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
The story of two wealthy brothers, Steve and Doug Butabi who are trying to get into the hottest club in town, The Roxbury. Unfortunately, the boys are complete and utter losers and have no chance of getting in. However, after the boys get into a little fender bender with Richard Grieco (played by himself), their luck starts to turn around. Based on the popular Saturday Night Live skit
#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.
" I was like, "Emiliooooo."
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.
A Night at the Roxbury is your generic SNL featured film, poorly written characters and filled with unnecessary segments to lengthen feature time.
I was much more entertained than by what the rating shows, because obviously this isn't that great of a movie. But it's VERY entertaining. There's no way this should have been that funny. But it kind of was:D Will Ferrell's and Chris Kattan's insanely stupid onscreen chemistry is rather wonderful.
Great laugh , great soundtrack . WF always on top .
Steve and Doug have a dream: to unveil the Roxbury. They try and try to make this dream come true but they are stopped by the list. But luck knocks at their door, or crashes in the back of the car and they get their ticket to a new life.
Completely ridiculous and totally over the top, but A Night at the Roxbury and its caricatural leading men end up being quite funny and ultimately winning you over in the end.
I probably rate this story of these two wannabes trying to get into the hottest club way too high, but most of the silly jokes - and casting just for the heck of it (Richard Grieco!) - made me chuckle quite a bit. A great late night comedy to sip a beer along with. So yeah, this one totally delivers.
The dance moves are incredible. The fashion is incredible. Everything is incredible.
I had forgotten that this was a recurring Saturday Night Live skit before it was a movie. If I'd remembered that going in, I might not have gone in.
Not a lot to this - two brothers, rooming together in their parents' house on the wrong side of 25, who are idiotically fearless about hitting on women in nightclubs; not quite rapey about it, but aggressive enough to rub up against that, vigorously. But they appear to be so used to immediate rejection that they pretty much shut down whenever any woman doesn't immediately blow them off.
That's an awfully thin line to hang a whole movie onto, but hung on it this is; nobody gets mixed up with international…
A Night at the Roxbury is one of those comedies that is so ridiculously absurd that it's funny. Not every joke lands and it tends to be almost too stupid to be funny, but in the end I think it's an alright attempt at ridiculous comedy. If you're a fan of outrageous stupidity, you'll love this film, if you can't stand that stuff stay far away, and for those of us in between you just have to see it to decide.
I have always loved this movie and I always will.
Quite enjoyable but i feel Ferrell hadn't reached his full potential at this stage. Its got Haddaway so you know its good.
Each week I'll post a new letter and all you have to do is nominate a film that you think…
This is a list of my all time favorite films. These are films that I deeply love, have much appreciation…
