A Night at the Roxbury is not as bad as one would expect from another Saturday Night Live skit adapted for the big screen. However, we're not saying it's worth the price of admission. A look on video is more like it. The Butabi brothers, Steve (Ferrell) and Doug (Kattan), spend their days toiling away in their father's fake-flower store, but at night, they don their best Euro-wannabe togs and hit the chic streets of LA, hoping that they'll be lucky enough to land in the ultra-hot Roxbury. A fender-bender with Richard Grieco (playing himself) lands them admission to the club (and keeps the actor out of a lawsuit), but their newfound hipness may well drive a wedge in their brotherly bond.
