Review by Andrew Manning (9/98)

Release: 1998, Paramount
Starring: Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan
Director: John Fortenberry & Peter Markle
MPAA Rating: [PG-13]
Genre: Comedy


The misadventures of two nightclubbing idiots (Ferrell and Kattan). Based on one of the most repetitive skits on the dying years of Saturday Night Live.


Ferrell and Kattan do what they can to imbue their characters with personalities. It takes a bit of work, considering that they rarely talk on SNL and aren't on for more than a few minutes. The antics get a little goofy, but they manage to pull of some laughs.


On rare occasions, movies based on Saturday Night Live skits work. Wayne's World was an example. That's because Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey are both funny and talented comedians, Wayne and Garth were interesting characters, and the skits had new material week after week. But the Roxbury guys? Gimme a break. They dance to the same damned song every time they appear, and they're not even funny. I can't stand watching them for five minutes let alone a hundred and five minutes.

You take two of the lamest characters from some of the worst years of Saturday Night Live, stretch out their one joke into a full movie, and you've got a wickedly bad situation. Fans of stupid SNL movies based on unappealing characters may enjoy A Night at the Roxbury, but be warned that this one is up there with Stuart Saves His Family and It's Pat: The Movie.

Rating: 2.5 out of 10 (0=Abysmal, 5=Average, 10=Excellent)
