Saving Silverman is a goofy and hilarious comedy about two friends (Jack Black and Steve Zahn) trying to prevent their best friend (Jason Biggs) from dating a woman (Amanda Peet) who they think is going to ruin him. Things get more complicated when Jason Biggs' character runs into his high school crush, who his friends think is better for him. Throw in some Neil Diamond, training to be a nun, electroshock therapy, and a crazy football coach who committed murder with a first down marker, and you have the makings of an eccentric comedy!
While the PG13 version of the movie is missing a lot in terms of vulgar and obscene scenes from the unrated edition, it still manages to bring you a lot of funny moments. If you've ever seen this movie on TV (like when Comedy Central shows it for months at a time), you'll find the DVD refreshing with scenes that don't make the TV censors cut.
The DVD includes the standards for extra: commentary and outtakes. However, the picture and audio have been remastered to give you a great viewing experience. The movie is packed with laughs and includes special guest Neil Diamond to really stir things up. Jack Black is at his finest in this movie, and the additions of Steve Zahn and Jason Biggs make this a sure winner in the laughs department.
If you're looking for a great comedy, look no further than this movie.
