Wow
17 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not gonna lie, this is probably one of the funniest movies I have ever scene. To really get something out of the Peanut Butter Solution, you have to watch it in the right mindset. You cannot watch this movie seriously, hoping to see a great film; you have to watch it knowing that it is so bad and so goofy in order to really enjoy it. I watched this movie when I was really little all the time and somehow the title stuck with me. I decided to rent it and watch it again recently. It was honestly the funniest thing I have ever scene. I can't even count all of the hysterical scenes that are in this movie; ranging from Connies pubic hair hanging out from his pant leg like a horses main as he skips along the crosswalk to the inspirational speech Michael gives in school, "I want to be educated. Not just hairy." If you have no idea what I'm talking about you will just have to get this movie and check it out in the right mindset. The funniest thing I have ever seen.
