There?s a boys?-club logic to Don Rickles? participation in this predictably rude, crayon-colored first starring feature from former SNL cast member Norm Macdonald, directed by Bob Saget. Macdonald?s brand of humor?cheerfully insulting, distractedly raunchy, basically harmless?owes a lot to the Rickles School of Interpersonal Relationships. Macdonald (fine behind a ?Weekend Update? desk, less convincing as an actor) and MAD TV?s Artie Lange play a pair of lifelong buddies not good for much in the adult world. They do, however, have a knack for inventive revenge scenarios, and with this skill they go into business. (It must be Saget?s Full House influence: They wreak havoc only for good, not evil.) Perhaps with Übermanager Brad Grey on board as executive producer, a lot of favors get called in: Comedy-fraternity participants, credited and otherwise, include Chevy Chase, the late Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, and John Goodman.
