The crazy state troopers are back in @supertroopers 2. The comedic styles of @brokenlizard star in the movie consisting of @jaychandrasekhar, @heffernanlemme, @steve_lemme, @paulsoter , and @stolhanske . This time around, the former state troopers have a new opportunity to redeem themselves. As a border dispute between the U.S. and Canada emerges, the guys are tasked with establishing some order at the border Highway Patrol station.
The casting for this movie was a nice fit. For the most part, many of the original cast are back, but it is the new additional cameos that were a nice treat. It’s probably best you don’t look them up just so you can be surprised.
One thing that I think most people will appreciate is how this film was able to maintain its original tone and humor. There was a nice blend of the jokes that worked in the previous film, with a couple of new jokes in this sequel. Surprisingly enough, this film didn’t hold back with its raunchy comedy. WIthout question, the best scenes of the film are going to be the funny traffic stops that the cops pull just like in Super Troopers (2002). The Bad:
While comedy is definitely subjective, this brand of brash, and sometimes crude, humor can probably come off as offensive to more sensitive audiences. While this film may play well for fans of Super Troopers (2002), many of the jokes may not land with newer audience. This is primarily because too many of the jokes and references were callbacks to the previous Super Troopers film. The level of recycled comedy is almost like a gift and a curse. It does great as fan service, but not so much in evolving with today’s current sense of comedy.
