This trashy laugh-fest collection of rude, crude and ridiculous comedy skits feature an array of high profile actors (and even Oscar winners!). It's all-out bad taste, but you can't help laughing (often feeling a bit guilty).

For some reason the link skit tying these shorts together differs for the US version. They get a filmmaker pitching the worst movie ideas ever and stars Seth McFarlane, Dennis Quaid, and Greg Kinnear. But, our version got kids trying to revenge prank the one's brother and mess up his laptop, distracting him by laying down a challenge to find the most dangerous movie ever – so they scour the internet and encounter the various segments at different locations.
"The Catch" has a woman go on a blind date with a man that seems perfect, except for one ridiculously horrid flaw that has to be seen.
"Homeschooled" is an awkwardly creepy piece with parents replicating their child's horrid high school experiences at home.

"The Proposition" breaches another taboo with a woman who loves her boyfriend so much, she wants him to poop on her(!).

In "Veronica" two parted lovers rekindle their fiery relationship, in front of the supermarket PA microphone...

"iBabe" is a ridiculous poke at the iPod, but is the shape of a life-sized naked woman.

“Super Hero Speed Dating” has an obknoxious Batman messing with Robin while he's at a speed dating session.

"Machine Kids" is one of the least effective bits, mocking human rights type ads and child espolitation.

"Middleschool Date" and "Tampax" are linked in its (bloody) subject matter.

"Truth or Dare" gets very silly when two blind-daters go to extremes with this game.

“Happy Birthday” hits another ridiculous note when a guy kidnaps a Leprechaun for his friend's big day.

"Victory's Glory" jabs at sports films where the underdogs have to make an emotional push, but, the guys doubting themselves is a tall black team who don't believe they can beat the short white team.

The far-out tale of "Beezel" has a man stuck in the middle of his girlfriend and his jealous animated cat.

PS. Local model Elbe Van Der Merwe features in one scene.
