I can't quite recommend it -- it's too patched together -- but I almost can; it's the kind of movie that makes you want to like it.

The kind of movie five college buddies who didn't want to go to law school would dream up after smoking dope and watching John Landis movies.

Sex and drug jokes abound in lowbrow comedy.

It made me yearn for the golden era of January, when Slackers was released.

It's not original, and, robbed of the element of surprise, it doesn't have any huge laughs in its story of irresponsible cops who love to play pranks.

These guys seem great to knock back a beer with but they're simply not funny performers.

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

While this one gets off with a good natured warning, future Lizard endeavors will need to adhere more closely to the laws of laughter

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

...numbingly boring and jaw-droppingly dumb.

Little more than hit-and-miss skits.

Contains a few big laughs but many more that graze the funny bone or miss it altogether, in part because the consciously dumbed-down approach wears thin.
| Original Score: 2/4

This dubious product of a college-spawned (Colgate U.) comedy ensemble known as Broken Lizard plays like a mix of Cheech and Chong and CHiPs.
| Original Score: 1/4

You laugh neither with it nor at it but rather sit counting the minutes while the movie laughs, for no good reason, at itself.

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