Super Troopers

Altered State Police

First off, I'm going to be straight with you. If 'wacky' and 'zany' are words that tend to make you stay at home then I'd recommend you steer a wide berth tonight. However, amongst the cinema-going public there are literally hundreds of people who are most definitely up for some silly, nay 'crazy' moronic humour. Well, tonight's your night.

It's a lonely summer out on the interstates, and for state troopers Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske), Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar, who also directs the picture), Mac (Steve Lemme), Farva (Kevin Heffernan) and Foster (Paul Soter), it may also be their last as officers of the law. Unless, of course, some major crime would occur to bring a little notoriety to the struggling trooper squad. When the troopers discover a huge drug smuggling ring in their quaint district, they must compete with the local cops (including Marisa Coughlan, from Freddy Got Fingered and Daniel Von Bargen, "Malcolm In The Middle") to uncover just who is behind the smuggling and try to save their jobs.

Don't forget - you're allowed to bring a drink (in a plastic glass) from the bar along; I suggest you bring a couple. Perfect viewing for a Sunday night in the middle of the exams when all you want is beer and the least challenging comedy ever made; Schindler's List this ain't, but watch it in the right frame of mind with a drink to hand and a couple of mates, and you can't help but enjoy yourself.
