Here is a list taken from the very funny book of the same list title these films span from 1970's…
A Night at the Roxbury
Despite being well into adulthood, brothers Doug and Steve Butabi still live at home and work in the flower shop owned by their dad. They exist only to hit on women at discos, though they're routinely unsuccessful until a chance run-in with Richard Grieco gets them inside the swank Roxbury club. Mistaken for high rollers, they meet their dream women, Vivica and Cambi, and resolve to open a club of their own.
John Fortenberry's "A Night at the Roxbury" is a fun and forgettable comedy. Based on the Saturday Night Live characters famed for club-hopping and quick rejections, the film is good-natured fluff full of harmless sass and inconsequential energy. There is a steady supply of silly laughs, but they amount only to empty cinematic calories.
Starring Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell as Doug and Steve Wutabi, the film follows the two through a series of misadventures including the requisite collisions with the LA club scene and bobbing of heads to Haddaway. There is not a lot going on narratively beyond the brothers' shot opening their own club and romancing the ladies, but the brothers put on an affable show. Kattan and…
#28 in my 99 90's: Part 2 marathon.
So: thanks to Mystery Men, 200 Cigarettes, 54, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, and The Wedding Singer, the late 90's officially killed the Original Soundtrack film. Now, unless the movie was pimping a cover (which happened a lot), the glory days of the mid-80's soundtrack were dead. (Although, frankly, after "My Heart Will Go On" and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and half a dozen offerings by Will Smith, who didn't want to put that dog down themselves?) (And mount its carcass on their wall as a trophy?) To be replaced with the pining-for-yesteryear Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction retro soundtrack as a rule. Some movies, and shows, found an…
I love this movie.
And there's nothing you can do to stop that...
Michonne would take care of those heads REAL quick.
Yesterday I just pushed play on this cult classic to help me sleep. I just love this shitty movie to death. The moronic, kind hearted dancing Butabi brothers are great goddamn fun! Kattan and Farrell are hilarious as the brothers. They worked so well together. Fuck the plot. It's just a collection of funny scenes that I've grown to love. Check out the late Clarke Duncan as the bodyguard and a very young Eva Mendes in short funny scenes. The Emilio Estevez story just kills me. "Emiliooooo!" Molly Shannon also shines as the horny girl in lust. Dan Hedaya does his usual thing as the angry dad with a couple of crazy dogs named Captain and Tenille. Hahaha! Retarded good time.
" I was like, "Emiliooooo."
Still hilarious. And also ridiculous. But mainly hilarious.
The thing about comedies is, if the style of humor in a film doesn't get ya then you probably won't like it very much. I think that's why comedies are hit or miss so often. Just a thought.
Love Night at the Roxbury though. Hilarious.
Few things are better than Chazz Palminteri asking (with great conviction) "you touch my butt?"
Okay, so it's not what I'd call "great cinema" - but it certainly inspires a fair number of giggles.
Chris Katan and Will Ferrell save this movie from its terrible script. If you're looking to be transported back to the nineties, the music and fashion will take you back like few other movies can.
Also, appreciate how stunning Elisa Donovan is in this movie.
A perfectly fluffy 90s movie; fun and incredibly quotable.
First film of 2016- fell asleep before it ended.
Este par de inadaptados, creyéndose la última sorpresa de la fiesta, fueron la mejor despedida de año: Entre ridiculosidad y una banda sonora espectacular, es imposible dejar de bailar...aunque sea con los dedos. What is love!?
I'm not too familiar with the SNL sketch that spawned this film, apart from that gif of them with Jim Carrey rocking out in the car to What Is Love. So I had no nostalgic attachment to this film and I found it quite stupid overall. There were some funny moments but the two leads are so idiotic.
I did love the soundtrack however. I love that early 90s dance music. The music itself made me nostalgic.
It should've stayed as an SNL skit.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like this one. I tried hard to like it, but it just wasn't funny for me. None of the jokes worked and I didn't think it was entertaining.
If you like it, whatever. But I don't see much in this, and I'm sorry.
This is the second part of my list of watched movies, this list carries on from June 1999 to the…
Most of these are aggressively mediocre, but some are truly bad. And I will never see them.
