Why actresses take roles in dreck like this I'll never know. The money must be fabulous.
A movie of our times, even if it's not an especially good, funny or interesting one.
A sometimes amusing sex farce ...
What would "It's a Wonderful Life" look like if Clarence the angel were replaced by the human personification of George Bailey's sentient penis?
"Bad Johnson" works much better than it should. Because, really, it shouldn't work at all.
A buddy comedy that reeks like stale underpants.
There's some kind of lesson about learning to grow up and stop being a jerk - if you can look past the "Johnson" humour.
The premise is a whopper of a bad idea, made all the more disheartening by the notion that someone thought highly enough of it to see it as a feasible outlet for movie comedy.
As bad as things are for Rich and his limp sidekick, the audience really gets the shaft courtesy of a script that's completely devoid of inspiration.
The central joke in this low-budget comedy should have been a springboard to something either blackly hilarious or more amusingly complex, but the filmmakers seem to have run out of ideas after coming up with the title.
Oh well. They got half the title right...
This is a parable about a man who learns to embrace his better self in the absence of his nether regions. Said parable is neither surprising nor profound, but that wouldn't matter as much if the movie were funny. It isn't.
Some comedies are hilarious, others are down right stupid, and then there is the story of Rich Johnson (Cam Gigandent). Like most men, Rich only thinks with his penis, and it often gets him into trouble, so one night, Rich makes a wish that his penis would leave him alone, and that's exactly what it does. Rich's penis detaches, and comes to life in the form of a walking, talking, human being. In the beginning, this film is an absolute riot, but how many penis jokes can you squeeze into a 90 minute film? Eventually Bad Johnson deteriorates into an eighth graders favorite movie, and becomes really tiresome, but in the insanity, something emerges, (besides Rich's penis), Cam Gigandent. I've seen Gigandent around, and he's usually playing the good looking guy, who's roles really doesn't have much substance, until now. As is the case with most actors, it takes time to find their niche, but Gigandent's may very well be comedy. He was the level headed one, who really blurts out the hysterical line when it is sorely needed, and he was far better than Nick Thune, the man who literally was playing a penis. Bad Johnson isn't the kind of film you'll want to see twice, the jokes are old before the film is even over, but if you're looking for a few good, cheap laughs, this film is absolutely perfect.
