Crazy Credits

The director would like to thank... GOD - For all that's come before, all that'll come after, and most importantly, for right now. JOEY - For giving me something personal to say. I love you poopie. (First one who laughs gets decked!) SCOTT - Master of the Impossible, ying to my yang, heart of my heart... He's my cherry pie. BEN - Outstanding. Outstanding, this guy. JASON LEE - For kicking it Reynold's style. DWIGHT - Hi Duh-Wight. JAY - My little Mewes. JON GORDON - Why, Why, Why?!? MOM & DAD - I know I've got a PG in me somewhere. JOHN PIERSON - Guru, Czar, friend. DAVE - For the prettiest pictures yet. At bargain basement prices, no less! BOB HAWK - For being there from the start, teaching us what makes a movie great, and always doing the dishes. HARVEY - Who, like a good parent, gives us money, offers endless moral support, and spanks us when we need spanking (okay... everything but the spanking part). MIKE ALLRED - For fulfilling this fanboy's dream. See you in the funny papers. THE CAST AND CREW - Who worked for nothing, yet gave everything. MATT SEITZ - For the one review that made a difference.
