Product Overview

With their iridescent suits, gold chains and sideburns, the Butabi Brothers (Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan) are confident they're cool enough to go wherever the night takes them. But the doormen at L.A.'s hottest clubs think not, and keep them out on the street--until a fortunate accident ushers them into the ultra-hip Roxbury Club and into a life they once only dreamed about.

Editors Note
Note Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell reprise their roles as Steve and Doug Butabi, two pathetic brothers who try to work their way onto the list of one of Hollywood's hippest nightclubs. Their biggest dream is to open their own club--the problem is they can't get into an existing one to see what it looks like. When two supermodels latch onto Steve and Doug thinking they've found the financial gravy train, it takes them some time to find out the truth about they state of the boys' bank accounts. Based on characters created by Kattan and Ferrell for a sketch on TV's Saturday Night |Live.

ReviewSource Variety
Review One of the few reliably funny recurrent skits on "Saturday Night Live" in recent years has had Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan as two seemingly coke-addicted, desperately "hip" losers who trawl through Manhattan clubland, rebuffed over and over by all womankind. Of course, a three-minute sketch is one thing, a feature another. The track record of "SNL"-drawn movies is dire ("It's Pat," "Stuart Saves His Family," "Blues Brothers 2000"), and this one stands just a peg higher, as an amiable, if flyweight, di-version...Pacing is tight, and the aptly disco-tawdry saturated colors in lensing and design work are punched up to intended gaudy effect. For the record, director John Fortenberry ("Jury Duty") replaced original helmer Peter Markle after two weeks' shooting. Also, the titular club on the Sunset Strip has since gone the way of the Imperial Gardens and the Players Club before it at the same location, and is now a Japanese eatery.
