Synopsis


Beerfest
Two guys used to drinking beer for fun suddenly become fierce competitors in a sort of Lager Olympics in this over-the-top comedy. Todd Wolfhouse (Erik Stolhanske) and his brother Jan (Paul Soter) are from a German-American family but have never visited the Old Country until their grandfather dies and they fly to Germany to scatter his ashes. Todd and Jan arrive during the annual Oktoberfest celebration and accidentally discover a secret competition, "Beerfest," in which the world's leading beer guzzlers determine who can handle the most brew during several days of heated drinking games. Todd and Jan are no slouches when it comes to downing suds and offer to compete, but the German branch of the family, the Von Wolfhausens, scoff at their desire to enter the contest and inform them no mere American could hope to carry away the Beerfest honors. Determined to prove Yanks can swill beer and embarrass themselves just as well as anyone, Todd and Jan bring their most skilled drinking buddies to Germany to defend America's honor on the field of drunken battle and show their German relatives that the family's talent didn't vanish when they crossed the pond. Beerfest was written and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, and several other Broken Lizard members pop up in the film's cast, as do Will Forte, Mo'nique, Cloris Leachman, and Jürgen Prochnow. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A great broken lizard drunken comedy

    This film is nothing more than you would expect from Broken Lizard at this point. It isn't quite as good as super troopers, but it is far better than Club Dread. So, if you liked the movie then you will be happy to know that the picture quality is quite good. However, the audio is lossy dolby digital 5.1. That isn't to say that the sound track isn't good. In short, fans of the movie will like this Blu-ray.

    This is an absolute Hilarious movie with some great one liners. This movie was made by the same guys that made Super Troopers, but for some reason it was not as popular as Super Troopers. In my opinion it was just as funny as Super Troopers. But Any way this is a Hilarious film that will keep you laughing from beginning to end, great movie to purchase becasue you will want to watch it more than once.

    A bit of that "dumb" humor, but used in a way that make this a unique and treasured comedy along with its counter part Super Troopers. The guys in these movies have their own style and thats what makes these movies unforgettable. This movie on blu ray and at a great low price makes it a must add to your movie collection.

    The movie is about who can drink the fastest and largest amount of beer during competitions while in Germany for Octoberfest. The Germans vs the Americans as the two teams fight over the recipe for the best beer ever. Comical at some points and bizarre at others, Beerfest is sure to be a cult classic.

    I picked this up out of the $5 bin, which renders my only complaint (lack of digital copy) moot--if you have to ask, you can't afford it. Broken Lizard really nailed it again with this one. Looking forward to super troopers 2. wish they would put more movies out.

    First was Supertroopers...

    And everyone loved it; then there was Club Dread, and nobody loved it; then came Beerfest and and I don't even know if anyone saw it. Ultimately though, I'd say Beerfest is probably about equal to Supertroopers. In some ways Supertroopers is much better, but in other ways Beerfest is better. It's hard to decide if one is actually better overall.

    The guys from broken lizard did it again, after their break out hit Supertroopers, the boys come back with another "guys" movie and crush it out of the park with Beerfest, lots of drinking games, and drunkin behavior that will tug at the heart strings of any group of friends who just like to drink and play drinking games.

    When my college buddies and I wanted to get drunk and have a good laugh, this was one of our go-to movies. Instant comedy classic that is very underappreciated. I still quote this movie on a regular basis.
