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.

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.

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.

I'm not too sure what Kevin Smith and co. were thinking with this one. It was a bit weird and overly offensive, even for Kevin Smith. I first rented the movie because of the cast list on the back cover: Brian O'Halloran of 'Clerks' starred (where he's known for his role as Dante), along with Smith himself, Jason Mewes, and a few other Smith-movie regulars (the infamous Walt "the fanboy" has a very significant role). But overall I was more than disappointed. And to be honest, a bit sickened. I love Kevin's movies; all of them, just not this one (even the underground 'A Better Place' was more pleasurable than this) . I'd recommend 'Vulgar' only to anyone who is a HUMONGOUS fan of Kevin Smith and the supporting actors who appear in small roles in his other films. God, I can't even begin to imagine what the unrated version would be like. And I don't want to. This is not a comedy. This is not like 'Clerks', 'Mallrats', 'Chasing Amy', 'Dogma', or 'Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back'. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is for the decent cast and the "faster than Walt Flanagan's dog" reference. Before you think about watching this movie, ask yourself if you'd enjoy watching a poor, pitiful clown get brutally raped by two kids and their father. Otherwise, skip it.

In his directorial debut, Bryan Johnson's very violent cult-wannabe film "Vulgar" portrays the life of the hapless Will Carlson (Brian O'Halloran) struggling to earn a living by working as a clown named "Flappy" for children's parties. Living in a dump and driving a worthless car, Will wants to earn more money, but only as a clown. He foolishly decides to work as a scantily-clad, clown-in-drag named "Vulgar" at men's bachelor parties. His first job as "Vulgar" takes him to a motel where three men are waiting: a father named Ed Fanelli (Jerry Lewkowitz) and his two sons Frankie (Ethan Suplee) and Gino (Matthew Maher). Ed, Frankie and Gino aren't there for a bachelor party; instead, they rape the unsuspecting clown. After being bound, beaten and raped, the three leave "Vulgar" for dead in the motel. Realizing he's alone, Will struggles back to his car and drives home where he makes a half-hearted attempt at suicide.
Telling his friend Syd (Bryan Johnson) about the ordeal, Will finds the strength to return to the safer job of being a clown at children's parties. Upon reaching a home where he is to perform as "Flappy", he finds it surrounded by police. The child's estranged father (Scott Schiaffo) is holding his daughter at gunpoint inside the house. Somehow, with the home surrounded by armed police, Will dressed in his brightly-colored clown costume sneaks into the house and rescues the girl, becoming an instant hero. (This is the part of the film where my opinion took its final turn for the worst.) Will is approached by TV-producer Martan Ingram (Kevin Smith, "Silent Bob" of "Dogma" & "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" fame) to star in his own children's television show as "Flappy". Will agrees and becomes an instant success, but ghosts from the past threaten his achievement.
