All-American white trash fun!
19 February 2009 | by (Levittown, Pa) – See all my reviews

If you like weird off the wall comedy and you want to find your inner beer-guzzling redneck, this is your kinda movie. A screener copy showed up here at work so I called up some friends, opened a case of Rolling Rock and we proceeded to laugh our asses off.

Sam Macarone is great as a bus driver who goes to work in a beer hat, leather jacket and tighty-whiteys. Dian Bachar (who played Choda Boy in Orgasmo) is the world's most unlikely leading man so he's maybe the best thing about the movie, except for Stella Keitel-whose just plain hot. Preston Lacy reminds me of Chris Farley, a really strange, drunk Chris Farley.

I don't agree with the first review at all, but I guess it means some people wont like this movie, but I think a lot of people will. We sure did.
