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.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Broken Lizard October 8, 2005
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!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Indi Comedy December 11, 2005
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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars You gotta realize... December 19, 2005
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lizards weren't quite broken yet February 13, 2008
Every comedy group that gets into movies has to have their first one, and as much as I enjoy Broken Lizard's films, this isn't exactly MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL (AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT wasn't exactly a film, right?). It is, however, a pretty decent entry in the college movie genre, as it attempts to have realistic characters (along with the broad, off-the-wall characters the Lizards most often play) in semi-realistic situations (think of it as the SEINFELD of college movies, not in terms of quality but subject matter). Steve Lemme is designated the lead this time and the part of the straight man as Felix Bean, who falls for Suzanne McKenna (Kayren Butler), who might be student council president (we just don't know). Unfortunately, Suzanne is already dating burly, Crazy Joe Davola lookalike Traci Shannon (Jamison Selby), who a la the Boy Named Sue is a volcano waiting to erupt. Felix gets advice from his wiseass friend Zach (director Jay Chandrasekhar) and hippie mailroom guy Freaky Reaky (Erik Stolhanske), who are also having lady problems, Zach with a hot girl who constantly is running the track and who gave Zach 6 of the digits to her phone number and Freaky with Suzanne and Felix's mutual friend Emily (Alison Clapp). The remaining Lizards, Kevin Heffernan & Paul Soter, play troublemaking duo Grogan and Matt, respectively, who along with Felix tried to raid the cafeteria and got caught (Felix made a successful escape), and now pre-law student Suzanne is their lawyer (leading to a very funny courtroom scene where Matt & Grogan must represent themselves and rely on courtroom scenes in movies and the like). Felix and Suzanne have issues, dating drama, blah blah blah. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Puddle Cruiser October 10, 2007
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good low budget film May 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you aren't a Broken Lizard fan, no doubt this film wouldn't hit your radar. After becoming a huge fan of BEERFEST, i had to see some of Broken Lizard's earlier work. This one stacks up nicely to other low budget films (i think the entire movie was done for less than $50k?). Steve is the main character, a typical college student trying to make it with the Student Body President. Unfortunately, she's got a boyfriend from high school who plays rugby. The rest of the BL crew fill in as his buddies. Erik's character is quite eccentric (sic). The humor is not as laugh out loud funny, but an enjoyable movie nonetheless. Also check out The Slammin' Salmon, Broken Lizards newest flick which ranks up with Beerfest and Super Troopers.

This is without a doubt, the dumbest movie from Broken Lizard. I failed to see any humor in it. Not a good follow up to Super Troopers.
