Review of A Night at the Roxbury (1998)

I kind of wanted this movie to be one of those which I would never see. I felt like an entire movie based off of an SNL script is a dumb idea. It obviously didn't work for 'Superstar' so why would it work now?

A good friend of mine (I love her to death) wanted her boyfriend (who is one of my roomates) to watch it. So, I just sat and watched it. Good idea? Not really.

This entire movie has ANNOYING characters, and I'm talking every character. There was not a single character that I didn't want to punch in the face.

The dialog was horrible and predictable as well as the story.

I feel bad about this film because the SNL short is quite funny and part of comedy history. This film just massacres it with an unnessesary story.

I gave it 2 stars overall, ONLY because the jokes were well placed. Even though some of the jokes in the movie ruined the original jokes from the SNL skit.

Overall: This movie is so dumb. I feel like I lost some IQ points watching it. It also ruined the original skit for me, I don't think I can laugh at it again. If I had a chance to rewind time, or train my brain to just blank out watching this film, I totally would. As far as my roomate and his girlfriend (I still love them), they enjoyed the hell out of it. Then again my roomate is well known to have a horrid taste in movies (imo). He seems to hate all the movies I love, and love all the movies I hate. Countless arguments have been thrown around the house which I end up just letting go over my head because he is also well known for being a troll. This review is totally dedicated to him.
