Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
Unapologetically crude, offensive and politically incorrect, this raucous comedy is certainly not for everyone. But those with an appreciation for German accents and lots of breasts, booze and burps might be amused.

The latest comedy from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe follows two American brothers: Jan (Paul Soter "The Dukes of Hazzard") and Todd (Erik Stolhanske "The Dukes of Hazzard") who, in returning their grandfather’s ashes to Germany, stumble upon an underground, international beer drinking competition called Beerfest.

They meet their German cousins, professional drinkers who insult their grandfather and drink the Americans under the table. Their depression is short-lived when they return home to Colorado and decide to assemble a drinking posse to confront the Germans. The group includes a hot dog eating champion known as “Landfill” (Kevin Heffernan "The Dukes of Hazzard"), a nerdy, overtly Jewish scientist (Steve Lemme "The Dukes of Hazzard"), and a male prostitute (Jay Chandrasekhar, the movie’s director "The Dukes of Hazzard").

The five men spend a year drinking beer and crashing house parties in preparation for next years Octoberfest. The stakes get higher when a cherished beer recipe and hurt feelings enter the equation. Can the men overcome these odds? There are a handful of very funny scenes, such as when a hung over Chandrasekhar awakens naked next to a dead deer, and when a funeral for a friend becomes an improbable rallying cry for the U.S. team.

But Beerfest is not nearly as funny as their earlier "Super Troopers," but it’s aso not quite as atrocious as the laugh-deficient "Club Dread." As an added bonus you get to see Cloris Leachman ("Young Frankenstein") in her do-anything-for-a-laugh mode, playing her 2000th crazy lady. Ultimately, Beerfest provides drinking fans with just enough laughs to keep them entertained and it's guaranteed to have a long, healthy after-life at universities around the country simply because it's full of boozing, burping and breasts.
