Always looking for action, five over-enthusiastic, but under-stimulated Vermont State Troopers raise hell on the highway, keeping motorists anxiously looking in their rear view mirrors. Between an ongoing feud with the local cops over whose you-know-what is bigger and the state government wanting to shut them down, the Super Troopers find themselves patrolling the boundaries of good taste as they hilariously and unwittingly skid towards solving the crime of their lives.

For those unfamiliar, it's not an original story. Five bumbling highway cops like to prank the people they pull over, and each other. Budget cutbacks threaten to shut them down, and the city cops will expand into their jurisdiction. Can the highway cops provide one big bust that they need to stay in business? Are the city cops corrupt? Can officer Rabbit chug a bottle of syrup faster than officer Ramathorn?
Highlights for me included:
- the opening "college dudes" prank.
- the "meow" prank.
- any scene with Farva.
- the bear costume.
Watch it, and you'll see!
- the plot. Honestly, I start getting bored in this movie when they start to seriously investigate the big crime. My attention tends to wander. Fear not though, they get back to pranking again in short order.
Bonus features include multiple commentaries, deleted scenes, and an alternate ending. Exclusive to blu-ray are a drinking game and a fun picture-in-picture commentary featuring the entire main cast as well as supporting cast. This commentary, though a little choatic, is plenty fun. Also exclusive to blu is a new scene, animated, albeit not essential.
Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (Club Dread) made a low-brow, highly funny comedy. It's shows that Chandrasekhar wanted to make a smart Police Academy comedy with doses of Farrelly Brothers humour and it's works. This independent comedy did well in theaters in the winter of 2002 to find better success on Video. While the lead cast are Unknowns, the film also starts in Supporting Roles are:Brian Cox, Daniel Van Bargen and Marisa Coughlan. DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an terrific-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has two commentaries by the director, cast/writers of the film. DVD also has Deleted Scenes with/without Commentaries by the director and cast/writes, featurette and trailers. Do not miss this hilarious comedy that becomes a instant Cult Classic. Written by the Broken Lizard gang, which they are the five lead cast of the film. Lynda Carter from the TV's Wonder Woman fame has a Cameo here. Grade:A.
best character is farva. hes on radio duty cause he pulled over a bus full of kids and he attacked them after they threw something at him from the window.
top 2 farva moments:
1) farva asks for a 'liter cola' and the stoner kid at the burger place is like we dont have those and when farva gets his burger and drink he tears off the game piece to see if he won and theres a whole and all the drink falls on farva and he beats the kid up and he gets suspended from duty.
2) farva brings everyone coffee during the meeting and for the rookie he writes 'stupid rookie' on his cup and puts a bar of soap inside. before he came in the rookie was singing the vermont highway patrol officer song and farva missed it so when he comes in hes like 'sing it again rookie bia*ch'.
anyways this movie rules and you should buy it cause it never gets old.
There are three major problems with this movie. First, the laugh density is way too low. Chuckling every 5 minutes doesn't cut it, particularly when you compare this comedy to the classic ______ (insert your favorite here). Second, the gags take way too long to set up, and then usually have paltry payoffs that are tiny in proportion to the laughs delivered. Third, there are too many characters. A slapstick slobs-vs-the-slobs movie like this needs a Bill Murray (Stripes) or other character to be the ringleader for good, and a Ted Knight (Caddyshack) as the ringleader for evil. There are great actors in this film, to be sure, with good comedic talent, but there are so many that the movie becomes unfocused in its comedy.
Indeed, the individual actors are quite good; I fault the script (which really needed a few more weeks of polishing) and lackluster direction and editing for making this movie much less than it could have been.

The fact that this movie would be in the comedy genre is stupid because it crosses the zany and spoof genres and it has no plots. Read morePublished on May 26 2004 by Hadi Jones
