A film student had great success creating YouTube videos in his undergrad days, but now that he has graduated he has to figure out how to earn a living. His iconoclastic style is too free-wheeling to be harnessed by any mainstream ad agency, and even the most daring consumer product companies find his ideas too outrageous to be associated with their brands, even when those brands specifically target stoners! He does finally find a medium that allows him to earn money without compromising: uncensored late-night ads for (ahem) adult-oriented services.

That's a flimsy premise, to be sure, but it only takes up about fifteen minutes of running time. The structure of the plot is only a framing device, because the real meat of Stonerville is actually a series of unrelated comedy skits, ala Groove Tube or Kentucky Fried Movie. The various sketches unfold in the young filmmaker's imagination as he spies everyday events and tries to picture how he could turn them into funny internet videos.

There is an ensemble cast, and several of them appear in multiple roles. Frankly, that can be kind of confusing, because some of the actors are recognizable. For example, the guy who plays Jackie Chiles on Seinfeld appears in two different substantial roles in this film, and does not try to distinguish them in any way. He plays a corporate executive and a prominent sportscaster without even a change of wardrobe. I guess that wouldn't really matter if the sketches were funny, but they aren't.

This was Leslie Nielsen's last film, and that's sad for at least two reasons. One, of course, is that Leslie will no longer be around to make us smile. The other is that his final legacy will be this ineffective straight-to-vid comedy. Even the great Nielsen is dragged down by the lame writing, so you can imagine how bad the scenes can be when the lines are delivered by such lesser lights as the dreaded Pauly Shore.


There's quite a bit of nudity, but most of it is anonymous


The Story of Fuck


A good-hearted record company executive gets one of his best clients stolen away by an evil executive in the same firm. The good executive is not really up to revenge, but his crafty secretary has other ideas. She engineers a massive scam in which the evil executive is duped into signing a band which doesn't even exist. Evil Guy is led to believe that a band called FUCK is the edgiest, rockingest band to come along in years, and he ends up giving their manager (actually a sleazy lawyer hired by the secretary) a big contract to keep the non-existent lads from signing elsewhere. Given that foundation built by the secretary, the only thing Good Guy has to do to bring the scheme to fruition is to come up with the least talented band in history and rename them FUCK, thus humiliating Evil Guy when he presents the much-heralded FUCK to the world. At that point the film drifts off into Springtime for Hitler territory.

This is one of the strangest films since the 70s. It's filled with all manner of bizarre images, non-sequiturs, exaggerated characters, flashing colors, and surreal situations. There are space aliens, devils, angels, look-alikes, and even a board game with Death, Bergman-style. Well, to be accurate, it's not Death but Satan who's playing backgammon, and he's cheating, as you might expect from the Prince of Lies. At least Death plays fair.

The cast is extremely eccentric and performs with exaggerated enthusiasm, so it plays out like an episode of Benny Hill on LSD. I sometimes found the working-class English accents and slang almost indecipherable, and I generally dislike self-consciously odd films, but this is all so silly, and the energy level is so high, that I did get the occasional laugh and never fast-forwarded during this truly bizarre British film.
