Critic Reviews for Super Troopers

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (29)

The movie's mostly a succession of predictable skits, leavened only by the occasional amusing one-liner and played by actors who aren't actors so much as just a bunch of guys goofing off.

This 100-minute movie only has about 25 minutes of decent material.

It made me yearn for the golden era of January, when Slackers was released.

The dirty jokes provide the funniest moments in this oddly sweet comedy about jokester highway patrolmen.

Sex and drug jokes abound in lowbrow comedy.

Tears out at a refreshingly reckless pace, then gradually settles into a law-abiding speed. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Super Troopers

½

It's an unlikely cult comedy with outrageous gags & humor at the expense of law enforcement. Super Troopers displays Broken Lizard at its peak with a colorful cast of characters and laughable moments. 4.5/5

Been meaning to see this for quite some time...

and it's a shame that it took me so long to see it, because had I watched this when I was younger, I'd probably love it.

Unfortunately, I feel as if I've grown up a little too much, because I really didn't find this to be all that great.

Don't get me wrong: the story of a bunch of slacker state troopers forced to try to do actual police work is a promising premise, but the execution is where things fall flat.

The humor is very hit and miss, although i did find myself amused here and there.

To call this lowbrow could nearly be an insult to the almost distinguished league of lowbrows. A likable cast carries this bit of pork jerky, just not far enough although there are some laffs.
