Quotes

Betty Shin: Who goes? Jeffrey's fucked.
Ben McGewen: One of us.
Jake Nealson: I'll go. I know the explosives.
Betty Shin: Guess again. You're too heavy. Jeffrey only had that cord set for 350 pounds.
Jake Nealson: Well, you go, then.
Betty Shin: Someone's got to track the alarms. I stay with my laptop, pal.
Scott: I can do it.
Ben McGewen: No offense, but when this makes the books as the most fucked-up bank job in history for all the mistakes that I did make, I don't want to be credited with sending the Chow-Wang food guy in to blow the safe.

Best direct to video movie
23 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This most be the best direct to video movie in a long time. I bought this movie in May when it was released on dvd in Norway. I just watched it again a couple days ago, and I will say that Star Raving Mad is good. Is not great, but it's better than most of crap the you see in your local theater. This is the best Seann W. Scott film since Road Trip and the first American Pie. All his other movies he just played a different version of Stifler. Mostly a more stupid one. But this he have finally shaked of Stifler. Scott was Ben McGewen in this movie. He was cool and smart and very good written. Didn't resemblance Stifler at all. In all his other movie, you are thinking about Stifler when you see Scott. But not this time. He finally did it. If you want to see Scott grow as an actor, don't rent American Wedding or Bulletproof Monk. Rent this. Or do like me and buy it.

For the rest of the movie, you got a good plot. You have seen it before, but not in this way. Scott is joined by a great cast of characters. His side-kick, the uncool Rikki (played by the funny Timm Sharp from Undeclared), a superstitious safe cracker, Jeffrey (Patrick Breen), a demolition expert (John B. Crye), that work best high, and the only person the really know what she doing, and keeps the group together, the computer expert, Betty (Suzy Nakamura). You also got to FBI agents played by Dave Foley and Kavana Smith, a ex-girlfriend (Monet Mazur), Adam Arkin as a night club owner, and Lou Diamond Phillips as the bad guy Gregory. In a pretty stereo-typical role. But with a cool hair cut.

SRM is funny and is really good written, but the end feel a little flat. You got a stand off with two FBI agents and bunch of bad guys, and you don't get a shoot out. That's disappointing. But over all a good movie.

I gave it 7 because I think it could be a lot better, and it could have a cool stand off in the end. But still very good and funny.
