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
In the theatrical trailer a pair of blue briefs were digitally painted onto Steve Zahn in one scene because the MPAA said the scene was too revealing for general audiences. See more »
The film is set in Seattle, Washington, but filmed in British Columbia, Canada. Not a problem in itself, except that the Lions Gate bridge in Vancouver is plainly visible as our heroes jump off the pier. See more »
I don't want your shitty old house or your dead grandmother.
I'll throw J.D. in. He doesn't look like much but girls call him the human power tool.

Bitch: a malicious, spiteful, or coarse woman. Sound familiar? Whatever the explanation or situation, it is an art form many women have mastered, executed and blamed you for at some point during your life. So why not make a film about it?
Wayne (Zahn), JD (Black) and Darren (Biggs) have been best friends since the fifth grade, but when Darren starts dating the beautiful Judith (Amanda Peet) their friendship begins to crumble - as well as their Neil Diamond tribute band - as Darren becomes pussy-whipped by the evil bitch from hell!
Believing Judith to be a greater enemy than Darth Vader, Wayne and JD kidnap the bitch and fake her death, hoping that Darren - who by now is a sorry exuse for a man - will move on and rekindle his interest in Sandy (Amanda Detmer), Darren's lost love from high school who has returned to town to take her vows as a nun!
Saving Silverman is an enjoyable funny movie, brought to us by the director of Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore.
My rating: 7/10
