Seventeen year old slacker Anton Tobias wakes up one Halloween morning to discover that both of his parents have been turned into two headless Halloween decorations. After speaking to his equally irresponsible friends, Mick and Pnub, he discovers that his right hand has a blood-thirsty mind of its own and is hell-bent on wreaking havoc whether he likes it or not.Written by
The dish soap that Anton (Devon Sawa) squirts into his mouth after attempting to smoke Nutmeg and Oregano is real dish soap. Sawa came up with the gag on the spot. See more »
Both hands are visible. After Curtis and Tiffany are found in the car, Anton places his right hand on Mick's shoulder, then his left hand as he's walking away. See more »
[Anton is about to chop off his 'evil' right hand]
Wait a minute. If you chop off your right hand, how are you going to chop the other one off?
Oh no, man, the lefty's a keeper. I mean, I guess it wasn't idle enough.
Oh yeah, I mean, I hit the remote with it, light up with it, relieve a little tension. No, this is the answer.

For reasons unknown, I couldn't see Idle Hands when it was released into theatres last year in 1999. I didn't get a chance to see it until it came out on tape in August later of that year. The plot centers around Anton Tobias(Devon Sawa), he's 17, he hasn't been to school in 6 months, he's in love with Molly(Jessica Alba) a girl who has lived across the street from him for lord knows how long, and he smokes pot with his friends Mick(Seth Green) and Pnub(Elden Henson). Anyway, Anton wakes up one day to find that his parents have disappeared, (although it takes him about two days to realize this). This goes to show you should stop smoking pot all the time. It isn't long before Anton discovers his horribly mutilated parents and that his right hand has been possessed by Satan. His hand soon kills his best friends Mick and Pnub. With the help of a priestess Debi(Vivica A. Fox) and a local headbanger (Jack Noseworthy) Anton comes up with a few odd ways of keeping his hand occupied from its homicidal tendencies such as listening to heavy metal and needle point.
Let me just say that this movie is hilarious. I should also say that this movie is also one of the grossest and goriest movies I've ever seen. There are quite a few hilarious moments as well as a few shocking ones.
Vivica A. Fox's name says it all and Jessica Alba isn't bad to look at either.
