Hilarious college comedy rivaling PCU in mischievous antics!
5 February 2002 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely hilarious. I saw this for the first time when Broken Lizard was on their nationwide tour and I had to tape it when it came on the Sundance Channel so I could watch it again and again. You can tell that all the actors (most of whom are also the writers) have a natural comedic talent and despite the slow movement of the early scenes, everyone really shines by the end. The scenes involving 'Grogan' (Kevin Heffernan) and 'Matt' (Paul Soter) are priceless as they do everything they can to make each other's lives miserable, despite the fact that they are inseparable. And 'Zach' (Jay Chandrasekhar- director) has perhaps the best timing of them all with his deadpan delivery of lines. With "Super Troopers" releasing nationwide this year, I expect to see a lot more of these guys and can't wait for their next film.
