This movie is okay. I wouldn't say it was great nor I will say it was bad. Only thing/person in it that was funny was of course Jack Black. It is average!

I originally was interested in this flick because of Amanda Peet. By the time I saw it I was a fan of Jack Black. My wife took one look at the back cover of this and thought I had made a mistake. Then we watched the film - and couldn't stop laughing. It is a silly flick but it doesn't take itself seriously and therefore works very well.
Hilarious and Edgier Rated R-Version!

"This movie was great to begin with, but they wanted to release a racier R-Rated version to compete with Road Trip and American Pie! They succeeded, and actually the extra R-rated footage makes total sense!Added R-rated scenes include; *Longer, racier romp scene with Zane Black and the Call-girls they hire to take pictures and frame Silverman with! ;)*And a scene at the Laundromat (After his girl throws him into the Ocean) Jason Biggs gets an eyeful of his new girlfriend, as she quickly changes in front of him. But he tries to be a gentlemen because he knows he is falling in love.The new 3 minute footage isnt as raunchy as "Roadtrip" but it's a definite plus! There wasn't more you could add to the film to make it better, it was already a classic college film!"
A movie worth watching!

"Definitely a good movie, Saving Silverman, brings to the screen exactly what the title implies: the story of two buddies who in an effort to hook up their friend (and third member of the group) with a new girlfriend end up introducing him to the wrong girl. Now they must try and undo what they themselves helped set up. Along the way, they get into all sorts of trouble resulting in a great comedy! Jason Biggs, Jack Black, Amanda Peet and Amanda Detmer (both of whom are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!), and the rest of the cast, have outdone themselves with their performances, which are exceptional to say the least. All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows (the chemistry is AMAZING)! On the negative side, the Neil Diamond element, with the singer himself appearing in the film, was a poor choice; not that interesting and not that funny. Saving Silverman is simple enough, nevertheless, it is without a doubt guaranteed to provide more than just a few laughs. Strongly recommended for an evening's entertainment along with Road Trip, Old School, the Girl Next Door and of course (!!!) the American Pie trilogy. "
Hilarious ! Funny ! Over the top laughter !

"Saving Silverman is a laughing riot from start to end. After many years, have I seen such an amazing film with amazing performances. Jack Black stands out as the best guy in the film. He can't make you stop laughing. Steve Zahn gives an amazing performance as well. This laugh riot is a great entertainer for the entire family and a great pick for frineds. A must see and a must buy. Go for it. Trust me, you will laugh your bones out !!!"
Very Pleasantly Surprised!

"We rented this movie not expecting too much. We like this genre (moron movies). Unlike several eggheads who reviewed this movie, we had no trouble at all following the plot. We just thought this movie was a scream! Lots of idiotic action and the girlfriend from hell. What's not to like? If you like this type of movie, you will love it!
"To any dweebs out there that automatically assume this movie will be similar to the flick,'Saving Private Ryan',some friendly advise:WATCH the trailer,oh yeah...and pay attention.I've actually run across a few movie fans that ask about that.'Saving Silverman',in my opinion has to BE one of the better comedy movies of 2001.Please ignore all them fancy-shmancy big-time critic reviews.This flick rocks!!In a sense,the three main characters are sort of like a modern day Three Stooges,set in a movie version of the old 'Woman Haters' short.Anyone remember that film?Darren Silverman(Jason Biggs)would be Larry,J.D.McNugent(Jack Black)would be Curly and Wayne(Steve Zahn)would be Moe.Oh,yeah Judith,the worldly/tough women to outwit(Amanda Peet)would be Daisy Mae.I've literally watched this movie at least a dozen times in the last year.My favorite scenes are:the three guy's major obsession with Neil Diamond(who appears late in the film)when Judith visits their home,insisting that the Neil Diamond concert setlist that's actually framed in their living room that it's simply a photocopy,when Judith falsly befriends J.D.(Jack Black)in their basement that he's really gay because he's never had a girlfriend and of course the wedding scene.Just overall, a great movie.Recommended."
