Sexy, seductive, deliciously diabolical, hilarious, and witty film
17 November 2005 | by (Fairfax, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, SAVING SILVERMAN is a sexy, seductive, deliciously diabolical, hilarious, and witty film. Even though I thought that Judith (Amanda Peet) was a beautiful lady, she was a b****! I laughed really hard when Wayne (Steve Zahn) gave Judith a shock in her buttocks. Another part I laughed at was when Wayne gave Darren (Jason Biggs) all those shocks. Those parts were laugh-out-loud funny! When I first saw SAVING SILVERMAN, I was with a friend of mine, and all throughout the movie, my friend and I were rolling. In conclusion, I highly recommend this smash hit to all you Jason Biggs, Steve Zahn, Jack Black, or Amanda Peet fans who have not seen it.
