Cult Classic Review- Super Troopers

Cult Classic Review- Super Troopers

Everyone how's it going and welcome back to my arts and entertainment blog.  the other night I watch one of my favorite movies for probably the 100 time and it was just as funny as it always has been.  I am talking about the movie Super Troopers the 2001 American Crime comedy film written by and starring The Broken Lizard comedy group.  the film features a lovable cast of state troopers stationed in fictional town of Spurbury, Vermont. These Troopers seem to have more of a knack for pranking each other and getting stoned in the evidence locker  then for actual police work but suddenly they find themselves busting a drug smuggling ring and attempting to solve a murder.

These Troopers have a longtime rivalry with the nearby Spurbury Police Department; the local police of Spurbury. The two departments are constantly getting into conflict with each other and one conflict ends up in an all-out fist fight which is the catalyst for the state troopers being shut down as a result of an impending budget cut.

The film only received moderate reviews getting a 35% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes and of 48 out of 100 rating on Metacritic. Film critic Roger Ebert awarded the film only two and a half stars out of four being quoted as saying “ I can't quite recommend it... but I almost can. It's a kind of movie that makes you want to like it”. Even though the movie never reach the critical success but the cast wish they did it's still described as one of the biggest cult classic movies of the last 25 years.
