Rich is a complete dick, at least to the women he goes out with. He simply cannot keep his penis in his pants. After a particularly bad fuck-up, his penis detaches from his body and becomes a sentient being.

You have to hand it to Jeff Tetreault, the premise of the movie is definitely eye catching and mostly original. In fact, you might remember this movie from the Top 10 Movies to Look Out For in May 2014 that was published on this blog earlier this year.

I made a terrible error.

Remember how I said I thought there was the possibility that it would be a hell of a lot of dick and fart jokes? Yeah, there kind of was. Admittedly, there was a slightly deeper romantic story woven through it and there were a couple of thriller-like moments, but it wasn’t enough for me to honestly label this movie good.

I enjoyed the chemistry between Cam Gigandet (Easy A, Never Back Down, Reckless) and Katherine Cunningham (Mind Games, Jupiter Ascending, Two Days in February), but I think it had more to do with my personal enjoyment of the actors than the actual film.

The point is: I wanted to love this movie. Unfortunately, there really wasn’t enough substance for things to work out like that.
