Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.
In Venice Beach, naive Midwesterner JB bonds with local slacker KG and they form the rock band Tenacious D. Setting out to become the world's greatest band is no easy feat, so they set out to steal what could be the answer to their prayers -- a magical guitar pick housed in a rock-and-roll museum some 300 miles away.
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.

Bitch: a malicious, spiteful, or coarse woman. Sound familiar? Whatever the explanation or situation, it is an art form many women have mastered, executed and blamed you for at some point during your life. So why not make a film about it?
Wayne (Zahn), JD (Black) and Darren (Biggs) have been best friends since the fifth grade, but when Darren starts dating the beautiful Judith (Amanda Peet) their friendship begins to crumble - as well as their Neil Diamond tribute band - as Darren becomes pussy-whipped by the evil bitch from hell!
Believing Judith to be a greater enemy than Darth Vader, Wayne and JD kidnap the bitch and fake her death, hoping that Darren - who by now is a sorry exuse for a man - will move on and rekindle his interest in Sandy (Amanda Detmer), Darren's lost love from high school who has returned to town to take her vows as a nun!
Saving Silverman is an enjoyable funny movie, brought to us by the director of Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore.
My rating: 7/10
