Great movie

Honestly, probably one of the best late night comedies you could watch. If you don’t like hanging out with your friends and you’re not a dude you’ll probably hate this movie. If you like drinking, naked girls, dirty jokes and a have a sense of brotherhood you’ll love this movie.

Funny movie, crude humor but worth the watch. I dont think there is really anything wrong with the movie. I mean the name itself should be a sign for parents to not let their kids watch it until they reach the age of reason.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Beerfest delivers exactly what you might expect from the five-member Broken Lizard sketch comedy team (Super Troopers, Club Dread). You've got the scatological, gross-out sex and jokes; physical hi-jinks, and endless yukking it up over drinking and drunkenness. Fans of the group will appreciate the obnoxiousness, but all the audacity is less "transgressive" of social norms than conventional.

Mostly, Beerfest consists of training montages (drinking), boy bonding montages (more drinking), and occasional references to other movies (Wolf, Das Boot, Witness for the Prosecution, any film that includes recruiting an elite squad). As it goes about broadly satirizing sports movie cliches, the movie also provides bouts of drama: All of the guys end up having some kind of personal trauma to deal with or get over.
