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.
