When a serial killer interrupts the fun at the swanky Coconut Pete's Coconut Beach Resort--a hedonistic island paradise for swingers--it's up to the club's staff to stop the violence...or at least hide it.
I am a big fan of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. A BIG fan. I've loved all of their movies so far, from the small, flawed Puddle Cruiser to the greatness of Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest and more. They know how to tickle my funny bone.
As the guys all started working together on stage I thought that Broken Lizard Stands Up would be a good way for me to see how their comedy began and developed. I thought that seeing them in that environment might be a rare chance to see what they do best.
I was very wrong. It's clear to me now that the movies are what they do best, and long may they continue doing them.
The guys just aren't as suited to stand up nowadays. The material isn't sharp, it's sometimes painfully unfunny and the only real entertainment value comes from hearing anecdotes about how the guys met (with the tale told between Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan being the best) and also how things went down when they had a chance to meet an idol, Patrick Swayze.
I wouldn't watch this again and I'm a bit frustrated that I wasted any time on it at all but as long as Chandrasekhar, Heffernan, Lemme, Soter and Stolhanske get another movie out soon I'll still count myself as a fan.
