Trivia

The loud motorcycles while Andy's on the phone at the gas station were completely unintentional. Blake Merriman (Andy) improvised and it became a comical bit that made the final cut. See more »

Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.
6 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm 39, happily married, three kids, all between 5-10 years old. I watched the sneak preview on a Saturday night sitting in my pj's and laughed out loud probably twenty times. To the point my wife actually watched a little. She watched up to the point where Nickie said he wanted to dunk the girl's head in the toilet, she left at that point.

I think you have to step back and watch the whole thing without thinking about Superbad or the other high school comedy movies that come out because this is a different thing, this is an old school film not a new school movie. Something really special here, and I know because I keep saying "alright, I gotta go inside and get ****ed up real quick, then I'll drive you wherever you want..." It's a smart-alec comedy, which I like.
