Quotes

Stone Fury: The experience of being in my first big Hollywood scene was an experience. I liked it, I thought it was cool. Ummmmm, being thrown in the manure is a different story you know. But there again to make it more real. Boom. You gotta take the shit before you really experience the bullshit or whatever. If you know what I am saying.

I have not laughed this hard since I first saw "Airplane".
19 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not care about the arguments about whether this movie is authentic or not. It is freaking funny.

It was by "accident" that I even saw this movie. It was a late night, and my girlfriend and I were snuggled up on the couch and channel surfing. I had never heard anything about this film before I stumbled upon it that night on Comedy Central.

It has been a long, long time since I have laughed so hard. I won't spoil it by giving details, but the scene with the baseball bats almost killed me. I was laughing hard, and it kept getting FUNNIER! I could not stop laughing, and I was in pain! My girlfriend had to turn off the TV for a couple of minutes so I could regain my composure.

If you have the chance to see this film, ignore all that you might have read about it being staged. It might be a fake, it might not be. But if you suspend all disbelief as you watch it, you will not be disappointed.

THIS MOVIE NEEDS TO BE RELEASED ON DVD!
