Folks, it’s time to watch the movie Gummo! It’s one of the most bizarre, but hauntingly memorable films you’ll ever see.

The following is a quote from a review given by the film critic James Brundage of Filmcritic.com: A brilliant, darkly poetic work that is able to both enrapture and disgust”. Yeah … it’s a review for the Oscar winning movie A Clockwork Orange (1971), but I think it works just as well for Gummo (1997).

In the best scene of the movie, the main character shows that you don’t need fitness equipment or a gym to whip yourself into shape. So we’ve taken his “workout routine” and offered it to our readers. It’s perfect if you’re strapped for cash and can’t afford gym fees…or maybe you’ve been kicked out of your gym for trying to install hidden cameras where they don’t belong.

How to Workout with Silverware:

  1. Go to your kitchen and rummage through your utensil drawers.
  2. Find 5-6 spoons and/or forks.
  3. Wrap them together with some “Rape Tape” (A.K.A. duct tape).
  4. Repeat Steps 2 & 3 until you have two “dumb” bells.
  5. Head down to your dingy, rat-infested basement.
  6. Queue up “Like a Prayer” by Madonna on a dilapidated 80’s style cassette tape player and press “Play“.
  7. Blast the music loudly as you start doing bicep curls with your makeshift dumbbells.
  8. Feel the burn as you start to get into the workout. If you want to push yourself a little more, keep the roll of tape around one of you arms to add that extra “burn”.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please don’t feel self-conscious when your Mom comes down to the basement to fold laundry because she’ll probably enjoy what’s going on.

Watch this scene in all its glory below, then go home and cancel your gym membership … cuz you won’t need it anymore!

After watching Gummo you also will have learned…

  1. How to properly style your hair so that you look like an inbred jackass (see DVD cover)
  2. How to seduce the hot retarded girl in your neighborhood
  3. How to slap-fight
  4. How to correctly eat pasta while bathing (and a chocolate bar too, even after it falls into the dirty bath water)

Where does Gummo rank in comparison to the greats like Crow 2 or Good Luck Chuck? Thanks.

Oh…it’s up there all right; or should I say “down” there.

I consider Gummo one of the worst movies I have EVER seen. I gave it one star for pity on NetFlix, since it does have 1 or 2 great scenes like the silverware workout scene which you can fast forward to.

I would say the ABSOLUTELY MOST IMPORTANT thing to do when watching Gummo is to WATCH THE 10-MINUTE DVD EXTRA *FIRST*.

It kind of sets things up so that you know what to expect. These aren’t actors. These are people who work at Burger King and the meat factory.

My favorite scene is the guy fighting the chair. My wife Carolyn was disturbed at the level of violence — and the victim was a CHAIR, for chrissakes! The intensity of hate and rage in the “chair attack” was a beautiful, dark thing.

The fact that the “actor” had just gotten out of prison the day before only lent his “role” more credibility. His rage was real, and he was finally free to do what he wants — fuck shit up. Finally, he got his chance, and took it out on a poor, defenseless chair.

I guess he’s reformed, now that his only “victims” are furniture?

ClintJCL, that was a good scene too. This movie would have been even worse if they used real actors. By using mostly non-actors, the film looked and felt more disturbing.
