Trailer Park Boys: The Movie (2006)



Critic Consensus: Trailer Park Boys suffers from its small-screen origins, and its tasteless humor is not for everyone, but it will satisfy fans of the genre.

Movie Info

Booted from the hoosegow just days before the eagerly anticipated guards-versus-inmates ball hockey championship, Ricky (Rob Wells), Julian (John Paul Tremblay), and Bubbles (Mike Smith) hatch a plan to pull off the biggest heist of their criminal careers as Sunnyvale Trailer Park's most incompetent criminals make their way to the big screen. Christened "The Big Dirty," the trio's ambitious plan to steal large quantities of untraceable change soon hits a hitch when sidetracked Ricky prepares to make the ultimate commitment to longtime girlfriend Lucy and Julian crosses her new boss with disastrous results. It seems that in addition to having her bust size upgraded while the trio was incarcerated, Lucy also landed a job working at the nearby gentleman's club. When Julian goes to the club and falls for shapely dancer Wanda, temperamental proprietor Sonny quickly loses his cool. With the day of the Big Dirty fast approaching, the boys do their best to train hair-brained criminal assistants Cory and Trevor in the fine art of the heist. Of course, anyone who knows the Trailer Park Boys knows well that even their most foolproof plans have a way of springing a leak, and somewhere between the helicopter chase, the shoot-out, and the booze-soaked game of Sunnyvale Chicken waged against trailer park supervisor Mr. Lahey and his cheeseburger-chomping assistant, Randy, everything seems to just fall apart.more

Unlikely to reap success on these shores.

Co-writer/director Mike Clattenburg is right on target with his trio of inept trailer-park criminals.

Boys functions swimmingly as both a bigscreen inflation of smallscreen icons and a fairly hilarious stand-alone.

Canada may have a better health care system than ours, but the popularity of the TV show Trailer Park Boys proves that when it comes to low-brow entertainment, they can go lower than Jerry Springer.

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie is like a feature-length version of the television sitcom My Name Is Earl, only Canadian -- and not funny.

I'm sure the pot-laced antics of these trashy dudes are, like, totally hilarious on Canadian TV, but they don't translate well to America or the big screen.

Audience Reviews for Trailer Park Boys: The Movie

Ricky: You just gotta make sure the cops don't get your prescription, cause once they have your prescription, you're fucked! 

"Big Plans. Little Brains."

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie is a funny little movie about three dumb friends that live in a trailer park. If you've seen the show before then you know sort of what to expect. As far as a feature movie for them goes, this isn't too bad. It's funny, it's brisk, and it definitely keeps the social commentary flying throughout. It's not a masterpiece or anything too special, but it is solid, fun entertainment and I do have an appreciation for it.

Three moronic friends living in trailer park get back together after two of them just get out of jail. Now they have some decisions to make. Ricky wants to pull the big dirty, which means going for one big payoff and then retire. Julian wants to take it a little easier and go for change. Literally, he wants to rob change from parking meters. When Julian goes to the movie theater and sees the biggest globe of change he's ever seen, he decides to do the big dirty, but still keep the change idea. 

The comedy on display here is something you're either going to like right off the bat or you're going to hate. This comedy isn't the type that grows on you. You either like it or you don't. Not everyone finds "trailer park" humor funny. I for one do, but hey, opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. 

It's rude, it's profane, it's obscene, it's hilarious. The great thing about the material at hands here is it can be ridiculous while keeping a sense of real life in it all. It's easy to believe there's people like these three friends out there in some trailer park, and I bet there's some people that are this bad of criminals out there too.

Countdown To Liquor day one terrific comedy film. This is by far one of the funniest and best Canadian films out there. Countdown To Liquor Day is a hilarious film from start to finish. Of all the Canadian films out there, Countdown To Liquor Day is one of the funniest films to come out of Canada. This film far superior than the first film, which was also good, but lacked a little something. Whatever it was, the filmmakers found what was missing, and were able to capture all the debauchery of the Trailer Park Boys in this more than average sequel.
