Years before Broken Lizard hit the big time with their cult hit Super Troopers, they made Puddle Cruiser! Filmed on location at the college they all met at, the movie is a low budget indie film which follows a group of guys on campus. There's none of the trademark lowbrow slapstick that they later became known for and the movie is heavily dialogue driven with a mild comic slant on their conversations. Puddle Cruiser feels like an exercise... almost an experiment so that they could cut their teeth. Its well edited and there's some great camera angles and panning shots. The script is really amateurish and the acting is average... but there's an obvious potential which explains why it was well received when presented at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995. They've come a long way and Super Troopers didn't come along for another 6 years... since then its been one comedy gem after another, with several more in the pipeline. Non Lizard lovers will hate Puddle Cruiser, but for those of us who do, Its a cool glimpse into their creative origins.
