The comedy is only kind of so-so, but what's really great about this film is seeing early debuts by the likes of Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Amy Poehler. Love the random making out, the hour in town, the baseball team just giving up, the waterfall rescue that's never shown and the Vietnam vet training montage.

While it's kind of fun, for about five minutes, to see big stars like Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, and Paul Rudd pop up in supporting roles in one of their first films, the movie is hit and miss at best. Some of the weird humor works well because it is so insanely odd, but a lot of the scenes felt like they would have worked better in a sketch comedy than an actual film. I don't really get the film's cult appeal, as it's really a disjointed mess that only works, occasionally, because of its cast's inherent comic skill.
