In addition to spoofing "Zombieland," this film smartly satirizes the relationship between men and strippers and unreal expectations that mankind shares.
There is plenty of Troma style blood and guts. The extras show a bunch of women immensely enjoying making this film. This is a fun film to watch, especially right after "Zombieland."
Parental Guide: F-bomb, No sex. Some nudity, but not as much as one would expect from the title.
Not cheap to make either. Very long cast list at the end, scenes from many bars, casinos, strip clubs, apocalyptic streets with military vehicles abandoned on it.
Too bad it sucked.
They did something I hate. They took an actor (no one could act in this movie) and told him to be completely annoying and talk all the time. If this was my best friends friend, I still would have kicked him in the nuts. You get the idea, you'd get away from this person in a second in real life. I watched the whole thing. Why? So you don't have to :)
And the script sucked just as bad. Lines like "Turd burglar, we have to barricade the door better." Really?
My take on these type of films is you go in expecting 'nothing' - not very little - but 'nothing'. Most of the time you end up with at least a scene to walk away with however thinking to yourself, "not bad". No such luck on this one. Cheers for trying fellas!
I really think the director could have saved this movie from being a snooze-fest and even made it a great movie had he gotten bolder and put more film on the cutting room floor. Well that and didn't try so hard to match the original. Seriously this movie skates dangerously close to being considered a knockoff. Which is frustrating because I think there was enough cheesy material that they could have pulled from from their story premise to hold their own.
If for whatever reason the writer of the script reads this comment, the next parody you write put more of your own ideas into the story line rather than follow the original your parodying. People will get it. Look at Zucker movies. He will match a key situation in a scene as the original movie and than just completely destroy it in the most hysterical way possible. A couple of times you really nailed it. Like the tripping scene. Loved that! But the fat guy G.G. that got shot scene... the whole scene was awkward and didn't make sense. The attempt to match the Bill Murray's scene in Zombieland was just a really bad idea. Clearly the Frisco guy could hear the others giggling and you would have had to be blind or mentally impaired to think a old bald fat guy is a stripper.Read more ›
Experienced Zombie flick fans will recognize the name Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Productions fame and will not need to read further. For the rest of you, this movie exemplifies all that we find hideous in cheaply made Zombie films. Billed as a comedy, it brings no laughs to our bellies, no smiles to our face. Like much (or all) of Troma Productions output, “Stripperland” is beyond rubbish, it rates more like what you scrape off your shoe if you step into something nasty.
The acting, although not at all brilliant, we can accept as ranking in the green zone for low budget Zombie films. I have seen much worse. The concept isn't all that bad. A generous person might call “Stripperland” an homage to “Zombieland” or an even more generous person might call it a satire or parody of that infinitely better film. A more realistic person might conclude, as I do, that the makers of “Stripperland” just lacked the imagination to do better and were just too careless and lazy to try. These guys didn't set out to make a good Zombie movie and fell short. They set out to make a pile of crap to sell to 13 year olds for their lunch money. I think they failed even at that.
I admit to having some surprise that writer/director Sean Skelding put his actual (or at least his professional) name on this thing.
This film (a lose use of the word) carries a strong “R” rating for numerous topless shots of blood covered lady Zombies and more or less constant shots of lady Zombies dressed like strippers. The gore, while plentiful, is done for laughs not for terror.
James Challeen as Frisco and Maren McGuire as Virginia turn in performances that we can appreciate and are the only reasons to see this terrible film. Poor Maren McGuire does double duty as a Zombie that Frisco blows away with a shotgun.
“Stripperland” rates a single brain and I feel I exhibit my generous nature in giving it that one brain.

I loved this for what it is...a campy humorous Zombie movie. I found it very entertaining. Great characters and very original plot.Published 3 months ago by James R Bennett
