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.
It's all about the movies...
