Yes, the film is silly and the humour is childish, but somehow I still found myself enjoying it. So sue me! I was surprised at how often I laughed. I kind of threw me, but bear with me, people.
Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar – I Love You, Man, Club Dread), Mac (Steve Lemme – Open Water), Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske – The Dukes of Hazzard – 2005, Beerfest), Foster (Paul Soter – Puddle Cruiser), and Farva (Kevin Heffernan – Sky High, Strange Wilderness) are five state troopers from Vermont. They are stationed remotely near the Canadian border and all they care about is maple syrup and having a good time.
When it comes to work all they do is screw up. Budget cuts are looming on the horizon and their jobs seem to be the first ones they will cut. To try and save their jobs the five troopers have to go up against their arch enemies from the Spurbury Police Department.
Things heat up when a dead body is discovered and a potential drug ring is uncovered. Captain O'Hagan (Brian Cox – Zodiac, Running With Scissors) urges his men to smarten up, try and capture the criminals before the troop from Spurbury and hopefully save their jobs.
Super Troopers is another film outing by the comedy troupe, Broken Lizard. There's nothing complex about this film. It's entire purpose is to make you laugh. No matter how low they have to go or silly they have to be. Super Troopers is just a series of comedy sketches one after another. Broken Lizard runs the gamut of comedy styles from visual gags to the modern day gross out humour. A schmorgasborg of humour. The story doesn't even have to go anywhere and it really doesn't. Many of the gags are stupid, but they will still make you laugh.
If you are looking for a good story then look elsewhere. This is a comedy. That's it and that's all.
