Goofs

Wayne claims that he was born at the "Hot August Night" concert. But the concert that is shown is not that concert. Hot August Night was recorded in 1972, and the concert that is shown is "Love at the Greek" recorded in 1976. (Also a mistake in Directors commentary, Dennis Dugan admits that the concert is not Hot August Night, but claims the concert that is shown takes place in 1974). 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.
