In one scene, Dan Hedaya and friends are listening to Emily play the piano. She is playing the song "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," the Cheers (1982) theme song. Hedaya played Nick Tortelli on Cheers from 1984 to 1987. 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 »
"What's up?" - Either you love it or you hate it. Actually to me Roxbury is one of my favourites. Of course the two guys are hilarious - but that's what they're supposed to be. This movie is full of great innuendos to disco chicks ("Is this your first time?"), to stupid and bored upper class people ("Do you like my new chin? Is it better than last years?") and to some movies ("You had me at hello!"). Even after watching it the 3rd or 4th time you still can discover some new hints and gags.
It's a funny movie but certainly not dumb!
