What a strange film this is. It seems uncertain whether it wants to be a comedy or a drama. The score seems to point to the former option, because without the upbeat, and sometimes cartoonish music, Otis would be a pretty grim movie. It’s almost like the creators figured out, a little too late, that the taboos wouldn’t be positively acclaimed and decided to pimp the film in post.
This movie is about a kidnapper and how small his penis is. He’s a rapist… sort of. We kind of assume that, from the get go, and it gets addressed in dialogue at some point. The comedy is on and off. The tone ranges from hilarious to sinister, and the shift is usually abrupt. Nutcase Otis basically simulates the all-American college years he never had and it involves third base.
The family members are an odd casting choice, and their arc slows down the main one. They’re basically helping detectives find their missing daughter. We’re talking Illeana Douglas as the mother and Daniel Stern as the father. What a pair! It’s hard to keep a straight face with these two around. All in all, this is a fun film but it contains shocking themes. Beware.
