I couldn't have wrote a better review of this movie. I also agree with Chris J. about Broken lizards being 2 for 4 with their movies.

This review is from: The Slammin' Salmon [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) This is a another movie from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. This has their blend of outrageous story line and over the top laughs. The usual suspects perform wonderfully and are peppered with some great additions. Michael Clarke Duncan is great as the one time boxing champ turned restaurant owner. If you like any of their prior movies, Super Troopers [Blu-ray], Club Dread (Unrated Extended Edition), Beerfest (Unrated) [Blu-ray], then you will enjoy this movie.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) First off I had never seen anything by Broken Lizard so I was a bit eager to watch as it had some mixed reviews that I checked out before watching. By the end of the movie I was left wondering why I just put myself through watching this and how much more entertaining info and commercials are... Throughout the movie you could see where they were trying to be funny but they always fell short... The movie took alot of play into a restaurant and more importantly the kitchen... I just didnt understand many points in the movie and just when you got a slight glimmer that things would look up it just took another turn for the worse. They movie is full of crude references and is completely raunchy at times but maybe that is just how I am viewing it but it is an R-Rated movie so thats probably where that plays into it. I do have to admit after watching I was really wary of my food and only ate stuff that I prepared myself... I couldn't recommend this movie to anyone.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) 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. If you go into this movie just looking for a good chuckle, you'll most likely get it. It was perfect for a Saturday night in, which is when we watched it. Besides Michael Clarke Duncan, the rest of the cast was unknown to me and I think that was a good thing. Duncans character was one that was familiar to seeing him play and not knowing the other actors allowed me to enjoy them for what the movie was meant to be - pure entertainment. Unless you are a such a fan that you have to own this movie, I would recommend getting it as a rental instead.

If you're a fan of Broken Lizard (Super Troopers and Beerfest) then youwill absolutely love this movie. I am one of those fans and must saythat not only do the 5 members of Broken Lizard impress as always, butthe other additions of Cobbie Smulder, April Bowlby and of courseMichael Clark Duncan are fantastic.The Slammin' Salmon is a restaurant owned by a former boxer (MCD) wherethe the wait staff leader (Farva - Heffernan) is told that if theydon't make 20k, the restaurant will close. He decides to offer a prizefor the top server and the competition begins.This movie works because it clicks on many levels. It has humor that'scheesy, dirty and clever mixed in with one liners. The contrast ofJay's craziness, MCD's anger and Cobbie's innocence meshes so well itwould be hard for any person who likes to laugh to hate this movie. I would recommend this movie to everyone except for those taking theirgirlfriends to a romcom.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) My only previous experience with Broken Lizard has been Super Troopers, which I thought was just fantastic. Although 'The Slammin' Salmon' has many funny moments, it just doesn't measure up to Troopers. The premise of the movie is simple, but as someone who has worked in a restaurant before, there were some hilarious truths. Michael Clarke Duncan plays an intimidating and irrational boxer who owns the Slammin' Salmon. He does an amazing job and really makes this movie worthwhile. The movie follows a great cast of restaurant wait staff competing to make the most money for the night to win a prize. There are so many conflicts and sub-plots that you are never bored. I have to say that the beginning of the movie moves kind of slowly but once it gets going, the laughs keep coming. I think it's a good movie to put on and watch with friends. Good times will be had!

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) I'm not going to slam the actors in this film because they were all competent in my opinion. I had a problem with the script. I would since I'm a writer. The actors were funny. If given a more polished script this film would have been what it should have been, an excellent comedy. However, with the amount of tasteless bathroom humor, especially the scene in which the rich movie star wants to propose to his girlfriend (Sorry, spoilers!!!!)and the ring inadvertently gets swallowed by the restaurant's manager and he has to defecate it back out again...I'm going to have to say this film is watchable for the actors' performances. But the writer should have excised that scene and written something classier. Instead whomever made the final decision went with the obvious and allowed the poor woman to eat the dessert with the ring that had been inside the bowel movement of the manager, which he only gave a cursory rinsing after retrieving it. That's a gagging moment, folks. Not funny at all. Then again, I should probably apologize to the writer for my comments because, knowing Hollywood, the poor writer didn't get any respect and his perfectly good script was re-written by 'experts' who didn't think it was funny enough. Ah, well. I wanted to like this movie because I like Michael Clarke Duncan and several of the other cast members.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) This was my first Broken Lizard film, and I was not disappointed. It's a wild ride of zany, enjoyable comedy that manages to be both silly and quasi-intelligent at the same time. In particular, I appreciated the fact that the film's setting was limited to a restaurant over the course of one evening, which gave the movie the feeling of a two-act play. And best of all, rather than being a throwaway gross-out comedy, this one is clever enough that it probably deserves repeat viewings. I know that I will very likely re-visit my DVD from time to time. Great concept, hilarious characters, and fun to watch with adult friends. Recommended for a rental, possibly a low-price purchase.

The filmography of The Broken Lizard comedy troupe is very muchhit-or-miss. Their latest restaurant comedy The Slammin's Salmon is oneof the troupe's true wins. Kevin Heffernan directs this heated contestat a high-profile Miami restaurant whose aim is to try to earnsufficient money to save the restaurant being used to pay off agambling debt. Obviously, The Slammin' Salmon is not going to win anyawards for creativity, yet the film has what it counts the most incomedies: it's very funny from start to finish. Similarly to SuperTroopers and Beerfest, the humor can be described as situational andwhile some set-ups result in predictable outcomes, the majority ofjokes is quite clever leading to even bigger laughs by the end. Thecharacters are diverse enough to surprise us displaying near-perfectcomic timing. Michael Clarke Duncan starring as an overbearing chief isa standout. His performance is so over-the-top that virtuallyirresistible. I wish every comedy was so immediate and apt indelivering laughs as The Slammin' Salmon. 7.5/10 (B)

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) THE SLAMMIN' SALMON is my first Broken Lizard film, but it won't be my last.....considering the fact that it went straight-to-video, my expectations were low, but I was pleasantly surprised by how funny a film it was. THE SLAMMIN' SALMON is the name of a trendy seafood restaurant owned by World Champion Boxer "Slammin" Cleon Salmon, and when he loses a bet he made with a Yakuzu Boss while they were "Japanese Albino Hunting", he needs to make a quick twenty grand, so he initiates a contest for the wait staff: Whoever makes the most money that night gets $10,000.00....the loser gets a "Broken Rib Sandwich". Although everyone in the ensemble cast acquits themselves nicely, Michael Clarke Duncan steals every scene he's in. Someone needs to cast him in more comedies, because he definitely has some great chops. While it's not gut-bustingly funny, the film has more than it's share of laughs. The DVD also has two commentary tracks by members of Broken Lizard, the theatrical trailer, and a short featurette where the troupe talks about their own experiences working in reataurants.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) I guess if you were a fan of Broken Lizard this might be a great comedy for you. A lot of the jokes were flat. Maybe it would be funnier if you had several drinks before you watched. If you do watch this movie don't eat out at a restaurant for a while. Maybe this movie is more for people aged 25 or less or younger than 17, Sorry it has a R rating. As an older adult it mainly falls flat. Of the 339 movies released in 2009 it ranked 322 and this was a Christmas season release! I don't even think the theatres wanted to show it! Don't waste your money on this or wait until it is in the $5 bin at WalMart. I hope that nice restaurants are not like this in the kitchen.

This review is from: The Slammin' Salmon (DVD) I'm a big fan of Broken Lizard and Slammin Salmon doesn't disappoint.Not as good as Super Troopers or Beer Fest, but still a really great movie.

Customer review from the Amazon Vineâ¢ Program (What's this?) Leave your regular comedy expectations at the door. This movie has more of a 'play' type feel to it, than a regular comedy movie. The entire movie is set within an upscale restaurant, and the waiters are competing for a big cash prize. To make it even more interesting, everyone is crazy scared of the boss, boxing Champion Cleon Salmon, who is pretty much dangerously insane, but somehow likable. The Champ has threatened to give the lowest performing waiter a 'broken rib sandwich' which everyone desperately wants to avoid. All the comedy pretty much is played from this conflict as they try to trip each other up. The comedy plays off the characters - it is very character oriented with a several cameos. Some of the comedy is crude, and the language is past rough, but it's fresh and entertaining, and my family all liked it.Broken Lizard fans will love it - Super Troopers was a bit better, but this is very good. Broken Lizard has turned around a lot of their cast stereotypes from last efforts but it works just as good as ever. There's some great one liners here too, and I can imagine that I'll be hearing a lot of them from my son and husband, who love to dredge up funny lines from movies JUST like this.

This review is from: The Slammin' Salmon (DVD) First lets just say the obvious, this movie is funny and you have to watch it more than once. The movie came exactly as described and arrived quickly. I'm extremely satisfied. Will purchase from this buyer again!

This review is from: The Slammin' Salmon (DVD) This movie is hilarious! So many good scenes and quite a few big names in this one. I was skeptical at first because of the name, but this film turned out to be really funny.

A team of waiters is forced to raise $20,000 in one night... and theone who gets the biggest bill will receive $10,000 as a bonus (theloser gets a punch in the ribs). As you might expect, the humorincreases as they try to one-up each other! First, I have to give ashout-out to the character Tara (Cobie Smulders). By far the bestcharacter in the film -- believable, likable, and just plain wholesome.I hope to see Smulders in a lot more films soon, as she is easily atop-bill-worthy player.I think this is the best Broken Lizard film since "Super Troopers".With "Club Dread" being a flop and "Beer Fest" being hit and miss(still a good film), this one is pretty consistent. Sure, they recycledthe twin joke, and some of the ending parts are predictable... but ifyou've ever worked in a kitchen, you should appreciate this one. (I'veseen others say "Waiting" is better. I strongly disagree.)

I watched this movie about a year ago, and really thought it was funny, especially Michael Clarke Duncan. Now I'm watching In the Weeds and thinking, hey this is exactly the same movie... I get that these guys poke fun at movies/genres, but this is a little to literal. Anyways, it does take "In the Weeds" to a new level of ridiculousness, but not too far to be enjoyable. It's not exactly a smart movie, but has some good laughs.

This review is from: Slammin' Salmon (Amazon Instant Video) Don't get me wrong, the movie was ok, but just barely. The plot was a pretty bad idea in the first place. I really enjoyed Club Dread and Super Troopers, and thought Beerfest was decent. All of Slammin' Salmon took place inside the restaurant which got boring fast. Club Dread had a much better plot and scene. The highlight of the film, and really the only moments I laughed out loud were with Zongo.
