4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful comedy that everyone should see! June 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Whenever Jack Black's name can be found on a movie, you know you're in for some genuine laughs that usually result in you on the floor holding your chest til it hurts. Black is this way in this movie, and, unlike some of his other movies (Saving Silverman, for example), he is backed by a talented cast that knows how to generate some laughs. While the script seems to be a bit weak, which is starting to become an unfortunate trend in Holywood movies nowadays, the cast definitely makes up for it.
Basically, Shaun Brumder (Colin Hanks), is trying to get into Standford University to become a professional writer, but his dysfunctional family and moronic guidance counselor seem to be preventing him from doing so. Now, I've been hearing a lot of critics complaining about Colin's style of acting, and quite frankly, I don't see what all the fuss is about. Colins, for a new actor, is great in this movie, kinda like my brother and I are around our family (he plays the whole "why does all this crap happen to me; God must hate me" role very well, and it's hilarious). I especially like the scene where he argues with his guidance counselor, exclaiming "because you are a moron!" when she doesn't quite grasp his frustration with sending the wrong transcript to Stanford. Lily Tomin, who plays this guidance counselor, is hilarious the brief time she is on screen, and made the confrontation between her and Shaun that much more enjoyable. Shuan's family, however, takes the cake in this movie.
Like I said earlier, your chest will hurt from laughing whenever Black, as Shaun's stoner brother, is on screen (though he could have been on more).

2.0 out of 5 stars COMMERCIAL RUBBISH Jan. 8 2004
Format:DVD
In Brief
Shaun Brumder is a surfer dude from the sunshine state, whose outlook on life takes a U Turn following the death of a friend and the discovery of a book on the beach. Realising his desire to become a writer, he sets his board to one side and pursues acceptance at Stanford University. A straight-A student he should have been a shoe-in but a series of obstacles block his path as he sets out on a journey of personal discovery.
Review
Though the marketing department behind Orange County would like us to believe that this film is a laugh out loud riot, unfortunately it is not. This is a weird breed of filmmaking as it is essentially a feel good movie for teenagers. Now that's not to say that this film isn't funny, but the comedy gems are spread out and generally come courteously of Jack Black.
Black, for those of you who don't know, is part of the comedy genius behind Tenacious D (the satirical folk metal band) and the man who memorably stole the show in High Fidelity. Here he plays Shaun's older stoner brother to perfection, but criminally his total screen time is short and one can't help but wish he featured in the film as heavily as he does in the promotional posters and press releases.
Like Black's performance the strength of the film comes through its attention to the very small character traits or idiosyncrasies (or should that be inconsistencies) of teenage life. The ironic focus on relationships and finding ones path in life is unfortunately overshadowed by hardcore Californian mush. Remember California Dreams from 90's morning TV, well its not that bad! However if one were to lift a plot from said TV Show and add a shiny new 12A rating, thus creating more ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Funnier than I remembered
A funny and clever coming-of-age story. Jack Black is absolutely hilarious as the burnout, underwear-clad buffoon of a brother to Colin Hanks' smart, motivated college-bound... Read more

This is a light, fun, dumb movie that could have been good. Colin Hanks plays a young guy who wants to be a writer and not a surfer. Read more
