I've seen both "county" projects and it's a tough call, but I'm-a give it to WC. Most of Orange County's funny moments were shown in the preview and Jack Black playing Jack Black can only do so much. Remember, this time last year, Jack Black playing Jack Black couldn't save that haha funny classic Saving Silverman. Oh and the OC ending sucks ass.
black hawk down

jon says: it's soooooo fuckin' good. jerry bruckheimer and ridley scott basically take the opening sequence in saving private ryan, transport it to africa, and stretch it out to make a full-length movie. i'm talkin' 144 exhausting minutes of reflective testosterone-saturated violence, unrelenting and graphic yet thoughtful at the same time
rory says: josh hartnett is soooooo dreamy…
bonus: there are LOTS of black people in this movie
Lisa: Now I won't be able to get into an Ivy League university!
Homer and Bart: [taunting Lisa] You're going to Stanford… You're going to Stanford…
