Trivia

The disease the Lone Diner says he is dying of, Schistosomiasis, is a parasitic "flatworm" infection carried by freshwater snails in Africa. Schistosomiasis is one of the most common parasitic disease in primitive areas. Schistosomiasis is almost never directly fatal, but a chronic years-long infection can cause organ damage, several cancers, and in children can cause developmental problems. Schistosomiasis rather easily cured with Praziquantel. See more »

Cleon Salmon: I think you're pronouncing it wrong. This says Meatdrapes.
Guy: It's actually pronounced Metdrapedes.
Cleon Salmon: Well, why doesn't it sound like that when I say it? Meatdrapes.

Great ensemble comedy form the brilliant Broken Lizard Crew
27 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While people are going to INSTANTLY compare this to Super Troopers on how it doesn't reach that standard (easily the funniest and most quotable movie of their repertoire) and while it is slow in the beginning, the movie easily has you laughing with the absurdness. Each character is flushed out well enough for the movie's purposes, and each gives you the right laughs at the right moments. Quotable, outlandish, and insane. A mix of Waiting meets Glengarry Glenross meets...well...Super Troopers. However, if this STILL hasn't won you over, there is one sole reason to see this movie:

Michael F***in' Clarke Duncan.

HOLY hell did he have fun with this script. His character of the Champ has the BEST lines of the whole movie, and I almost wonder how much was scripted and how much is just him going off the chain. Best lines of the movie:

(while admiring his sister's triplets) "Look at the little babies! Hey, it's Uncle Cleon. Damn, they all look the same. What did you do, f**k a Xerox machine?"

(to Japanese translator) "How do you say 'motherf***er' in Spanish?"

and my personal favorite— "You know what ten grand feels like in your pocket? It feels like a third c*ck."

Seriously, get some beers, grab some friends, and watch this movie. It's good times.
