The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie! Greg Franklin
Here's a good rule of thumb for Drawn Together: if you're offended by the image of a woman squatting on the ground and projectile shooting a foetus across the room from her vagina, or the idea of a superhero molesting and urinating on a partially decomposed corpse, then this isn't the show for you. I personally found a great deal of amusement in the early episodes of the Comedy Central series about various animated characters living in a Real World-style reality show. In fact, I can probably recite every word of Foxy's song "la-la-la-la-labia" and have used the term "Octopuswa" in conversation more than once (for those not in the know, Clara, the Disney princess character, has an octopus for a vagina). None of it really had much of a point, which is essentially "the point" of this direct-to-DVD movie, which follows the gang as they try to get their cancelled show back on the air, dodging attacks from I.S.R.A.E.L. (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), a robot determined to permanently erase them. After learning of said cancellation when Foxy is able to say the C-word (not crème-brulee), the team go their separate ways. Toot strikes up a sexual affair with the homosexual Barney Rubble, who has mistaken her for a man and refers to her vagina as a "man-hole," while Captain Hero engages in sexual relations with a corpse he stole from a funeral. Amongst the various references, which include a dead roadrunner and various recognizable superheroes in degrading sexual situations, jokes about anal bleaching, bloody secretions and coprophilia take up most of the narrative, with Ling Ling fawning over Xandir, who is in turn jealous of Captain Hero's decomposing girlfriend. It's more of the same, for anyone familiar with the series, and is really just an excuse to revel in crudity and racist humour. The DVD includes a variety of supplements with cast interviews and details about the animation, but most amusing is the 3-D glasses instructional video, which is led by a nude woman's midsection. They elaborate a lot on the 3-D sex scene, which isn't particularly shocking, even if it features a view of fingering from the perspective of Foxy's vulva. (Paramount)
