Between an ongoing feud with the local cops over whose you-know-what is bigger and the state government wanting to shut them down, the Super Troopers find themselves patrolling the boundaries of good taste as they hilariously and unwittingly skid towards solving the crime of their lives.

The clear allure of this movie is that it's filled to the brim with zany antics. It's Dumb and Dumber and Wedding Crashers with badges. From the beginning chase scene with the stoned kids who were littering and, littering and, littering and smoking the reefer, to the various Farva idiosyncrasies that make his character one deserving of a sequel, Super Troopers is without a doubt one of the funniest movies ever made.
Keeping up consistent laughs is the key to a really good comedy, and therein lies the greatness of this movie. Even a toned down scene of serving coffee at the station or eating breakfast at a local diner - there is no way someone could chug that much syrup - is saturated with humor.
Rather than spoiling the various gags with all sorts of detail, it's best to just highly recommend this laugh-riot. For maximum pleasure, I recommend inviting German swingers over, having a pre-movie viewing of Afghanistanimation, serving nothing but liters of cola, and listening to the cat on your lap gently meow.
Super Troopers takes the audience to the small town of Spurbury, Vermont, where a group of state troopers take their profession to a whole new level. Troopers Thorny, Rabbit, Foster, and Farva are constantly hazing each other to prove their masculinity, and they oftentimes use unconventional methods to teach lessons to law violators.
Budget cuts in the town put the small group of state troopers in danger of being one of the cutbacks. Their constant shenanigans along the way get them into trouble, and their public image suffers when their loathsome comrade Farva (Kevin Heffernan), lets his inappropriate humor and aggressive outbursts get the best of him. Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar) leads the troopers under the authority of Captain John O’ Hagan (Brian Cox), who is doing his best to keep the group in line and find a way for them to keep their jobs.
What began as a few high school students caught smoking marijuana in their car turns into a murder case that leads to the discovery of a significant marijuana smuggling problem in the town of Spurbury. The Super Troopers start a race against their rivals, the Spurbury Police Department, to crack the case and prove themselves valuable upholders of the law. Along the way, a pretty young blonde and rival police officer named Ursula (Marissa Coughlan) falls in love with Foster (Paul Soter) and aids the group in solving the case.
While this film has a great comedy aspect, the plot is pretty watered down and predictable. The comedy is what provides the lure of this movie. In fact, the actors in this movie are a part of a comedy troupe called “Broken Lizard” that began on the collegiate level in 1989 and has made several movies together since. The actor’s comedy experience is certainly an asset to the movie. All of my favorite scenes showcase this talent.
In one such scene, the troopers are teaching a lesson to three high school students who were smoking marijuana in their car. After seeing the troopers, two of them order the guy in the backseat to eat all the drugs, including some mushrooms one of passengers pulls out of the glove compartment. Just when the troopers speed past and the students think they have gotten away with it, the troopers pull a U-turn and come after them. The three are pulled over multiple times for going sixty-three in a sixty-five. Meanwhile, the guy in the back seat, who has just ingested a copious amount of marijuana, has eyes as wide as silver dollars.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys cheesy comedy. The plot is such that you can watch this film lazily and half-heartedly. It is perfect for those evenings when you just want to vegetate in front of the T.V. after a long day.
This arresting comedy is one you can quote for years. Although it may be hard to admit that anyone thoroughly enjoyed this movie, I can guarantee you that you will have laughed and smirked embarrassingly at parts of this movie. Jay Chandrasekhar's Super Troopers is one of those stupid-comedies that is surely one that will be remembered for much time. Jay uses strong comedy that lacks a major plot, plays with his strong characterization, and for Jay's production some parental review is suggested. Super Troopers interacts with the concept of poking fun at the fantasized highway police and those they encounter while cruising the slow and boring highway.
The absence of a true plot may be a spoiler for some and even forgotten by others simply there because a co-worker quoted the movie once or twice in amusement. This multi-plotted story consist of two divisions of police force, local and highway. With the threat of the highway patrol being shut down the "Super Troopers" are in desperate need of something big but their juvenile type personalities constantly get in the way of any prosperity. Adding a little bit of romance to the mix a pair of "forbidden loves" from opposite squads bend the rules with an anything but Romeo and Juliet feel. The fight between the two forces has been ongoing. Super (state) Troopers are out for a good time and ignore the fate of time. They are faced with a reviling chance to redeem themselves on the discovery of some illegal drugs, but the city cops are ones to step on their feet. In an anything but intense rivalry the comedy is consistent and keeps the crowd awake for the time until the next joke. The movie's most funny moments disappointedly take place within the first couple of minutes, though the rest of the movie tries to keep up with such hilarity is fails slightly.
Personalities of each individual cop make this movie well rounded and fitting to the comedic scheme of things. The childish events and playfulness are portrayed in a magnificent style. The character Chandrasekhar portrays is the highly respected but highly childish Thorny who is in charge of the crew. Kevin Heffernan plays the outcast named Farva in a memorable but minor role throughout the movie. Much of the cast takes on a much similar role of that of Beerfest simply, well, because it's virtually the same exact cast. The two are symmetrical in their values, which is none. Provided to simply entertain, Super Troopers is the perfect fit for those who wrote it themselves.
With this juvenile humor, this is no place for kids. This movie takes our public figures and completely removes all authority. The movie exploits the cops with them taking bong hits and chugging gallons of alcohol like it's their 21st and then going out to drive. It is strongly advised to stick to the movie regulations. For the older age this is a fun movie with a basic understanding of the faux reality of the law enforcement lifestyle. This is just a forewarning to any of those who think they can distrust the rating of movies.
Poking fun at authority and those who we look up too as strong social figures is a strategic way to gain the attention of a large crowd. Although a few of these situations are more than unlikely, the ill developed plot is one that is just positioned perfectly in the shadow of its comedic endures. The characteristics are that of strategic genius for each state patrolman. Super Troopers can bring you some good laughs so, sit back, relax and try not to think about it too much.
