Product Description

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.

From Comedy s Billion Dollar Man, Ivan Reitman! Producer of the Ghostbusters Films, Animal House, Kindergarten Cop, EuroTrip, Old School, Road Trip, Evolution, Six Days Seven Nights, Private Parts, Space Jam and Beethoven

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

It's hard to say bad things about the boys in Canada's beloved pseudo-reality TV series, which ran 7 seasons, not counting the one-off "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys" episode, which preceded this movie chronologically and plot-wise. There was also an Ivan Reitman-produced Trailer Park Boys Movie in 2008 (which didn't quite live up to the madness of the TV episodes).

Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles get out of prison and attempt once again, to stay out of prison. To their dismay, times have changed, and Sunnyvale has pretty much been abandoned. Bubbles's kitties are missing, and Lahey is now really off the bottle, swindling his ex-wife Barb out of property and using that deal to create the Lahey Luxury Estates. Unfortunately, the new property's main sewer runs underneath Julian's old trailer, so Lahey now has to plot to obtain Julian's land to complete his new utopia.

How is this movie different from the other brilliant Trailer Park Boys TV installments? Sarah Byrne, who was responsible for on-the-fly editing style, creating the comic timing of the earlier TV episode returns here. Blain Morris, who composed for the iconic TV theme, scores an understated soundtrack, inserting vintage country and western pieces when necessary, creating some gorgeous vistas alongside Ted McInnes cinematography. Rob Well's Ricky actually shines in some of his more serious - albeit deadpan - moments. The "battery charger advice scene" had me laughing out loud, rolling on the floor in it's sobriety: you can't jump start a dead car battery by hooking it up to your own dead battery! And the "No.1" Car Chase Scene of all time is worth the price of ticket admission alone, as the characters duel it out with a urinary swordfight in a high speed chase through downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Like so many tv shows, this one was at its best in the early stages. I loved the first few seasons but then it started getting a little stale, and the first movie was the weakest link. This one is somewhat better than that, but still a long way from the almost non-stop hilarity of the series' start.

Some of the better characters aren't here, Barb among them, the jokes are fewer and thinner, and above all the plot is just not that hot. The boys are up to hijinks as always, only now those are more serious and less funny. The bank robbery is okay but goes on far too long and just didn't make us laugh much. The same could be said of much of this. There's also too much Julian and not enough Ricky for my taste. Julian can't compare to Ricky for humor value; no idea why he gets so much time here and the real TPB star gets so little.

In fact, I laughed more at the 34 minutes of deleted scenes than at the whole movie, solely due to the preponderance of Ricky. There's a bunch of great bits featuring him that were deleted but shouldn't have been; they would have been the highlights, especially Ricky's talking his way out of the liquor store robbery. I've no idea why those were excised, as they were classic. But your editor needs changing when the best part of the dvd is the deleted scenes...

All in all, I'd love to jump on the bandwagon and say that everything these guys do is magic, but it no longer is. The freshness of the early shows is missing here, and it just feels like an overlong tv movie with an ok script. You can almost see them thinking of gags to pull here, but the inspiration is gone. Lahey has his moments, but there's too much of him here.

I had bought the Trailer Park Boys movie, and found that it was made more in the spirit that people who were watching it had never seen the TV series. Countdown to Liquor Day is more a continuation of the story after the end of the series.
I had never heard of the series until it started being shown on Directv's Channel 101. I really enjoy the characters and have turned on several friends to the show.

For all of those out there that enjoy the humor of Trailer Park Boys, you will definately get some giggles. As usual, Ricky, Bubbles and Julian are at war with Lahey and Randy, nothing new there. Their hijinks are hillarious, and there are the classic TPB gags thrown in for good measure. The only bad thing about this one is there's no Corey and Trevor.... gosh I miss those guys!

I would like to start out by saying that I went into this film knowing absolutely nothing about the 'TPB' characters and the crazy, dead-end world they live in. I had no idea this film (a sequel no less) was based on a television show from Canada and the cult following it had amassed over the years, but the hilarity of this film is a testament to the series because I am now hooked on the source material. The story is fairly straightforward. It's about a group of guys that live in a trailer park and struggle with each other's various hang-ups--there's Julian, a misguided yet articulate mountain of a man who ALWAYS has a glass of rum and coke in his hand, no matter what the situation is; Bubbles, a good-natured simpleton with an affinity for cats; and Ricky, an angry drug-dealer with dreams of a better, more educated life, even though his misfortune is often brought about by his friends' half-brained schemes, including his own. The scheme that drives the latter half of this film is downright hilarious, but it would be terrible for me to go into detail about it because you have to see the chaos unfold for yourself. I must say that John Dunsworth, who plays the ever-disgraced and reviled Jim Lahey, steals this movie, particularly in the third act. He gives new meaning to the term "falling off the wagon" in ways you can't imagine. Your enjoyment of the film may be decided by how familiar you are with the show, but speaking as a non-fan going in, I was wiping away tears of laughter by the very end. I highly recommend it.
