The entire movie is set within an upscale restaurant, and the waiters are competing for a big cash prize. To make it even more interesting, everyone is crazy scared of the boss, boxing Champion Cleon Salmon, who is pretty much dangerously insane, but somehow likable. The Champ has threatened to give the lowest performing waiter a 'broken rib sandwich' which everyone desperately wants to avoid. All the comedy pretty much is played from this conflict as they try to trip each other up. The comedy plays off the characters - it is very character oriented with a several cameos. Some of the comedy is crude, and the language is past rough, but it's fresh and entertaining, and my family all liked it.
Broken Lizard fans will love it - Super Troopers was a bit better, but this is very good. Broken Lizard has turned around a lot of their cast stereotypes from last efforts but it works just as good as ever. There's some great one liners here too, and I can imagine that I'll be hearing a lot of them from my son and husband, who love to dredge up funny lines from movies JUST like this.
Plot wise it's basically a slap-stick version of Waiting... (Unrated and Raw) [Blu-ray] only not only do the wait staff have to deal with irritating customers, they have to seduce them into spending big to become the top seller and win a prize. Like "Waiting" there are lots of hilarious stereotyped characters both as the wait staff and the clientele. For anyone who's ever worked in the restaurant industry, there's sure to be some extra laughs as you recognize the hideous truth in some of the comedy.
Overall I'd definitely recommend this to anyone. Surprisingly the simple idea sustains its humor the whole way through and manages a good number of chuckles and knee slaps. It's hardly a masterpiece, so I don't know that I can recommend it enough to Buy it, but if you're looking for something to grab from the redbox or watch online this flick is a great way to spend an hour and a half of your time.
THE SLAMMIN' SALMON is the name of a trendy seafood restaurant owned by World Champion Boxer "Slammin" Cleon Salmon, and when he loses a bet he made with a Yakuzu Boss while they were "Japanese Albino Hunting", he needs to make a quick twenty grand, so he initiates a contest for the wait staff: Whoever makes the most money that night gets $10,000.00....the loser gets a "Broken Rib Sandwich".
Although everyone in the ensemble cast acquits themselves nicely, Michael Clarke Duncan steals every scene he's in. Someone needs to cast him in more comedies, because he definitely has some great chops. While it's not gut-bustingly funny, the film has more than it's share of laughs. The DVD also has two commentary tracks by members of Broken Lizard, the theatrical trailer, and a short featurette where the troupe talks about their own experiences working in reataurants.
