After serving three long years in prison, a registered sex offender (Gabriel McIver) returns to civilization, only to find an environment that's completely uncivilized. At the top of his list is finding a job -- and getting his vindictive girlfriend (Kristen Tucker) to put out again.

This Director Knows What He's Doing
Verified purchase
He's made at least two films revolving around sex offenders, but the first one I watched is a very different style - and portrays a much more sympathetic character - than this. But... it's realistic. Like, the sex offender guy is a selfish scumbag but he's also smart in a way, and he comes across as very pretentious and condescending, and I feel like "yes this is real, this is what these guys are like, they're not all mentally disabled." And of course, the only woman who he can have a relationship with is his puzzlingly attractive and productive-member-of-society girlfriend who doesn't want to have sex with him. You know that being a sex addict, this is the only way he can feel continual desire and something resembling respect, is for this woman who rejects him sexually. Of course, though, you also wonder wtf she is doing with him, he's actually really immature for his age and disrespectful as a committed partner, and I guess she must have been attracted to him at one time (over the course of the documentary it is established they've known each other for years). On top of all this, the director shows what's messed up about the way society deals with sex offenders (especially in Austin, TX) without making the viewer feel sorry for the main character.

Bad

I only found out about this film after running across the trailer on youtube. I actually thought it was a joke trailer and I was surprised to find out it is an actual film. The problem is it's so poorly done it just isn't watchable - vulgar for no reason, not funny, terrible actors reading a terrible script, horrible shoddy camerawork. The entire thing feels cheap and homemade - extreme low budget B movie. It just is not watchable.

It could have been much better with a less annoying protagonist.

There’s some humor in this but it’s not consistent enough to be a solid comedy but there’s enough to make it interesting. The RSO/girlfriend theme is hard to buy since she seems to have little to no reason to be with him and all he seems to want from her is sex and absent that he seems to have no interest in her. The supporting cast and some of their lines are the best part and it did have a bit of a surprise ending. It’s worth a view… just not memorable.

Mockumentary

Funny with a lot of weird situations. Why the girlfriend puts up with the RSO is hard to understand. He's such a cynical jerk, but you have to kind of like him.

Comical at times but not very insightful or informational regarding RSOs

Byington is brilliant. Master of High Laconics (pun). His ensemble players are terrific. Just discovered him/his folks 2 days ago and cannot get enough of them.

Amusing family fun!
Verified purchase
As wild and transgressive as an early John Waters film, and with a shameless unrepentant sex offender as the offensive protagonist. Amusing family fun!
