This film is definitely not for the faint of heart because it goes into some necrophiliac moments. A few people walked out on the film because of the material, but it was all in good fun. Although Jason Lee and Crispin Glover couldn't make it to the premier it was still an experience i will remember. This movie has it's really laugh out loud moments and also it's really stupid pen dropping scenes. But overall, i enjoyed it, this is a treat for Crispin glover fans because he does such a great job with his character that his lines really heighten the comedy. To conclude this comment, i just have to say this one is probably more of a rental. I'm giving it a 6.4 of ten. Only because i love all Jason Lee movies.
