Goofs

When Darren is thrown off the pier by Sandy, as it cuts to him stating he can't swim with his head above water, you can see a pair of feet going under the water. Presumably the stuntman's, who is just holding his breath and underwater. See more »

pretty bad but a lot of fun
29 January 2002 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Granted, Saving Silverman is not good movie. Jason Biggs is only funny as the American Pie guy, and even that act got old by the sequel. But Steven Zahn and Jack Black are two very funny individuals. A Neil Diamond cover band called "Diamonds in the Rough." I could laugh about that for days. And the crazy, gay coach. I don't see how anyone with a sense of humor could walk out of this movie feeling bad.
