Time Out says

Whether you consider Broken Lizard a thinking-man’s fratboy ensemble or Monty Python for the drool-cup set, the troupe’s full-tilt asininity offers a rare opportunity to laugh at a movie without feeling like you’re the one being played for a fool. This genre mash-up (part Fight Club, part The Dirty Dozen), about an underground Teutonic brew-chugging competition, is frequently inspired (Chandrasekhar’s early scenes as an unlikely male hustler are hilarious), despite lasting a full half hour too long. Like a barf-free beer bender, it’s never less than sloppy fun. (Now playing; Click here for venues.) — Mark Holcomb
