The writing, acting, and directing (oh, and editing) are clearly, woefully lacking.

Audience Reviews for Puddle Cruiser

While it's nowhere near a good movie, it's extremely impressive that Broken Lizard managed to make this for so little money and with almost no experience. There's some really great moments and funny characters that make it at least worth watching.

A decent college romance comedy that is surprisingly more in the former. Seeing the young and talented members of Broken Lizard in their humble origins is, in itself, great to watch. The plot is thin and unlike their later efforts, tries hard to include all the troupe but ends up with bizarre sketchy subplots. There's no witty dilalogue, and there are only a few glimpses of the Broken Lizard humour prevalent in their later offerings. It's excellent first time film making, but only in retrospect. There are some wonderful moments, the character of Freak Reaky certainly needs a resurrection. It's probably best as a stand alone watch inspired by curiosity, rather than a sit down laugh out loud film.

I was hesitant to even watch this early film from Broken Lizard, because older first films tend to suck. It certainly feels like something some friends threw together in college - an ultra-low budget flick with some really horrible acting (Most of the main cast does a fine job, with the exception of Steve Lemme, who unfortunately was the main character). But it also contains all the same kinds of humor found in BL's other films. Not quite up to the level of their later offerings, but funny nonetheless.
