Jay Chandrasekhar on ‘Super Troopers 2′, Easter Eggs, Fan Expectations, and More

It’s almost surreal to interview Jay Chandrasekhar, director and co-writer of Super Troopers 2 in his titular super trooper garb – it's not unlike speaking to a Marvel personality while they’re still in their impressive super suits. But Chandrasekhar is shockingly relaxed despite having switched between on-screen gag machine and commanding director all day on set. He's hard at work crafting a sequel that's been nearly two decades in the making, the follow-up to the scruffy stoner flick that captured the Generation Y zeitgeist at seemingly the perfect cultural moment. Finally, after a …

‘A Quiet Place’ Reclaims Box Office Crown, ‘Super Troopers 2’ Outdoes Expectations

‘A Quiet Place’ Reclaims Box Office Crown, ‘Super Troopers 2’ Outdoes Expectations
John Krasinski’s surprise hit “A Quiet Place” has returned to its No. 1 slot in its third weekend at the domestic box office with $20 million from 3,808 theaters, up 219 sites from last weekend.

In second is last weekend’s box office topper, Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage,” with about $18 million from 4,115 theaters. The action film opened to $35 million last weekend, narrowly beating out “A Quiet Place’s” second frame.

A Quiet Place” stars Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt as a couple trying to keep their family safe in a world populated by aliens that hunt based on sound. The Paramount film has grossed a respectable $116 million through Friday, including $56 million from foreign markets.

In its first seven days, Warner Bros.’ “Rampage” has earned $187 million globally to a $120 million production budget, with $141 million from overseas. Directed by Brad Peyton and also starring Naomie Harris, the film follows Johnson’s scientist David Okoye, who

Super Troopers 2 Review

With Roseanne back on the air after 20 years, and shows and films like Stranger Things, It and Ready Player One relying so heavily on their nostalgia factor, it’s not too surprising that we got a second Super Troopers. 17 years ago, the Broken Lizard troupe came out of nowhere, landing a deal with Fox Searchlight, grossing an unbelievable amount of money, and creating a cult hit in the process. Much of their charm feels reminiscent to that of Monty Python’s. But just as a second Holy Grail would impair the impact of the first, Super Troopers 2 has little worth laughing at other than a couple of retold jokes.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Super Troopers could have become this generation’s Police Academy. However, Jay Chandrasekhar and the rest of the Broken Lizard boys extinguished that fire when they abandoned these stoner policemen to make

Broken Lizard Want a Marvel Crossover in Super Troopers 3

Broken Lizard Want a Marvel Crossover in Super Troopers 3
Super Troopers 2 was finally released today, but the Broken Lizard crew already have an idea for Super Troopers 3, and it involves the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's been 16 years since talk about a sequel to Super Troopers was first mentioned, and now the movie is in theaters, taking aim at the number one spot at the box office. Additionally, Super Troopers 2 has been getting good reviews, which has surprised some fans. But, the victory lap is going to be short-lived at the box office since Infinity War hits theaters next weekend.

Speaking of Infinity War, the Broken Lizard team have an idea for Super Troopers 3 that involves Captain America and Bucky. The crew have been toying with naming the next movie Super Troopers 3: Winter Soldiers, which is a pretty epic idea. In fact, Broken Lizard has even talked about Chris Evans joining the team, if only for the

‘Super Troopers 2’: Can Stoner Sequels Find Success After Legalization?

April 20, recognized among marijuana users as the international holiday of 4/20, falls on a Friday this year, which turns out to be the perfect release date for Fox Searchlight’s “Super Troopers 2,” the long awaited sequel to the 2001 stoner-movie classic “Super Troopers.” It will open wide on 2,400 screens.

“Fox Searchlight chose 4/20 as the release date,” director Jay Chandrasekhar says. “It tested better than any of the movies we’ve ever made before. There’s real enthusiasm at Fox over this film.”

That’s not often the case with so-called stoner movies, which have endured waves of acceptance and industry reticence over the years. But now with marijuana legalization in full swing in nine states, including California, have the studios come around to stoking that market again like Cheech & Chong did during the decriminalization wave of the ’70s with “Up in Smoke” and several sequels into the ’80s?

‘Super Troopers 2’ Film Review: The Laughs Catch in Your Throat in Kooky-Cop Sequel
The opening minutes of the Broken Lizard comedy “Super Troopers 2” are so breathlessly funny they might asphyxiate you. The scene begins with a familiar set-up — a Vermont Highway Patrolman pulls over a vehicle full of pot smokers — and then ploughs through one outlandish reversal after another.

The unwritten history between the first “Super Troopers” and the second is absurdly revealed, and the returning characters from the original get aggrandized to such an outrageous extent that it somehow comes across as ironic self-flagellation.

It comes as no surprise that “Super Troopers 2” cannot maintain either that opening scene’s pace or its hilarity. That degree of madcap inanity could probably never be sustained over long periods of time without becoming exhausting. At some point the actual “movie” part of this new “Super Troopers” movie has to begin, and once it does, the whole film starts to tumble steadily downhill.

The first “Super Troopers” told the story of a group of Vermont state troopers who had so little responsibility that they pulled people over for no reason just to play whimsical improv games. They bantered, they slapsticked, and they eventually solved a big case, which proved that they weren’t totally incompetent at their jobs. It’s not a complicated movie, but it’s a likable one, and a sequel was probably inevitable. If anything, it’s hard to believe it took 17 years.

Super Troopers 2” picks up with our heroes at an all-time low. A mysterious incident in their past has destroyed their law enforcement careers, but they are brought back together again by a bizarre revelation: a small chunk of Canada along the Vermont border has, due to an oversight, actually been part of America all this time. A police force is needed to help make the transition, and every other cop in Vermont already has their own territory, so the troopers are the only ones available to take the gig on short notice.

So it is that Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar), Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske), Foster (Paul Soter), Mac (Steve Lemme) and Captain O’Hagan (Brian Cox) get their badges back. Unfortunately, nobody told the governor not to invite Rod Farva (Kevin Heffernan), one of the most horrible human beings on the planet, so he also returns to the force and quickly becomes the bane of everyone’s existence.

Scholarly papers should be written about the comedic versatility of a character like Farva. He’s such an off-putting oaf, and such a spiteful and sexist scumbag, that he can be the butt of literally any joke, no matter how cruel or violent, and it seems relatively fair. As a bonus, he makes all the other characters look better by comparison, so much so that he heroes of “Super Troopers” and “Super Troopers 2” perhaps only look heroic by virtue of the fact they are literally standing next to Farva.

Every time Farva says or does something over the line — like uncomfortably ogle their cultural attaché, Genevieve (Emmanuelle Chriqui) — the rest of the troopers get to tsk-tsk and say he’s taken the joke too far. But of course, Farva makes that kind of joke all the time. The inescapable irony is that Broken Lizard doesn’t disapprove enough to actually stop telling Farva’s jokes. They’re constantly trying to get away with making those jokes by saying they definitely shouldn’t be making them.

This anything-goes mentality steadily drags down “Super Troopers 2.” The film’s jokes about the differences between Canada and the United States are arch, and rather dumb. The troopers spend some time joking about Canadian clichés, like how nice everyone is and how they pronounce the word “sorry,” so it’s kind of funny when they realize that the stereotyping goes both ways. The Canadian Mounties they’re replacing — Podien (Hayes MacArthur), Bellefuille (Tyler Labine) and Archambault (Will Sasso) — have just as many tacky generalizations to make about Americans, and watching an entire roomful of Canadians make fun of the way Americans pronounce “sorry,” for once, is fair play if nothing else.

But as the troopers go about their business, investigating a smuggling operation and pulling their trademark pranks, it becomes clear that although Broken Lizard are too talented and likable to make a film entirely without laughs, they can’t entirely coast on charm and skillful comic timing.

The Canadian-stereotype gags are pervasive to the point that they eventually play less like good-natured ribbing and more like lazy joke-writing and willful ignorance. An ill-advised storyline about Thorny taking female hormone pills goes to every predictable, disappointing place you’d expect it to. And even the bread and butter of the “Super Troopers” movies, those wacky traffic stops, are a heck of a lot less funny than they ever were, because the real-world corollaries are inescapable and disturbing.

“Super Troopers 2” plays like a relic of the rowdy summer-camp movies, mostly of the 1980s, when characters who were objectively jerks could still seem like heroes if they punched upwards, at an establishment so stuffy they made any form of rebellion look noble. What “Super Troopers 2” is missing, and what the original more-or-less had, is that underdog dynamic. A big part of the problem is that the troopers are in charge this time, and they’re mostly just abusing their power for petty, selfish reasons.

So even though they sometimes land a great joke, the troopers aren’t inherently amusing or even all that likable this time around. They’re undeniably corrupt cops, even if they are relatively benign about it. “Super Troopers 2” still manages to be funny quite a bit of the time, but the word “funny” needs an asterisk next to it, warning that the laughs might carry with them a certain amount of guilt.

Super Troopers 2 – Review

How many penis jokes can you fit into a film? Super Troopers 2 tries to answer the question by pushing the subject to the max (that’s not a euphemism). The male parts get kicked, tasered, threatened of being shaved, discussed ad nauseam, and even boxed. Why they are the centerpiece of so many jokes could be analyzed on a deeper level, but that would require giving these jokes more thought than The Broken Lizard crew gave the script.

The lazy script – attributed to the entire Broken Lizard collective – doesn’t just reach for such low hanging fruit when it comes to genitalia, farts, and sex, but also in the way of making fun of Canadians. In fact, that’s the majority of the film. After a fantastical and amusing opening sequence that features a couple of cameos, the state troopers from Vermont head North across the border in order

10 Modern Horror Comedies That Deserve More Love

Over the years, I’ve been pretty vocal about how much I adore horror comedies, and considering how challenging the world at large has been over the last few years, it’s truly my favorite subsection of the genre to disappear into as of late. There have been numerous brilliant humorous horror movies over the years, but I thought now would be the perfect time to celebrate 10 films from the modern landscape of genre cinema that have not only been largely under-appreciated by fans, but also do a killer job of finding new ways to merge the funnies with the frights.

Just a note before we begin: I purposefully left off films like Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, What We Do in the Shadows, Cabin in the Woods, Zombieland, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, The Frighteners and projects of that caliber, because I feel like some of those

How ‘Super Troopers 2’ Became the Biggest Crowdfunded Movie Campaign After ‘Veronica Mars’
Seventeen years after the original “Super Troopers,” the sequel is arriving in theaters with a massive assist from fans of the wacky police comedy.

“I’ve been on a 17-city tour for the fan screenings, and we’ve been going out to party and I’ve been performing stand-up between the screenings, so it’s been a busy time,” director Jay Chandrasekhar told Variety.

“At one point in Vancouver, we walked into a bar and there were 10 guys dressed like us in state trooper gear,” he recalled. “There’s a level of fan interest that’s very gratifying.”

Super Troopers 2” begins opening Thursday night in North America in previews and expands to 2,040 locations Friday.

Second Opinion – Super Troopers 2 (2018)

Super Troopers 2, 2018.

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

Starring Erik Stolhanske, Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Paul Sotor, Kevin Heffernan, Brian Cox, Marisa Coughlan, Bruce McCulloch, Lynda Carter, Rob Lowe, Hayes MacArthur, Tyler Labine, and Will Sasso.

Synopsis:

When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in the disputed area.

We catch up with the titular Vermont Highway patrol officers as Governor Jessman (erstwhile Wonder Woman Lynda Carter) offers them a shot at redemption for past slip-ups. Their mission: to take over policing duties in a small French-Canadian town recently remanded to the U.S. thanks to a snafu involving border markers. (Canada seems to have become regular comedic fodder because its relation to the U.S. feels tranquil enough for some semi-good-natured mockery.) Soon, the Troopers butt heads with the Canadian Mounties while attempting to unravel the

Amy Schumer’s ‘I Feel Pretty’ Braces for Ugly Box Office Debut

Amy Schumer’s ‘I Feel Pretty’ Braces for Ugly Box Office Debut
Amy Schumer’s new comedy “I Feel Pretty” is on track for a disappointing third-place finish in its debut this weekend — a marked decline in the comedian’s fortunes at the box office.

Three years ago, Schumer left a big mark on the box office with her debut film “Trainwreck,” which opened to $30 million and went on to gross $140.7 million worldwide. But last year’s sophomore effort, “Snatched,” flopped in the shadow of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” opening to $19.5 million and only grossing $60.8 million globally.

I Feel Pretty,” which stars Schumer as a woman who is knocked out while trying to lose weight and wakes up with a completely new perspective about her body, is opening in 3,400 locations. Unlike Schumer’s previous films, “I Feel Pretty” is rated PG-13 instead of R. This could help the film — the directorial debut of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein — find a wider audience in coming weeks.

Analysts who spoke with TheWrap say that Paramount’s “A Quiet Place” and New Line’s “Rampage” will once again contend for the No. 1 spot, with the edge being given to “A Quiet Place” after it held its second-weekend drop-off to 34 percent.

A Quiet Place” is looking at a third weekend total in the low $20 million range, with “Rampage” expected to take a 45-50 percent drop and make a second weekend total in the high teens.

This weekend’s list of wide releases consists of two other films that are all expected to open to under $20 million.

Fox Searchlight’s “Super Troopers 2,” the sequel to the cult comedy by Jay Chandrasekhar. It was released in February 2002 and opened to $6.2 million — $9.8 million in today’s dollars — and the sequel is expected to open to $8-9 million this weekend.

The film is written by and stars the Broken Lizard comedy team, which includes Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske as a group of bumbling Vermont State Troopers. When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the group sets up an outpost in the disputed land, and their arrival isn’t welcomed by the Canadians.

Lionsgate is giving the film a targeted release of around 1,000 screens with a projected opening of $4 million.

With Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” a week away, most studios are giving this weekend a wide berth. No studio wants to put out a major release this weekend only to have moviegoers ignore it next week in favor of the most anticipated film of the year.

In fact, Warner Bros. moved “Rampage” up to last week after “Avengers” was bumped from May 4 to April 27.

When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in the disputed area.

I will fully admit up front I had low expectations going into Super Troopers 2, fearing that the trend of comedy sequels far too late for their own good would continue to rear its ugly head, but there is one crucial distinction to be made between this and the failures; the Broken Lizard crew and even the assembled supporting cast appears to actually want to be there and to be having a blast.
