Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This good-natured college comedy launched the film careers of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, who have since enjoyed a cult following with their subsequent features (Super Troopers and Club Dread) and even made inroads to Hollywood (director Jay Chandrasekhar helmed the big-screen Dukes of Hazzard movie). Here the five Lizards play a quintet of clueless college guys pursuing women with varying degrees of success; the humor is broad without tipping too heavily into gross territory, and several moments are laugh-out-loud funny, especially the group's riffs on independent theater, and a missing phone number digit. Made for an astronomically small amount (and funded largely with credit cards), Puddle Cruiser was promoted largely through a screening tour of colleges, which is covered in the disc's accompanying featurette, "Rodeo Clowns." All five Broken Lizard members are also featured on some very amusing commentary tracks. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

?Prepare to laugh your ass off? (FILM THREAT)! From the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, who brought you the outrageously funny, rambunctiously sexy Super Troopers and Club Dread, here is the original gut-buster that started it all. The premise is simple: Felix Bean, average college Joe, has the hots for campus beauty Suzanne, only to discover her boyfriend is a muscle-bound brute on the rugby team. His pain is everyone?s gain in this riotous laugh fest that you?ll want to see again and again.

Broken Lizard indeed.

If you are into crude humor I slightly recommend this movie, but it definitely isn't worth spending the money buy.

The humor is not as laugh out loud funny, but an enjoyable movie nonetheless.

I broke down and rented this movie online through cinema now a couple of years ago after seeing super troopers. Although not as laugh out loud funny as Super Troopers, it is a different kind of funny. I have been trying to find this movie everywhere and have been eagerly awaiting its release. I am looking forward to December!!!!

I thought this movie was great. Even though the comedy was nothing like Super Troopers, and thank god it was nothing like Club Dread, I found it enjoyable. If I had to compare it to another movie I'd say it was a lot like Clerks. The acting at times in terrible, but most of the jokes come off well and are really funny. The movie basically revolves around this guy who gets into relationship with a girl who is still dating her old boyfriend. The main character is Dante'esque in the fact that he has no spine, and is a bit of a loser. The plot is pretty strong, and believable and has a nice climatic ending. If you're not going to buy it, I highly suggest you rent it because it has one of the greatest lines ever in a movie (when one friend basically ruins anothers chances of hooking up with a girl at a bar).

You can tell it is early Broken Lizard and it has more of a serious plot than most of their films but still remains funny. It was worth purchasing might be a better rental if you can find it.

You gotta stick with this one! I'll be the first to admit, the first twenty or so minutes threw me. I was expecting the usual over-the-top madness of the Broken Lizard boys, but this begins as a well-written, at times low-key campus life comedy. However, once the characters are developed the gang cuts loose--the courtroom sequence is my favorite scene from all of their films. And just seeing the (much younger) guys hanging out on frat couches is tons of fun.

What you need to realize when you watch this movie is that it's NOT new. They shot this in 1995, as fairly recent college grads-on a VERY low budget. The humor and acting is a bit dry at times, but you have to realize that this is their first attempt and it is in fact an INDIE FILM. All in all it's a great story, and very funny. Worth watching!

If you attended prep school or a tiny college in the middle of nowhere, you will love puddle cruiser. They got every single detail correct, and it was shot on location at Colgate University, the filmmakers' alma mater. It's a small film, made for nothing by the very funny Broken Lizard guys. It tells a classic story of boy meets girl, boy steals girl from her boyfriend, boyfriend gets revenge, girl freaks out because the guys are fighting. Many great gags and quotable lines. Very good stuff.

I really enjoyed this movie after watching the great "Super Troopers", and the not-so-great "Club Dread". This is the first Indie the Broken Lizard comedy group produced. If you're looking for the same comedy as in "ST", you will be dissapointed. No weed jokes or police jokes in this movie, however I was laughing out loud for most of it. The plot is thin but consistent. The cast works great together and I love to see independant film-makers gain success.
Some funny moments are when one guy is telling a girl who is interested in his buddy horrible things about him...
So hilarious!

Anyone who saw Super Troopers will love this, and really see the range of the cast and understand why they are praised for being superb writers.

This movie is funny. It's obviously an independent low budget movie, but it was done exremely well, and you can see why this movie got them super troopers.
