  • It's basically a cheerful slob job, one of those slapped-together features so often embraced by teenagers with more disposable income than discernible taste. show more

  • Peet is always worth watching, but the role does her no favors, and the script, involving a kidnapping and a surprise cameo by Neil Diamond - you heard me - smacks of desperation beyond saving. show more

  • Yes, it's stupid. But sometimes it's stupid with a capital S, and it's in those moments of transcendent idiocy that you can't help liking Saving Silverman. At least, a little bit. show more
