Brendan and Gavin are lifelong friends who feel comfortable with fame and international adoration. Even though they haven't achieved it yet. They're just like any other small town guys - they enjoy playing in a band, reviewing book reviews and busting mad sickness whenever they can. They also have brand new jobs in advertising. Unfortunately their world falls apart after they lose their jobs, a day before their ten-year school reunion - a day they've dreamt about for, well, ten years. Written by Anon

Tanit Pheonix the only saving grace.
2 October 2005 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

If your not familiar with the Crazy Monkey crowd..... Don't watch! Unlike the Jackass movie, this one does not include various stunts that they perform in extreme situations (wink, wink). It's just about a couple of guy's that are trying to become famous very quickly.

It has one or two moments of hilarity followed by ..... ummmm nothing much. The acting is painful (it's meant to be) the story almost non existent ( it's also meant to be).

Gavin and Brandon are to say the least stupid (there supposed to be)... If your'e stoned then you'll love it!!! Tanit Pheonix is very hot.... too darn hot I tell you and I personally loved the cop who acts like Horatio Caine from CSI Miami with his sunglasses. Do not pay good money to watch it, don't rent it on DVD,wait for it to come on TV and even then only watch if you accidentally flick through and it's on.
