As regular readers here will know, there is a Broken Lizard film called the Slammin Salmon that I have been dying to see since I first heard of it. And now the film is FINALLY getting a release on DVD and Blu Ray on April 13th!
I was a little surprised not to see Michael Clark Duncan on the cover as he was one of the primary reasons I wanted to see this. Well that and Cobie Smulders – Robin Scherbatsky on How I Met Your Mother. But still excited its finally coming out.
In the latest comedy from Broken Lizard, “Slammin’” Cleon Salmon (Duncan) is a terrifying bull of a man, who uses fear to rule over his misfit wait staff – the Broken Lizard troupe, as well as Cobie Smulders and April Bowlby. On this particular night, he takes his bullying skills to a new level. In an effort to pay off a gambling debt to the Japanese Yakuza, Salmon sets up a contest to “inspire” his wait staff to sell more food than they ever have before: the top selling server wins $10,000 while the waiter in last place gets served with a broken rib sandwich – courtesy of the Champ himself.
Spurred on by greed and panic, the staff resorts to backstabbing, bribery and indecent proposals in an attempt to up-sell their patrons while simultaneously sabotaging their co-workers. As the hours pass, the dining room action becomes more frenzied as the contest escalates into a brawl for first place in order to win the money.
And check out the Trailer.
I can’t wait to see this!!
