A Night at the Roxbury ★½ 1998 (PG-13)

The Bubati brothers, like so many Saturday Night Live veterans before them, make the leap to the big screen with limited success. Steve and Doug (Ferrell and Kattan) continue their fruitless quest to gain entrance into the hallowed Roxbury night club. Their luck changes when they get into a fender bender with former “21 Jump Street” star Richard Grieco (playing himself), who gets them in. Typical of the SNL skits-to-big-screen formula, the bit works as a three-minute sketch but isn't funny or interesting enough to sustain even its meager 82 minute running time. 83m/C VHS, DVD . Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan, Molly Shannon, Dan Hedaya, Loni Anderson, Richard Grieco, Elisa Donovan, Lochlyn Munro, Dwayne Hickman, Mark McKinney; D: John Fortenberry; W: Steve Koren, Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan; C: Francis Kenny; M: David Kitay.
