This film is certainly worth the time needed to watch it as it is hilarious. I think if Amazon priced it and similar films more attractively they might see rentals increase. This should be no more than a $1.99 rental, and if they could push it down to 99c ....

THE BEST MOVIE EVER, BUY IT NOW RUBBERNECK
Verified purchase
You better buy this movie right now you milky lickers.
The Jerky Boys are the best, I can quote more of there stuff than any normal person should be able to.
I love all their stuff, I have spent so much time laughing so hard at some of their stuff I have almost thrown up multiple times.
Also I am happy to see (or hear) Saul Rosenberg's voice and Jack Tors's voice in Family Guy.

I have loved the Jerky Boys since they were just bootleg tapes back in 1994, and still love them now.
I am a happier person in life for simply having been able to hear their wonderful work.

Now you little fruit a$$ get this DVD before Frank Rizzo has to wrap your head in with a ratchet, or Saul Rosenberg has to sit with you and show you his nub.
Or Jack Tors rides his little bicycle into your face.

And by the way, this DVD was region 2, but if you use dvd ripping tools you can write it back to DVD in region 1.
Or just watch it on your PC.

Jerky and Jerky!
Verified purchase
Alan Arkin is great here, but so are the Jerky Boys. The best thing about the movie is the soundtrack. An alternative compilation of music that is definitely worth noting. If you are a fan of The Jerky Boys than you will love this movie. It is a cash grab from the heigh of their fame. I'm in the minority, but love this movie.

It's bad writing, but it's The Jerky Boys at their finest.

Region 2 is not for me.... or You!
Verified purchase
I didn't get a chance to view it as it was a "Region 2" dvd that does not play on dvd players in the states!! Sent it back and I am currently trying to find a "Region 1" dvd for my collection and viewing. I loved this movie as a comedy when It first came out years ago. If anybody out there can tell me where I can get a decent dvd .... please let me know!

Jerky Boys movie
Verified purchase
I bought this movie for my husband because he's been looking all over for it. I could only find it on VHS; the only DVD was not for our region. We recently bought a new plasma TV so, as I found out later, the picture quality is not great.
The movie itself is so dumb that it's funny. I enjoy 'dumb' comedy, like Airplane (my favorite movie) and Leslie Nielsen movies so I did enjoy it and my husband LOVED it. [[ASIN:6303584810 Jerky Boys [VHS]]] If only it came on DVD for our country.

CENSORED VERSION ONLY
Verified purchase
THE ORIGINAL VERSION WAS GREAT. THIS WAS A CENSORED VERSION. I CHANGED THE REGION 2 THRU DVD-FAB. AFTER I CONVERTED IT IT PLAYED ON ALL MY DVD PLAYERS EXCEPT SONY BLU-RAY PLAYER. THEY CUT OUT THE BEST PART OF THE EGYPTIAN DANCER AND WHEN STRIPPED. NO NAKED GIRLS, ALL WAS DELETED.
