Looked kinda dumb, but surprisingly, it was really funny. Jack Black is great.

Yawn! I have rarely been this bored sitting in a theatre. Uninspired drooling comedy.

1 out of 5.

It is not great, but I enjoyed it. Very light and amusing fun. Jack Black elevates it above average, he's a blast, as always. I also liked the surprise appearance by Kevin Kline at the end, hehe. Enjoyable flick, but I doubt I will see it again.

It was amusing enough, Jack Black saves the movie where Colin almost kills it...

I love this film. Intelligent and stupid at the same time.

One of my favorite comedies ever. Every scene cracks me up, the characters fit together so well!

I thought it looked dumb, but it was actually really good. My favorite Jack Black performance.

An incredibly witty and smart teen comedy that never really got the attention it deserved. I enjoyed it a lot.

Surprisingly smart comedy, it never takes itself too seriously or degrades itself with toilet humour. A simple story, elevated by great one-liners and memorable characters, and quite the cast of comedic actors - John Lithgow, Catherine O'Hara, Chevy Chase, Lily Tomlin, Harold Ramis, Kevin Kline! Colin Hanks has great comedic timing and doesn't feel out of place amongst all the veterans, but it's Jack Black who steals the show. The film is simply hilarious whenever he's on screen. Definitely a silly teen comedy, but it never aspires to be anything more. Great fun.

My favorite Jack Black movie along with School Of Rock. Colin Hanks was really really good along with the amazing Catherine O'Hara.

I'm watching this on Comedy Central. It's actually pretty witty, more than I had remembered when I saw it the first time.
