    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Was unsure about the ending the first time around- it seemed like a very predictable, lazy twist that was just shoehorned in for the sake of having a twist. I've since realized that that's not the point, and rewatching the film with the knowledge of the ending definitely made me realize how brilliant the ending is.

    Essentially what would happen if a studio executive accidentally merged the script for an Adam Sandler film with the script for Festen. Transcendental stupidity mixed with a side of what seems to be Tom Green's real hatred for his actual father (and some sus trivialization of assault that loses this movie a few points). Very underappreciated moment is when a waiter tries to get Rip Torn to stop beating the shit out of Tom Green by saying "sir, this is a fancy restaurant".
