    The sad thing about A Night at the Roxbury is that the characters are in a one-joke movie, and they're the joke.
  2. One could criticize A Night at the Roxbury for being a comedy that provides not a single laugh. That would be too easy.

    Every once in a while, a movie comes along that is so boring and pointless, that those faithful movie-goers who never walk out on a film have to find some alternative to watching the mind- numbing stupidity unfolding on the screen.

    Steve and Doug's story just isn't funny, and it would take far better writing than Kattan, Ferrell and Steve Koren can muster to make it less than an ordeal.

    Its forced slapstick egregiously mugs the audience for laughs.
  6. What is love? Haddaway asks in the omnipresent soundtrack song. Not this time-wasting bilge, that's for sure.
  7. The lame-o aspects of the whole campy setup are still lame-o.
  8. I will admit that this TV skit stretched out to a filament-thin 83 minutes is idiotic, but I mean that in a good way.

    The track record of SNL-drawn movies is dire ("It's Pat," "Stuart Saves His Family," "Blues Brothers 2000"), and this one stands just a peg higher, as an amiable, if flyweight, di-version.
  10. Kattan and Ferrell do their best to fill out the shallow Butabis.

    A lot like the brothers themselves: undeniably pathetic but strangely lovable. Still, do you really want to spend an hour and a half with them in a dark room?

    Two obnoxious, swaggering brothers -- whose sexual naivete is supposed to make them endearing as well as pathetic -- find happiness in this more schmaltzy than funny Saturday Night Live spin-off.

    That Amy Heckerling produced and, supposedly, had an uncredited hand in scripting this turkey is the saddest thing I've heard all year.

    Running a mere 83 minutes, A Night At The Roxbury still feels like an eternity spent in bad high-concept-movie hell.

I felt embarrassed for the actors while watching this, the jokes were so lame. Unless your an 8 year old with down syndrome, I do not recommend it for anyone. Full Review »

It's definitely dumb, and the characters definitely don't have depth, but somehow it's still sort of amusing. There were a couple of scenes that were actually sort of funny, like the wedding being interrupted with "Baby don't hurt me", and Will Ferrel was definitely very committed to his idiotic character. But really, that's about it. There's not that much here on either side of the equation, painful or inspired. So in the end it "don't hurt me" that much, but it doesn't do much else either.
