All your favorites from the 2001 original movie return in this sequel. When a border change occurs in Vermont, the Super Troopers get their jobs back and a chance to redeem themselves.
Captain O’Hagan contacts the group as they are working construction under the supervision of Farva. When the government of the US and Canada realize the border line is really a little north of where they thought it was, they ask the former Vermont State Troopers to set up a post in the disputed area. Mac, Rabbit, Thorny and Foster are happy to get their jobs back, unfortunately Vermont’s governor (played by Lynda Carter) includes Farva in the assignment.
Welcomed to the town by the mayor (played by Rob Lowe), a former hockey player who owns the bordello in town, the guys immediately are set upon by the townspeople who are unhappy with the change. Not only is the town against them, but the former Mounties who served in the area are being reassigned farther north and target the Troopers, showing them they aren’t wanted.
More slapstick comedy with drug use, nudity and oh so many jokes. The movie has a loose plot but appears to be one running joke after the other. Most of the jokes in this movie are about the differences between Canadians and Americans, from the way they say “Sorry” to the metric system. Michigan people will get the references much quicker than people from other states, since we have Canada in our backyard.
This movie seems to appeal more to guys than women. The silly over the top humor is in your face and doesn’t take a lot of thought. From kicks to the groin to “caulk” jokes, there’s no subtlety. Everything is fair game as well, from sex with a moose to lactation. But for fans of the original movie, this one will be a walk down memory lane.
There are some fun cameos in the move such as Damon Wayans, Jr. and Seann William Scott (from the American Pie Movies). In addition, it was nice to see Lynda Carter on screen again. Rob Lowe played his character over the top and seriously, did he really touch that?? With an extra scene surrounding the “Savage” incident, and outtakes during the credits, you will want to stay to the end.
Unless you are a fan of the original movie, you probably want to skip this one. The raunchy comedy could easily be watched at home, saving yourself some money.
Laugh out loud potty humor, Blockers leaves you with a smile on your face.
Three girls meet in elementary school and quickly bond, creating a long lasting friendship. Their parents also become friends. Flash forward, it’s senior year and prom night. The girls make a pack to lose their virginity. But when the overprotective parents find out, they are determined to stop it from happening.
Hilarity ensues as the parents (played by Leslie Mann, John Cena and Ike Barinholtz) set out chasing after their children, going from prom to after party and finally to a hotel. The teens have no idea their parents are following them in an effort to stop them from making the ‘biggest mistake of their lives.’
Prom night is a big rite of passage for teens. Parties, drinking and sex are pretty much the norm these days as students live it up one last time before graduation and college. The teens are really very normal. The pretty girl has a hot boyfriend, the sporty girl looks to find a way to get “rid” of her virginity and the closeted lesbian is afraid to share with her friends so she fakes it with a guy. It’s the parents who are crazy!
Lisa (played by Leslie Mann) is a single mom who thinks she’s her daughter’s best friend. But what happens when her daughter longs to escape mom’s friendship? Lisa worries her daughter will make the same mistake she did by having sex and getting trapped too early in life, giving up her dreams and sets out to stop her daughter. Many moms can relate to Lisa. We long to have a wonderfully close relationship with our children and sometimes step over a line.
Mitchell (played by John Cena) has been his daughter’s coach and biggest supporter. She’s a killer soccer player as well as strong and self-assured but as he realizes his daughter is turning into a woman, he balks at it, longing to keep her his little girl forever. He has a problem with her date, the “chef” who likes to bake drugs into everything and has a man bun. Cena is hilarious as the straight guy in the comedy. His nerdy persona allows him to be the “butt” of the jokes.
The final parent is Hunter (played by Ike Barinholtz). He’s divorced after being caught sleeping with the babysitter. Not close to his daughter, he seeks to provide her with the most memorable prom night ever and tries to stop Lisa and Mitchell from interfering. Ironically, Hunter is more in touch with his daughter than either of the other parents.
With nudity, swearing, sexual situations, drug use and potty humor, this movie isn’t for younger audiences, nor do I believe the teens will see this movie as hilarious as the parents. They can’t empathize with the parents who would do anything for their children. While a funny movie, it isn’t a blockbuster. Either go with the cheaper matinee or catch it on pay per view. But certainly one which will have you laughing out loud.
It's all about the movies...
