EXTREMELY Uncomfortable!
14 October 2019 | by tesswyskoSee all my reviews

As someone who has worked with people with multiple different disabilities for years, situations of a sexual nature often come up and it's never easy or comfortable to deal with. People with mental disabilities especially developmental disabilities don't understand and process things the same and to them it's almost a childlike game that they want to try to understand and they feel like they are left out of so it's of they're inquisitive nature to try to figure out an experiment. So to have a movie revolve around people with developmental disabilities and sexual a sexual premise, is already something that should be handled very carefully because of the sensitive nature for everyone involved, it's no laughing matter and shouldn't be handled as such but also it can be a learning tool but doesn't have to be handled in a cold and sterile environment either. As in back in the 80s when there was a very beautiful movie to which the Name Escapes Me but it was all about a theater group comprised people with developmental disabilities mainly Down syndrome who we're not expected to succeed and ended up putting on a gigantic show of Liberace songs to critical acclaim! That's the type of movie that can make a difference and be entertaining at the same time.

This movie was deeply disturbing making my skin crawl! It's about two brothers, and the one brother obviously has Down syndrome but I missed the split-second where it was completely explained what they were saying happened to him in birth but I did hear several Times Square the other brother mentioned that he ran over his head with a car of all things! And so there's a deep-seated resentment between the two brothers. But back and forth the brother with the developmental disability is a Peeping Tom and videotapes sexual encounters between his brother and his brothers girlfriends! But what's worse is the brother without any issues developmentally actually is able to perform better knowing that his brother is watching! Now that's some real sexual deviance. His girlfriend is still married and going through a divorce her husband shows up with literally a beer can in his hand drunk as a skunk to the divorce proceedings it refuses to divorce her unless she proclaims that she cheated on him. The brother with developmental disabilities draws dirty pictures of their underage niece in a bikini. But the absolute worst thing is when they're making these Home Videos between the two brothers and the dad and they take a samurai sword and pretend to cut the dad's penis off and the dad hands them a strap-on and then they go outside to a park and the one brother drops his drawers and he's got some sort of leggings on with black strings and the other brother with developmental disabilities gets down on his knees and pretends to perform fellatio on his brother right there in the park to try to revive the strap on that was the fathers penis that he was attaching to his brother! They called it mouth-to-mouth! I was in shock! This movie is completely vile! I mean it's borderline porn! I'm really in disbelief that it's on Netflix! I thought I was sitting down to a feel good if not educational Style movie and I got none of the above. I wish there was something below 1 star. I highly recommend you avoid this movie!
