Time Out says

A series of one-dimensional parodies on aspects of American life that lampoons all the expected targets - corporations, TV, commercials, politics - but in a way that makes few dents. Jokes extend little beyond their not-so-original ideas: a news broadcast about Suk Muc Dik and Phuc Hu; some ads that make explicit the implicit sex of most advertising; a TV pundits' tea party; 'Fanny Hill' being read out on a tots' programme. The only permutations the film seems happy with are two sex sketches: one dealing with a heavy petting session in a cinema, the other a sporting commentary on the German performance in the International Sex Games. Throughout a fairly healthy vulgarity prevails over insight.
