Over the course of his 25-year filmmaking career, Kevin Smith has conjured a multitude of indie oddities like Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and the unforgettably goofy Jay and Silent Bob. Now he may have made his most bizarre film yet, Yoga Hosers.
Don't believe it? We've got one word for you. Bratzis. Bratzis are one-foot tall Nazis made of bratwurst. Bratzis are the antagonists that create the challenging dilemma that co-stars Lily-Rose Melody Depp and Harley Quinn Smith — the director's daughter — must overcome.
Along with a legendary Quebecois man hunter named Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp), the yoga-obsessed Canadian convenience store clerks must defeat these evil sausages in order to get to an important high school party.
Critics who saw Yoga Hosers at this year's Sundance Film Festival probably wouldn't say it's worth your time. Variety's critic put a fine point on reasons why, writing that chaining "two lovely and promising teenage actresses to material this dreadful could be reasonably construed as an awfully expensive form of child abuse."
That's pretty harsh. After all, if we're talking about blatant weirdness, this flick doesn't seem too far off from Seth Rogan's animated food-themed Sausage Party.
If you are uncertain as to what 100 minutes of a Nazi sausage-centric plot will do for you, you can always buckle up and watch the trailer below to get a taste of what Yoga Hosers is all about.
