While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
Two dim-witted former high school buddys and Neil Diamond fanactics, Wayne and J.D., plot to keep their friend Darren from marrying the wrong woman, a domineering and spiteful psychologist named Judith by kidnapping her and trying to set Darren up with his old high school girlfriend Sandy who plans to become a nun. Written by
In one scene, Silverman (Jason Biggs) says to a retirement home resident, "Pull your pants up, or no more 'Matlock'." "Matlock" was produced by the Fred Silverman Company. See more »
When Sandy agrees to have dinner with Darren, they go to The Cannery Seafood House. The scene in which Sandy throws Darren into the water was shot just outside the restaurant. Then, after Sandy jumps in to save Darren, they both walk up on the east end of Jericho Beach, near Jericho Tennis Club. The actual distance between the restaurant and Jericho Beach is approximately 8 miles! See more »
Funniest movie since Dangerfield's 'Back to School'!
Reading the other review, I just had to post the opposing viewpoint. I am a 58-yr-old well-educated woman, so go figure...I just HOWLED at this movie, I had tears running down my face. Haven't laughed this much and so unexpectedly since Rodney Dangerfield's antics in 'Back to School'. The sight gags were dead on, the whole premise of the loser worshippers of N. Diamond was hysterical and milked to perfection, and the send-up of misogyny was perfectly done. Actually, these three hapless fools were just perfectly pathetic and loveable in their own ways. The acting was wonderful....Amanda Peet was wickedly funny, and all three male stars were equally crass and deliciously low-down. Jack Black as usual was unnervingly disgusting and real. Neal Diamond was a wonderful parody of himself, without being condescending...he fit the spirit of the movie to a 'T'. The ending was great, reminiscent of the 'feel good' ending of 'Back to School'. Whenever I feel blue, I watch this movie and just can't help laughing. Maybe it just wasn't British humor (referring to the previous review), but this is FUNNY stuff.
