With Mormonism as his target and tastelessness as his goal, Trey Parker, co-creator of South Park, plays Joe Young, a young Mormon sent to do missionary work in Los Angeles. Naturally, Joe quickly finds himself in trouble, but thanks to his martial arts skills, he beats off a horde of Maxxx Orbison's (Michael Dean Jacobs) henchmen, prompting Orbison to offer Joe the lead role in his porno film as Captain Orgazmo. Despite some reservations, Joe takes the role because the money will help pay for an elaborate wedding his fiancé is planning back in Utah.
Along with his trusty sidekick, Choda Boy (Dian Bachar), Joe is pulled into some real-life situations that require his skills. When Joe's fiancé, Lisa (Robyn Lynne Raab), is kidnapped by Orbison, Orgazmo and Choda Boy must come to her rescue using a working "orgazmorator" -- a weapon that incapacitates bad guys by causing intense orgasms.
For those of you who happen to be brain-dead, do note that the "orgazmorator" is just the slightest bit of a rip-off of Woody Allen's "orgazmatron" from "Sleeper." In fact, write each word on a piece of paper, hold both pieces against each other in front of a light source, and you'll discover that they're practically fucking identical.
Combine that with a lot of humor that's strangely reminiscent of John Waters and the best one can say of Parker is that he's managed to paste together somebody else's movie. Maybe that and "It's not as bad as BASEketball," but then neither is a root canal and a sandblaster enema.
