Our Score
Beware movies based on comedy sketches as, with very few exceptions (Wayne's World being one), they are rarely very good. This tale, based on a Saturday Night Live skit about two dumber-than-dumb, sexist brothers trying to get into the coolest clubs in LA, is utterly devoid of any redeeming features. The actors (Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan) are irritating, the script is humourless, and at under an hour-and-a-half it is still 80 minutes too long. The highlight amid the gloom? A mildly amusing spoof of the "you complete me" scene from Jerry Maguire. By the time it appears, though, you will have already abandoned this as a lost cause.

Summary

Two dim-witted brothers dream of getting into the Roxbury, the most fashionable nightclub in Los Angeles, but get turned away every time. Happily, an incident with a movie star finally paves their way inside, only for them to end up the target of two gold-diggers who have mistaken the pair for wealthy businessmen. Comedy, with Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan.
