Reviews

Manure Company, the livelihood of its loyal fleet of salesmen threatens to go, as they say, into the toilet. Enter estranged daughter Rosemary, a high-class- cosmetics salesgirl, who steps in to take control. She is not sure she has a nose for the family business, but she is determined to make foul into profit. Little does she know that a ruthless, slick-talking fertilizer rep is plotting a takeover. Whether she likes it or not, she must trust her top salesman, Patrick Fitzpatrick, to devise a plan to regain Rose's rightful position on top of the heap.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 25 July 2013
Format: DVD
The production utilizes a brown surreal back drops for effect. All the salesmen drive identical brown Plymouths, apparently synonymous with crap. The beginning of the film is loaded with manure humor. Like real manure, after you have been around it for a while, you don't notice it. Mr. Rose dies and leaves the company to his city daughter Rosemary (Téa Leoni). The time frame is the mid 60's. She attempts to get the debt ridden company under control and rides with the salesmen of which Patrick Fitzpatrick (Billy Bob Thornton) is the best.

Things aren't going too well, then the bottom drops out when a rival company threatens to push them out of business, resulting in an unorthodox war between the companies. Meanwhile there is a mysterious man called Nose-tra-dameus or Nelly the Nose (Richard Edson) who visits the office.

The movie is clever, even without the manure humor. Ed Helms is his typical self while Pruitt Taylor Vince gives us his likeable big guy role. I loved the backdrops as every day had a brown hue overcast. My biggest negative was the anachronism of the Endangered Species Act (1973).

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Fake man boobs. Frequent S-word usage, move over South park.

This is the funniest film I have seen for a long time. It is a great satire and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a laugh. Billy Bob Thornton is epic and the chemistry he has with the other actors is inspiring. 5*

Great Flick!! 25 Mar 2012

I purchased this movie because my little brother is in the movie - he plays one of the "enemy" Manure salesmen. The movie was quirky, but funny and the scene props were amazing!!

not bad, defiantly rent first cause it's an aquired taste 17 Feb 2013
By Mr. Joe Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A great subtle, somewhat dry and simple comedy that never takes itself seriously. It follows a group of manure salesman in the 1960s who find themselves in competition with a ridiculously over the top company. This movie is certainly not one of the best movies I've seen but it is entertaining and a good one to pick up from the library or to watch on Netflix.

The acting is excellent, the cinematography is pleasantly artsy, the dialogue is non-stop manure puns with some alright other jokes and it's a good length for the kind of movie that it is. Billy Bob Thornton, Tea Leoni and Ed Helms are perfect leads. The soundtrack is pretty great. My only complaints is that it almost seems unorganized because so many weird and random things are happening all the time that sometimes it's hard to fully grasp why and what just happened.

Language is fairly clean, no sex, nudity or gore. Just a lot of poop jokes and strange events about a company trying to stay afloat and sell manure.
Waste of time 26 Jan 2014
By Rick H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The movie had a few funny scenes but basically it was just a quirky mess. What was up with the sepia tone backdrops? I was hoping this would be a lot better with the likes of Billy Bob, Tea Leoni, Kyle MacLachlan (Ed Helms had one of the funnier roles) but it was almost like a comic version of Twin Peaks, except that was much better. My recommendation is to skip this.
Fun movie 31 Dec 2012

I saw this movie at someone's house and got such a kick out of it. The unusual background, and very unique storyline. We, all ages, enjoyed this movie and will watch it over and over.
