| Original Score: 3/5
The film retains the TV program's balance between its natural warmth and a wonderfully crass sense of fun.
You can understand why this television series struck such a chord with Canadian audiences and why the film shot to number one in that country.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
If the film's release brings more attention to this potential cult classic, then it's done its job.
| Original Score: b
The film aims low but it keeps hitting its mark with hilarious accuracy. The bottom line for a comedy is, does it make you laugh? This one does.
Co-writer/director Mike Clattenburg is right on target with his trio of inept trailer-park criminals.
| Original Score: 3/4
The entire cast is wonderfully committed and seems to be having a helluva time.
Boys functions swimmingly as both a bigscreen inflation of smallscreen icons and a fairly hilarious stand-alone.
You don't have to be Canadian or a fan of the TV show to get a kick out of this movie. However, you do have to enjoy drug, alcohol and strip-club humor.
Mostly, the movie's offbeat charm comes from its appropriation of the outrageous antics of US comedies with lowkey Canadiana.
It's freakin' hilarious. I laughed out loud more than 10 times.
A faithful and funny, entirely scripted, feature-length film version of the videotaped and improvised mockumentary series.
A meandering, extra-long episode of the gem-like trash TV series, with all the heart, profanity and stupidity we expect.
Unfortunately even the most loveable rogues can outstay their welcome; this is a television idea that doesn't go the distance.
The three central characters are an acquired taste, probably by the same fanclub that digs loser/doper comedies like Dumb and Dumber or the terrible Aussie equivalent, You and Your Stupid Mate
If your idea of humor is spending time with creepy-looking lowlifes who don't have a brain among them, by all means check out Trailer Park Boys. The rest of you can save your money for better, smarter movies.
Unlikely to reap success on these shores.
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
Willfully dumb, tasteless and a little depressing.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Trailer Park Boys: The Movie is like a feature-length version of the television sitcom My Name Is Earl, only Canadian -- and not funny.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
