Trivia

In the scene after Doug and Steve are dumped, as they are driving on the highway, the song in the background was originally the somber "No Surprises" by Radiohead. This cut of the film was presented at the test screening in Westbury, New York about six months prior to the film's release. See more »

Goofs

When Dooey had Doug and Steve kicked out of Zadir's office, we see him following the guards down the hall. He jumps from halfway down the hall, back to Zadir's door to tell Zadir that it was just a couple trespassers. See more »

great feel good movie
9 January 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is fun. It is a relaxed movie about two brothers. Their hobby is visiting clubs. But they have a problem....they are not the two coolest people. Dressing with nice clothes and driving in a BMW does not really help because they act stupid. But they have a dream - to own a club - and maybe this comes true. The movie is set in LA and has nice disco-music in it.

the comment on DVD says it is the dumb and dumber of disco...and they are right..it's something like that. I think it is entertaining enough to watch more than one time because a few scenes are really hilarious.

See it for your self.
