Product Description

Slammin’ Cleon Salmon, the former Heavyweight Champion of the world, is a mean, crazy, and sometimes infantile bull of a man, who happens to owe $20,000 to the head of the Japanese Yakuza and needs to come up with the money tonight. So he challenges the waiters in the restaurant that he owns, The Slammin’ Salmon, a high end, boxing themed seafood eatery in Miami, to sell more food than they’ve ever sold in their lives, with the top waiter earning $10,000, the loser getting a broken rib sandwich. As the hours pass, the action becomes more chaotic as Cleon shows up to supervise the contest and changes the rules on a minute to minute basis.

Amazon.com

The Broken Lizard gang is back with The Slammin' Salmon, a rowdy comedy that spends a night in a restaurant of the same name. Boxer Cleon Salmon (Michael Clarke Duncan, 1999 Academy Award nominee for The Green Mile) owns the swanky eatery and needs to raise fast cash to settle a gambling debt. He challenges his hapless crew to a contest to see who can up-sell the most in order to reach his goal of $20,000 before closing time. Director Kevin Heffernan sets a rapid-fire pace loaded with pratfalls, spit takes, food fights, and bathroom humor. The Slammin' Salmon brings together the usual Broken Lizard (Club Dread, Supertroopers, and Beerfest) regulars: Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, Steve Lemme, Jay Chandrasekhar, and Heffernan (as the jittery manager). Cobie Smulders and April Bowlby round out the cast as frenzied waiters who'll do anything to avoid a "broken-rib sandwich" from the intimidating Salmon. Saturday Night Live's Will Forte plays a table-hogging, water-sipping lone diner who leaves a surprise tip. Vivica A. Fox and Morgan Fairchild make awkward cameos. The one-liners and sight gags can wear thin after an hour, but die-hard Broken Lizard film fans know what they're in for when they watch a Heffernan romp, and The Slammin' Salmon won't disappoint. --Francine Ruley

First off: Don't buy it on Blu-Ray. There is no reason to, and you can save a few bucks if you just buy it on regular DVD. The movie itself is very entertaining. It has a breezy tone that is great. The characters are all funny, especially Nuts. Broken Lizard movies hinge on the chemistry of the actors, and where they faltered with "Club Dread", they succeeded with "The Slammin' Salmon". All the actors work well together, with major props going to Michael Clarke Duncan. He was much funnier than I was expecting, and had some of the best lines. I highly recommend this movie if you are looking for an entertaining, light-hearted comedy.

I'm not familiar with the Broken Lizard troupe, but this movie was a great and humorous surprise. Michael Clark Duncan is hilarious as Slammin' Cleon Salmon. While this movie will never be considered one of the great cinematic masterpieces of all time, it is a dang funny movie with a hilarious cast. This is the perfect move to watch with a group of slightly drunk friends on a Friday night. If the movie is lacking anything, it would be a weak link. This is comedy at its best.

If you love the Broken Lizard gang (Super Troopers, Beerfest) and you have been in the service industry, you will LOVE this movie. Bring "Waiting" into the Broken Lizard gang, and you have one hell of a funny movie. Don't even think about it...Just buy it!

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Leave your regular comedy expectations at the door. This movie has more of a 'play' type feel to it, than a regular comedy movie.

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.

I honestly went into watching this thinking it would be a disaster, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. I'm not well versed in Broken Lizard productions, but I highly doubt this release will taint their reputation.

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 my first Broken Lizard film, but it won't be my last.....considering the fact that it went straight-to-video, my expectations were low, but I was pleasantly surprised by how funny a film it was.

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.

If you're a fan of broken lizard films, you'll enjoy the slammin' salmon. the plot centers around Michael Clarke Duncan's character, Cleon "Slammin'" Salmon, a dim whitted ex boxing champion who owns the Slammin' Salmon restaurant. He's got to pay back a gambling debt, and he's has all of one night to do it. Kevin Heffernan's co-stars as the manager, the champ's whipping boy, and must come up with a way to inspire the staff to bring in $20,000 in one night. The rest of the broken lizard team fills in on the wait staff. Nuts/Zongo is hilarious (jay). I could have watched another full length feature on just him. Steve, Erik, and Paul's characters also fit right in. The film wasn't quite as funny as Beerfest, but a good movie to add to your Broken Lizard collection nonetheless.
