Kattan alleged that Ferrell had said "so, I got all your messages, but I didn't call you back because I didn't want to talk to you." See more »

Funny movie with a great storyline!
1 March 2003 | by Margaux1See all my reviews

I reluctantly rented this movie for my husband. He wanted to see it at the theatre but I didn't want to - I had never seen SNL (which DOES make a difference. If you don't know the skit, you don't really 'get it'). So one night I picked up some movies, including this one - and I became hooked!

I could NOT stop laughing. I thought it was so funny. I loved their clothes and their hair looked great. Since then I've seen this movie a million times!

One of the things I liked best about this movie is that it really WAS tastefully done. There was virtually no swearing in it, and no sex scenes (which disgust me). It almost seems like they were discouraging vulgarity...I had to respect Chris Kattan when his 'one night stand' (Eliza Donovan) said "Yeah, yeah, yeah. Joanie loves Chachi. But does Chachi give a flying - f*** about Joanie?" He kind of looked at her and made a face that showed he was turned off by her language.

I would actually feel comfortable enough to let my 2 year old see it (which she has and she's decided she has a crush on 'Crissattan'.)

The boys come from a close-knit family with money. But somehow, they don't see any of it. They look nice when they go out and it's cool to see brothers who are so close. Will Ferrell is a tremendous talent. The music is AWESOME! :)

I cannot STAND Molly Shannon. I don't even understand how she got on SNL in the first place. She is just AWFUL. She's unattractive, perverted, and all of her characters on SNL just seem to be the same.

In all, this was a terrific movie. I loved it! Just watch it with an open mind and remember that it's a SILLY COMEDY, not an Academy Award Winner!
