This movie is GREAT! I was laughing the whole time. Dark humour at it's finest. Steve Coogan steals the show although I felt the chemistry he had with the rest of the cast ( the students) was too short for me, but this mangaged to be a movie worth buying.
Great story, decent characters and Steve Coogan is always funny! However, it is let down by some very stereotypical secondary characters. Overall, though, the story of struggle, eventual redemption and realization of a dream makes it worth watching for anyone who ever wished to do something great for the world.
Raped in the face was a funny musical song in the movie. If you live in Tucson,AZ you may be deeply offended, they trashed the city of Tucson thru the whole movie cuz they wouldnt allow alot of filming there so they packed up and shot the film in albuquerque instead, but still say it's in Tucson. It was funny cuz of that too. :-)
