The dance routine Doug and Steve perform with Cambi and Vivica at their first night at the Roxbury, is the same as the one Vinnie and Barney and two ladies perform in the club scene in My Blue Heaven (1990). See more »


When Steve is talking to his Dad in the kitchen, during dinner with the Sandersons, we see Mr. Butabi with a bottle of wine that he just uncorked. In the next shot, we see the cork in his hand, but we hear and see him pull it out again at the end of the scene. See more »

THIS MOVIE IS GREAAAAAAAAAT! i guarantee you'll be laughing throughout the movie. I'v read some reviews about this movie and i can't help but wonder why people say its horrible? Maybe your not the type who enjoy a good comedy once in a while. The two brothers are absolutely hysterical. They just keep the laughs coming. AND, what about the music? The music just happens to fit the movie so good that i think its a 'must see movie'. I'm a proud owner of this movie. When i'm in need of a good laugh this is the movie i watch. The story is wonderful, and the actors and actresses have done the greatest job on this movie. If i could i'd give it 100 OUT OF 100 :)
