Trivia

During the scuffle at the first Beefest, Rolf says "Do it, come on kill me, what are you waiting for?!" This is a reference to 'Predator' where Arnold Schwarneneggar's character says the same thing to the Predator when he is using himself as bait in the deadfall trap. See more »

"If you attempt to drink this much... You Will Die"
25 August 2006 | by IamtheRegalTreatmentSee all my reviews

When the movie opened with warning labels like this, you know you're ready for a great movie. Beerfest was top notch of it's class. Drinking beer for sport is a classic money maker; I'm surprised this wasn't made sooner! We know that almost every partier will go out and spend money to see this movie, and they should. This movie is great for learning new games and getting wasted fast. This is a perfect example of a movie that is not for younger audiences.

Beerfest has all you need for a good movie: comedy, plot, creative thought process, Beer and women... lots of women. The typical frat party kind of movie where you watch it then go out with buddies and wake up the next morning forgetting that you even saw it. This show is worth watching because of it's great comedy. The creators of Super Troopers should be proud to have a good sister movie.

8/10.
