Super Troopers 2 – Marketing Recap

super troopers 2 poster 22001’s Super Troopers is a legitimate comedy classic. It has a ton of quotable lines, the Broken Lizard troupe that wrote, acted in and directed it are all 100% committed to the insanity going on and, like Caddyshack, contains enough gags-per-minute to make you overlook the threadbare and utterly ridiculous and implausible story.

The only hints as to this movie’s new story come at the end when we see Mac and Foster in full Canadian Mounted Police gear, but even then it’s presented in the context of a call back to the famous “Cat Game” scene from the first movie.

That being said, it’s exactly what was likely needed for this first effort, showing fans that while time has passed, things haven’t changed all that much. Thorny and his crew are still more interested in hijinks and having fun than anything else, which was the whole point of the first movie.
