Storyline

Zach and Ben have been best buddies since they were in grade school. They were those "two guys" that we all know, opposites, but still the same kid. Their friendship continued through High School. Zach continually got them in trouble due to his carefree existence, and Ben was oblivious to everything as he became smitten by the girl of his dreams. Just as Ben got the nerve to pursue her, she moved out of the neighborhood, leaving Ben devastated for many years to come. Twelve years later, Ben & Zach, now in their mid-20's, still close friends, but have drifted apart due to making different choices in life. Ben is overworked and doesn't spend time doing the things he loves. He buries himself day and night in his work at a law firm. The only thing outside of work Ben has focused on is his life-long crush on the girl he met years ago in high school. Zach, an easy-going guy who enjoys everything he does, happily spends his days taking care of the elderly at a nursing home. Zach's only ... Written by Paramount Home Entertainment

because CGI rodents biting people in the crotch is the height of hilarity, right?
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best part of having a girlfriend is, of course, the copious amounts of sex. On the flip-side, the worst part of having a steady girlfriend is having to sit through many MANY crappy movies, this brings me to the topic at hand "Without A Paddle 2" which has nothing at all to do with the first one (which ironically I also was conned into watching when it came out, different girl though, but I digress) This one revolves around a guy who meets a vegetarian animal-rights crusader while on the first day of high school, she gets expelled the second day before she can so his 'cool' homemade 'Meat is Murder' T-shirt (I guess the Che shirts were all sold out) Anyways years little his friend, who works in a nursing home, accepts the dying wish of an ancient old lady to find her grand-daughter, whom winds up being, yup you guessed it, little Mizz Feminist crusader. So he, his friend, and a snotty English guy with ulterior motives travel to her last known whereabouts deep in the rain-forests.

This film was atrocious, the joke aren't just easily telegraphed, they're also massively unfunny, the acting is sub-standard and I didn't give a toss about any of the characters involved in the least. Also Jerry Rice was a great football player, and as an actor he was a great football player. That was seriously painful to watch. The only good thing that came from this film is the sex I got for being forced to deal with this major eye sore of a 'movie'. It's all about reparations people.

My Grade: F

DVD Extras: A 10 minute Making-of; 'Furious Nuts' featurette which is 7 minutes about the CGI-squirrels; 'Treehouse Tales' three minutes about the treehouse sets; a gag reel; 4 very short deleted scenes; and Tralers for "Van Wilder: Freshman year", "American Teen", "Stoned Age", " 'Kenny Vs. Spenny' Volume 1, 'TV Funhouse Uncensored'
