If stupidity makes you laugh... GET THIS
Verified purchase
This movie had me laughing from start to finish. It has fast become on of my families favorites.... cause I aint stupid. You can tell when my family has set down and watched this again as the quips from the film are flying!
I can honestly say it will have you laughing in the first 5 minutes of the movie. If your in need of a good laugh... take a chance and get this. It wasn't highly marketed so I didn't even know about it till a friend recommended it to me. My family has loved it and to be honest... I prob need to order a second copy in case something happens to the first.

a good time
Verified purchase
admittedly, the plot is a bit thin, but what it lacks in a coherent story line, it more than makes up for with amusing characters. junior is particularly funny in nearly every scene. there is also the comical idea that a boy and girl who were dating, had their parents marry, so now they are step brother and sister. film is full of fun, amusing characters in odd situations.

Boringggggg and slowww...terrible accents
Verified purchase
This movie just flat out sucks. lol. Accents are not what people sound like in Texas. The plot never got going. Jackson's acting...he seemed comatose the whole film. The crazy dude did a good job as did the skinny dude. But their writing just dragged on. Like the screenwriter realized he had written a funny part and rather than leave on top...wore out his welcome with too much dialogue....a trait of a novice screenwriter.

Easily one of the most hilarious movies I've ever seen! I've watched it so many times and still have to wipe tears of laughter from my eyes and my ribs hurt from laughing so hard. I love this movie!

Just a Lot of Fun
Verified purchase
This is a simple "good ol' boy movie and even if you aren't really into this type of movie you should watch it anyway...just for the fun of it. It's a no-brainer and when you finish watching, I can promise you won't have any philosophical questions haunting you or be afraid of being home alone. :) The cast does an excellent job and THEY ARE the characters they play...very believable.

Earl (Joshua Jackson) and Baby (Jamie King), are engaged and live in their parents house. They are step-brother and sister and Earl gets really annoyed when anyone calls her his sister, especially when he is kissing her. :)

The story takes place in a small town in Texas and begins with Tinker (an ex-con) and Junior (a rather stupid cousin to Baby, Earl's girlfriend) robbing a pizza delivery guy. They unwittingly strike it rich when they find the black tote contains $20,000 and 3 large bags of cocaine.

Tinker makes arrangements to sell the stuff to Juan Vasquez and his boys. But before he can finalize the deal Junior grudgingly tells Earl (while embraced in a headlock) what he and Tinker have done.

Earl and Junior go to Tinkers house, where Earl takes the bag of 'stuff', then proceeds to hide it at the bowling alley until the real "owners" come for it (basically to protect Junior, who he can't stand but looks out for because he is under orders from Baby.)

Tinker already has it in for Earl because he botched a get-away after holding up a liquor store, so he goes to Earl's house to try get info about the hiding place. Earl tells him nothing, that is, until Baby comes around a corner which gives Tinker the leverage he needs to get his 'stuff' back! After getting his 'stuff' Tinker stops the truck and shoots Earl (not fatally). Baby backs the truck over him and takes Earl to the animal doctor. :)

Juan Vasquez threatens Junior and wants the stuff, so Junior and Earl go to give it back (not knowing that these gentlemen are not the true owners). There is a shortage in the money, so long story short Junior loses his "pinkie" finger.

Junior shows up at Earl's house all beat up and says the real owners want THEIR 'stuff'. So Earl, Jimbo (Earl's homosexual best friend), Junior, and Tinker go to Juan's house with heavy artillery to get the 'stuff' which they take to a rich guy (the real owner) in a huge ranch house. While there Earl get's a phone call that Juan has kidnapped Baby and he wants the 'stuff'!!!! So they head back to the wearhouse, but so does the rich guy. A big gunfight ensues, baby is rescued, and the bad guys are either killed or injured!

On the way back to the car, after the gunfight, Junior accidentally shoots Earl in the leg. Tinker, in damaged condition from being backed over by the truck, is on the ground after threatening Earl for umpteenth time. They leave him with the 3 bags of cocaine. :)

Earl and Baby split the money with friends and family and literally head into the sunset to their new life in Los Angeles. :)

My pick for the most amusing scenes: When Tinker and Junior are planning the pizza guy robbery and they wear Maxi Pads for masks and when Tinker is trying to get Earl to tell him where the 'stuff' is. :) :) :)

Give this movie a look you have nothing to lose. :) :) :)

Who's your daddy now Mr Panasonic!?!

This is one of my all time favorite movies. When I first saw this movie I rented it from blockbusters when there was nothing else that seemed worth watching. I had never heard anything about this movie, never seen any advertising but the description on the box made it seem worth a try. Watched this movie with a few friends and we laughed through the entire movie. This is the third or forth time I have purchased this movie after letting people borrow it and not wanting to give it back. It is ridiculous but extremely funny.

Maybe you have to be from Texas? 'Nah!
Verified purchase
I've seen reviews that range from calling this comedy "juvenile and unfunny" to saying that "the Actors involved mugged for the camera too much". First of all, aren't Actors supposed to mug it up in a comedy? Secondly, the characters in this comedy are dead-on. Maybe you have to be from Texas, but I bought this DVD the day it came out, and never tire of watching it. And as far as what have been called "lame stereotypes" of Southern people? Apparently you've never ventured into ANY of the small towns that make up not only Texas, but most of the South. No, all people from the South aren't idiots and screw-ups. Quite the contrary, most people in the South are very intelligent. They just don't feel the constant need to prove it to the World on a daily basis. The point is this is a "silly" comedy, and if you don't find that kind of stuff funny you won't like this movie. However, if you can just kick back and watch a VERY original movie that will make you laugh your a** off more than once, buy this movie. 'Nuff said.

A fun oddball comedy
Verified purchase
It turns into a bit of a wild ride but quite enjoyable overall. I liked the way the gay guy gets worked into the story line along with the rest of the characters as one of the "good guys.'
