"Broken" Wizards

Some hoity-toity film critic types will tell you that the only good films are small, personal, character flicks. The sort of film where depressed people sit around and don't talk about their infidelities, or do talk about their infidelities, but in preciously-set kitchen scenes and "awkward" party talk.

I tend to subscribe to a larger world-view. And that's why I await Beer Fest with the sort of excitement that Roger Ebert probably reserves for french impressionist cinema. You can check out the trailer here.

Those poor souls who've never seen Super Troopers may not understand the allure of five grown men in a Beer-drinking competition, but I can assure you, the "Broken Lizard" group (who also brought us Club Dread, which grows funnier with each viewing but cannot hold a candle to the lowbrow/highbrow brilliance of Super Troopers) are kind of geniuses.

Do yourself a favor and rent Super Troopers this weekend. Ingest something fun beforehand. Then try not to cry laughing as you watch.

Super Troopers is the Movie By Which We Gauge Others. If you don't like it, you won't like us. I actually just met my quote-quota of the day just a minute ago, come to think of it.

"Our shenanigans are cheeky and fun!"

"Yeah, his shenanigans are cruel and tragic."

"Which makes them not shenanigans at all, really."

"Eeeeeevil shenanigans!"
