A performance artist falls hard for a depressed department store shoe-salesmen who is dealing with his recent divorce and separation from his two kids.

For those that haven’t been initiated, this is the Poop Back and Forth Forever movie.

When I ran across that clip, I shared it with Amy and Marci while asking them, “Do you want to see something funny, but really messed up?” Amy wavered and Marci said “Yes!” It is hilarious, and sets the tone for the movie. It is what you would call a quirky indie film.

The main plot line is about the performance artist, played by the writer/director Miranda July. She’s an odd one. She works as a driver for elderly people while trying to get her art shown in a gallery. She is attracted to a shoe salesman guy, but he’s trying to figure out if he has another shot with his wife who just kicked him out. he’s also realizing it is harder being a single dad since he didn’t pay much attention to his two boys while married. They are the kids in the clip. They are the best part of the movie.

I actually enjoyed the subplots more than the main plot. There is another one with some teen girls dangerously flirting with an older guy. it’s very twisted and very wrong, yet funny. The two boys have more scenes in the movie, but the younger kid has the best scenes and when you find out who the person is on the other side of the chat, it is not who you expect.

If it wasn’t for the two brothers in the movie subplots, I’m not sure I would have been a big fan of the movie. It dragged during the main plot points and I had to stop myself from turning it off since it just wasn’t grabbing my attention. If you are a fan of the clip up above, I recommend seeing it so you can see all the scenes that relate to it. ))<>((
