    I am not sure how many of you saw the movie "I love you Man" but the whole "Slappin Da Bass " routine. I did not like, it was not funny.

    It's hard enough being a bass player and they go and degrade the whole art form.

  2. i thought it was hilarious XD lighten up. ahahha

    The movie was hilarious, especially the line about why the hot chic's husband would not cheat on her in Vegas.

    I guess I have never been a slappin kind of guy.

    Kinda didn't like it. Tryin' too hard.
  6. i can see why it would annoy people. it is a common stereo type. but i just dont really mind
  7. Better than I expected, and they get bonus points for making Rush part of the story line, AND having them in the movie.

    Yeah, the "slappin da bass, mahn" schtick was lame...otherwise, there were some genuinely funny moments, and a good story.
  8. I agree with Gard. I really enjoyed the movie but felt the "slappin de bass" was a tad overdone.

  15. Any movie that includes Rush and Lou Ferrigno as plot devices gets a thumbs up in my book.

    Every time he said "slappin da bass" I couldn't stop laughing. So I approve of it. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are hilarious.

    i just watched the clip on youtube.

    Maybe it was out of context, but I thought it was stupid.

    Plus, Geddy doesn't slap!

    The same actor can be seen in doing the same thing (the air bass) in the movie Knocked Up.

    i thought it was hilarious, the whole movie and the slap stuff. everything that mentions bass isn't an attack on it, it's just the character being goofy.

    they even have him playing a geddy sig for some of it.
