This is a film that really didn't need to be made, it shouldn't have been made. I can't believe that someone with the money and resources to make a movie would actually waste it on a project like this.

Gummo is easily one of the worst movies ever. I won't go into the plot, because there isn't one. There's no real acting either. It's just some "different" looking people doing stuff. Stuff that includes: killing cats, putting electrical tape on nipples, riding bikes, paying to have sex with retards, talking about nothing, getting drunk, confiding in midgets, and much more.

There are no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The whole thing has a feeling of sickness to it.

If you still think you're gonna like Gummo, you probably will.

Such trash it boggles the mind. 0 stars rounded up to 1.
