I must say, I really enjoyed "Orange County." It's not a truly important cinematic masterpiece, but what were you expecting--"Gone With the Wind"? This movie is a lot of fun and I never get sick of it. Jack Black plays the brother absolutely wonderfully. He cracked me up about 90 times throughout the movie.
Overall, a very enjoyable, fun movie. Watch it if you want to kill some time.
