The sequel to the wildly popular Trailer Park Boys: The Movie released in 2008!
One of the highest rated cable TV shows for 7 seasons
Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are about to get out of jail, and this time, Julian vows to go straight, even open a legit business. Soon the Boys will all be rich. At least that's what they've told the parole board. But when they arrive back at the park, they find it's not the same old Sunnyvale - and it's not the same old Jim Lahey, Trailer Park Supervisor. Lahey's a new man, hasn't had a drink for two years. And he has plans - BIG PLANS - for Sunnyvale. But unfortunately for Lahey, Julian stands in his way. With his big plans for Sunnyvale going down the toilet, his relationship with Randy broken down, and having the Boys back in the park is all way too much pressure for him to bear. For Jim Lahey, the countdown to liquor day is on.

Calling Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day
"the funniest Canadian movie ever made," in the words of one critic, may sound like faint praise. But for the right demographic, this 2009 item, based on the popular and long-running "pseudo-reality" TV show, it's sure to be a slice of paradise. As the story opens, our three heroes, Julian (John Paul Tremblay), Ricky (Robb Wells), and Bubbles (Mike Smith), are released from prison, vowing never to return--but that seems unlikely, considering that their first moves are to steal a Department of Corrections van and rob a liquor store. When they return to their beloved trailer park, it's in shambles; seems arch-nemesis Jim Lahey (John Dunsworth) has built a new park in their absence (even worse, Bubbles's beloved brood of cats has been taken to the nearest shelter). The boys' plan to stay on the straight and narrow by opening an auto body shop is soon abandoned in favor of several get-rich-quick schemes, as Julian torches his car in an insurance scam, Ricky tries to use green recycling bins for marijuana farming, Bubbles attempts to liberate his kitties, and, in a truly moronic finale, all three disguise themselves as armored car guards and try to pull off a bank job. Whether any or all of this is funny depends on the eye of the beholder; ditto for the virtually nonstop displays of drunkenness on the part of pretty much every major character in the film. Countdown to Liquor Day
clearly isn't for everyone, but considering the success of The Hangover
, you'd have to say its prospects are good. --Sam Graham
