Storyline

Cooper and Ed are brothers: Coop acts, in ads and soaps, spending his real energy chasing women for one-night stands. His younger brother Ed, an earnest young man, works in an ad agency. For the past year, since finding his girlfriend in bed with another man with a video camera running, Ed has been in a funk: he's carried a torch, his social life has tanked, and his work has suffered. Ed will be fired on Monday unless he can save a major account. It's his birthday weekend: he wants to work, but Cooper wants Ed to rediscover his sex life. Cooper works hard to help Ed score, but disaster piles on disaster. Can a decent guy save his job and get a life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quite surprised! Very funny after it gets going.
1 February 2006 | by (Atlanta, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should be judged for what it is and not what it isn't. This movie is just for fun nothing more. A little slow in the beginning but very funny once it gets up to speed. I'm not a big fan of crude movies like the American Pie series but this one I liked. That Chris Klein is my new best buddy. He is one naturally funny guy. I'll be on the lookout for any more work of his. I thought the photography was great. The acting was good. Directing was good. I don't have a clue what the budget was for this movie but from what I can see it was well financed. The uncensored "funniest video" clips are well placed throughout and are really funny even though I've seen most of them before. Grab a buddy and go see it!
