Did You Know?
Originally in the singing penis scene, Mike Maronna's own naked penis was used with a CGI mouth added in. After being screened for the MPAA however, the filmmakers were told to put a sock on it (literally).
Crew or equipment visible:
In the widescreen version of this film the dolly track is not visible in the last scene.
I brought you coffee.
I don't touch that stuff.
Can I come in?
No. No one comes into Ethan's room. Ethan's rules.
What's that smell?
Maybe it's the smell of your ass getting kicked out of school.
Whats wrong with you people?!
Worst movie of the year? Ok…the name is SLACKERS! Not Schindlers List
Part 2. Why do you people try to pull so much meaning out of these

a diamond in the rough? A Spielbergian classic?!? I like stupid humor.
Sue me. I can laugh dumb nonsense. I've shown this to a ton of people
they all found humor in it. Cool Ethan is quite possibly the craziest

Seriously…take notes from STAN, eminems greatest fan.
My advice to you critics that downplay a stupid script in the first place
to stop watching comedy's. Stop now while you're ahead. Thank you and
