Can't make it to the Octoberfest, which started on Saturday? Interested in silly US-German competition? Want to waste some money? Then watch the U.S. movie Beerfest, which has just opened in US and German cinemas:
When American brothers Todd and Jan Wolfhouse travel to Germany to spread their grandfather's ashes at Oktoberfest, they stumble upon a super-secret, centuries old, underground beer games competition - "Beerfest" the secret Olympics of beer drinking. The brothers receive a less than warm welcome from their German cousins, the Von Wolfhausens, who humiliate Todd and Jan, slander their relatives, and finally cast them out of the event. Vowing to return in a year to defend their country and their family’s honor, the Wolfhouse boys assemble a ragtag dream team of beer drinkers and gamers.The trailer states: "No Germans were harmed during the making of this film."
