A fun comedy watch but one that'll likely feel forgettable after time
Simple fun movie. Watch it with some friends and laugh.
Very enjoyable and warm film that has a great Jack Black performance. Hanks, Lithgow, and O’Hara are all perfectly cast.
Dream team comedian cast that played their hugely eccentric characters effortlessly. Funny, touching and good music.
Forgettable as a whole, but Jack Black is always hilarious.
Amusing enough watch with Colin Hanks and Jack Black but doesn't leave many indelible memories
Lame humor and pretty boring story. Aged poorly and just so average it’s easy to forget
It's pretty funny and surprisingly heartwarming, but it reeks of the early 2000's(not that there's anything wrong with that)
Has its moments but otherwise a forgettable college comedy
A fun little early life crisis romp with some surprising cameos. Normal kid surrounded by crazies makes for laughs. Jack Black cracks me up.
