17 years after the boys of the Vermont State Troopers wreaked havoc in small town of Spurbury, Broken Lizard's infamous law enforcement officers are back for more! Super Troopers 2 is finally here, after what seems like an eternity in development hell, and a brief stint in production. Which means that our selection of the film as this week's Rate and Discuss is all the more interesting, as almost two decades worth of history will come into play as you tell us what you thought of the film.
Vulgar, stupid, but still a hell of a lot of fun, Super Troopers 2 is a serviceable sequel that delivers some laughs and nostalgia but not much else.

Was Super Troopers 2 worth the wait?
Which of the new jokes was your favorite?
Which callback made you laugh the most?
Do you think Super Troopers 2 marks a return to form, or an evolution of style, for Broken Lizard?
After seeing Super Troopers 2, are you more or less excited about the prospect of Beerfest 2: Potfest?
Meow we're about to head into the Suggested Reading section, but before we do, let's answer the most burning Broken Lizard question you're probably asking right meow. Yes, the gang does have a concept for Beerfest 2: Potfest, and if you want to see it, you need to get out there and see Super Troopers 2. And if you were pleased that both the Shenanigans and "Meow" callbacks were included in the film, you can thank Broken Lizard for that personally, as they knew that those were the gags that had to come along for the ride. But perhaps the most fun bit of news we could report from the guys at Broken Lizard is the fact that they're dying to see the Vermont State Troopers pursue a classic Batman villain in a future film, and joke or not, we're kind of all in on this.
If you'd like to see all of our coverage on Super Troopers 2 in one spot, you can head over to the film's preview page for everything you wanted to read on Broken Lizard's latest.
