Happiness is a cold proper temperature beer
3 September 2006 | by (Southgate, MI) – See all my reviews

First off, please give this film a chance. It starts a little corny, but I believe once it starts with them bringing the team together, it really picks up. All the little references they talk about while meeting each other is very funny.

While watching, you might think this is something Homer Simspon might have try to pull off, without the nudity, dirty words, and sex. Through a lot of the drinking comedy would have been the same. It pulls no punches and will offend, but the beauty of comedy, is not to give you enough time to think about that, just laugh.

This is a long movie, but there were a few points that made no sense, (in their world), and needed more scenes to flesh out. Sorry to say, while listening to many commentary tracks, this is a evil that will be in a every film.

These people all seem very real to me, and I believe I have met them before, which helps shed light on the world of beer drinking. I been to bars, where I have seen things like this, hell, I have been thrown out of a bar, from some bad antics. The worst thing, is that they wouldn't let me finish my drink.

So, to end, enjoy this film. Once you get pass the slap-stick comedy part, it picks up steam, and takes you for a nice little ride.
