Back when NBC’s Saturday Night Live was young and frisky, Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd won deserved yuks as the wild and crazy Festrunk brothers, recent immigrants prone to wearing loud shirts, who tried vainly to score with babes. Meet their younger and, if possible, stupider successors, the Butabi brothers (Kattan and Ferrell). These two are second-generation Americans (their grandparents are still in Yemen, we learn) whose main goal in life is to get into the Roxbury, an exclusive L.A. disco. By mid-movie, they do. Big whoop. There are a couple of honest laughs here, the same amount as in the 5-minute SNL sketches from which Night was so painfully stretched. (PG-13)
