Super Troopers is a remarkable achievement - a comedy with no established comedic stars, an unknown director, and a very low budget that seemingly came out of nowhere, to become a huge hit when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001.
And while I hate talking about Harvey Weinstein on this podcast, for obvious reasons, he was pivotal to Super Troopers' initial financial success, which only snowballed in the advent of the VHS & DVD rentals market, and positive word of mouth. The continued cult classic status though, that's all down to the chaps of Broken Lizard....
I would love to hear your thoughts on Super Troopers !
