Great Movie!
25 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yesterday, I watched "A Night at the Roxbury" for the first time and I absolutely loved it! I think Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell did a great job and were an awesome team. They were VERY funny and kept me laughing and cheering for them through the whole movie. The music in this movie was also great, it made me want to get up and dance (maybe even the head bop! lol)This movie also had the *perfect* ending. I enjoyed all the characters and liked the twists the movie took. I would definitely recommend this movie for a good laugh for anyone, even critical friends. Nomatter who you are, there is something for you to enjoy in this awesome comedy. "A Night at the Roxbury" is a must!
