This movie is not intended to be any sort of blockbuster or indie prodigy.
It was produced for roughly $250,000 and shows it. However, what it DOES do is show hidden raw talent these guys have. This movie won a award for a reason and while it didn't get picked up (I don't think it should have), it did prove that if given more money the Broken Lizard guys could produce something amazing (aka super troopers).
The movie itself is worth renting (I bought it for the audio commentary which is very interesting to me). Some of the jokes are dry and not funny but the few that are will have you out of the seat. The on going joke about the phone number is really clever and some of the one liners are just great and in Broken Lizard style (I love the answering machine).
If you take a chance to listen to the audio commentary you get a chance to see some of the real gems of the movie (such as did you know Steve Lemme was caught red handed breaking into the same cafeteria as a sophomore or that Jay Chandrasekhar really did get people to go see the northern lights to get a girl only to have them not appear - he did get the girl though).
This movie is rough and is not perfect but it is worth seeing.
