Movie Review: ‘Butt Boy’ (2020) Is Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before

Whoo boy, what did I just watch? I’m not quite sure if I’ve ever seen a movie like this, but I gotta say, I actually enjoyed every single minute of it. When my editor first asked if I wanted to review anything, she showed me the trailer for Butt Boy before anything else, and I laughed. I didn’t ask for any more info, and I said, “Let’s do this!”

So I did. In the fleeting hours since being given Butt Boy for review, I’ve watched it three times. I can’t quite tell you what it is about this film that I love so much without giving spoilers, but I’ll give you the gist of it. It’s about a man named Chip, played by Writer/Director Tyler Cornack, a married IT man who’s seemingly bored with his life. He discovers that he… enjoys having things in his… ass. Yes, due to a proctology exam, he craves a new sexual fetish, and oh my God, it gets insane.

I’ve always said that if a movie is inherently ridiculous and takes itself seriously, it’s a bad film. I have to say that this is one of those rare times that I’m absolutely wrong. I think that’s part of what makes Butt Boy so great. While being inherently ridiculous, its serious tone and nature are what really put this film together.

Let’s go off the rails for a moment and talk about Tyler Rice’s character, Detective Russel Fox. He is everything you’d see in a typical crime thriller, just as a character describes it in the movie, with brooding, greasy slicked-back hair, etc. He’s got a cigarette hanging out of his mouth any chance he gets, and he goes to Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s the perfect montage of every cheesy detective you’ve ever seen in a film. But it works! It drives me absolutely crazy because, by all rights, it shouldn’t, but it does.

The script, the editing, the color correction… it all builds this insane world around two very different characters who are tied to each other in a way that you’ll never see again in any film. I had an absolute blast with Butt Boy, and I recommend it to anyone looking for something new and interesting. While Butt Boy is exactly what I expected from the trailer, I was not expecting the turn of events in the film. You should really give this movie a shot. I have a strange suspicion that you won’t be disappointed.

I love this film, and I look forward to the next project that Tyler Cornack writes and directs. Keep up the good work! Butt Boy hits VOD April 14th from Epic Pictures!
