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 »

Consistently Funny
27 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'll admit that I'm a huge Broken Lizard fan, I have seen all of their films and even have an appreciation for the relatively unfunny Club Dread. For me, this is just a fun-loving group of comedians that love to make their audience laugh, or at least try their damnedest. I had the pleasure of attending the Canadian premiere of the "Slammin' Salmon" in Montreal recently and the Broken Lizard troupe was there to meet and greet the fans and answer questions after the movie. They are true class acts and friendly guys. While I won't give away any specific jokes I will say that from a fan's perspective, this is their second funniest film, with Supertroopers of course being the cult favourite. So yes, it is an improvement on Beerfest; the Slammin' Salmon is just straight up funnier. As for regular movie-goers and comedy fans, I highly recommend this film. It was produced with a low budget during the writers' strike, so without a big studio production, it has the fast pacing of a stage show. The focus in this movie is on the JOKES... which is something refreshing to see in a comedy; less emphasis on character development and a complex plot, but more emphasis on keeping the audience consistently laughing. The humour is low brow at times, but is also clever and well-timed, there are many quick one-liners so pay sharp attention to this fast paced comedy, enjoy!
