MovieGuy Guest Review by Peter Engel
Going into this movie I wasnt sure what to expect, other than more shenanigans. Boy, did they deliver! The beginning of the movie sheds light onto what the guys have been up to since the last film ended. They tidied up the past 17 years quite nicely, while showing their personalities haven't changed. The Broken Lizard guys all seem like they just walked right back into their roles as if they never stopped filming. This film is marketed as a "Canada vs USA" rivalry, and it truly is, just like how they went after their rivals in the first film. The targeted differences between Canada and the USA are highlighted in memorable fashion. The co-stars all delivered excellent performances as well, with some over-the-top, and some dead-on accents. The Royal Canadian Police costar team really brought life into the movie with their portrayals of typical Canadians and their own comedy talents being used in some excellent improv work. Everyone had the right amount of "eh's" to say.
However, as with most sequels, this one suffers from "reused joke syndrome". It wasn't overly noticeable to a casual viewer, but as a huge fan, I picked up on the subtle and, not so subtle, throwbacks. There is at least one joke you can only catch from the original movie's dvd commentary, but it was...predictable.
Overall, I need to give the film a 4 out of 5. I come to this giving it a 4 for the casual viewer and a 3 from a Super Trooper super fan and Indiegogo supporter that expected better work from the boys.
