I'm not a fan of beer or the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, but put the two together and you get a pretty damned funny comedy. Two brothers travel to Germany to fulfill the dying wish of their grandfather, which is to take his ashes to a beer drinking competition run by his evil brother, and from then on the laughs start and never really stop. The Broken Lizard guys seem to all be on the ball with this one (I couldn't stand any of their other flicks) and end up giving some gut busting performances. Namely director Jay Chandrasekhar and his "Wow! This shit is great! I wish I could freeze it, and make ice blocks out of it, and then skate on it! Then, in the spring, melt it down and drink it!" speech and Kevin Heffernan's "Real funny, Deutschebag." line. If you like your comedies stupid and raunchy this is the one for you, but see Clerks II first.
