Review: 

I was totally caught off guard by the gay thing. Even though Wilbanks fucked up and told me about the gay thing, I had already forgotten about the gay thing, until it was already in the middle of the gay thing. Good thing, or I would have been more pissed than when Professor Sean messed up The Sixth Sense for me.

Jack Black is the Jerry Lewis for the new millenium. Maybe. OK, not at all - really, he is in a class by himself. There is no one I can even compare him to. He is just...um, I'm not sure what he is.

I have always thought that Steve Zahn was cute, ever since I saw the commercial for That Thing You Do! Of course, I never watched that piece of crap, but I do remember seeing the commercials for it. He reminds me of someone, but I can't remember who. Maybe the Dutch guy on crutches from the Thespian Convention? No, someone on the tip of my brain....heh, I can't remember.

Anyway, Amanda 'I like eyeliner' Peet is a total UberCunt. I cringed everytime she was on screen - but I guess that means her cunt-ness was effective. She kind of reminded me of Crazy Cyndi. Although I must admit, I wish I had the power to make men go down like that.

I was not impressed by the whole Neil Diamond ending. Lame, in a kind of Wayne's World 2 way. I expected the Judith/Wayne thing, but I did not expect to see Jack Black mugging down with the Gunnery Sergeant from Full Metal Jacket.

Crispin Glover! That's who he reminds me of!
