Beerfest

Genre: Action/Adventure, Comedy; Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar; Director: Jay Chandrasekhar; Author: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske; Release Date Wide: 08/25/2006; Runtime (in minutes): 110; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Some movies are made to thrive on DVD. In the case of Beerfest, comedy troupe Broken Lizard (Super Troopers) explores the world of competitive drinking: A U.S. squad challenges German champions in a Fight Club-esque battle of brew-guzzling skills. While Lizard hit the humor trifecta — breasts, booze, and bong jokes — it’s Cloris Leachman as a bawdy lady of the evening that makes Beerfest a frat-set classic.

EXTRAS
Two commentaries; an animated Beer 101. And in a featurette, Heffernan admits, ”You know the old saying ‘Write what you know’? That’s what we did.”
