Two out of work pranksters. Pull one prank too many when they get mixed up in the mob.

This movie will have you laughing out of your A$$!!!. The Jerky boys bring their weird sense of humor to new heights in this low budget movie. This movie isnt for everyone and its definitely not a family film. If your are bored on a Saturday afternoon go to the video store and rent this. You wont regret. I give this movie an 8 out 10 rating.
