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