Finally something refreshing.
In the past David Spade has not had the best movies such as Joe Dirt. I did not go into this one knowing what too expect. Sure the trailer looked really good but often the trailer can have the best bits in it ie: ms congeniality.

But thankfully this movie was much different. Not only was this funny but it was very funny. It was infact the funniest movie i have seen for a long time. It is refreshing not having borrowed plot ideas from other movies.

The sound track was actually quite good with songs such as flagpole sitter, i wanna be bad (a particularly funny moment in the movie) and some others which are good songs.

I loved everything about this movie, the sentiment was just the right amount, the actors played their parts really well and the jokes were spot on. I especially loved the two cork moments (anyone who has seen this movie will understand what i mean.)

The actors were cast really well in their parts. Overall i would give this movie an 8 out of 10. While this movie is not perfect it is by far david spades best work to date. If you have to see one comedy this year, make it this one you will not regret it.
