Overview

A handful of state troopers are put in the uncomfortable position of having to actually enforce the law in this high-spirited comedy. Mac Steve Lemme, Thorny Jay Chandrasekhar, Foster Paul Stoter, and Rabbit Erik Stolhanske are four Vermont state troopers whose dedication to duty is not exactly an inspiration to law enforcement officers everywhere. Stationed in a small town near the Canadian border, the troopers don't have much to do, so they while away their hours smoking dope and harassing hapless motorists. Their superior officer, Capt. O'Hagan Brian Cox, likes the boys and they try to keep their more outrageous antics out of his earshot, but they often run afoul of fellow trooper Farva Kevin Heffernan, who insists on doing things by the book. When Governor Jessman Lynda Carter announces massive budget cuts for Vermont law enforcement personnel, things look bad for the troopers and they must quickly prove their worth or they'll be forced to look for real jobs. Appropriately enough, the troopers stumble upon some information regarding a group of marijuana dealers operating along the border; the guys figure this is just the sort of high-profile bust that could save their careers, but the police department of a nearby town gets wind of the troopers' plans. The Earlville police are no friends of the troopers, and they set out to ruin their moment of glory. Super Troopers was written by the five-man comedy troupe Broken Lizard, who also star as the five troopers; the group's leader, Jay Chandrasekhar, directed.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Super Troopers is a silly, slow-moving lowbrow comedy. Colgate University-spawned comedy troupe Broken Lizard work well together, but their script is full of flat jokes and gags that misfire, and the direction by troupe member Jay Chandrasekhar (who plays Thorny), stretches every one of these bits to the breaking point. The lazy pace of the film is oddly intriguing during a pre-credit sequence in which Thorny and Rabbit (Eric Stolhanske) harass a trio of stoned college kids. The scene's weird distention enhances the Kafkaesque quality of the humor. But things never really pick up, and it begins to seem like the guys just didn't have enough jokes to fill the film's running time. Why just throw away a gag about Mac (Steve Lemme) pointing his radar gun at his hand when he's masturbating in his squad car, when you can drag it out for a good minute-and-a-half? The Broken Lizard guys are better actors than they are writers, and Chandrasekhar in particular is surprisingly sympathetic. Veteran character actors Brian Cox (who played Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter) and Daniel Von Bargen (of TV's Malcolm in the Middle) do solid work. There's an original idea in here somewhere about bored cops whose attempts to pass the time devolve into anarchy. But the appealingly off-kilter premise and easy bonhomie are not enough to sustain a feature film.
San Francisco Chronicle
Super Troopers is more sophisticated than, say, American Pie 2, but they've still got the good sense to know you can't have a romp without a little raunch.
New York Post
Laugh-out-loud comedies are so rare that you shouldn't casually pass up Super Troopers, which is essentially a smarter and much funnier version of the old Police Academy flicks.... Super Troopers is just the ticket for the year's first don't-miss guilty pleasure at the movies.

    Rabbit, Thorny, Mac, Farva, Foster, and Chief Grady are a group

    Rabbit, Thorny, Mac, Farva, Foster, and Chief Grady are a group of state troopers. They all live in a town in Vermont named Spurbary. The men like to play games and jokes for fun, like the meow game. The men also have a knack for screwing up their job. In order for their jobs not to be cut, due to budget restraints, Rabbit, Thorny, Mac Farva and Foster have to really straighten their act up and write more tickets.
    One of the funniest characters, I thought, was Mac. One reason this is because he got shot in the groin with a bullet proof nutcup. Another reason is because when they pulled over the two troopers, he acted like he shot the two cops and stole the cop car.
    I give this 5 out of 5 stars because of the humor and the good acting. I think this movie is a good movie for teen and adults. If you enjoy a good comedy, then this is the movie for you.
