Super Troopers 2 is the greatest movie of all time



First off, if you haven't seen or didn't like the original Super Troopers, then there is no reason for you to see this movie as it is more of all that. Gotta say that I was pretty worried that this movie was going to be garbage. I fucking LOVED the original Super Troopers and the two other movies of their's that I've seen (Beerfest and Club Dread). Though their movies are never very highly regarded among critics, Beerfest is their highest rated film on Rotten Tomato scoring a 41%, but what the fuck do they know. Those movies were awesome. But the trailer for this one... had me super worried indeed. That whole "feather duster croissant Les Miserables fart catcher Luc Robitaille perriere Fran Tarkenton something something parfait," bit was anti-funny. Thankfully, that was the only part that was like that and even that scene was one they end of salvaging when they told the couple they had pulled over that the secret to life is "happiness in your household." Trust me, they turn it around. Regardless, I was LOLing pretty much the whole movie. I guess my sense of humor is still one of slapstick and one-liners. Greatest movie of all time.

Rotten Tomato Consensus: Meow that the wait for Super Troopers 2 is finally over, all but the most devoted fans mustache themselves why they waited so long for such cruel and tragic shenanigans.

Pros: Funny as fuck. The opening scene was great. Features one very pretty lady. Absurd in a good way. Solid stoner humor.

Cons: It's super asinine/juvenile but what are you a film critic? Not as rewatchable as the original.

Gist of the movie is the US and Canadia are in the midst of border dispute whereupon the super cops--Captain O'Hagan (Brian Cox), Farva (Kevin Heffernan), Foster (Paul Soter), Mac (Steve Lemme), Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske), and Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar)--are put in charge of policing the area while the area transitions from Canadian land to American. The Canadian townsfolk, especially the Royal Mounted Police whose jobs they are taking and the mayor of the town Guy LeFranc (played by Rob Lowe) who has a lot of stuff going on that would become illegal when the town moves to the states (i.e. brothels, 10% ABV beer, so forth). As they settle into their new temporary positions, the group uncovers an international smuggling ring that's pretty reminiscent of the original. On comes the high jinks and hilarity and so forth.

Ger
Chandrasekhar (Thorny) directed the film which also stars Lynda Carter (who was the original Wonder Woman in the TV show) as the Governor of Vermont, Emmanuelle Chriqui who plays the very pretty French chick Genevieve Aubois, and Tyler Labine the pudgy bearded guy in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Hayes MacArthur who is the partner in Angie Tribeca, and Will Sasso who was the big guy from MADtv played a trio of Mounties.

We also get cameos from Clifton Collins Jr. who is one of those "oh yeah, I recognize that guy" dudes who I most recently remember from the series Westworld where he played El Lazo/Lawrence, Marisa Coughlan who was Ursula in the original, stand up comedian Jim Gaffigan who was Mr. Larry Johnson that they pulled the meow prank on in the original, the unfortunate Fred Savage who plays himself, and Jimmy Tatro who was the alleged dick drawer Dylan Maxwell in American Vandal.

What was easily my favorite scene in the movie, which sets the tone up nicely, also features cameos from Seann William Scott (Stiffler in the American Pie movies) and Damon Wayans Jr. where they are cops that pull over and kill one of the super cops, Mac, during a high speed chase. This is during a dream sequence where the group is a world famous police band. The guys then use Mac's corpse as a distraction that they throw out of the back of the bus onto Stiffler's squad car. It's surreal and hilarious. I LOLed.  

Nothing to complain about here. This is a movie I've wanted for years. They did it and it is funny as hell. Almost didn't happen either. For the last 15 years or so the group had been working on a sequel with rumors circling that it was just on the horizon. But it kept not happening. At one point Chandrasekhar expressed doubts that it was going to every happen, saying at Comic-Con in 2006 that the movie "has sort of a special place in a lot of people's hearts, so all we can do is mess it up." But then they got a script written along with the rights to film. However, no one wanted to fund it saying that no one would go see the sequel that in their opinions was a decade too late. But around that time crowdfunding became popular and they tried it out and boom, they raised close to 5 mill and that was that and they were able to produce the greatest movie of all time.

So go see that shit. I want to keep seeing Broken Lizard's absurd AF flicks.

Free movies on losmovies very good! Solo is the second spin-off of Star Wars after Rogue One (2016). If the story behind the Death Star design draws Disney over $ 1 billion, Han Solo's first adventure outside of the galaxy is struggling to draw audiences to the cinema.

In North America, this week's residents have a four-day holiday thanks to Memorial Day. However, with only $ 14.1 million coming from early May 24 screens, Solo: A Star Wars Story is likely to hit $ 80-90 million after three days, and $ 105 million to $ 110 million. holiday season. Theaters may be thrilled, as the Deathly Hallows Festival has not seen any new films debuting at over $ 100 million since the X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
