic and place it in the "romantic comedy" genre along with Bad Lieutenant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Honestly, not sure.
This movie was exactly as the title says... It's Vulgar. And it's not for everyone. That would be an understatement in the highest level of the word. Read more
