Horribly Offensive--Not for Whiney Babies!

"I saw this movie at its US premiere at the Chicago Underground Film Festival years ago. It's downright Offensive! Lovers of Troma movies will thrill to this one! Read the other reviews for details. I'm just going to tell you that this is NOT A DATE MOVIE.
Naturally, I loved it!"
PSYCHOTRONIC and TOUCHING !!
Tom Goryssimo | Skies above, Heaven FR | 09/23/2004

"Allright, that movie is insane,violent and extremly shocking. Now that being said, i also want to point the fact that it's way more than that. It's also a sincere tribute to real people : so called ugly people , poor people, lonely people and hard working people. It's like a cross between the crazyest of TROMA and a genuine social commentary. Check this movie out and it will disgust you, it will make you laugh but on top of it all, it will make you think."
A Demented Masterpiece

"A homage to the workingman disguised as an exercise in sickness and depravity. Filled with biting humor and priceless genuine characters. I've seen my share of no budget gross out flicks and they all sucked. Bride of Frank is proof that a talented person can produce something riveting with a camera, a few locations, and a troupe of 'common people'. Although technically very rough, the movie is more creatively photographed than a lot of other higher-budgeted fare. There are other flaws, but not worth mentioning. This is a must-see.
Bride Of Frank

"The Story: The tale of one man's search for love and his trials and tribulations along the way, kind of.Frank is a bum. He gets taken in by trucking business workers who adopt him like some strange pet. They give him a job, a cot in the back, and even throw him a birthday party with a cake in the shape of two large breast. Oh, did I mention, Frank LOVES breasts?The guys put an ad in the paper for him in hopes of finding him the perfect bride. What follows are several hilarious scenes of violence and depravity. And when Frank says something he means it. He tells one guy he's going to rip off his head and shit down his neck, and he does, in a scene so repulsively side-splitting that you won't know whether to puke or dab your tears of laughter with a hankie.Bride of Frank is one of those extremely rare movies that can simultaneously offend you drastically while making you laugh uncontrollably. In the first two minutes alone, Frank picks up a young girl (played, incidentally, by the director's niece), beats her to death with a stick, and runs her head over with a truck.(...).Don Balde picked his star when he met him on the street a couple years before the film. I don't know who this guy is, or where he came from, but he's an ugly sumbitch and is nearly unintelligible: all his dialogue is sub-titled.Shot in and around Newark, NJ, Bride of Frank is one of the most offensive, repulsive, violent, sexist, and straight up hilarious movies you're ever likely to see. Don Balde has said that he set out to make a movie which would offend everyone. He succeeds spectacularly. Bride of Frank is the quintessential "so-bad-it's-good" movie.If you're looking to break up with your girl friend for any reason and want to get the job done right, take the time it will take to hunt this movie down and pop it into the VCR instead of the latest Gwyneth Paltrow drama-fest and have her watch it with you. Rest assured, you'll be single again long before final fade out."
