THE RULES OF CHEATING
When you're in a committed relationship and have sex with another person it's not cheating if......
You're in different area codes.
You're with two people at the same time, because they cancel each other out.
But it is definitely cheating if you videotape it and someone accidentally mails the tape to your girlfriend, which to his horror is exactly what happened to Josh. Discovering the mistake, Josh tows two of his college buddies and one not so eager kid who happens to own the car on a raucous 1,800 mile road trip from Ithaca, New York to Austin, Texas to save his lifelong romance.
Road Trip Unseen & Explicit shows you what they didn't dare show at the cinema
My Thoughts:I haven't watched this movie for years. I still enjoyed it though like I did then. The breakout character for me was DJ Qualls. Without him this movie would have only been half the fun. Seann William Scott is fun as a Stifler-like character. At the time of this movie's release it was still a rather new character, but he only seems to be doing it since. Though if all the making ofs and audio commentaries I have seen, which are mentioning him, are to be believed, Seann William Scott is a real nice guy in real life. Very different to his Stifler persona.
Another performance I enjoyed is Tom Green as the tour guide.

Bubba Ho-Tep, a review by addicted2dvd
Bruce Campbell (the Evil Dead trilogy) "gives his greatest and most entertaining performance to date" (Premiere) as an aging and cantankerous "Elvis" in this "zinger-filled crowd-pleaser" (The Hollywood Reporter) from writer-director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm)! When mysterious deaths plague a Texas retirement home, it's up to its most sequined senior citizen to take on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy with a penchant for cowboy boots, bathroom graffiti and sucking the souls from the barely living!
Bruce Campbell as an elderly Elvis? That alone is worth the watch... at least once. But what do I think of this movie? Hmmmm... I actually have mixed feelings on the actual content of the movie. The horror aspects is pretty cool. As for the comedy aspects... while there is some decent laughs most the comedy in this movie is very juvenile. But it works for what it is. Even with that said... I enjoyed this movie... more then what I probably should. I just found it to be a lot of fun.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom
Hier ist sie endlich: Otto - die Serie! Entstanden aus knapp 30 alten Filmen der Edgar-Wallace-Reihe und aus über 300 neuen Otto-Waalkes-Szenen.
Otto Waalkes meets Edgar Wallace - wahrlich eine unheimliche Begegnung der dritten Art. Wie kam es dazu? Alte Bilder wurden neu montiert und betextet, die daraus entstandenen Stories unterbrochen, kommentiert, uminterpretiert.
Als Moderator seiner vielfältigen Abenteuer wird Otto außerdem von Fall zu Fall gängige Formen der Fernsehunterhaltung parodieren: Vom Quizmaster bis zum Sonntagsprediger.
Der Seriencharakter wird durch das wiederkehrende Personal und die stereotypen Motive der Wallace-Filme ebenso wie durch Ottos ständige Präsenz als handelnder Held und kommentierender Moderator gewährleistet.
"Otto - Die Serie" auf DVD? Das bedeutet Ablachen ohne Ende!
Das sind mehr als 5 Stunden Comedy pur!
Otto - Die Serie
1.01 Folge 1
I first watched this series when it first aired in the 90s. It's from and with the famous German comedian Otto Waalkes. In this series the stetches were mainly Otto inserted (Forrest Gump style) in the German movies based on Edgar Wallaces books, which were quite famous. These movie also made Klaus Kinski famous.
The insertion works quite well. Probably the series came about because of the success of Forrest Gump.
