You will probably laugh when you go see "Super
Troopers," whether you want to or not. You will either laugh out of
amusement of what may be one of the dumbest movies out there, or you
will laugh because it may be one of the dumbest movies out there. Here
A Movie Review
"Super Troopers" lets us into the world of a wacky group of
highway patrol officers in Vermont. Not much happens on their stretch
of highway, so our group of goofballs get their kicks by messing with
the stoners and assorted speeders who have no clue what they’re in
for. Then of course there are their continuous pranks on each other.
The problem is that the State is planning on closing their trooper
station because, well, of complaints and the simple fact that they
don’t seem to be needed, that the arch rivals of the troopers, the
City cops, could cover their beats. This doesn’t sit well for our
troopers, and when a drug smuggling/murder case lands in their
jurisdiction, the troopers know if they can make the City cops look
like boobs, well, the Governor would have no choice but to keep the
But the story doesn’t really matter about this comedy, it’s the
comedy antics of our Super Troopers that try to keep you laughing, and
lest I give away any of these laughs, I will just say these few
things… Some of the jokes are sick, some of the jokes are slapstick,
some of the jokes are even funny, but most of the jokes will make you
laugh even if the movie itself is pretty dumb.
More like an "Animal House," "Vegas Vacation," or "Stripes,"
but not up to that caliber, this
is a comedy that does push the line, but steers away from the
gross-out humor that you might be used to seeing now. Now what you are
getting into and you’ll probably laugh a lot during "Super Troopers."
Expect a masterpiece and you’ll be disappointed. Then again, The Dude
on the Left went into the movie thinking it would be bad, commented as
we left how bad the movie was, but he sure seemed to laugh a few
times, or maybe they were more like groans. I guess I might just be a
little more easily amused. It’s 3 stars out of 5.
That’s it for this review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
