Summary: Returning from their latest stint in jail, boozy pals Julian (John Paul Tremblay), Bubbles (Mike Smith) and Ricky (Robb Wells) plan to go legit once and for all -- only to find old nemesis Jim (John Dunsworth), the newly sober manager of their trailer park, preparing to demolish their homes.

Countdown to stupidness
Reviewed by GregMO ROberts

If you’re a Canadian, you know who the Trailer Park Boys are. Ricky, Julian and especially Bubbles (played by Robb Wells, John Paul Trembley and Mike Smith). With countless seasons of their television program, the Trailer Park Boys are well developed. Ricky is the foul-mouthed drug dealer that aspires to make the quick buck any way he can. Julian is the ‘smart’ one of the trio and is identifiable by his tight t-shirts and right hand that is always sporting a rum and coke. And Bubbles, the innocent cat lover that dons the coke-sized glasses that make his eyes look like an animated Asian cartoon character.

These three screw-ups live are close friends who live in a trailer park and are constantly being harassed by Jim Leahy (John Dunsworth), the trailer park supervisor and his shirtless minion Randy (Patrick Roach).

When the Ricky, Julian and Bubbles get released from prison and return to the park, they are faced with an aggressive Leahy that is trying to displace the trailer park residents thanks to a development plan that requires the a pipeline to go through their property. So Leahy has to devise a plan to get them to hand over their land, which consists mainly with bribing them with updated trailers in a new development.

Meanwhile, Ricky and Julian start up new get-rich quick schemes that include a marijuana grow-op and a semi-legit auto body shop. Anyone who is familiar with the characters knows that both plans will be undone by incompetence coupled with bad luck.

With their plans in the proverbial toilet, Julian comes up with the idea to rob a bank and constructs al elaborate scheme to do such without the use of violence or guns. This too gets foiled thanks to Leahy who while back on the hard liquor, threatens suicide during the teams getaway thus thwarting a clean escape.

Shot in the traditional documentary type fashion with the characters breaking the fourth wall and talking directly to the audience, Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day is crass, immature garbage that lowers your I.Q. for every second you stay glued to their exploits.

But that is no different from their television program and you have to appreciate that they don’t try and sway from what they do best in bring a feature length story to the big screen.

There are a few good laughs in the Countdown to Liquor Day. Many of them come from the embarrassing situations that these trailer trash put themselves, mostly running around half naked in public. The biggest laugh comes from the Leahy character. In particular when he tries to drive, drink and piss at the same time.

If you are not familiar with the Trailer Park Boys, you should be warned that you will experience half naked men, smoking pot, swearing in their Canadian accents and drinking while driving between their illegal endeavors.

This doesn’t make the film a classic, either in the traditional sense or with any ‘cult’ creed. But it watchable tripe. And the three leads are interesting enough to keep you entertained for 90 minutes.

In the end, the three end up where they always do. Back in prison. But with only a couple week’s sentence, they should be back at the park and in another movie before long.
