This week on End Credits, we get lit on 4/20! No, wait! That is to say we get excited about the release of Super Troopers 2, which was released on April 20th. On this episode, we tackle the newest comedy from the Broken Lizard gang, which has lots of Can-Con for us to discuss. Before that though, we dive into the major release calendar to find summer movies that don’t fit the usual definition of “summer movies.”
This Wednesday, April 25, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
1) Summer Lovin’! This week, the traditional summer movie season starts a little earlier than normal with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. And that’s summer, right? Superheroes, franchises, sequels, and remakes of other popular movies that have created the same. Not so fast though because there are actually a lot of different, and original movies that are also scheduled to be released over the next couple of months.

REVIEW: Super Troopers 2 (2018). In 2001, members of the Vermont Highway Patrol had to survive budget cuts and their own instinct to screw up in order to save their jobs and get the bottom of a murderous drug ring threatening their idyllic community. Also, there were a lot of pranks and jokes. Now, 17 years later, the Troopers are back in business, but on the Canadian side of the border. After a successful crowd funding campaign, the Super Troopers are back on patrol and in another adventure, this time with lots of in-jokes that likely only Canadians will fully appreciate.
