Movie Review: Beerfest (2006)

Film Title: Beerfest 
Length: 1h and 50 min 
Released: 2006
Genre:  Comedy
Rating: R
Where I Got It: Netflix


Two brothers travel to Germany for Oktoberfest, only to stumble upon a secret, centuries-old competition described as a "Fight Club" with beer games.


Ooooo what to say about this piece of cinema? It was for sure a random watch on a cloudy day that needed some comedy. My friend suggested this and thus we watched it. 

This was for sure a mindless comedy with a decent plot. It did make me laugh and cheer for the underdogs. The only two goals of the movie. It hit those two goals and nothing else really. Well....this was for sure a boy's movie I believe. Not saying a girl, like me, wouldn't laugh, but it was for sure a movie that focused on guys, beer, and jokes.

The story follows two brothers named Jan and Todd. Their grandfather passed away and they decide to travel to Munich to fulfill a family tradition of spreading the ashes during Oktoberfest. While there, they are told of a secret beer competition called Beerfest. They go and they get their butt kicked and kicked out of the country by Baron Wolfgang who accuses their grandpa of stealing his secret beer recipe. To get revenge, the brothers decide to get their friends together and train for the next year. 

There were some references and jokes that went over my head since I am not crazy about beer. *dodges beer cans being tossed at me* Yes, yes. I prefer other types of boozes so I did not get the love of the beer. Overall, a mindless funny movie about friends and booze. 

Not much else to say....

So, in the end, if you need a silly movie while you get ready for bed this is a good one. Just don't expect anything crazy from this film. Just a silly movie about drinking and dudes trying to win a drinking competition. I'll give this 3 stars. I'm feeling nice today. It is Easter weekend after all.
