Choosing a favorite movie ever, has always been tough for me. Some can rattle it off, others lie because that’s a highly social-political chess move in life. For me, I usually have a steadfast movie/band/computer game, which is usually ‘good’ in all respects, but it ends up being more of a quick answer to a pointless question, rather than a true analysis of what being the best is.

My favorite game is Commander Keen for much of the same reasons, and favorite movie is Goonies for just being awesome, but I don’t think I’m in the minority in that case. Trying to really dig down and figure out what makes a favorite movie just seems too complex, and will most likely be replaced shortly with a new one.
Now this is going to be one of the more stupid things I write, but Monsturd gets the bathroom humor right. But aren’t toilet jokes just a cop out for actual humor? Well yes…usually. But Monsturd fills and entire with it, and it never seems to drag. I believe this is due partially to the very dry delivery and not jumping right on the easy jokes. Most of the characters are trying to seriously deal with what is probably the stupidest thing that has ever come their way.
Try not to laugh; you can’t. See someone put effort into this. They had to consciously film and edit it, and at no point did they pause and ponder what else they could have been doing with their lives. It’s truly beautiful.
Now the movie does drag a little in the middle. They do an impressive job making the jokes fresh, but sooner or later the plot has to move on and build to a climax. And soon enough it does with a Chili cookoff no less. And where there’s chili, there’s bound to be toilets. This is where people are most vulnerable. So with adult diaper armor (and a brilliant gearing up montage) and some over the counter diarrhea medicine inside Super Soakers, they set off to do battle.
