4.0 out of 5 stars Directors Cut July 27, 2005
This movie is FUNNY! If you are looking for a raunchy,rude, and wild movie, The New Guy:Directors Cut is for you. This version is not all that different from the original version. There are a few new scenes, including Gil (DJ Qualls) making out with Eliza Dushku in the sprinklers and some akward talks with Gil, his father, and the councilor . All in all, this is the version to buy, because it has more adult subject matter. And, who doesn't enjoy that?

4.0 out of 5 stars A good movie.... for certain people November 6, 2004
Anyone looking for teen melodrama, standard comedy, or normal people needs to mosey on away from this DVD. Yes you, shoo. This movie isn't for you. You'll probably hate it.

Now that those weirdos are gone, let me tell you why I love The New Guy. This movie isn't very good, and that is its strongest point. It exists to make fun of teen melodramas with a great assembly of random guest stars, completely mediocre cinematography, some movie mocking moments, and general randomness. This movie doesn't take itself seriously for a second, and neither should you. The whole thing is like a litany of "When really odd people do odd things and more odd random things happen to them". If this sounds like you, someone you know, or someone you used to be, then you'll enjoy this movie. If you can relax, have no expectations, and just let it flow I garentee you'll spend the film doubled over. It features over the top geeks like a midget tuba player, a couple ugly-pretty girls, a fat black kid, and a greasy haired Asian guy. The soundtrack adds to every humorous moment by sounding like an Oscar winner meeting a NOW thats what I call music CD. Most of the guest stars are not big names, but that one guy from that one 80's band or that one tv show. And they pop up in the most random places, like Lyle Loveitt with a marshmellow burning in his face and Jermiane Dupri's excellent delivery of "whose the [...] now?". DJ Qualls does a wonderful job in the title role although you're probably going "who the heck is DJ Qualls?". Eliza Dushku is hot hot hot.

So if you're an interesting and random person looking for an easy going and random DVD to pop in one day, I would reccomend picking up The New Guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars new guy directors cut December 21, 2009
By J.G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the directors cut has slight little differences than the original. from the extended scenes of dizzies dad getting the marshmellow in the eye all the way through. most notibly is the scene on the horse, he is addressing the crowd and not the football team to get them fired up before 'their first win since the last busch administration.'all in all the differences were great. did it make the film better, i think it did, did it make it worse, definately not, it just made it different. if you get the chance to get the original or directors cut on dvd i would suggest the directors cut, it does make a difference

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny!!! October 10, 2008
I thought this was really good! It has a really awesome plot and message! Dizzy is a nerd who so desperately wants to be cool. After he's expelled from school, he seeks help from a prisoner named Luther. Luther helps him to become cool. He transfers to a new school and gets people to like him. He beats up the bully. he gets the geeks and cool people to like each other, he helps the football players win the big game, and gets the girl. The bully is sick of it, so he teams up with the bully from Dizzy's old school and sets a trap for him. If you love comedy, you'll love THE NEW GUY!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Guy makes a good 1st impression August 6, 2002
I went into "The New Guy" on May 10 (opening day) not really expecting a lot. To be honest, I was afraid it would end up as another "Meet The Parents" or "Dude, Where's My Car ?", movies that looked really funny in their respective trailers, yet they turned out to have had all their really excellently funny moments spoiled by those same trailers. I feared the same fate for "The New Guy." Still, it stars Eliza Dushku, and that reason alone gave me the courage to give it a fair chance. And, I gotta tell ya, it was really a pleasant surprise ! It stars DJ Qualls as Dizzy, a member of a rock/funk band and the kid everyone picks on at his high school. One thing leads to another, and he ends up in jail with Eddie Griffin ("Armageddon," "Undercover Brother"), who shows him how to really get people to notice him, this time for the better. He shows up at a rival high school and quickly becomes recognized as the coolest guy there. Eventually, he catches the eye of the head cheerleader (Eliza Dushku), and the two hit it off really well. Of course, when you're new and have everyone's attention, those who used to rule the school are bound to get jealous and look for any kind of dirt they can find on you. Again, this movie was a big surprise for me, especially the skimpy outfits Eliza Dushku wears, and I will be so bold as to label it one of the most fun movie experiences of the year. Perhaps most surprising of all is the ending, which will catch first-time viewers off guard and likely send them falling from their chairs with laughter, and is perfect for the kind of movie that "The New Guy" is. Rated PG-13, it does not have as much foul language as other teen comedies like "American Pie," but it does contain scenes of serious injuries to a man's most personal area. A definite must-see for fans of comedies and of actress Eliza Dushku, who is looking as hot as ever.
