Slammin' Salmon Trailer

I don't know how, but in the last few years, the Broken Lizard guys have lost all their Hollywood support. No studio will make their movies anymore so they've gone the independent route. Their newest feature, Slammin' Salmon, premiered at Slamdance earlier this year, but didn't get a distributor until much later. Now it's finally hitting theaters in December, but probably not near where you live. Either way, Apple has released a new trailer for Slammin' Salmon and it still looks good. I love these guys for exactly who they are - a group of funny guys who love making funny movies. It's not for everyone, but I think it looks hilarious.

You can also watch the new Slammin' Salmon trailer in High Definition on Apple

The owner of a restaurant institutes a contest to see which waiter can earn the most money in one night.

Slammin' Salmon is directed by Broken Lizard member, and first-time director, Kevin Heffernan (probably best known as Farva from Super Troopers). The screenplay was co-written by everyone in the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, that's made up of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske. Their past films include Puddle Cruiser, Super Troopers, Club Dread, and Beerfest. Anchor Bay Films is finally bringing Slammin' Salmon to very limited theaters starting on December 11th this winter.

Yup, it definitely looks independent alright.

MCD features pretty predominately in that trailer. Is he really the funniest thing in the movie? Really? MCD?

Ivanhoe Martin on Nov 6, 2009


Uh, they lost their Hollywood support because they make unfunny movies...just like I'm sure this one will prove to be.

Kevin on Nov 6, 2009


I thought it looked pretty good!!

AT on Nov 6, 2009


Also, I love Cobie Smulders (from How I Met Your Mother).

AT on Nov 6, 2009


Also you can't feel the rings.

AT on Nov 6, 2009


I've never really seen Michael Clark Duncan using his muscles. This looks pretty good. Why is Olivia Munn in this?

xerxex on Nov 6, 2009


It looks ok, but why don't they do Beerfest 2? (Potfest)

That Awesome Norwegian Guy on Nov 6, 2009


meh. I may check it out but I'm not dying to see it.

Seductive Flamingo on Nov 6, 2009


looking funny! i'll be seeing it.

beavis on Nov 6, 2009


hey xerxex, Munn is in it because she probably "performed" well on the casting couch. that HAS to be the reason, because she sure as hell can't act.

beavis on Nov 6, 2009


Haha amazing!

tankmaster on Nov 6, 2009


aww that's mean beavis, but true LOL. she should stick too attack of the show.

Xerxex on Nov 6, 2009


@Xerxex and beavis I don't think anyone in this is really renowned for their acting to be honest.

Gopie on Nov 6, 2009


@6 Nice Futurama reference 🙂

Victor on Nov 6, 2009


well her career was started on G4 and thats good enough she really dosen't need to branch out, she's already making damn good money, same goes for Jessica Chobot, she post's a photo of her in a bikini and licking a psp. Alex you say that the people of broken lizard hae lost all of their Hollyweird support, and yet the bastards that "Direct" (if you can all it that) crap movies like "Diaster Movie, Superhero Movie, Date Movie, and Meet The Spatrans get support? umm...methinks hollyweird is full of shit.

xerxex on Nov 6, 2009


I never thought their stuff was funny. Beerfest was the only mildly funny thing they've done.

JimD on Nov 6, 2009


Why in the living fuck is Olivia Mun in this? The skank can't act worth shit..

nem on Nov 6, 2009


hey leave olivia munn alone, she's in iron man 2 as well

darrin on Nov 6, 2009


First comedy Lance Henriksen has been in?

David Banner on Nov 7, 2009


...last place gets a broken rib sandwich.

Shane on Nov 7, 2009


looks funny as always. these guys are the best.

Al on Nov 7, 2009


Why do they keep fuckin around and making lackluster shit...Screw Beerfest or a possible sequel Potfest you fucking stoner, it was alright but GET ONTO MAKING SUPER TROOPERS 2 GODDAMMIT !!!

CORNBOY on Nov 7, 2009


Robin from How I Met Your Mother scores the most points in this movie.. At least for me. Not really my thing.

coswell on Nov 7, 2009


So, Kitchen Confidential the movie?

Luc on Nov 7, 2009


Looks great...but it will be a rental. One to watch AFTER the kids go to bed...

Frank N. Stein on Nov 7, 2009


Wait Farva directed this? Honestly not to judge too quickly but no wonder this looks shitty...

Cody on Nov 7, 2009


Yuck. Another crap american comedy. Do people actually think this is funny?

N on Nov 8, 2009


N whats the point at taking a stab at american comedy? And yes we do think it is funny, not everything needs to be an oscar contender, these guys are doing what they love and if they want to make a not so good comedy, then let them.

xerxex on Nov 8, 2009


I thought the trailer looked pretty good. Will definitely be a netflix pickup for me.

Terry Myers on Nov 8, 2009


i thought the first 2 minutes of super troopers was good but that was it. i'll have to wait till cable to see if these guys have gotten funnier.

subcelsious5g on Nov 8, 2009


@xerxex No, not everything has to be Oscar contender. The genre is too subjective for awards, most of the time. You may like people running into walls and vulgar jokes, nothing wrong with that. I'm a more british-comedy kind of girl. You share your cup och tea, and I mine.

N on Nov 8, 2009


Super Troopers was horrible. It was amateur at best. There is a reason studios wont fund their stuff. Its garbage. I never understood the niche following of supertroopers. Then again its probably the same group of people who thought Clerks was brilliant.

JimD on Nov 8, 2009


super troopers was the only good movie they ever made. beerfest sucked. club dread was awful. puddle cruiser was a piece of shit. this actually looks good though.

Brian Ricci on Nov 8, 2009


@N Well then we have something in common, I'm have an obsession for English comedies, from the very first time I saw Monty Python when I was young. But I'm not gonna knock an American comedy, and physical comedy is funny, and I know for a fact that British comedies have vulgar and physical comedy as well i.e. Shaun of the Dead a mixture of both. Well I'm digress, at least we both agree that English comedies are good. regards.

xerxex on Nov 8, 2009


These assholes are untolerable. They're on the same level as Happy Madison. And that's too bad, because... Lance Hendrikson is fucking awesome.

Branden on Nov 8, 2009


wow.... i'd rather watch american pie twelve. mcd is the funniest guy in the movie....... are you kidding me? and the swordfish? wtf? i'VE seen better props in a high school play.

indyjack on Nov 9, 2009


Beerfest was the most funniest movie (in this context) EVER. Agree with you Alex, they are funny as hell.

D. on Nov 9, 2009


Looks terrible. It's all been downhill for them lately.

Jonnythan on Nov 9, 2009


@ 38 - Then you must have went to some poshy ass highschool. My highschool had cardboard cut outs. This looks hilarious. on a side note, Olivia Munn is hot as balls in July!

that guy on Nov 9, 2009



subcelsious5g on Nov 9, 2009


Won't judge it based on this - but as well edited as the trailer was, MCD was the only funny part of it.

Antioch on Nov 9, 2009


Gotta love "Black Caesar".

Cody on Nov 9, 2009


You guys are all crazy, Super Troopers, Club Dread and Beerfest were AWESOME. This looks hilarious too... Get off your high horses and relax.

FuckyouGuys on Nov 10, 2009


WHERE AM I ??!!!??

Mart on Nov 12, 2009
