A Night at the Roxbury is my favorite Will Ferrell movie
It may have taken the Butabi Brothers seven years to graduate from high school, but now they've realized there's more to life than working in their father's silk plant store. Their goal is to get into L.A.'s #1 night spot - the elegant Roxbury Club- and become movers and shakers in today's happening night club scene. Steve (Will Ferrell) and Doug (Chris Kattan) are determined to prove that for the first time in their lives, they are really worth something. They set out to prove their manhood by gooing through the ultimate rite of passage, getting into the A-club- the Roxbury - and maybe, someday, even running a club of their own. But they're not on the Roxbury guest list, so Doug and Steve are stuck on the sidewalk - as Doug complains, "A-club people leading a B-club life" - until they roll into a fender bender with a club regular, litigation-phobic actor Richard Grieco (himself), who escorts them right into the Roxbury! They make contact with the Roxbury's successful and influentail owner, Mr. Zadir, Who agrees to a meeting to discuss their "bound-to-happen" concepts for new clubs. That same night at the Roxbury, Doug and Steve get picked-up by a pair of fortune-hunters, Cambi (Elisa Donovan) and Vivica (Gigi Rice), who mistake them for fat cats. They pair up for some wild dancing and move on to an exclusive party at Zadir's plush residence. Will Doug and Steve strike it rich in clubland or cause gridlock in the fast lane? Whatever happens, life will never be the same for the Roxbury Guys - or for their angry, practical-minded father (Dan Hedaya); his pampered, jewelry-prone wife (Loni Anderson); or their young, seemingly shy neighbor Emily (Molly Shannon) who , in reality, is hell-bent on manipulating Steve into marriage and their daddies' brilliant new venture - a lamps-and-plants business.
