Midnight Madness opener Dicks: The Musical gets a NSFW trailer

Fresh off being announced as TIFF’s opening night Midnight Madness movie comes the premiere of the trailer for Dicks: The Musical. Being billed as A24’s first movie musical, the movie stars Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp, along with Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, Megan Thee Stallion and SNL’s Bowen Yang as God himself. Originally titled F*cking Identical Twins, the film seems to be a subversive, very R-rated twist on The Parent Trap

Here’s the official synopsis:

Two self-obsessed businessmen (writers Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp) discover they’re long-lost identical twins and come together to plot the reunion of their eccentric divorced parents in this riotously funny and depraved musical from comedy icon Larry Charles (Seinfeld, Borat) also starring Megan Thee Stallion, Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and Bowen Yang as God.

Jackson and Sharp also wrote Dicks: The Musical, which is directed by Larry Charles, director of Borat, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm and much more. Based on the trailer, it’s safe to say this has more in common with Charles’ comedies than The Greatest Showman, even if the film, ironically, is produced by the same people involved with that very family-friendly musical. It looks pretty funny, with some wacky touches, such as a pair of stop-motion creatures billed as “The Sewer Boys,” which, as Nathan Lane explains in the trailer, “are not disgusting; they’re gay culture!” 

Here’s the thing – this movie will no doubt play like gangbusters as Midnight Madness. If you’ve never attended one of their screenings, you’re missing out, as the audiences there are crazy – but in the best way. As Nicolas Cage once told me during an interview, “they’re my people.” Whether or not Dicks: The Musical will crossover to a more mainstream audience remains to be seen, but it looks like, at the very least, A24 had a cult movie on their hands.
