Brothers Todd and Jan Wolfhouse travel to Germany, their great grandmother’s homeland, to spread the ashes of their recently deceased grandfather across Oktoberfest. Within the famed Oktoberfest they find Beerfest, a secret international beer drinking competition that touts events such as Beer Pong, Quarters, and Das Boot. After suffering a humiliating defeat by their German cousins, Todd and Jan assemble a team for ‘training’ and vow to redeem themselves at the following year’s fest. Beerfest, directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, is slapstick comedy that is so wrong and stupid that some will find it funny in a juvenile way. (Shauna Keeley)
