"I'm not familiar with the Broken Lizard troupe, but this movie was a great and humorous surprise. Michael Clark Duncan is hilarious as Slammin' Cleon Salmon. While this movie will never be considered one of the great cinematic masterpieces of all time, it is a dang funny movie with a hilarious cast. This is the perfect move to watch with a group of slightly drunk friends on a Friday night. If the movie is lacking anything, it would be a weak link. This is comedy at its best."
Very Funny Movie

"First off: Don't buy it on Blu-Ray. There is no reason to, and you can save a few bucks if you just buy it on regular DVD. The movie itself is very entertaining. It has a breezy tone that is great. The characters are all funny, especially Nuts. Broken Lizard movies hinge on the chemistry of the actors, and where they faltered with "Club Dread", they succeeded with "The Slammin' Salmon". All the actors work well together, with major props going to Michael Clarke Duncan. He was much funnier than I was expecting, and had some of the best lines. I highly recommend this movie if you are looking for an entertaining, light-hearted comedy."

"Don't get me wrong, the movie was ok, but just barely. The plot was a pretty bad idea in the first place. I really enjoyed Club Dread and Super Troopers, and thought Beerfest was decent. All of Slammin' Salmon took place inside the restaurant which got boring fast. Club Dread had a much better plot and scene. The highlight of the film, and really the only moments I laughed out loud were with Zongo."
Not up to their original standard

"The Slammin' Salmon is a mildly humorous attempt to document the comedies of daily life in a restaurant. The movie highlights Slammin' Cleon Salmon's attempt to pay off a gambling debt with one night of sales in his restaurant, all while seemingly inept employees are constantly sabotaging their own jobs and each other. The employees of the restaurant are promised a handsome reward if they are the top seller, getting Salmon to his goal of $20,000 in sales. The night ensues with crazy antics and wild attempts to coerce patrons into spending more money on top dollar items. Each employee is trying to one-up the other. Unfortunately, the movie lacks consistent comedy and leaves the viewer with relatively few moments of laughter. The creators of Super Troopers really did not provide a solid encore performance with this movie. I'm glad that I don't have to eat there!"
