Earlier this month we found out that production on the long-awaited Super Troopers 2 had finally been completed.
This of course meant that we would be seeing the first trailer for the sequel soon, and this week, that soon became right meow. A first teaser trailer for the movie has indeed been launched, and as an added bonus, if you missed it, an official release date was also set recently.

After being without the internet for about a month, perhaps longer, I was finally able to surf the interwebs at home. And so I had to get all caught up on what I had missed out on, then it was time to fire up the ole PS3 and see what was on Netflix Watch Instant. I know the whole Disney library was added and a bunch more, but I figured the easiest way to get caught up, just go through the recently added ones. Well as you can see, The Babymakers was the first one that I came across that I was somewhat interested in watching.
I was a big fan of Olivia Munn when she was on Attack of the Show, and wished her all the best when she left. It seemed that most of the movies she was involved with ended up being straight to DVD releases, which is never a good sign. But luckily for her, she had a great 2012, with being on The Newsroom and Magic Mike, so hopefully that luck will continue in 2013. I remember seeing Super Troopers and thought it was okay, and not amazing like most people did. And I remember Paul Schneider from Lars and the Real Girl, a great movie you should check out. It’s got Ryan Gosling in it, so that should be enough for most people.
Those who follow the Broken Lizard comedy team have been awaiting word that Super Troopers 2, the sequel to their classic 2001 indie comedy, is officially happening for a long, long time. And will continue to wait.
Last we heard a script for the movie had been completed, but some legal complications had to be sorted out first. Now comes word that said script has been turned in to Fox Searchlight, but said legal complication still needs to be worked out. If it is—and they do seem to think it will eventually be resolved—then the movie is a go.
The Babymakers DIRECTOR: Jay Chandrasekhar

RELEASE DATE: August 3, 2012 (limited)
I love me some Broken Lizard. The comedy troupe behind movies like Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest, and The Slammin’ Salmon have brought me hours of joy (often times of the drunken variety).
The Babymakers isn’t a Broken Lizard production, unfortunately, but it does relate to them. Jay Chandrasekhar (director and star of the aforementioned Super Troopers, Club Dread, and Beerfest, as well as director of multiple episodes of hit shows like Arrested Development, Chuck, Psych, and Community) directed the movie, and Kevin Heffernan (the much-quoted Farva from Troopers) star in supporting roles. Paired with lead stars Paul Schneider (who I loved in Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and Olivia Munn (who I’m also a big fan of from her days on Attack of the Show), create a comedy I can get behind with a gigantic smile on my sometimes-hard-to-please face. With all of these components so appealing to me as a movie fan, The Babymakers was easily a must-see flick.
