Jack Black & Steve Zahn are totally hilarious
5 August 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Dennis Dugan the director of great comedies such as Problem Child, Happy Gilmore, Beverly Hills Ninja, Big Daddy & National Security brings to us "Saving Silverman" which is a lot better than your average teen comedies. First of all the movie has 4 top stars, Jason Biggs, Jack Black, Steve Zahn & Amanda Peet who are all hilarous in their own way, Black & Zahn do stand out the most they are ridiculously funny. I've seen this movie about 5 times and i never get sick of it. I don't really wanna go into details about the movie just to let everyone know that this movie is better than your average comedy. In Australia & some other countries this movie is known as " Evil Woman" so don't be confused about the different names. The story to this movie is a little weak but it still works because of the fact the humor is great through to the end. 8 / 10.
