Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During Blue's Funeral the the navy emblem on the wreath is designated for Naval Officers. The picture of Blue showed him as an Enlisted meaning he should of had a navy emblem not for officers. The coffin should also have had an American flag draped over it.See more »

#1 comedy of all time, 15 April 2005
Author: Stew from United States

This is the ultimately guy comedy of all time. I'll be quoting this movie until i'm 80 years old. The plot is original and hilarious and you can watch it from front to back 10 times in a row and still laugh every time. I'm a huge Will Ferrell fan and he doesn't disappoint. As Frank "the tank" he manages to be one of the funniest characters in movie history. This is a movie that most guys can relate to. If you've ever wanted to get back to the days of partying and girls, yet are stuck in the boredom of everyday life, then this movie will have you rolling around. Hecks, i'm even contemplating starting up my own fraternity. I can only hope that there will be a sequel to this one. I'll be the first in line to see it when it opens.
