Well, with a title such as "Shit and Champagne", I figured that I would be for something out of the ordinary. And as the movie was labelled a comedy, I figured chances were that it might turn out to be a great movie. Sure, I hadn't heard about writer and director D'Arcy Drollinger's 2020 movie before now as I sat down to watch it, so I wasn't sure what I was in for here.
And I will say that "Shit and Champagne" definitely was something else. However, the movie is somewhat of an acquired taste, and it is not a movie that will easily find an appeal to just everyone in the audience. While I managed to sit through the entire movie, I was less than adequately entertained, as most of the comedy elements in "Shit and Champagne" fell short of hitting the mark, at least in terms of aligning with my sense of humor.
"Shit and Champagne" is a laid back and not-taking-itself-too-serious type of movie, and that was the movie's strong side, because the storyline and script was just not something that turned out all that entertaining for me.
The acting in "Shit and Champagne" was adequate, but I suppose that is how it was supposed to be, over the top and extraordinary, just as those drag queen shows tend to be. But maybe that is just exactly why the movie fell short of entertaining me in a memorable way, as I am not really much of an appreciative fan of that particular scene.
The comedy in the movie mostly fell on dry spots in terms of providing me with a good laugh, so most of the comedy in "Shit and Champagne" just was a swing and a miss for my liking.
Sure, there is an audience out there for a movie such as "Shit and Champagne", of that I am more than sure. I just wasn't in the target audience.
My rating of "Shit and Champagne" lands on a generous four out of ten stars.
