  Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau and Ron Livingston as three bachelors whotroll the hip night-life scene in Los Angeles drinking martinis and calling each other "baby."

  戴夫。托马斯与里克。莫拉尼斯联合编导并主演的喜剧。两人原是美国电视喜剧节目搭档,他们将节目中的两个傻瓜兄弟——道格。麦肯西与鲍卜。麦肯西平常使用的逗笑技俩原封不动搬上大银幕,只不过把故事内容扩大到九十分钟。影片的剧情其实也很简单,描述爱喝啤酒的两兄弟在啤酒公司内发现疯子老板史密斯有一项意图控制全世界的阴谋,于是不择手段制止危机。如此内容当然没有什么营养,但影片拍得热闹轻快,对白和视觉笑料连绵不断输出,两位主角表现出活力十足的喜剧感,故尚算是消闲佳品。

  The best picture of its year stars Ray Milland as a writer sodesperate for a drink he tries to hock his typewriter and hallucinatesa giant bat in the D.T. ward. Milland won an Oscar and brought theproblem of alcoholism to movie audiences。

  “Leaving Las Vegas” (1995)《离开拉斯维加斯》
