How many out there have seen Super Troopers more than say, five times? I’m willing to bet the number is higher rather than lower. Because lets be honest, Super Troopers is pretty frickng funny and ridiculously quotable. It was the high water bench mark for the Broken Lizard as subsequent films couldn’t match the laugh ratio that Super Troopers provided. But as they say, you gotta dance with the one that brought you and given the Lizard’s lack of relevance, they are doing just that, with Super Troopers 2.
Where did you learn that information Craig, drug school?
Well actually, the news came from two of the Lizards themselves, Kevin Heffernen (Farva) and Steve Lemme (Mac). The website Guyspeed was talking to the two about their newest comedy special when the interview shifted to the only real information we want from Broken Lizard, a sequel to their most popular movie. Here’s what Farva had to say:
There will be a Super Troopers sequel. We put it off for a while and then came back to it. We wrote the script and handed it in to Fox and now we’re just negotiating the time and the place and hopefully shoot it some time this year. I have to start growing my mustache now.”
Hopefully, that information isn’t just the Lizard telling people what they want to hear but will actually come true. Personally, I’m down for a sequel. Despite little moments in both Club Dread and Beerfest, the remainder of those films plus everything that came after them has been a real letdown. And while doing a sequel seems like an obvious attempt to not only take the money and run, but get themselves back into the spotlight, there is a part of me that believes they can make a funny movie again.
Here’s to hoping that wish comes true, meow.
