Terry and Dean are lifelong friends who have grown-up together: shotgunning their first beers, forming their first garage band, and growing the great Canadian mullet known as "hockey hair". Now the lives of these Alberta everymen are brought to the big screen by documentarian Ferral Mitchener in an exploration of the depths of friendship, the fragility of life, growing up gracefully and the art and science of drinking beer like a man.

19 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is truly an original. There have been many lower budget movies created featuring mullets, beer and heavy metal. But this Alberta local, is a classic! Deaner and Terry are sincerely oblivious to some basic facts of life. The movie focuses on their way of life and follows them through a variety of mishaps and drunk shenanigans. The suck is definitely turned down in this film. Other movies try way to hard to achieve what was done naturally in FUBAR. There is no comparison and I feel it has filled a void in my life. I can now die a happy man for having watched it. I would recommend this movie to people that can withstand a bit of out of context cursing and a hungover lifestyle. Just Give'r
