Quotes

J.D.: Hey Sandy! It's me, JD, I went to high school with you, remember?
Sandy: Um, no I don't think I recall...
J.D.: Yeah, c'mon. Remember? I went to prom with a tux painted on my naked body?
Sandy: Um...
J.D.: Yeah! And then I spilled punch on myself and everyone could see my dong?
Sandy: No, JD, I really...
J.D.: Oh yeah! We had chemistry together and I tried to light a fart with the Bunsen burner and I ended up singeing my balls... still can't grow hair on my left nut. Sucks.

Unbelievable and Stupid but Funny
30 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is incredibly unbelievable and incredibly stupid, but dont let that hold you back from really enjoying it. Jack Black and R. Lee Ermey are hilarious, as always. The plot is worthless and I would have been satisfied with just Black, Zahn, and Ermey on screen the whole time. Easily worth one good viewing, in the right mood, preferably intoxicated. An underrated triple-buddy gem.
