TLDR

Small penis.

What it's about

After his girlfriend rejects his marriage proposal, a virgin man goes to Thailand with his best friends, where locals would mistake him for a pornstar named Big Bird.

The take

The tags raunchy and irreverent get thrown around on Netflix like I throw around the word fascinating. But make no mistake about it, this was disgusting right off the bat. There’s not a lot to the jokes, though, other than terrible accents and caricatures and small dick references. It feels like a reenactment of a mid standup comedy bit that went on too long. It's a fun bro movie that tells conservative Pinoy culture to suck it, but it’s a visual and narrative mess, and it has the balls to try and end on a meaningful note when it never attempted any semblance of it throughout.

What stands out

It made satisfying use of Parokya ni Edgar’s “Don’t Touch My Birdie.”
