I now remember why I never bought this movie. It has its moments...barely, but it is really just a dragged-out SNL sketch. I am a big Will Ferrel fan, but this is not his best work.

"This movie just plain makes you feel good. It has excellent, upbeat music, very bright colors, and good hearted, LA slick and easy characters. In short, mindless fun that looks great, moves fast, and keeps your toes tapping. Like the first Austin Powers, this movie has a lovable tone from beginning to end and works great as video and aural wallpaper. While you're choring or reading the paper, lighten up to the music and glance at the screen to get a dose of color and fun. In my opinion, Will Ferrell is very underrated right now. He's got the super-friendly look of the guy that everybody likes but deep back he has some dark reservoir that either boils just below the surface or erupts in a burst. I think his immense likability allows him to go dark and get laughs where other actors might just seem offensive. This is mostly seen on certain SNL skits and "Dick" (where his quick "slowburn" is more classic than Ted Knight's). In Roxbury he is likeable throughout, but a slight glimmer of knowingness seems to filter through the character. He almost seems to be making fun of stupid movies by being stupid and winking at us."

"I think this movie was the most hilarious I have seen in years. Even though it wasn't very popular with a lot of critics, it had me in histerics. I feel Chris Kattan is the funniest in the movie and I believe him to be a very talented comedic entertainer! Will Ferrell was hilarious as well! The two of them together had me almost in tears, I was laughing so damn hard. It's funny, because there are guys that are really like that in the clubs. You know, sitting around dancing with no rythum what so ever and trying to look cool in front of all the ladies. So to watch this film was almost like being there. That is my opinion anyway. I also loved the music they had in this movie. It was very entertaining! Well I feel I explained it all. This movie is a must see! It definately will make you laugh. I say good job to Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell, I looooovvvvvveeee you guys! I would definately see another movie with Chris Kattan in it. What a funny guy!"
The most awesome idiotic comedy movie ever

"I tend to favor movies that have more intellectual stimulation in general (the latest favorites being "Capote", "A History of Violence", "The Constant Gardener")....but this lame movie really makes me laugh out loud so hard that I'm nearly crying and gasping for air. I suppose it must touch a nerve being that I'm from Queens, NYC and that I am overly conscious of the stereotypes and sentiments of the characters in this comedy sketch. I find my enjoyment of this movie to be consistent with another beloved movie, "Dodgeball" (probably because I was always getting hit with dodgeballs growing up as a total nerd) and "Zoolander" (probably because as an urban female, I take fashion too seriously). Anyway I consider this to be one of my favorite movies of all time. I hope you will find it so as well."
