Pretty funny, but...
2 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...not nearly as funny as the book. Why? Mainly because they had to clean the language and nearly everything else up from the book or the film would have been rated X. Dan Jenkins writes hilarious books but they tend to have a lot of cussin' in them. His use of the English language has a decided Texas tint to it and it is flat-dab funny! I love Jenkin's writing style. He's written several funny books, probably the most popular of which is Semi-Tough, which was also made into a film. However, it, too, fell short of the book. But that's a different review. This film is still pretty dang funny, so by all means watch it. But be sure to pick up the book!
