Hey, the century just started, I'll say it's the funniest movie of the century because, so far, it is.
I haven't laughed so hard since 1995's The Nutty Professor.
Jack Black is paired up with the only other person I've seen with the same incredible comic timing that he has, in Steve Zahn. Zahn steals the show in this movie, with everything he does being absolutely hilarious. The coon scene near the beginning was great, and I liked how his character ended up in the end.
Also, R. Lee Ermey was a nice surprise. He's done comic roles before, but this was beyond anything he's ever done, his only better performance being in Full Metal Jacket.
By the way, Neil Diamond is the man!
This movie is great. Go see it... NOW!
