Come on now yaaahaaa!
24 May 2004 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Jack Black and Steve Zahn..you gotta love them.

This film is just about as stupid as you could possible imagine. The story line is puerile in the extreme. The characterisation is non-existent. The direction lacks any sense of control. And yet....and yet this is the funniest film i have seen since There's Something About Mary.

Jack Black and Steve Zahn are two of the best comedic actors in the business today. It seems to me that, precisely because of Dugan's lack of control, these two guys gave free rein to all of their improvisational instincts and they save the film from being a complete mess. They are sensational. Jack Black's constant mimicing of Neil Diamond's habit of singing "come on now yaaahaaa" when he does Holly Holy is insidious and sticks in your head long after the film has finished.

Amanda Peet and Amanda Detmer are sex on legs here. Their parts are badly written but who cares when they look this good! Even Neil Diamond shows he is a trouper by showing up for a cameo in a film that, essentially, pokes gentle fun at how uncool his stage persona is perceived to be.

This is just great ...9/10
