Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous. After a visit from his estranged father, circumstances force Bubby into the waiting world, a place which is just as unusual to him as he is to the world.

Did You Know?
The entire movie was shot in sequence. This made it easier for Bubby to mimic previous character's dialogue since he had a chance to hear it preformed first.

They be beautiful… like mom.
You don't think they're too big?
They make perfection.
Crazy, insane, black, funny, terrifying, weird, SUPERB.
This film changed my life. No, really. It was a Friday night, and the
parents were away. I was on my own in front of the television, and Channel
(UK + Irish viewers will know of it) was showing Bad Boy Bubby as part of
some cult film season. Well, to cut a long story short, I was glued to the
screen for the duration of the film (I drooled and stared at it during the
commercial breaks) and when it was over, I realised that the dinner was
entirely burnt. Not a particularly relevant story, you may think, but note
that the television was IN THE KITCHEN, mere feet from the oven. That's
good this film is. It features possibly the greatest crazy monologue ever
committed to celluloid (the pub/microphone scene), two of the most
disturbing murders in any movie I've seen (and I've seen thousands), one
the most unsettling relationships I've seen, and an unbelievable central
performance. This film is darker than dark, and stranger than Eraserhead.
Just as Bubby is on his own throughout the film, so is the viewer. Alone,
confused and disturbed beyond words.
And I've never thought of the Salvation Army in the same way
