Don't waste your time or money on renting this turkey!

It was funny, visually exciting, and the best soundtrack since "Saturday Night Fever.

It will have you in stitches as you recall your own memories of clubbing - whether you used to be a "dag" yourself (go on, you're a big boy now - you can admit it) or you cringed whenever you witnessed the least likely guys try to pick up the most stunning girls in the club.

As silly as A night at the Roxbury is, it's enjoyable.

However, there are a lot of Hollywood in-jokes in here to offset some lack of plot or lack of integrity in the characters.

This is probably one of THE worst movies I have ever seen...

which actually was quite boring and just plain annoying at some times.

Personally, I enjoyed it tremendously and cannot WAIT to see it again!

By far the best of SNL movies and one of the best comedies ever..Will Ferrell & Chris Kattan have managed to outclass their tv show performances with this unique and hilariously entertaining movie.

This is very short for a comedy, and it runs by very fast, but it was probably a good choice to keep it that length, else it might get very repetitive.

I enjoyed it quite a bit as I am a great fan of SNL.

" Other than that, one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time.

Good talent put to waste with a contrived script.

An awful waste of time.

To call it one of the worst movies ever made would only give it more attention than it deserves.......

A night at the Roxbury was vapid, uninteresting, and BORING.

It is also entertaining.

The plot is very thin, there's not much to it outside of Kattan/Farrell's rompings, but it is enjoyable and somewhat unique.

Don't waste your money!!!

Totally unexpected.. best humor ever........

That's a step above mildly entertaining.

It does feature some very good disco music; somewhat likable leads; an entertaining supporting cast - from the parents (Dan Hedyaa and Loni Anderson are a hoot!

I love how they do slow moving shots.

What a waste of money.

one of the stupidest and most pointless movies, ever!!!.

I really enjoyed it.

But it will repeat them again and again later in the film which make you fall asleep so fast.

" make the movie even more enjoyable.

Overall this is an Unfunny tiresome film that I say you pass on unless you have something better to do.

The movie is boring.

Every buddy cliché is in tact with a predictable outcome.

This has got to be one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, Steve and Doug Butabi make the movie very entertaining as they constantly bop their heads to the song "What is love" by Haddaway.

The story isn't to much to care about, it's the situations that arise wherever the two brothers show up that makes the movie worth watching.

Also featuring Loni Anderson who obviously had an empty schedule the week she was offered this tripe.

Night at the Roxbury is surprisingly entertaining.

What I saw was unbearable, unfunny and uninteresting.

But since when has something had to be good to be enjoyable?

Amusing, funny, and enjoyable to watch over and over.

Most of the Saturday Night live movies are pretty lame in my opinion, as they get too tiresome too quickly, and I just don't find 2 morons bopping there heads throughout amusing, plus Thankfully Will Ferrell has moved onto bigger and better things.

this is the absolute worst movie that i have ever seen in my entire life .

What a waste of time.

I highly recommend it!


Having said that, I must confess that even though both lead actors rely considerably on the show to generate the humour, there are quite a few scenes which are fairly original and entertaining.

The soundtrack is great no doubt about that, and it has a decent cast, but the problem is gets too tiresome way too quickly and never once did I laugh out loud, plus The ending was pretty stupid in my opinion.

It's a little cute at times but mostly it's boring.

It has good cameos and is unpredictable.

The acting is bad, the music is tedious and annoying, the plot reeked of that brown stuff.

Proof positive of why SNL has been unwatchable for the past 15 years.

One of the Worst Movies Ever Made .

All in all a very entertaining and somewhat touching movie.

Lots of funny moments and you easily got immersed in the characters portrayed in the movie.

A waste of time .

So terribly dull from start to end, this definitely lives up to my list of 1998's bottom ten Hollywood stinkers!

It's an enjoyable, light hearted comedy with some very witty dialogue and acting.

The third act of the picture is a right-off with the brothers getting into a predictable fight and Doug moving into the guest house.

"A Night At The Roxbury" was one of the worst movies that I have ever seen.

Don't waste your time, money or energy watching this film .

Don't waste your time.

Although this film will never become a classic of cinematography, and although it will not be remembered as one of the funniest movies to hit the screen, i enjoyed it and recommend it to those that enjoy simple comedy films such as Dumb and Dumber.

Worst Movie Ever .


It's entertaining.

A waste of time, talent and money.

Childish acting; nonsense dialogue; cliche plot, such as it is.

The guys who play the Butabi brothers are okay but for me this played like a boring Wayne's World knockoff.

This is an excellent film, entertaining throughout.

So why would Joe Shmo over in Mississipi find this movie to be boring.

The holes created by stretching the dead-horse TV skit to movie length were too big to be filled-in by boring cliches already shriveled from years of overuse.

Most of the comedies now days are just either plain stupid, or too confusing that you have to think.
