Movie Info

A handful of state troopers are put in the uncomfortable position of having to actually enforce the law in this high-spirited comedy. Mac (Steve Lemme), Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar), Foster (Paul Stoter), and Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske) are four Vermont state troopers whose dedication to duty is not exactly an inspiration to law enforcement officers everywhere. Stationed in a small town near the Canadian border, the troopers don't have much to do, so they while away their hours smoking dope and

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.

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

Filme amalucado, mas com grande espírito de diversão. É incrível que o filme consiga estabelecer tamanha empatia por seus heróis, já que estes são imbecis e só fazem besteira.

The movie is as juvenile and silly as it looks. But it's also funnier than you would expect.

This is one of those films that makes movie critics embarassed to admit they liked it without first smoking a joint.

If the shots were more focused and the sound design had a little more punch, this could be an amazing film instead of just an endearing one.

Comedy troupe Broken Lizard's first movie is very funny but too concerned with giving us a plot.

This seemingly endless sitcom is too infatuated with its own hijinks to realize they're virtually witless.

The awful title should be a warning to you about the film.

A painfully leaden film destined for pre-dawn cable television slots.

. Curiously, Super Troopers suffers because it doesn't have enough vices to merit its 103-minute length.

Jay Chandrasekhar helms this wacky vehicle with all the conviction of a defective police siren...feels more like an excuse for Chandrasekhar and his fratboy Broken Lizard comedy troupe players to merge and serve up their pet project just to kill some time

Good, fun comedy that finds humor in personality and avoids scraping the bottom of the comedic barrel.

An appealingly juvenile trifle that delivers its share of laughs and smiles.

Just a long string of high school-style pranks and hazing exercises. And as with such gags in real life, they're never as much fun for those who aren't taking part.

Audience Reviews for Super Troopers

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.

Favourite line: "Excuse me, bear... Bearf***er! Do you need assistance??"

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.
