Quotes

David Spade: But here's the upside of 5th grade. Brad Pitt, for one year, went to my school. He was a lady killer back then. He was a good looking kid. Even back then, you could tell he was a cutie because I remember when I got my class picture and brought it home. I was staying with my grandma so she was checking it out. Oh my God Davie, you have to be the cutest boy in the whole God darn... Oh my God I'd fuck that kid. Hook me up. Take care of me I used to take care of you. Do something for me, that kid ...

Not the Spade in the movies.
16 May 2006 | by csmoviemanSee all my reviews

I was a bit disappointed with this stand-up routine. Where I expected an hilarious sarcastic commentary on life from David Spade, what I actually got was a nearly hour-long disjointed and painfully unfunny at times TV special. Some of the segments were just odd. I found the segment about Brad Pitt to just be gross and unfunny. The whole routine felt like lowbrow, college beginner material. You'll sit through five routines of boredom for one routine of hilarity in this snooze-fest. However, I must give him credit for his few good routines, because they were hilarious. If only he could have maintained it through the whole performance.

Stick to his movies. Forget the stand-up.
