DONKEY PUNCH (2008) THREE TOP HATS

There are a lot of haters out on IMDB hating it up for this movie. “Donkey POOOOOO” they say. “Tripe!” they gripe. “Worst movie ever”. I don’t think it was too bad aside from being a little boring most of the time. It looked nice, the acting was good, it got a little gory here and there and I thought it was mostly believable until the last ten minutes. I also think someone should know what they are getting into when they are going to watch a movie with a sex act for the title. Obviously we’re not getting “The King’s Speech” here. One time, when Netflix first came out and unleashed their legions of D-Grade movies on us, I tried to watch a movie called “Buttcrack” (made by the Troma team) and it was so hideous I couldn’t get through 20 minutes of it – but I knew what I was getting into: it is called Buttcrack for crying out loud. Anyway, I didn’t think this was too bad, but it did drag every now and then.

Three stereotypical, skinny, young, hot British chicks hook up with four stereotypical, good-looking, thin British dudes while on vacation somewhere “Moroccan”. They flirt and drink and decide to go have a good time on the fellows’ yacht. There they take pills and smoke crack and drink and decide it’s time to go do some physical hooking up. While they are getting down, one of the males decides to engage in the physical act the title of the movie offers us and the recipient dies. Next up, the guys decide to cover it up by tossing the body in the ocean but the girls don’t want to play along. The next hour is a gory, decent fight for your life or else type of thing.

Considering all of the action takes place on a boat, I would consider this an accomplishment, but it was kind of boring here and there and some of the actors’ accents were difficult to understand. I also had trouble distinguishing between three of the actors who all looked similar, and what their roles were: is this guy the captain or this guy? Or is it this guy? Who is whose brother? Who is on whose side here? I am using the right “whose” here? I don’t know – not too bad to me.

  1. Hey! I’m the first person to ever read this?? I remember when this came out here. Yeah… The title put me off. I’ll stick with Disney princesses – they would never engage in such activity! : )
