Product Description

Slammin' Cleon Salmon, the former Heavyweight Champion of the world, is a mean, crazy, and sometimes infantile bull of a man, who happens to owe $20,000 to the head of the Japanese Yakuza and needs to come up with the money tonight. So he challenges the waiters in the restaurant that he owns, The Slammin' Salmon, a high end, boxing themed seafood eatery in Miami, to sell more food than they've ever sold in their lives, with the top waiter earning $10,000, the loser getting a broken rib sandwich. As the hours pass, the action becomes more chaotic as Cleon shows up to supervise the contest and changes the rules on a minute to minute basis.

I love Broken Lizard and of course, Beerfest. Slammin Salmon isn't quite there....there are laughs, but nothing worth going out of your way for

Very Funny Movie April 15 2010
By C. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
First off: Don't buy it on Blu-Ray. There is no reason to, and you can save a few bucks if you just buy it on regular DVD. The movie itself is very entertaining. It has a breezy tone that is great. The characters are all funny, especially Nuts. Broken Lizard movies hinge on the chemistry of the actors, and where they faltered with "Club Dread", they succeeded with "The Slammin' Salmon". All the actors work well together, with major props going to Michael Clarke Duncan. He was much funnier than I was expecting, and had some of the best lines. I highly recommend this movie if you are looking for an entertaining, light-hearted comedy.

Super Funny May 19 2010
By Celeste - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I'm not familiar with the Broken Lizard troupe, but this movie was a great and humorous surprise. Michael Clark Duncan is hilarious as Slammin' Cleon Salmon. While this movie will never be considered one of the great cinematic masterpieces of all time, it is a dang funny movie with a hilarious cast. This is the perfect move to watch with a group of slightly drunk friends on a Friday night. If the movie is lacking anything, it would be a weak link. This is comedy at its best.

Slammin' Salmon ROCKS April 8 2013
By RockStarr - Published on Amazon.com

If you love the Broken Lizard gang (Super Troopers, Beerfest) and you have been in the service industry, you will LOVE this movie. Bring "Waiting" into the Broken Lizard gang, and you have one hell of a funny movie. Don't even think about it...Just buy it!
cool but crude farce April 24 2010
By H. F. Gibbard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
(3 1/2 stars)

The Slammin' Salmon is a comedy about work, like "Clerks" or "Office Space," but funnier. With the exception of a brief prologue, it all takes place at an upscale restaurant over the course of a single evening, when we see the action from the perspective of a terrified and tyrranized wait staff. It's a great set-up that plays out like a classical farce.

And what a restaurant--"The Slammin' Salmon" is a fish place with a boxing theme owned by Slammin' Cleon Salmon, former Heavyweight Champion of the World. The restaurant's ambiance mixes haute cuisine with irremediable tackiness. The fact that sophisticated people actually patronize this weird place lends a sort of surreal background humor to the film.

Michael Clarke Duncan plays the owner, Cleon, as a mixture of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and a pit bull. His affable smiles barely conceal the raging menace bubbling beneath. He's just dumb enough to be dangerous, the sort of aristocratic idiot familar from classic French and English farces all the way up to the president in Mike Judge's "Idiocracy." Cleon owes his power partly to his accumulated wealth but mostly to his ability to beat the living daylights out of anyone who angers him. The threat is always there, and we feel it through his anxiety-ridden wait staff.

When Cleon loses a wager to some Japanese gangsters, the wait staff is challenged to raise $20,000 in a single night to pay off his debt. This is far more than the restaurant has ever made before in a single night. Cleon's long-suffering manager (played by Kevin Heffernan) tries to offer various carrots to reward the highest-producing waiter. But when these fall short, the stick replaces the carrot. Cleon adds an incentive--the lowest-producing waiter will get a "broken-rib sandwich," courtesy of Cleon himself. Now we descend into "Glengary Glen Ross" territory, with each of the waiters trying desperately to stay on top, using absurd levels of seduction and flattery on the customers and undercutting the other waiters' efforts.

The Broken Lizards are as desperate for laughs as the waiters are for tips, which brings out the idiosyncracies of each character. The best character is played by Jay Chandresekhar, the obligatory loony who fails to ingest his psych meds and unleashes his inner nut. We have a slutty waitress who comes on to her customers, gay and straight alike. And an erstwhile Hollywood star, whose nose job actually lost him the part, who is now reduced to waiting on his former co-stars (including Morgan Fairchild and a barely-recognizable Lance Henrickson). The other characters are given less to do but they keep the action moving. I got the sense that everyone really enjoyed being in this film, which made it a pleasure to watch.

It's a guilty pleasure, though, with far too many jokes involving threats of ramming various things up various orifices. If you've watched many films like this one, that side of it may be tedious. The broad, crude humor that serves as filler gets old. But I still found myself laughing out loud at times, from the sheer audacity of it all.

slammin salmon is the best ab workout ever! May 14 2014

This is the follow up to super troopers that I was waiting for. The humor is funny and detailed, while not being crude without reason. The jokes are crass, well placed and greatly delivered. Any fan of broken lizard will love it.
