Having spent much of his career filtering good humour through very bad taste, writer-director Pang Ho-cheung delivers arguably his naughtiest picture to date with a pitch-black comedy.

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.

A producer goes to bizarre lengths to complete a soft-core film in this coarse, exuberant Hong Kong comedy.

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

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

Vulgaria is being marketed as a "dirty" movie, but that's underselling the film's real strengths.

A transparent, bait-and-switch disappointment strictly for suckers.

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

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

It fails to produce any humor - or even any skin.

Pang Ho-cheung can't help but humanize Vulgaria's characters, which is a kiss of death for what's meant to be a farce of escalating obscenity.

While the film has no problem sticking its hand down its own pants, the end result is a total mess.
