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.
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.
Basically the movie follows the antics of 5 Vermont state troopers who enjoy playing pranks on motorists, each other, and their arch-rivals, the local police. There is a loose plot having to do with a cache of drugs, and a sweet romantic sub-plot as well, but all these elements really take a back seat to the clever and good-natured humor.
One of the highlights for me is the opening sequence in which the troopers pull over and mess around with 3 stoner kids. After pulling them over, they take off without warning and then back up and order them to pull over again. The frightened and drugged-out kids don't know what to do since they're already pulled over. Probably the funniest section of the movie has to do with Officer Farva, the fat, belligerent black sheep of the Super Trooper family. Once he gets the opportunity to walk the beat after being banned, he immediately goes on a trail of terror that begins with his cruel and crude version of a Super Trooper prank and ends with him in jail in a homage to First Blood's delousing scene. It's a truly great comic performance.
I'm surprised that this movie is so polarizing, with a number of 1-star reviews peppered among all the raves. The comparisons to Police Academy seem totally off-base to me. Police Academy is filled with juvenile, obvious, ham-fisted gags, while Super Troopers humor is more diverse and effective. There's clever dialogue, gross-out humor, and physical comedy, and it all works really well. The criticisms that the plot is weak seem kind of pointless to me. Many great comedies don't have strong narratives (eg.Read more ›
