Super Troopers 2 Will Be Happening, Says Broken Lizard Members


Jay Chandrasekhar Kevin Heffernan Steve Lemme Erik Stolhanske Paul Soter

Two members of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan, were on hand for a Q&A session with fans at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, Oregon, this Friday (June 19). While there they revealed some very warmly received news indeed, that the long-awaited sequel to the troupe's break-out hit Super Troopers will is in the pipeline and should be getting released in the not-to-distant future.

The comedy collective, consisting of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, are also responsible for such noted comedies as Beerfest, Freeloaders and Puddel Cruiser, but it is their 2001 break-out film about a bunch of bored highway patrolmen trying to make their jobs more interesting that is still the most revered and loved by fans. So it came as no surprise when the audience warmly responded to the news that a second Super Troopers looks like it is on it's way.

Beerfest Review


OK
Has there been one laugh-out-loud comedy, with the exception of Ricky Bobby, this summer? The excellent Little Miss Sunshine was more of a drama, though Abigail Breslin's pageant finale was hilarious. The Break-Up, with its force feeding of wacky characters, was terrible. Scoop felt too much like a compilation of Woody Allen's not-so greatest hits. Clerks II had its moments, but it lacked the spontaneity and rawness that made the first one so great. Poseidon was funny for all the wrong reasons.

Now enter Beerfest, the newest comedy from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. It's not nearly as funny as Super Troopers, but it's not nearly as atrocious as the laugh-empty Club Dread. In this dead season of laughs, that makes Beerfest almost a rousing success.

Puddle Cruiser Review


Good
Funny-hmmm college movie, made by a bunch of recently graduated Colgate students who raised almost $200,000 to make this relationship comedy, showed it at Sundance, and toured the country showing it to college kids. No idea if it ever made money. It's not quite funny enough to be a mainstream hit, not subversive enough to become a cult classic. There are some hilarious vignettes about phone numbers, indie theater, and the whole world of man-woman relationships -- all of it with a frat house sensibility. Enjoy it as an alternative to sitcoms.

Club Dread Review


Unbearable
Club Dreadful is more like it. Have you ever watched a horror movie where you're begging for the deranged serial killer to make quick work of his or her aggravating victims? Club Dread is that type of film. This heinous horror spoof springs from the minds of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, a team so terrible they wouldn't know funny if a monkey infested with a hilarity virus nicknamed "Sharp Wit" bit them on the leg.

The Lizards made a name for themselves at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival with law enforcement spoof Super Troopers. That film cultivated a rabid cult audience who devoured the film at midnight screenings. Perhaps they were sleep deprived. Their follow-up follows a gaggle of young, hard-bodied partygoers to Pleasure Island, where a little fun in the sun turns deadly after a stalker starts killing the employees of beautiful Club Dread.
