Storyline

Thorny, Mac, Rabbit, Foster and Farva are Vermont state troopers out to have a good time. Stationed in a remote area near the Canadian border, the troopers, avid pranksters with an affinity for syrup, have a knack for screwing up on the job. But when budget cuts in the town of Spurbury threaten their livelihood and pit them against arch-rival Spurbury P.D., the five friends try to straighten up and fly right. That is, until a dead body is discovered and a possible drug ring is unearthed. The super troopers spring into action attempting to solve the crime, save their jobs, and outdo the local police department. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In the scene where Ursula hits Foster in the head with a snowcone, there is a set-up to indicate that the snowcone is solid. There was a mid-scene switch scheduled in which the hard snowcone would be replaced with a softer one. However, the switch did not occur during several of the takes and hence, Paul Soter took a solid block of ice to the head about nine times before they got it right. See more »

Goofs

When Mac is being chased in the white Miata convertible by the State Troopers in the beginning of the film, the lead patrol car looses its driver-side, front wheel hubcap coming off the highway ramp. In the very next shot of the car, the hubcap is back. See more »

Quotes

College Boy 2: No, man, I'm just saying... I'm sayin', if-if you own beachfront property, right, do you own, like, the sand and the water?
College Boy 3: Nobody owns the water. God owns - it's God's water.

A rave review for a great comedy
26 January 2003 | by (Incirlik, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Super Troopers? Never heard of it. Then I saw it. Then I hit play again and watched it twice in a row. Sitting in an Airbase in Turkey, I knew I had found what would be our number one "cruise flick." The movie that all the officers of Fighting VAQ-134, could watch together, then spend the next few weeks quoting. One guy even got a callsign, "Farva." Perfect. There is a lot of great material to chew on all through the movie. The rivalry, pranks, and rookie bashing are things we cherish. And we can all relate to having that one guy around who drives you crazy. Many of my peers have already purchased the movie. And we have incorporated many of the quotes into our cinematically based lingo.

My recommendation is to grab a bunch of friends, maybe some cold beverages, and have a good time. You just may want to become a Highway Patrolman.
