Also, 3 uses of the word "fuck" are added, among other dialogue, and the scene with the hookers playing ping-pong has them topless, rather than wearing the bras they had in the theatrical release.

pretty bad but a lot of fun
29 January 2002 | by jlittlejSee all my reviews

Granted, Saving Silverman is not good movie. Jason Biggs is only funny as the American Pie guy, and even that act got old by the sequel. But Steven Zahn and Jack Black are two very funny individuals. A Neil Diamond cover band called "Diamonds in the Rough." I could laugh about that for days. And the crazy, gay coach. I don't see how anyone with a sense of humor could walk out of this movie feeling bad.
