Movie Info

To (Chapman To Man-chak), a long-time film producer, has yet to produce anything resembling a hit. Beset by financial troubles, he has become desperate for money - so much so that he is unable to pay the alimony to his ex-wife (Kristal Tin). Despite his former spouse's bitterness, their daughter still clings onto her faith in him - and wishes to see him on TV once his new movie premieres. To is soon introduced to a potential Mainland Chinese investor, Tyrannosaurus (Ronald Cheng), by his buddy Lui Wing-shing (Simon Loui Yu-yeung). But Tyrannosaurus is not only the head of a Guangxi triad gang, he turns out to have very particular tastes in food and sex. Regardless, To is determined to woo this investor, even if it means giving into his every demand. -- (C) China Lion

Critic Reviews for Vulgaria

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

True to its title, this energetic Hong Kong comedy trades primarily in off-color gags, yet its tone, like that of John Waters's films, is so playful and inclusive that it's unlikely to offend anyone.

"Vulgaria" is certainly crude, but most of its amusing vulgarity is discreetly held off screen.

Oct 4, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A broad, cartoonish -- and decidedly filthy -- satire of moviemaking is as sophomoric as they come.

The film boasts the spontaneity of a French New Wave romp, while including raunchy gags worthy of The Hangover and Clerks II.

The film's kinky energy eventually wanes, the pileup of profanities losing its initial zing.

Sep 27, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5

Either the golden height of human imaginative endeavor or as profane and crazy as a meth-addicted stripper.
