The nightclub scene is so popular that bar hopping is the way to go, or so it seems for Steve (Will Ferrell) and Doug Butabi (Chris Kattan). They think of the clubs that they try to attend as their own personal candy store. Unfortunately the Butabi brothers are not the coolest thing around, so when they try to get a girl, neither of them are successful in their attempts. Considered as nothing but dorks, these boys are like spoiled rich kids that just can't seem to catch a break. The fact that they work for dad may not be the best scenario there is, especially since neither one actually want to work anyway. The problems they have getting into the local clubs are seriously cramping their style and affecting their personal life. The two are planning to open their own nightclub and by their association they end up as marks for a couple of gold diggers, who mistake them for heavy rollers. The brothers end up being bumped from behind by none other than Richard Grieco, who feels like he owes them a favor and gets them an audience with a genuine high roller, who likes the way they are thinking. Amidst all of this, Steve is being cornered into make wedding plans with Emily, and in the process ends up leaving little brother depressed and alone. The comedy plays on through the interactions from these dorky brothers as they try to fit in with other party goers. They eventually get their wish to be part owner of a night club and their ideas end up making them king of the night clubs. There is some measure of drama as the brothers deal with the idea that they will be breaking up the relationship due to the planned marriage. John Fortenberry directs this comedic rendition of The Roxbury and both Will and Chris add their writing skills to the finished product. Loni Anderson (Barbara Butabi), Dan Hedaya (Kamehl Butabi) and Lochlyn Munro (Craig), are just a few of the star studded cast.
