Quotes

Dave: Why do they call you Nuts?
Nuts: Because I'm crazy.
Dave: You don't look crazy.
Nuts: Oh I'm insane. You should see me without my meds. My last job, didn't take my meds one day... an hour later, I was walking around naked with peanut butter in my hair, telling people my name was Zongo. I delivered an old lady a cup of hot water with my balls in it.
Dave: [laughs nervously] Talk about your Red Zinger.
Nuts: Yeah, but I don't remember any of it. My balls were red though.
[thinks, chuckles]

The Slammin' Salmon (2009)
6 January 2012 | by SnakesOnAnAfricanPlainSee all my reviews

I love Broken Lizard, and I always end up watching their films multiple times. It will be no different for Slammin' Salmon. The plot is obvious, but it's simply there to set-up some jokes. Heffernan takes a shot at directing and he's talented enough to serve the script. Unlike other Broken Lizard films, the characters have an absolutely equal share of screen-time, there's no obvious protagonist. Cobie Smulders and Michael Clarke Duncan add some extra comedic chops, and it's nice to see some of the supporting regulars around. If you're looking for a strong plot or painful belly laughs, I doubt you'll be satisfied. But, if you like gentler laughs and well strung together sketches. I have a feeling this will be a grower.
