I decided to watch this before I started on the recently released season 8 of the show, and I really didn't know how the movie would stand up compared to the show. But wow, I was actually REALLY surprised how much I liked this movie. It takes what is great about the Trailer Park Boys, and tightens it all up.
Now, it should be said that you don't need to of seen the show to see this, because they seem to of made this film assuming that there would be new viewers, and they introduce everybody quite well. It's also supposed to not tie in with the shows at all story wise, even though you could kind of fit a few details in if you tried. But over all it's like an alternate universe from the show. Although I don't know if it would help you like the characters more if you've seen the show. This film kind of takes an idea that would usually take up a whole season of the show, and condenses it into an hour and a half, and it totally works. Lot's of really funny stuff here.
One of the biggest things I loved about this movie is how visually appealing the movie is in comparison to the show. Both the show and movie are supposed to be a kind of mockumentary, but the show rolls with that concept way more, and kind of suffers for it. Bad camera work makes it feel real, but at a cost. What's great about this movie is that they clearly planned out their shots and tried to make it look good, because I was actually super impressed here. Little shots like Ricky getting hit by a bottle in slow mo and some of the strip club scenes actually look great. I prefer seeing the realism and home movie feel take a back seat to actual good camera work. There's also some good use of music hear, like the ending sequence using the song "Bobcaygeon" by The Tragically Hip which I just loved.
This is a movie I would recommend to anyone wanting to see something funny. It's also something that kind of makes me proud to be a Canadian, in a really, REALLY weird way.
