The boys of Broken Lizard have no shame. That's what their fans like about them.

Beerfest is one sloppy comedy, but the lads of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard don't know when to say when in their pursuit of the idiotic laugh.

You'd have to be drunk to appreciate Beerfest. Really drunk. So sloshed that you don't know which way is up or down. So wasted that the dull and overlong seems witty and sharp.

If belching and beer games make you laugh, Beerfest should be on your A-list. But don't see it sobe

Beerfest is tedious and, at 112 minutes, too long to sustain a sophomoric, one-joke comedy even for the presumed target audience of older male teens and the college-age crowd.

Even in a wacky, stupid comedy like this you have to have some thread of a plot.

An hour and 50 minutes! Were they trying for the War and Peace of chugger flicks?

These guys look like a bunch of accountants making movies on their smoke break, and Beerfest isn't made to please anybody but their fraternity brothers still chained to their Peter Pan Syndrome.

This ode to the mass consumption of tasty brews is out of bubbles. Drink up before you see it, you'll need the buzz.

Beerfest wants to run aimlessly amok in its chaotic craziness but this whole sordid affair is so sloppily conceived that it couldn't even walk a crooked line.

Beerfest is a film that appears to have been conceived on the back of a beermat and its trashy direction, nonexistent plot and dismal comic mugging would seem to suggest that preparations progressed no further.

Friends don't let friends drive a great comedy premise into the ground by making it too long, humorless and flat. The drinking stories you tell your friends are funnier.

If you're not amused by German accents or burping, this probably isn't your movie.

funny when it goes for outrageous and farcical, but tedious when it displays the originality of a Kevin Federline rap.

Bound to spark laughs, but the film as a whole is annoyingly underdeveloped.

This tepid celebration of binge drinking goes flat fast.

...aggressively, rampantly, jaw-droppingly dull.

Making a comedy that celebrates binge drinking and cretinous behavior isn't a crime against nature. Making one that's as brutally unfunny as Beerfest is.

Beerfest won't kill you, but unless you're in a certain brew-guzzling youth demographic, you might find yourself wondering why you're not laughing at this helping of bad-news beers.
