Storyline

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up. In small-town, hard-scrabble New Hampshire, foul-mouthed all-talk slacker John "Rugged" Rudgate fancies himself a criminal. When a local plumber stares him down at a pub, Rugged vows revenge, pouring brake fluid in the man's water supply. When the man dies from unrelated causes, Rugged and his side-kick, the even dimmer Jeff, try to cover up what they think is murder. One bad decision begets another. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

good s--t
9 July 2006 | by geoff_laffSee all my reviews

This movie was totally unique and I agree with the guy who said Paul Schneider is awesome. He played some kind of autistic dumb dude in this totally believable and hilarious way. I wish I got to see it again and will definitely keep my eyes out for it. Also really dug Juda Friedlander who has this obscene scene that I really want to watch again. He plays this guy who has to talk about all the people who might want to get back at him for nasty stuff he did. Always nice to see Michael Rapoport, who was playing a part different from stuff I've seen him in. There was a new face I liked too. don't remember his name but he was the bad-ss on the riding mower. This is a funny movie and if you are sick of the same old puke from ferrell and sandler you will dig it. Oh, and Zooey Deschanel is a fox.
