Trivia

The disease the Lone Diner says he is dying of, Schistosomiasis, is a parasitic "flatworm" infection carried by freshwater snails in Africa. Schistosomiasis is one of the most common parasitic disease in primitive areas. Schistosomiasis is almost never directly fatal, but a chronic years-long infection can cause organ damage, several cancers, and in children can cause developmental problems. Schistosomiasis rather easily cured with Praziquantel. See more »

Broken Lizard Does it Again!
1 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of Broken Lizard (Super Troopers and Beerfest) then you will absolutely love this movie. I am one of those fans and must say that not only do the 5 members of Broken Lizard impress as always, but the other additions of Cobbie Smulder, April Bowlby and of course Michael Clark Duncan are fantastic.

The Slammin' Salmon is a restaurant owned by a former boxer (MCD) where the the wait staff leader (Farva - Heffernan) is told that if they don't make 20k, the restaurant will close. He decides to offer a prize for the top server and the competition begins.

This movie works because it clicks on many levels. It has humor that's cheesy, dirty and clever mixed in with one liners. The contrast of Jay's craziness, MCD's anger and Cobbie's innocence meshes so well it would be hard for any person who likes to laugh to hate this movie.

I would recommend this movie to everyone except for those taking their girlfriends to a romcom.
