Saving Silverman (2001)

Director: Dennis Dugan

Writers: Hank Nelken, Greg DePaul

Composer: Michael Simpson

Starring: Steve Zahn, Jack Black, Jason Biggs, Amanda Peet, Amanda Detmer, R. Lee Ermey, Neil Diamond

More info: IMDb

Tagline: They swore nothing could come between them. Then she came along.

Plot: A pair of buddies conspire to save their best friend from marrying the wrong woman.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Probably not, but I wouldn't be opposed to it.

I'm probably being a little generous by giving this a 7 but despite a lot of the silly, base gags, I laughed quite a bit.  Normally I don't care for such stupid characters but some of the shit they do and say was really, really funny.  It's a well-cast picture, too.  And holy shit does R. Lee Ermey steal every.single.scene.he's.in.  Hilarious.  The Columbia DVD I've got has a few extras including a director's commentary, 4 minutes of outtakes (which aren't all that funny) and five trailers.  Considering how popular this movie is I'm surprised there isn't a loaded special edition available or even a Blu-ray.
