QUICK TAKE:
Horror: Two possessed and homicidal dolls must deal with the unexpected discovery that they have a gender-confused, pacifist son as they try to transfer their souls back into human bodies.
PLOT:
It's been a number of years since several dolls -- possessed by the spirits of a mass murderer and the ex-girlfriend he killed -- went on a killing spree before meeting their demise. The two inanimate dolls are now appearing in a Hollywood film about them, "Chucky Goes Psycho," that's starring actress Jennifer Tilly (JENNIFER TILLY) who informs her personal assistant Joan (HANNAH SPEARRITT) that she wants to revamp her career. She thinks she can get the chance when she learns that director Redman (REDMAN) is making a film about the Virgin Mary, and offers to do anything to get the lead role.

She has bigger concerns, however, in the form of Glen (voice of BILLY BOYD), a sad little doll who's always wondered about his parents while working as a ventriloquist dummy for a mean man. When he sees that Chucky and Tiffany are his parents, he escapes, boards a plane and arrives in L.A. where he manages to bring his doll parents back to life. Chucky (voice of BRAD DOURIF) and Tiffany (voice of JENNIFER TILLY) are a bit concerned, however, since their anatomically nebulous son isn't sure if he's a boy or girl, although he's positive he's not a killer.

Tiffany thinks that they should give up killing now that they're parents, but Chucky has different plans. Not only does he want to get back into killing, but he also wants to transfer his and Tiffany's spirits into Redman and Jennifer so that they can rid themselves of their doll bodies once and for all. Yet, as they begin to enact their plan, Chucky begins to have second thoughts as he tries to get his son into the business of killing.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of any of the original films, they may, as might horror buffs in general.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong horror violence/gore, sexual content and language.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • JENNIFER TILLY plays herself, a somewhat ditzy actress who will do anything to land the Virgin Mary part in Redman's film, including sleeping with the director (although they're interrupted before that happens). She uses strong profanity.
  • CHUCKY is the murderous doll possessed by a serial killer's spirit who enjoys killing and wants his son to be a chip off the old block. He uses strong profanity and provides the fluids necessary to impregnate Jennifer.
  • TIFFANY is a possessed doll who wants to amend her killing ways (but isn't successful) after learning that she's a mother. She uses strong profanity.
  • GLEN is the conflicted offspring of Chucky and Tiffany who has troubling, violent nightmares but is a gender-confused pacifist until his cross-dressing, killer nature comes to a head.
  • REDMAN plays himself, an actor-director who wants to take up Jennifer's offer for sex in exchange for landing the leading role in his upcoming film. He uses profanity.
  • HANNAH SPEARRITT plays Jennifer's much put-upon personal assistant.
  • JOHN WATERS plays a persistent member of the paparazzi who gets personal photos of Jennifer and Chucky.

    HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


    Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
    Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


    (Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


    OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
    The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated horror flick. Profanity consists of at least 15 "f" words, while other expletives and colorful phrases are uttered. Sexually related dialogue (some of it explicit) is present, a woman's bare breasts are seen in a nonsexual context, while a doll flashes her plastic ones to her male doll boyfriend who's masturbating (we see the hand movement with visible results) in order to artificially inseminate a real woman. A real man and woman prepare to have sex (so that she can get a role in his film), but they're interrupted before that occurs although he tries to get her to perform oral sex on him.

    Violence consists of possessed dolls killing people or other dolls by various means and with various tools (mostly knives) with extremely bloody and gory results (including a decapitation and disembowelment). That material and other standard horror flick scenes may be unsettling, suspenseful or scary to some viewers (mostly younger kids and those with low tolerance levels for such mayhem), but so much of what's presented is done in a campy fashion that it lessens or negates much of those qualities.

    Various characters have varying degrees of bad attitudes, while some crude humor and imitative behavior is present. Some characters drink, one smokes and a doll character has gender identification issues, while related tense family material (among the dolls) is present.

    Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home, you may want to look more closely at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content. For those concerned with bright flashes of light on the screen, there are some bright flashes of lightning in several scenes, while those prone to visually induced motion sickness should note that some early point of view shots might have that effect on them.

  • Jennifer opens some champagne.
  • Tiffany drops some sort of pills into Jennifer and Redman's champagne (to knock them out).

  • Glen has a nightmare of losing bladder control (we see urine puddling around his feet) and then has the same occur to him in real life (we see his wet pants) as his ventriloquist master says, "You're pissing your pants."
  • Chucky the doll has very large and crude-looking scars on his face.
  • Chucky or Tiffany slices a man across the neck, with a great deal of resultant blood. Chucky then repeatedly stabs the man, but we then see that it's just a scene being shot for a film and thus the man was just an actor and not harmed.
  • We see some potentially scary looking prop monster mannequins backstage on a movie set (one with a disfigured/gory face).
  • After Tiffany has been made alive, a puppeteer (unaware of that fact) opens a plate on her back to reveal a bloody and meaty look there.
  • Chucky decapitates a puppeteer with piano wire or the like, sending the severed head up through the air and the body slumping down against a wall with lots of blood pulsing out on it, the wall and floor. Chucky and Tiffany have lots of blood on them and we see several more views of the severed head and its bloody/meaty end where it met the neck. Jennifer then comes in, nearly slips on the blood on the floor and doesn't realize it's real. She then pushes the head with her foot, picks it up and then kisses it before realizing that it (and the blood dripping down from it) is real.
  • We see urine puddle around Glen's doll feet as he's scared.
  • We see the cover of a horror magazine that shows a woman with a gory face.

  • Jennifer grabs a bag and then vomits into it (we only hear the sounds).
  • We see Tiffany down under a dinner table between Redman's legs. She then makes various stabbing motions at him (we hear various squishy and wet sounds) and we see blood and then steaming intestines spill out onto the floor (we see several views of that and them including a close-up).

  • Jealous of Julia Roberts, Jennifer states that she wouldn't have had to wear a push-up bra to appear in "Erin Brockovich" and that she heard that Roberts slept with the director to get the part.
  • A puppeteer makes Chucky say, "Nice t*ts" to Jennifer on a movie set.
  • Some viewers may not like the notion of Jennifer offering to sleep with Redman to play the Virgin Mary in his film and that he wants someone hot to play the role.
  • A ventriloquist puts a large rat into Glen's (the doll) cage, hoping to scare him. It does for a moment until Glen then pets it.
  • Seeing Glen but not realizing he's his son, Chucky jokes that the kid fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

  • Tiffany drops some sort of pills into Jennifer and Redman's champagne (to knock them out).
  • A paparazzo takes photos of Redman and Jennifer fooling around on the sofa as well as silhouetted ones of Chucky standing and masturbating (as seen through a second floor window).

  • Chucky reaches out to fondle Jennifer's pregnancy-swollen, covered breasts as she lies unconscious on a bed (but Tiffany interrupts him).
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Scenes listed under "Violence," "Blood/Gore" and "Jump Scenes" may be unsettling, suspenseful or scary to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material. That said, much of what's on display is done in various levels of camp, thus somewhat lessening or altogether dismissing the scare element (although some may still find it that way).
  • We see the point of view of a killer doll making his way through a house (with heartbeat sounds on the soundtrack and lightning flashing at night). We see a knife pulled from a birthday cake, the ascension of the steps and then encountering the father who picks up the doll (all still seen through its eyes). We then see the knife plunge into the man's chest (with blood on the shirt) with the victim falling over the railing down to the floor below (which he hits quite hard).
  • We see the shape of a woman behind a shower curtain as she showers. As a doll approaches her (all seen through its point of view), we see glimpses of stabbing motions and then see the woman lying dead on the bathroom floor with a pool of blood growing around her head.
  • A ventriloquist puts a large rat into Glen's (the doll) cage, hoping to scare him. It does for a moment until Glen then pets it.
  • We see some potentially scary looking prop monster mannequins backstage on a movie set (one with a disfigured/gory face).
  • A paparazzo suddenly spots Chucky in his darkroom and then sees that he's disappeared just as fast. We then see Chucky up on the ceiling above him, with a knife in his mouth. When Glen alerts the photographer, however, the man backs against some shelving, causing some sulfuric acid to spill down onto his face, eating away half of it and some of his neck (with very gory results) before killing him.
  • We see Tiffany down under a dinner table between Redman's legs. She then makes various stabbing motions at him (we hear various squishy and wet sounds) and we see blood and then steaming intestines spill out onto the floor (we see several views of that and them including a close-up).
  • Joan slowly makes her way upstairs in Jennifer's house and finds her and her limo driver tied to the bed. She's unaware, however, that a doll is slowly stalking her from behind.
  • GUNS/WEAPONS
  • Knives: Used to kill others. See "Violence" for details.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR
  • Phrases: "Little f*cker," "You've got to be f*cking kidding me," "F*ck with your mind," "F*ck you very much," "F*ck what people say," "F*ck, she's fat," "You're a f*cking natural," "The f*cker really had it coming," "You little star f*cker," "I don't know what the f*ck you're talking about," "F*ck it," "Sh*tface" (written and spoken), "You were sh*t," "Bull-sh*tting," "Oh sh*t," "We don't have time for this sh*t," "You're pissing your pants," "Freak," "Who the hell are you?"

  • JUMP SCENES

  • A severed doll arm suddenly grabs a boy.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE)
  • An extreme amount of suspenseful and ominous music plays in the film.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE)
  • None, but some songs had lyrics that we couldn't hear/understand, thus offering the possibility of them potentially containing objectionable material.

  • SEX/NUDITY
  • We see a visual representation of sperm traveling down a vagina toward the awaiting egg.
  • We see the shape of a woman behind a shower curtain as she showers. As a doll approaches her (all seen through its point of view), we see glimpses of the woman's bare breasts and then see a shot of them as she lies dead on the floor after falling to it (with the shower curtain covering the rest of her body).
  • A man dressed as Santa talks on the phone to a woman, suggestively telling her to wait until she sees what he brought her and then calling her a naughty girl.
  • Jennifer shows a great deal of cleavage in various revealing outfits throughout the film.

  • Redman and Jennifer read lines from the his script about the Virgin Mary, with Redman reading that his character has never "lain" with Jennifer's and Jennifer then reading that she's never "lain" with any man. During this, Jennifer gesticulates by running her hand along her bust, with Redman starring at her cleavage as she reads her lines. When he says he's going to pass on her for another actress, she acts sultry toward him and suggests that she'll offer him sex for the part. He then agrees to meet her back at her place.
  • The Tiffany doll shows cleavage.
  • Chucky and Tiffany check to see if Glen is a boy or girl and pull down his pants to reveal a standard plastic doll crotch that's free of any sort of genitalia. Chucky thinks he's a boy who's just a late bloomer.

Chucky then tells Tiffany to give him a hand and so she flashes her plastic doll breasts at him. He then looks through a series of magazines featuring scantly clad women on the covers and comments on "lesbos" and the fact that he's "done her." He then comes across a copy of a horror magazine featuring a woman with a gory face and says, "Here we go...come to poppa." He also tells Tiffany not to let Redman get in Jennifer's pants.
  • Redman and Jennifer do some passionate kissing on her sofa, with him kissing her cleavage. Moments later, he suddenly pulls her head down to his clothed crotch (for oral sex), but Tiffany knocks him out from behind before anything happens.
  • A paparazzo takes photos of Redman and Jennifer fooling around on the sofa as well as silhouetted ones of Chucky standing and masturbating (as seen through a second floor window). The man questions to himself, "A masturbating midget?" and a comment is made about "Get it, mini-me." We see Chucky's rhythmic hand movement in silhouette as well as him holding a cup in person (but we don't see the actual act). Moments later, we see him holding a cup of his semen and he sarcastically asks what he's supposed to do with it. Even later, we see Tiffany holding a turkey baster to it and hear its "slurping" sounds as she fills it while standing between Jennifer's spread legs (her doll body blocks any explicit view). We also see some dripping from the end before she artificially inseminates Jennifer.

  • Tiffany makes some sort of comment about that you can smell it on girls who sell it (meaning sex).
