    Darren Silverman (Jason Biggs), Wayne Lefessier (Steve Zahn) and J.D. McNugent (Jack Black) have been best friends since the fifth grade.

    Well, most of Biggs` movies are not supposed to cause the brain excessive activity, but this one is brain-dead. It`s hardly funny and the plot is stupid and dull.
    The video transfer is ok. There are no compression signs at all. Notice that despite what the box says, the disk contains only the widescreen version.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. While the surrounds are hardly used, the sound is ok for this kind of a movie.
    The menus are all animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the director and some (not funny at all) outtakes.
    Bottom line - forget it, not worth the 96 minutes runtime.
