"Schniedelwichsen" is a name put together from vulgar German words. The literal translation is "cock jerking". See more »


The beer in the last 'Das Boot' challenge is all clearly CGI (except for Gil; "Landfill II") as the level of the beer does not match the contestants' mouths. See more »


Jan Wolfhouse: [Barry picked up a woman] Are you sure you want to do this?

One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beerfest was exactly what i was hoping for. After super troopers, Broken Lizard came out with a not that great movie Club Dread but now after seeing Beerfest i know they still have the comedy talent. Beerfest was the funniest movie i have seen since Old School or super troopers. It starts off kind of slow but when the brothers get a beer drinking team together and start the training, i don't think there has ever been anything funnier in a movie in the past few years. When it gets going, man non stop laughter. I was even crying because i was laughing so hard. Go and see it and trust me you will not regret those 9 dollars you spent at the theater!
