I sort of like the Broken Lizard movies. Club Dread has a fantastic soundtrack and a few funny moments. Super Troopers was mostly good, except when it was disgusting and forgot to be funny. Beerfest and The Slammin’ Salmon had a few good scenes. Except when they went for the low-brow gross-out and forgot to be funny. Sadly, Broken Lizard Stands Up takes most of the gross-out humour and leaves out most of the funny.
There must be someone keeping these guys in check when they make their movies. Because judging by this stand-up set, all five of them think that just saying “masturbation” is funny enough. Swear words and stories about weed and sex and masturbation. Get it? Or was there a joke to get at all? I didn’t laugh too much here, and I spent a lot of time drifting away and not paying attention.
Broken Lizard Stands Up comes out September 14th from Paramount Home Entertainment. Watch it if you want, I guess. But you’d be better off just renting Super Troopers again.
