How could David Lynch make such a bad film?

The acting isn't good, but that's a given - a style trademark of Lynch. It doesn't really feature any of his directional trademarks, though? It's just a straightforward, one-note, gross-out comedy with nothing to say for itself. Is it a satire on this kind of movie? I don't understand how you can go from Mulholland Drive to this in such a short time.
