A Night at the Roxbury

Synopsis: Despite being well into adulthood, brothers Doug (Chris Kattan) and Steve Butabi (Will Ferrell) still live at home and work in the flower shop owned by their dad (Dan Hedaya). They exist only to hit on women at discos, though they're routinely unsuccessful until a chance run-in with Richard Grieco (Richard Grieco) gets them inside the swank Roxbury club. Mistaken for high rollers, they meet their dream women, Vivica (Gigi Rice) and Cambi (Elisa Donovan), and resolve to open a club of their own.

FADE IN:

EXT. PANORAMIC VIEW OF LOS ANGELES - SUNSET

As we hear "What is Love" by HADDAWAY -- night falls and

partytime begins.

SUPERIMPOSE:
SUNSET BLVD., 11:03 PM

CUT TO:

EXT. DANCE CLUBS - NIGHT

Coconut Teaser, The Palace, The Roxbury, Tatou, etc.

CUT TO:

INT. DANCE CLUBS- QUICK SHOTS - NIGHT

Of random dancers -- gyrating, flirting, making out, drinking.

CUT TO:

INT. PALACE - NIGHT

The CAMERA MOVES THROUGH a crowded dance floor -- and

SETTLES ON the rhythmically swaying backs of...

STEVE & DOUG BUTABI

Our heroes. In their minds, Steve is tall, dark and handsome and DOUG is a little genius. Neither is correct

-- except for the tall and little part.

They simultaneously turn and scope the room. In unison,

their heads bop to the MUSIC. Doug steps out from the

bar.

DOUG:

(to O.S. female)

Hey! You want to dance? No?

Yes? Alright, don't worry about

it.

Doug, rejected, steps back as Steve steps out.

STEVE:

(to O.S. female)

Do you want to dance? You do?

You don't? Not a problem.

They are no strangers to rejection, so neither is fazed.

Doug enthusiastically steps towards two attractive girls.

DOUG:

Hey, you wanna...?

Two attractive girls turn their backs to Doug.

DOUG:

(remaining positive)

No? Maybe I'll see you later.

Doug steps back. Steve spots GIRL AT end of BAR and

dances over to her.

STEVE:

Hey, do you want to dance?

GIRL AT BAR:

No.

STEVE:

(cheerfully)

Alright, you know where I'll be.

Steve steps back. Doug sees a pretty woman on a balcony,

waving to someone.

DOUG/STEVE

(pointing to each other)

You want him? Me? Him? Me?

Pretty woman waves them off, frustrated, and dissapears.

STEVE:

... Oh, you're okay?

DOUG:

Alright then.

They turn around to the bar, bartender is standing in

front of them.

STEVE:

Bartender, can I get a beer?

The bartender pays no attention and walks away. Second

bartender comes from the opposite direction.

DOUG:

Barkeep, what do you have on tap?

The second bartender ignores them, walks away. The

bartenders keep crossing past the, paying no attention.

STEVE:

Big guy, could I get a...

DOUG:

My man, how 'bout a...

STEVE:

S'cuse me, partner...

DOUG:

Yo, buddy, I was wondering... you

know what? Don't worry about it.

STEVE:

Yeah, we're good.

They turn back to the dance floor and bop. Suddenly, a

HOT GIRL dances in front of them.

Doug dances up behind her and frantically gyrates. She

turns away -- only to find...

Steve gyrating behind her. The guys close in on her

trapping her in the middle.

HOT GIRL:

Get off me!

She runs off, furious. The guys, unaware that she's

upset, celebrate.

STEVE/DOUG

Score!

They high five. The doorman comes over with the upset

Girl and pulls the guys out.

STEVE/DOUG

What? What's goin' on? What's

your problem?

CUT TO:

EXT. SUNSET BLVD. - NIGHT

The road flies by as we PAN UP the front grill of a red

BMW to reveal Doug and Steve. The car stops next to two

girls in a white Porshe.

INT. BMW - NIGHT

DOUG:

We got some sweetness on the left.

Doug Turns UP the STEREO really loud so the car is

pounding.

STEVE:

(to the girls)

What's up?

DOUG:

(to the girls)

How you ladies doin' tonight?

INTERCUT GIRLS' POV

The guys moving their mouths -- but the girls can't hear

them.

GIRL #1

Turn your music down!

DOUG:

Yeah! Just follow us!

GIRL #2

You're a big stupid ass!

STEVE:

No. You have beautiful eyes!

DOUG:

I like you too!

GIRL #1

Go home, jerkoff!

STEVE:

Okay, we'll meet you there.

The light turns green. Girls drive off.

CUT TO:

EXT. ROXBURY CLUB - NIGHT

A neon sign reads "ROXBURY."

ROXBURY CLUB FRONT DOOR

A huge muscular BOUNCER, wearing a headset, guards the

roped off area. Doug and Steve confidently strut past

the crowd.

BOUNCER:

Stop!

DOUG/STEVE

What's up?

BOUNCER:

Guys, this is the Roxbury. No one

gets in unless you're on the list.

DOUG:

We're on the list.

BOUNCER:

Names?

DOUG:

Doug Butabi.

STEVE:

Steve Butabi.

BOUNCER:

You're brothers?

DOUG:

No...

They slowly turn to each other and bust.

DOUG/STEVE

... Yes!

They high five, laughing.

BOUNCER:

Quite a joke.

STEVE:

Doug is hilarious.

DOUG:

Yeah, I know.

BOUNCER:

Yeah, you ever hear this one?

You're not on the list.

Behind Steve and Doug, a '98 yellow FERRARI SCREECHES up

to the valet. Car door opens and...

RICHARD GRIECO:

gets out. Looking great, in an Armani suit, beautiful

supermodel accompanies him.

STEVE:

(beside himself)

Is that...?

DOUG:

It is. The King of '21 Jump

Street.' Richard Grieco.

Grieco quickly steps past Steve and Doug.

STEVE:

(aside to Doug)

Check the wheels.

DOUG:

Check the hottie.

The Bouncer jumps aside, letting them enter. Richard

inadvertently rubs his nose as he enters.
