Editorial Reviews

Ricky, Julian and Bubbles come up with a scheme to steal large amounts of untraceable coins. Set in a separate storyline not related to the "Trailer Park Boys" Television show, but with the same lovable characters. The boys get arrested for robbing an ATM machine and spend 18 months in jail. When the get out, they decide to pull off "The Big Dirty" which is to steal a large amount of coins because they are untraceable and quit their life of crime forever.

First off, that sounds like a good plan to make some money Hockey Town Dude. The Boys would be proud, you could make like 10-12 bucks a day from those Ebay Dicks. Not quite enough to keep you in hash, rum and chicken fingers but hey, what's stealin' for? Anyways, one of the charms of this TV show that made it such a popular cult favorite is the low-budget, handheld camera technique. Despite the big budget, hollywood production of the movie it still holds all of that Trailer Park Boys charm.

The Boys get oot of jail (kicked oot early, so Ricky can't play goal in the guards vs. inmates ball hockey tournament) and hatch a plan for The Big Dirty, one last heist that will allow them to retire. They're all set to steal vast quantities of change .. why change? Duh .. it's completely untraceable! As can be expected, things don't go 'exactly' as planned and our boys run into trouble with the law.

Another difference between this movie and the show is in the ending. At the center of every TPB plot is a similarly bizarre money-making scheme that goes awry. Of course, the movie is no different but the ending might be a little happier than hardcore TPB fans are accustomed to.

The movie is not canon with the show, you can see a list of a few differences between the movie and the show on wikipedia.

Filmed in beautiful Nova Scotia the cinematography is absolutely amazing. Sets include a trailer park and a prison, I know .. not so beautiful. But a nice, peaceful blue sky sat over many scenes that perfectly fit our Boys' usually frenetic action (I mean 'perfectly fit' in the way that their nice, serene theme music fits them perfectly). ;)

Overall, I thought the movie struck a good balance. TPB fans should enjoy it and first time viewers won't have to know the show to enjoy the movie.

Just picked this one up the other day. AWESOME!!! If you even liked the TV series even a little bit (and c'mon now - ya gotta love Julian, Ricky and Bubbs!) this is a great laugh. Loved it!! It's was pretty cool to see some Canadian musical talent in the show too!. Alex Lifeson (Rush), Hugh Dillon (Headstones) and Gord Downie (Tragically Hip) play the parts of a cop, club-owner and another cop, respectively.

Just crack open the beers, put the feet on the table and get ready to laugh your socks off.

Yes, it might be considered to be "low budget" but that truly is one of the magic things about TPB. And, always remember: "A dope trailer is no place for a kitty!"

Fans will not be dissapointed, all your favorite characters are at it

again. The fun continues with this movie, the boys are out of prison

and need to get back to what they do best...

Even if you never saw the series, you should enjoy it if you dont mind

the swearing....but it fits the characters.

If you already love Julian, Ricky and Bubbles and are just looking to finish off your collection of the Trailer Park Boys...then by all means, spend your money on this movie. If you are new to the "Boys" then your money would be better spent on a season of the series - better yet the entire season of the series! Trailer Park Boys: The Complete Series This movie follows the same premise as pretty much every episode of the series - funny bad idea followed by more funny bad ideas with some recreational drug & alcohol use thrown in with badly quoted sayings - and somehow manages to only contain about a quarter of the laughs. The production values and cameras seem to be of better quality, if that is something that is important to you; but the "documentary" style shooting of the original series has always been part of the charm for me. One plus to purchasing this movie is that the extras, especially the lost interviews, are almost worth the price of the DVD for any fan.

I've been a huge fan of this show. I own all the seasons and have already watched the 6th season, i'm so what addicted to it. Now when showing this show/movie to my friends theres a couple of things i do first. I'll show them the first season and second season to have them get the jist of the show. Simply being the show is so diffrent from anything in america that it takes some getting used to. But after a while you will quickly begin to enjoy the show. I've never met anyone who watched the whole first season and be displeased. Afterwards they'll love the movie as dearly as i do. I have shown the movie to a few before they seen any of the show and had mixed reviews. But never has someone whose watched a little bit of the show not like the Movie. Overall the movie is great, everyone from the shows i back on except trinity. The girl who plays trinity is an awful actress however shes not in it too much. You'll really enjoy this show if you're a true Trailer Park Boys fan.

OK, let me start by saying, I am addicted to the Trailer Park Boys TV series...It's LMFAO funny, and I can watch episodes over and over AND still laugh and each season is as good as the last!!!! This movie is ok but doesn't have the same feel as the series...You just do not feel as connected to the characters as with the show. For me, it felt more forced and not as "natural". Also, there were some added elements that I personally don't feel were needed, namely the nudity. The show relies on the good scripting and funny story-lines...no need for boobs there. I felt it was a sell-out for the movie to go to that level and it was disappointing. Overall, although the camera work wasn't as "mockumentary" feeling as the series, and maybe the quick wit and funny lines weren't as often as the series, it is a must-have to round out your Trailer Park Boys collection. I highly recommend for Trailer Park newbies: Try the series first---it will give you the true magic of the Trailer Park Boys. I only give the movie 3 stars in comparison to the series---which is 5 stars all the way....If you start with this movie, you are short-changing yourself on the real experience of Ricky, Julian and Bubbles!
