Super Troopers 2 isn’t so super as a comedy that relies on simply lazy punchlines

Super Troopers 2 is a sequel 17 years in the making, and it sees a return by director/actor Jay Chandrasekhar and the original cast featuring Arcot ‘Thorny’ Ramathorn (Chandrasekhar), Captain O’Hagan (Brian Cox), Rodney Farva (Kevin Heffernan), MacIntyre ‘Mac’ Womack (Steve Lemme), Robert ‘Rabbit’ Roto (Erik Stolhanske) and Carl Foster (Paul Soter).

In the effort of full disclosure, I haven’t seen Super Troopers, but I know that it isn’t necessary when understanding this sequel’s plot. 

The intro to this movie sets a zany tone. I was admittedly confused at what the heck was happening, but the film explains itself soon after. After about 20 minutes and the first few batches of jokes, I understood the type of humor this film would embody, and believe me, it’s lazy.

The formula runs incredibly dry towards the middle of the film: sex jokes, Canadian jokes, male and female organ jokes, misogynistic jokes, fart jokes, jokes about the metric system. I mean, COME ON. We are in 2018 and a more clever comedy script couldn’t have been written?

I attended an early screening of this film for purposes of this review, thanks to Allied Integrated Marketing and Fox Searchlight. ❤

Super Troopers 2 is rated-R, runs about an hour and 20 minutes and hits theaters April 20, 2018.
