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.
Three teams of criminals share the same Brooklyn block, but each exists in a separate genre of film. The Amateurs are trapped in a 1970's anti-hero movie. The Sputniks live in black and white. The Moolies can't escape their rap video life.
When the guys are talking to Adam over the intercom after the pirate porn shoot scene, the caller i.d. on the intercom can be seen as an obvious sticker and not actual text on the machine. See more »
So, what's the deal with all of you guys up in the house?
Well, Adam's always had a soft spot for, uh...
...slacker, loser, fuck-up leeches?
Sure, if you want to put a positive spin on it.

Overall, Freeloaders is a pretty solid, basic comedy. It doesn't try very hard, and it uses the Broken Lizard name as a shield to prevent people from complaining too much.
My biggest issue is with the music however, none of the music matches the scenes they accompany. The background music is weird and boring. But some great cameos and some clever witty dialogue save what would otherwise be a lot more of a flop. Some of the humor tries way too hard to be over-the-top gross but falls flat, and there could have been half the main freeloading characters. Halfway there, it seems everyone involved just gave up.
I think that if Broken Lizard had had a larger hand in the production, it would have been a quality addition to their stable of comedies. As is, it's a diversion while you're waiting for something better to come along.
