A retired champion boxer (Michael Clarke Duncan) runs a high-end seafood restaurant. In need of some quick cash he demands that the manager somehow make twenty grand in one night (far above their usual evening take). So the staff has to hustle in whatever ways they can, and of course, being a Broken Lizard flick, there are crazy hijinks and plenty of rude misunderstandings and crude jokes. It could have been fun if only the gags and jokes had been more clever and original and had gone beyond the …

I'm not familiar with the Broken Lizard troupe, but this movie was a great and humorous surprise. Michael Clark Duncan is hilarious as Slammin' Cleon Salmon. While this movie will never be considered one of the great cinematic masterpieces of all time, it is a dang funny movie with a hilarious cast. This is the perfect move to watch with a group of slightly drunk friends on a Friday night. If the movie is lacking anything, it would be a weak link. This is comedy at its best.

After reading mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect, but this wacky restaurant farce quickly drew me in and kept my wife and I entertained. If you've seen other Broken Lizard comedies then you'll know what to expect. I think this is one of their better offerings, albeit a bit more "mature" (though I hesitate to use that word).

This movie is implausible, filled with unpleasant people, and bases its humor on puerile slapstick and vulgar gags.    But you know, sometimes you want a movie like that. For those occasions when you want a light movie with jokes about alcohol, drugs, and bodily functions, this is a good choice. It has interesting camera work, plenty of action, and relatively complex characters.    The premise is this: a prizefighter turned restaurant owner needs extra cash, …

I have to admit that I was not expecting to enjoy this movie as much as I did. I am a fan of Super Troopers and Beerfest was okay, but the title "The Slammin' Salmon" left me wondering what this was going to be about.     The storyline is simple. A restaurant owner needs to make $20,000 in one night to pay off a debt and the staff has been given an incentive to make this happen. The laughs in this movie are your basic brainless, sexual, gross humor and usually at someones expense. …
