Super Troopers 2 is a 2018 American comedy film directed by Jay Chandrasekhar. A sequel to the 2001 film Super Troopers, the film was written by and stars the Broken Lizard comedy team, made up of Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. The plot follows the Super Troopers being called upon to set up a new Highway Patrol station when an international border dispute arises between the United States and Canada.
The film took many years to come to fruition as studios doubted that a sequel, produced over a decade after the original, would find an audience. After a successful crowdfunding campaign produced $2 million in seed money in 24 hours (and $4.7 million overall), the film was greenlit and principal photography began in the Central Massachusetts area on October 23, 2015. The film was released in the United States on April 20, 2018, by Fox Searchlight Pictures. It received generally negative reviews from critics, who criticized the rehashed and lazy jokes and called it “a long-awaited disappointment.”
Years after the first film, the guys have been fired from their jobs as police officers due to a screw-up and now work in construction with Farva as their manager, but an international border dispute arises between U.S. and Canada, and these five wacky guys are given a chance to be state troopers again and set up a new highway patrol station in the disputed area of Canada.
