A Night at the Roxbury

Critics Consensus

Has the same problems as the worst SNL movies: one-note characters and plots unreasonably stretched to feature length runtime.

Movie Info

Despite being well into adulthood, brothers Doug (Chris Kattan) and Steve Butabi (Will Ferrell) still live at home and work in the flower shop owned by their dad (Dan Hedaya). They exist only to hit on women at discos, though they're routinely unsuccessful until a chance run-in with Richard Grieco (Richard Grieco) gets them inside the swank Roxbury club. Mistaken for high rollers, they meet their dream women, Vivica (Gigi Rice) and Cambi (Elisa Donovan), and resolve to open a club of their own.

Audience Reviews for A Night at the Roxbury

    If you find this kind of humor funny (which I do for a short time of 82 minutes), then this one-joke, nearly plotless movie should be amusing enough for you, but if you can't stand SNL (or the show's sketch for that matter), then it will probably be a pain to sit through. Be warned.

    A Night at the Roxbury is one of the first Will Ferrell films that I first saw, and I thought it was a pretty decent comedy. The film is fun to watch, and is the only watchable Chris Kattan film. The film is quite simple in its execution. The film provides you with mild laughter, and it works. Although this isn't a memorable comedy, it is lots of fun. As far as a film based on a skit from SNL is concerned, this is one of the better films. Though not perfect, it is a funny flick and is one of those films that should be watched with friends. For what it is, it's a mindless comedy with decent laughs. I enjoyed the ridiculousness of this film, and thought that the leads were pretty good. This was Will Ferrell in his heyday. This is the type of film that he made that actually was funny. Nowadays, Ferrell is hit or miss. But this was made back when he was funny and his career was just warming up. A decent laugh fest that is harmless fun, A Night at the Roxbury makes you laugh, and is quite underrated. Compared to later SNL films, this is among the few that are funny. However, this isn't the greatest of SNL films that honor belongs to Wayne's World 1 and 2. If you're a Will Ferrell fan, check this out. This is one of his earliest best comedies, even if it's nothing great, it's a decent comedy to watch and a mindless good time. A Night at the Roxbury is decent for what it is, and is better than what most people think. Give it a shot, you may enjoy it.

    More of a series of sketches than an actual movie, A Night at the Roxbury has enough funny moments (propelled almost solely by Kattan and Ferrell) to hold it together, at least somewhat. 3/5 Stars

    Doug Butabi: You can take away our phones and you can take away our keys, but you can NOT take away our dreams.  "Score!" A Night at the Roxbury is a rather annoying and highly forgettable comedy. That being said, over the years I have accrued more appreciation for the film. I'm not saying that I like it, but I can find a lot more humor in it than I once could. I like the whole idea of it, what with the clubbing, loser brothers, but the execution is just off, as it is often with ridiculous comedies like this.  Two brothers Doug and Steve still live with their parents. Their father owns a floral shop and wants them to work hard for the family business. Instead, the two spend their time hitting on every woman they see and going clubbing at night. Sounds like fun, but the problem is that they fail at both. They can't get in the clubs and when they do, they are lousy with the women. They lust after one night in the hottest club in town, The Roxbury. Will Farrell and Chris Kattan definitely have good chemistry. The problem is with how their characters are played. Farrell is basically just taken like a slow teenager the whole time, while Kattan looks out the corner of his eyes and scoffs at things. If you can buy into their ridiculous performances, there is fun to be had; it's just not any easy thing to do. I like the supporting cast though.  While A Night at the Roxbury isn't what I'd call a great movie, it has got a place in the world of movies. It's one of those movies that, if you can stand, you watch late at night every once in awhile when you don't want to think about anything. A short runtime and quick paced storyline keeps things moving and makes the movie much more watchable. It will never be considered anything more than a dumb, bad comedy, but still you may want to give it a chance on the off case, you actually could like the humor involved.
