Think ‘Something About Mary’ meets ‘Animal House’ with the plot of just about any sports movie ever made, add some hops and barley and you’ve got yourself ‘Beerfest’. Burp. Burp. Burp. Hoorah!

Think ‘Something About Mary’ meets ‘Animal House’ with the plot of just about any sports movie ever made, add some hops and barley and you’ve got yourself ‘Beerfest’. Burp. Burp. Burp. Hoorah!

This uninhibited no-holds-barred comedy does anything – and everything – for a laugh. Watching Gam Gam (octogenarian academy award winner Cloris Leachman) manhandle a German sausage in the traditional way is worth the price of admission alone. Don’t know if Nana agreed.

American brothers Todd and Jan Wolfhouse (Erik Stolhanske and Paul Soter) stumble into an underground Olympic beer drinking competition only to be humiliated and beaten by the German team. They return home, vowing to beat the Germans at next year’s Beerfest. They put together a hilarious team of loser underdogs (Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, and Steve Lemme) and, well, from there on it pretty much follows the storyline of, um, ‘Rocky 4’ – but instead of punching pugilists, they’re pounding pilsners. No opportunity was missed for a parody, toilet humor or ostensibly gratuitous boobage (there’s $7 of entertainment just there).

The only thing more outrageous than the story is the story behind the story. In 2002, the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, while touring to promote ‘Super Troopers’ found themselves challenging a bunch of locals to a drink-off in an Australian beer tent. After being humiliated and beaten by the Aussies, they return home vowing to create a movie based on the experience, which, in some strange way makes ‘Beerfest’ almost a documentary.

This is a hilarious, silly, bawdy guy flick that comes complete with a “Don’t do this at home or you will die” warning at the beginning. Take your buddy, or your dad, or your parole officer, but probably a good idea to leave the kids and non-tattooed women at home for this one.

A keg of laughs!
