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: Why go out for a burger when you got steak at home?

Good to the last laugh...
2 May 2004 | by tbaby2290See all my reviews

Apparently, not many people are being very fair about the movie, by rating it at 1 or 2 on scale up to 10. Please people, understand that this movie was not made to get Oscars, or Grammys, it was made for the people entertainment, so don't go off giving that crap about "i dont like will ferrell or chris kattan so it sucked" cause if you don't like them, DONT WATCH THE MOVIE IN THE FIRST PLACE! as simple as that.

I myself am very fond of this movie. I think it is a great comedy, and sure it's not for the whole family, in fact, I'd only recommend it to people who enjoy the stupid comedy on Saturday Night Live.

The movie basically goes like this - Doug (Chris Kattan) and Steve Butabi (Will Ferrell) are brothers that try to get into the town's best night club, the Roxbury. Although they aren't successful entering the club on their own, they get help when actor Richard Greico's fancy little sport car rams into the back of Doug and Steve's van. Richard doesn't want the boys to sue him, so he invites them all into the Roxbury as a little appology for the car damage. Doug and Steve meet a few "foxy" ladies, get their freak on with them, and get rejected by them. harsh harsh. then the guys get in a huge argument about all the unfortunate events that happened that day, and doug ends up moving out of their bedroom into the guesthouse right nextdoor. and as steve puts it "I just miss doug" dad says "well he's right next door and that things like a mansion!" steve says "but theres no cable" dad says "sure there is." steve says "BUT THERE'S NO HBO!" haha yeah anyways, steve begings dating the college girl that works in her dad's lamp store next to the brothers father's flower shop. the dad had always been trying to hook steve and the girl up, so in the end they're getting married and.. yeah, you watch the rest yourself.

The music choices in the movie were awesome, pure awesome. the cd is G for Great! anyone who has seen this movie and hates it, hasn't paid enough attention to it. Stop looking for the negatives, and you'll see how funny this movie really is. It isn't meant for the big award shows, remember, it's made for "fun, comedy and entertainment." if you don't enjoy any of those things, DON'T WATCH IT. and DON'T HATE will ferrell or chris kattan, cause they're my homeboys and I love them.

peace
