One review

  • A Night at the Roxbury… I loved this movie incredibly the first time I saw it because it seemed to be the story of my relationship with my own sister embodied in a film. With such amazingly hilarious actors as Will Farrell and Chris Kattan, and also Molly Shannon, how could anyone pass up the opportunity to at least watch it once?

    The whole idea of two regular, lazy, semi-lame guys trying to fulfill a small but radical dream while following the right paths in life is very appealing to me. But that’s not to say it’s not a film for adults… Indeed, there was some “profanity,” but I’d say it was relatively minor and only added to the hilarity of it all. I think what really got me was the soundtrack for this film, in particular the recurring dance song “What Is Love?” by Haddaway. By the end of the movie, it becomes sort of an anthem. It’s almost strange to find yourself watching these two younger men and their rich but meandering lifestyle and think “Man, I wish I could do that!”

    Overall, I’d say this movie is guaranteed to make you laugh IF your comedy preferences are not too strict. And it’s even better if you watch it with your friends, because it makes a lot of inside jokes! I’d suggest this movie to anyone looking for a good Will Farrell/Chris Kattan movie, especially if you have your own brother or sister to relate it to.
