Trivia

In the scene after Doug and Steve are dumped, as they're 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

On their way to their father's "fake plant shop", the Butabi brothers pass the lamp shop on their left. This shop is supposedly right next to their father's store (to the left), yet they keep walking for a few more minutes. Then we see them walk into their father's store coming from the right, when they should've walked in from the other direction. See more »

Quotes

Doug Butabi: Idiot.
Craig: You know Doug, just because you and your brother are having problems, that's no reason to refer to my intellectual capacity in a diminutive manner.

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!
