Disney has finally jumped on the crude and offensive humor bandwagon, with a simplistic storyline involving the journey of Jimmy (Gyllenhaal), a naive guy born with an immune system deficiency that requires him to live in a germ-free environment, as he races across the country to stop his sweetheart (Shelton) from marrying a jerk. Jimmy constructs a mobile bubble and hits the road. Along the way, the alleged jokes manage to offend Christians, Hindus, Jews, Republicans, Latinos, Asians and circus freaks while still wallowing in boner humor. That'd be almost forgivable if the "humor" was actually funny.

Bubble Boy
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

The movie Bubble Boy was alright. It was funny, although not my kind of movie. Bubble Boy stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Swoosie Kurts. I probably wouldn't have watched this movie if Jake Gyllenhaal wansn't in it. I'm not really familiar with any of the other actors. Bubble Boy is about a guy who has a health issue so he has to live in a germ-free environment. He goes on a journey to stop the love of his life from getting married. To do so, he travels in a bubble.
