A Night at the Roxbury
This comedy extends and embellishes characters introduced on Saturday Night Live by regulars Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan in their sketch series of two head-bobbing losers who go on the town, looking for action, when they hear the What Is Love? disco tune. Looking cool, brothers Steve (Ferrell) and Doug Butabi (Kattan) always fail to pick up women in their hapless nightclub jaunts.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The lame-o aspects of the whole campy setup are still lame-o."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Shun this witless showcase for the Saturday Night Live double act of Ferrell and Kattan."
‑ , Time Out
"It would take far better writing than Kattan, Ferrell and Steve Koren can muster to make it less than an ordeal."
‑ Sandra Contreras, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Depois de um tempo, parei de prestar atenção na história (hein?) e me concentrei na boa trilha sonora. Além disso, o filme é curto o bastante para não se tornar intolerável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"An amiable, if flyweight, diversion."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A Night at the Roxbury probably never had a shot at being funny anyway, but I don't think it planned to be pathetic. It's the first comedy I've attended where you feel that to laugh would be cruel to the characters."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"based on this, i did not expect ferrell to make it big"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"relentlessly silly"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Low-impact fun for the indiscriminate viewer."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"More schmaltzy than funny."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Basically a longer version of its poster."
‑ Paul Tatara, CNN.com
"Not exactly highbrow stuff, but who ever said a comedy needed to be highbrow to enjoy?"
‑ Jason Zingale, Bullz-Eye.com
"One thin joke stretched over 80-some tiring minutes."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"making a skit 30 times as long does not necessarily mean you've made it 30 times as funny; despite scattered laughs 'Roxbury' feels overextended..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
