Interview - Broken Lizard for "Super Troopers 2"

Broken Lizard 4

When 2001's "Super Troopers" debuted, few knew who or what Broken Lizard was. The comedy troupe was offered mainstream exposure with their second feature, and while the movie managed to find a smaller audience during its initial theatrical run, it grew into a cult sensation when issued on DVD, inspiring the Lizards to consider a sequel. Other pictures were produced in the aftermath of "Super Troopers" (including "Club Dread" and "Beerfest"), but a proper follow-up never materialized. Now, 17 years later, Broken Lizard has finally returned to the source of their greatest success with "Super Troopers 2," a long-awaited continuation (opening April 20th) that reunites viewers to the pleasures of pranks, meow-laden law enforcement, and mustaches. 

Recently, select members of Broken Lizard visited the Midwest during their promotional tour for "Super Troopers 2," sitting down for a roundtable interview to discuss their latest endeavor. The conversation features Broken Lizard members Steve Lemme, Kevin Heffernan, Jay Chandrasekhar, and Paul Soter. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com

The Worst Films of 2013

WORST OF cover

The end of John McClane, matrimonial misery, parodies galore, Lindsay Lohan’s unfortunately placed iPad, west coast sexual gamesmanship, the first of two terrible White House-under-fire pictures, Mischa Barton’s haunted apartment, the futility of fast cars, and funny people trapped in an unfunny movie. These are the Worst Films of 2013.
