From the producers of the smash-hit Dumb and Dumber comes Ringmaster, the feature film debut of the King of Confessional Television, Jerry Springer. Titled Ringmaster because that's the role Springer plays on his circus of a TV show, the outrageous and hilarious storyline follows the progress of two very different but equally bizarre groups of social misfits who apply to reveal their sordid relationship secrets on the fictitious 'Jerry' TV show. The film's story begins with Connie and her promiscuous daughter Angel, who performs sexual favours for guests at the seedy motel where she works, as well as sleeping with her mothers husband behind her back. Enraged, Connie seduces her treacherous daughter's fiance before realising there's an even better way to get her revenge... appearing on the 'Jerry' show and tell all. Meanwhile, Starletta is a young woman with a very thorny problem - her two best friends, Vonda and Leshawnette, are getting down and dirty with her philandering boyfriend Desmond. In a whirlwind of accusations, excuses and lies, these squabbling misfits from the shallow end of the gene pool also get their sights on a showdown on the 'Jerry' show. Now the stage is set for the madness and mayhem that is an part of everyday life on the 'Jerry' show, as the film goes behind the scenes to observe the scandelous goings-on both at the TV studio and behind the doors of the hotel where the guests stay.
you thought the tv show was outrageous!!!

Well without the restrictions of tv to hold it back, this film is lewd, crude and quite amusing.
Sure it doesn't provide the bust a gut laughter of American Pie or Scary Movie part one, but it has it's moments for sure and it's not QUITE as controversial as the musical based around his real life show!
But you will need a broad sense of humour for this one and as for good taste, well that's lacking, but it at least raised a chuckle from me and my partner as we watched this bawd, lewd but fun movie.
