Super Troopers Reviews
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.
This movie came on at the bar after SNF ended, and my friends knew the words even without the sound on so I was curious... I was gonna give it 3.5 stars... but then the last scene happened. These guys are a helluva lot of fun. You may want to strangle them sometimes, but mostly, fun.

Super Troopers is a comedy that has its moments. It has scenes that are pretty good when just looked at as one piece, but on the whole it really isn't that funny. After the first sequence, which is by far the best part of the movie, it goes completely downhill. All the movie is is annoying actors doing annoying things. Then Jay (whatever the fuck his last name is) went and took the same annoying actors and did the same annoying things again with Beer Fest.
The movie follows some highway patrolmen who aren't very good at their jobs. They smoke weed and come up with games to play when they pull over cars. "Meow." See there's another moment. They learn that they might be cut and not have their jobs anymore, so the captain tries to get them to stop screwing around, but they never quit fucking around. Then they find a lot marijuana and start to investigate who is moving it.
I'll give it to Jay; he really tries to be funny. He's just not that funny. This movie tries way to hard to create laughs that just weren't there. It has the most overrated line ever. "The snozzberries taste like snozzberries." I don't know why people love this movie and frankly I don't really care. Whatever makes you laugh I guess. Even if it is a bunch of morons attempting to be funny.
A very funny cop comedy from the comedy troupe Broken Lizard. It has a lot of funny parts, but definitely gets better on repeated viewings.
Mac: Oh, c'mon, we're like the sons you never had.
Captain O'Hagan: If you were my son, Mac, I would've smothered you by now.
Mac: Smothered me in gravy you big dirty man.
The movie revolves around a group of misfit cops who love to pull pranks on the people they pull over.
There is a loose plot revolving around the unit being shut down due to their shenanigans, but its mainly a set up for comic hijinks.
Captain O'Hagan: I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next guy who says, " Shenanigans."
Mac: Hey Farva what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?
Farva: You mean Shenanigans?
[as they hand the Captain their pistols]
While a lot of the individual scenes are very funny, what makes me keep laughing is a lot of the lines and deliveries.
The movie has a pretty infectious sense of humor that makes it very enjoyable.
Dimpus Burger Guy: Uhh, right. Beverage?
Farva: Gimme a litre o' cola.
Dimpus Burger Guy: What?
Farva: [Annoyed] A litre o' cola.
Dimpus Burger Guy: [into mic] Litrecola? Do we sell litrecola?
Thorny: Will you just order a large, Farva?
Farva: I don't want a large Farva. I want a goddamn litre o' cola!
Dimpus Burger Guy: [to Farva] I don't know what that is!
