Movie Reviews

The Funniest Thing I've Ever Seen
Jeffrey S. Sneider | Needham, MA, USA | 03/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recorded David Spade's 1998 HBO Special Take the Hit and VHS and nearly wore the tape down rewatching it over and over ith my friends. We wrote HBO petitioning them to release this on DVD, because our copy got so grainy and I recorded over his introduction with a little amateur home video. But believe me when I say, this is the funniest thing I've ever seen. I can recite it by heart. Spade's sarcastic delivery is perfect and the guy is excessively quotable. Highlights include the bits about Brad Pitt going to his school for one year, Spade's kickball skills, and why he likes the zoo so much. Buy this DVD! It will not disappoint. And David, if you're reading this, I need a job. Hook it up, bro."
It changed my life and made me the person I am today

""Take the Hit" is quite possibly the best stand-up comedy I have ever seen. I love Dane Cook and Chris Rock, but David Spade's "Take the Hit" is the best 60 minutes of comedy money can buy.
I'm afraid that the title of this review contains more truth than I would like to admit. About 7 years ago, I saw pieces of Spade's HBO special on an improv comedy TV show (the original routine was heavily edited), and I've been obsessed ever since. I don't know if I ever laughed so hard sitting alone in my living room. I downloaded the audio from the internet, and I've listened to it countless times. I listened to the audio with my friends (who also found it hilarious...of course), and our conversations became infused with David Spade quotations and allusions. There was only one problem: I could NEVER find any type of video copy of the stand-up routine anywhere. Problem solved."
One of the greatest stand-up shows ever

"I don't care if you dislike Spade's movies or his television shows, this concert is incredibly well written and performed. Great delivery and self-depricating humor. I have listened to this show about a hundred times and it is still fresh and great observational humor. Buy this, you will laugh, a lot."

"Very, very funny, witty and full of the great sarcasm we have grown to know and love from David Spade"
