Trivia

Originally in the singing penis scene, Michael C. Maronna's own naked penis was used with a CGI mouth added in. After being screened for the MPAA, however, the filmmakers were told to put a sock on it (literally). See more »

Goofs

When Ethan is video taping Angela and Dave next to the pool, he says his line next to the camera. When he is showing the video tape to Sam and Jeff, you can hear Angela's and Dave's voices clear from far away but you never hear Ethan's line. See more »

Whats wrong with you people?!
21 May 2003 | by jayfrilSee all my reviews

Worst movie of the year? Ok...the name is SLACKERS! Not Schindlers List Part 2. Why do you people try to pull so much meaning out of these stoner flicks? What are you thinking when you rent these movies? That you'll find a diamond in the rough? A Spielbergian classic?!? I like stupid humor. Sue me. I can laugh dumb nonsense. I've shown this to a ton of people and they all found humor in it. Cool Ethan is quite possibly the craziest character ever written and what his face from Rushmore pulls it off perfectly. Plus whats his face from that Stan video is PIMP in this movie. Seriously...take notes from STAN, eminems greatest fan.

My advice to you critics that downplay a stupid script in the first place is to stop watching comedy's. Stop now while you're ahead. Thank you and good day.
