The funniest movie
2 October 2001 | by sausage84See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, Steve and Doug Butabi make the movie very entertaining as they constantly bop their heads to the song "What is love" by Haddaway. Also lines by people such as Mr. Zadir constantly asking "Did you touch my arse?" and Steve asking everyone "What's up?" make the movie even more enjoyable. Not only is A Night At The Roxbury a damn good movie it also has a killer dance soundtrack, one of the best I have ever heard with Haddaway, Faithless, N-trance, Brainbug and many more good artists.
