Broad strokes comedy in which fat characters are hot dog eating champions and Germans are a beer-chugging cross between Captain von Trapp, Hitler and Heidi

It's not for everyone, but this delivers pretty much everything you could be expecting from a film called Beerfest.

Fans of Broken Lizard's previous work will enjoy this beer-fuddled effort; for anyone else it has its moments, but is best watched through beer-goggles.

"Beerfest" doesn't offer much more than a keg of cheap laughs %u2014 but that's something worth drinking to.

Beerfest is what it is, silliness that entertains at its own lowbrow level.

Drunkenness, binge drinking and German-hating have never seemed so appealing.

In the end, the group's low-key charm is what makes this strange brew of frat-house comedy, sports movie and triumph-of-the-underdog tale go down smoothly.

The tone of Beerfest is like South Park if they did an episode only about the adults in South Park... Even real German actors put on ridiculous accents.

I felt oddly respected: Neck-deep in barley and boobs, marinated in urine, Beerfest panders shamelessly to the 15-year-old in this 30-year-old... without assuming he is a 15-year-old.

The Broken Lizard comedy troupe's fourth feature is funnier than you might imagine.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Because it's basically sketch comedy, it suffers from that unevenness that comes from trying to string a bunch of sketches together to form a cohesive whole. It is also ribald, outrageous, shameless, and oddly warmhearted.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

It's fun-dumb and definitely not everyone's cup of tea -- I don't want to oversell it -- but Broken Lizard keeps it interesting by refusing to color inside the lines, creating their own silly little universe.

This movie will be as essential to the DKE house as a Sharpie for writing jokes on a passed-out brother; it's pure guy humor.

Thanks to Broken Lizard, beer drinkers finally have a movie to call their own%u2026 and it kicks ***.
