DIRTY SANCHEZ

Comedy, Documentary
A dirty sanchez is…well, we won't go there. Suffice it to say, it's probably the only thing you won't see in Dirty Sanchez (the movie). Well kinda. A more stomach-churning, depraved version of Jackass, Dirty Sanchez launches Pritchard, Dainton, Pancho and Joycey-a bunch of British blokes with a penchant for pranks and self-inflicted bodily harm-on a world tour of the seven deadly sins, sent by the bidding of Satan (seriously). Dirty Sanchez goes straight for the jugular with no-holds barred spectacles that could make even the most hardcore fan turn away. Straight-edge these guys are not, and pints and "fags" aren't the only things they ingest or stick in their bodies. There are also staples, nails, paintballs, liposuction (for a drinking game, of course) and even beer enema shotguns. Nothing is sacred and the humor is seriously twisted, but it's all done in fun and flaunted on-screen by this raunchy group of guys. Whether it's picking on Pancho when he's sleeping, which happens a lot, or playing cruel jokes on each other, they always seem like they are genuinely enjoying themselves. Dirty Sanchez may not be for everyone, but those who do see it will have one the craziest and memorable cinema-going experiences of their lives.


CAST & CREDITS

Directed by Jim Hickey

With a B.A. in Combined Arts, JIM HICKEY started his professional career with Somerset County Council as an underling in the Social Services department. Shortly thereafter, he started work as an intern at MTV UK in 2000. Hickey's dedication to his job soon paid off-after two years of working on various shows, he was asked to produce and direct the music show Gonzo with Zane Lowe. It was while working on Gonzo that he first met the Dirty Sanchez Boys. When the director of the first season of Dirty Sanchez went on maternity leave, Hickey was drafted in to take over as Producer/Director. MTV was so impressed by his ability to get the boys to inflict as much pain on themselves as possible that he was asked to stay on and direct the third season. The rest is history.
