Saving Silverman

Rated 2.0 This wannabe Farrelly Brothers comedy (imagine a clean-cut, spineless There’s Something About Mary leading man paired with Dumb and Dumber sidekicks) does a better job substituting Vancouver, Canada, for its American locales than harvesting the ripe comic talent of Steve Zahn (Happy, Texas) and Jack Black (High Fidelity). Cast respectively as moronic buddies, they try to keep the third member of their Neil Diamond tribute band (American Pie‘s Jason Biggs as Darren) from marrying the wrong woman: a hardcore bitch and psychologist (Amanda Peet). The predominantly lame and offensive script overwhelms the film’s few big laughs. Directed by Dennis Dugan (Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy).
