The dance routine Doug (Chris Kattan) and Steve (Will Ferrell) perform with Cambi (Elisa Donovan) and Vivica (Gigi Rice) at their first night at the Roxbury, is the same as the one Vinnie (Steve Martin) and Barney (Rick Moranis) and two ladies perform in the club scene in My Blue Heaven (1990).

Funny Stuff
4 June 2003 | by lonelyromeo805See all my reviews

Well the first time i saw this film it kind of reminded me of how me and my friend used to joke around and it really made me feel dumb about myself cause something i would act dumb like that too. I really thought this movie was funny in my point of view. The music in this film is probably the best music in any film to me because i love trance and house music so this was a good movie to watch. In the movie Steve and Doug dont even look like brothers but they sure act like it. I love how they do slow moving shots. makes you laugh and wanna watch at the same time wondering what is going to happen. One of the best parts of this movie are the lines, like did you grass my butt, or you outta town you new, aiight. There are plenty of them in the movie and i even use them in everyday life cause its just funny. This movie should be ranked higher in the imdb. In my opinion i give it a 10 rating.
