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!

(3 1/2 stars)

The Slammin' Salmon is a comedy about work, like "Clerks" or "Office Space," but funnier. With the exception of a brief prologue, it all takes place at an upscale restaurant over the course of a single evening, when we see the action from the perspective of a terrified and tyrranized wait staff. It's a great set-up that plays out like a classical farce.

And what a restaurant--"The Slammin' Salmon" is a fish place with a boxing theme owned by Slammin' Cleon Salmon, former Heavyweight Champion of the World. The restaurant's ambiance mixes haute cuisine with irremediable tackiness. The fact that sophisticated people actually patronize this weird place lends a sort of surreal background humor to the film.

Michael Clarke Duncan plays the owner, Cleon, as a mixture of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and a pit bull. His affable smiles barely conceal the raging menace bubbling beneath. He's just dumb enough to be dangerous, the sort of aristocratic idiot familar from classic French and English farces all the way up to the president in Mike Judge's "Idiocracy." Cleon owes his power partly to his accumulated wealth but mostly to his ability to beat the living daylights out of anyone who angers him. The threat is always there, and we feel it through his anxiety-ridden wait staff.

When Cleon loses a wager to some Japanese gangsters, the wait staff is challenged to raise $20,000 in a single night to pay off his debt. This is far more than the restaurant has ever made before in a single night. Cleon's long-suffering manager (played by Kevin Heffernan) tries to offer various carrots to reward the highest-producing waiter. But when these fall short, the stick replaces the carrot.

This is the follow up to super troopers that I was waiting for. The humor is funny and detailed, while not being crude without reason. The jokes are crass, well placed and greatly delivered. Any fan of broken lizard will love it.

I pretty much love anything by Broken Lizard, and this is one of my favorites. This movie is one of the better ones. If you liked Super Troopers you'll love this. Funny story and the actors are all great.

Hey I am always a bit weary about any movie that was only shown on 11 screens when it was out in theaters. But you know this one isn't half bad. It is by no means a classic comedy or a flick you will be quoting over and over again to friends, but it is a passable way to spend a couple of hours chuckling at the screen of your television.

You probably already know the plot details from either reading the product description or other reviews so I won't bore you with those. But what I will tell you is that this movie falls right in with the "Broken Lizard" brand of comedy. If you enjoyed Super Troopers, Beerfest, or even Club Dread, then you will like this movie.

If you haven't seen those movies then go watch them first, if you like them then come back and watch this one.

I don't consider this Broken Lizard's strongest effort, but it is a decent one, none the less. Michael Clarke Duncan does a great job in his small role, and the rest of the cast does a good job of performing up to their potential.

The movie is rated R, which is probably due to language, scatological humor, and some sexual situations. No nudity though.

So if you are hanging out with college buddies, or partying late at night, throw this into the DVD player and you might be entertained. However if you are not a previous viewer of these style of movies you might want to stay away.

If you liked Super Troopers than you'll love this. If you've ever worked in the food industry, you'll absolutely love it. Full of laughs and stupidity that is quotable for days. Enjoy!
