A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
In L.A., Maurice and Dave sell steaks - high-end cuts of beef. They've hit a patch of no sales, and they're facing being fired. Maurice needs money to enroll in his final semester of acupuncture school, and the recently-separated Dave needs money for his daughter's birthday gift. Their final client card: a beautiful woman opens the door, and she's attracted to Maurice, but a desperate call from a suicidal friend interrupts her signing the contract. Still hoping to close the sale, Maurice and Dave offer to drive her to the friend's house, and there, troubles multiply. Facing guns, hitmen, and women's secrets, a sale is the farthest thing from their minds. Are they about to be grilled? Written by
Originally set for theatrical release in 2005, the film was pushed back both domestically and internationally secondary to poor test screenings. Ultimately the film was release direct-to-DVD in the domestic market under a new title. See more »
Maurice and Dave stop and get out of the car, a truck drives by, knocking the left side-mirror off. When they get in the car again and drive off, the side mirror is on the left side. When they stop later on, the side mirror is gone. See more »
That is because I just couldn't make up my mind if this movie was good or bad. It had a lot of classic humor. The problem was that while watching a movie which stars two of the biggest sitcom actors / comedians you expect BIG laughs. It doesn't have BIG laughs. It has "Hmm that's funny" laughs.
I reserve this film for the "if you have seen all the big hits" and just want something different, then this is for you.
It's a decent flick and I will leave it at that.
Enjoy the show.
