2 Best Friends + 1 Girlfriend = WAR! Darren Silverman (Jason Biggs), Wayne Lefessier (Steve Zahn) and J.D. McNugent (Jack Black) have been best friends since the fifth grade. Enter Judith (Amanda Peet), a cold-hearted beauty who digs her claws into sweet-natured Darren. She snatches him from his friends and even breaks up their cover band. J.D. and Wayne try every imaginable scheme to save Darren - and their friendship - but fail miserably. When they find out Darren has been brainwashed into marrying Judith, the dim-witted duo decide to kidnap her and reunite Darren with his long-lost love, before she becomes a nun!

Critics Consensus: Dragged down by a plot lacking any sense of logic and obnoxious, unsympathetic characters, this comedy is more crude and mean-spirited than funny.

A dumb comedy, but older teens may laugh.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is a PG-13 movie that could easily have qualified for an R (and, in fact, an R-rated version was also released on DVD), and they should be very cautious about evaluating its appropriateness for teenagers. The movie has very strong language and jokes about oral sex, masturbation, and homosexuality. A "butt cheek implant" operation is shown in brief but gross detail. Drinking too much beer is portrayed as a humorous bonding experience. The movie includes comic kidnapping and comic fatalities. A woman uses sex to control a man.
