Two dim-witted former high school buddys and Neil Diamond fanactics, Wayne and J.D., plot to keep their friend Darren from marrying the wrong woman, a domineering and spiteful psychologist named Judith by kidnapping her and trying to set Darren up with his old high school girlfriend Sandy who plans to become a nun.Written by
Cast members Jack Black and Amanda Peet have both played characters who live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in Bruce Willis movies in which Willis played a hitman/killer-for-hire. Black appeared in "The Jackal" (1997) and Peet appeared in "The Whole Nine Yards" (2000), as well as its sequel, "The Whole Ten Yards" (2004), although the sequel did not take place in Montreal.

In the theatrical version, during the kickboxing flashback, Judith's old boyfriend is killed by a pretty normal-looking kick to the head. In the R-rated version, there is a longer close-up scene of his neck being snapped clean around from the kick, so his dying from the attack makes considerably more sense. See more »
"Saving Silverman" is a comedy that should perfectly work for people that enjoy extreme black humor.
Steve Zahn and Jack Black steal the show in my opinion as their performances are diverse through the movie. Jason Biggs is funny in his very own style, and the perfect, gorgeous, sexy Amanda Peet delivers a credible performance as the possessive and extremely jealous girlfriend. I have to say that she's absolutely, positively hot in the whole movie! What a woman.
R. Lee Ermey delivers a whacked funny performance as Coach Carter. The man rocks.
The situations are fun. The highlights in my opinion: -Silverman gets "electro shocks" from a devise whenever he mentions the name of his ex-fiancée. -Nick Diamond singing in the wedding! stuff for legend. -Coach Carter getting out of the moving van to later being crashed by a car. -The ending. Very weird! including a musical.
Anyways, there's nothing much to say about this movie but it will surely entertain audiences that love dark humor comedies. This isn't like "American Pie" by any means, "Saving Silverman" is a clever and fast paced comedy that will make you laugh hysterically.
