Super Troopers 2
The forgotten-but-not-gone “comedy” troupe Broken Lizard (Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske) is back in a sequel to their 2001 turkey about incompetent Vermont Highway Patrolmen—this time opening a station in an area of Canada that’s being ceded to the U.S.—and they’re just as unfunny and talent-free as they were back then. All five wrote the non-script, and Chandrasekhar provided the non-direction. The “boys” are all pushing 50 now, and what passed for youthful folly in 2001 now looks like sadly wasted lives. Brian Cox is back as their harried captain, Rob Lowe and Emanuelle Chriqui play Canadian liaisons to the “invading” Vermonters, and Lynda Carter, Seann William Scott, Damon Wayans Jr., and Fred Savage all show up for oh-what-the-hell cameo appearances.
