It's Comedy Week for TFT's Movie Quote of the Day. I'll be concentrating on the wackiest comedies that are the very definition of low-brow humor.
Case in point: Saving Silverman.
This horrid movie stars Steve Zahn, Jason Biggs, and Jack Black. It's a ridiculous movie made even more ridiculous by a guest appearance by Neil Diamond himself. But one man steals the show: R. Lee Ermey, who plays an exiled high school football coach with a penchant for unpredictable behavior.
Case in point: after kidnapping Neil Diamond so that Jason Biggs' character won't marry the controlling, loathsome Judith, the boys find the cops hot on their tail. But Coach won't let the Five-O stand in the way of true love, pulling out an uzi and imparting inspirational words to the crew:
"I'd rather be cut down in a hail of gunfire than go back to the big house. Nice meeting you, Mr. Diamond."
