When it comes to the art of beer drinking, Americans are number one in the world. So says ‘Beerfest’, the wildly puerile new fratboy farce from director Jay Chandrasekhar (‘Club Dread’, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’), a man whose films seem squarely aimed at armchair quarterback types requiring no more than some topless dolly birds with medically enhanced breasts and a few harmless racial jibes to get them punching the air with joy. When two cocky American brothers are disgraced at a secret beer-drinking competition held in an underground German cavern, they decide to reassemble a group of college drinking buddies in order to spend a year tapping kegs, depth-charging stubbies and shouting ‘Chug! Chug! Chug!’ at any given opportunity. And that’s it. ‘Beerfest’ is a film that appears to have been conceived on the back of a beermat and its trashy direction, nonexistent plot and dismal comic mugging would seem to suggest that preparations progressed no further. So, can whoever is giving the Broken Lizard comedy troupe money to make films please stop?
