Donkey Punch? The most ridiculous name for a potentially good movie ever made!

I was perusing through the interweb, as I usually do every night (well technically it’s day AND night…damn I really need to get a job) and I came across the name of a movie that made me realize that “Hollywood” (and I use that term loosely as any movie production company anywhere in the world) may have finally reached the end of creativity.

Yes, being a Star Wars fan by default (and of course, that would include that big, fluffy, hairy fat ass beast of a man George Lucas and all of the ass infused crappety stuff he continues to put out) I appreciate ridiculous movie names such as “Attack of the Clones”,  “The Phantom Menace” and “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” (I won’t get into Lucas’s latest work “Red Tails” about the Tuskegee Airmen, only because “Red Tails” makes me think waay too much about the syphilis these guys had to deal with and not the dang planes they flew).  But there comes a point that you realize, the people assigned to make movies have just run out of good stuff.

Seriously, how many fucking remakes are coming out?  Just think about it…

So…with that being said, behold!…what might possibly be one of the most ludicrous premises for a movie, just might, at the same time, be a pretty entertaining Friday evening with your significant other at the cinema.  The movie is called “Donkey Punch”.  And before I get any deeper into the movie itself, first for those of you who have no idea what a “Donkey Punch” is, we probably should toss out a definition (thank you Wikipedia).

Donkey punch is a slang term for an apocryphal and potentially lethal[1] sexual practice supposedly performed during anal sex. The purported practice involves the penetrating partner punching the receiving partner in the back of the head or neck (what is known in boxing as a rabbit punch, after a technique to kill rabbits) allegedly causing the receiving partner’s anal passage to tense up and increase the pleasure of the penetrating partner.[2] When used, the donkey punch is almost exclusively executed during or just before the orgasm of the penetrating partner.

And for the reading impaired:

The movie stars a bunch of no name British actors and is about three women, a cute one, an ugly one, and another ugly one on vacation in Spain.  They hook up with some guys that want to party and who just so happen to have a yacht.

At some point during the extravaganza, they have a great big orgy and one of the men, persuaded by everyone else, is encouraged to try the high risk sex maneuver called the “Donkey Punch” on one of the girls (probably one of the ugly ones).  For some reason, rather than reporting the death to the police, they decide the toss the body overboard which results in some sort of life or death struggle.

Whatever, bottom line, on paper this movie sounds like a complete pile of shit…I’m sure like most suspense movies of this nature, you’ll have the tough strong guy, the closet gay guy, the good guy that’s really a hero, and the crazy as fuck guy that you at first are lead to think is the bad one…but turns out to be good…or just fucking dead.  Whatever.  Most of this we’ve already seen…except this time it’s the “donkey punch” twist.

Makes you wonder if at some point during the production meetings for the film someone said “Hey, what if we do a sequel called “Dirty Sanchez”??”

…BUT…curiosity as always gets the better of me, and why just read about something when you can watch a little bit of it also…so I decided to take a peek at the movie trailer…(seriously who wouldn’t want to see the “dangerous” ‘donkey punch’ in action??).  Check out the trailer below (and I’ll go ahead and break it to you now, unfortunately the “DP” is not seen during the trailer…but…Oooo…nice marketing by the films producers!).

As crazy as it sounds, the movie actually doesn’t look too bad.  (I love the scene at the end when one of the girls (an ugly one), charges at the camera screaming at “someone” with a outboard motor…very cool).  Is it original?  Nope.  (see 1998’s Very Bad Things), and yes surely Hollywood is grasping for straws with some of the stuff they are putting out…BUT…for an hour and a half of your time you can’t beat it.  Starts Jan 23rd here in the States and my guess is that the $700K they spent to make it will be exceeded during the first weekend.  And if you want to see the American version…rent Very Bad Things.

  1. first off, the name is the most appropriate name to call the movie. what else would it be? “the incident on a yacht in spain”. doesnt sound quite right.
    second of all.. this is a BRITISH movie, not a HOLLYWOOD movie. and i would rate it 5/5. amazing film! especially for a british one. with the most appropriate name ever.
    made me want to watch it anyway.. and it obviously got your attention. so the name worked.
