Story: The boys return from jail to find the park has deteriorated, with a brand new park being created beside it. They attempt a series of get rich quick schemes and robberies, while a freshly drunk Lahey threatens to derail their plans.


Synopsis: Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are about to get out of jail, and this time, Julian vows to go straight, even open a legit business. Soon the Boys will all be rich. At least thats what theyve told the parole board. But when they arrive back at the park, they find it’s not the same old Sunnyvale – and it’s not the same old Jim Lahey, Trailer Park Supervisor. Lahey’s a new man, hasn’t had a drink for two years. And he has plans – BIG PLANS – for Sunnyvale. But unfortunately for Lahey, Julian stands in his way. With his big plans for Sunnyvale going down the toilet, his relationship with Randy broken down, and having the Boys back in the park is all way too much pressure for him to bear. For Jim Lahey, the countdown to liquor day is on. Meanwhile, Julian’s having problems of his own and the Boys are forced to resort to doing what they know best – breaking the law. Lahey’s descent into the liquor coupled with the Boys descent into crime puts them all on a collision course to mayhem and destruction.

    The last time i saw the boys in action, it was November of last year.Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are about to get out of jail, and this time,Julian vows to go straight, even open a legit business. Soon the Boyswill all be rich. But when they arrive back at the park, they find it'snot the same old Sunnyvale—and it's not the same old Jim Lahey, TrailerPark Supervisor.

    Lahey's a new man, hasn't had a drink for two years. And he hasplans—BIG PLANS—for Sunnyvale. Too bad for Lahey that Julian stands inhis way. Having the Boys back in the park is too much pressure forLahey to bear. With his big plans for Sunnyvale going down the toilet,and his relationship with Randy broken down, the countdown to liquorday is on for Jim Lahey.

    Meanwhile, Julian's having problems of his own. His business fails andthe Boys are forced to resort to doing what they know best—breaking thelaw.

    I remember when this show started, I wondered what the hell I waswatching, But it grew on me. ANd i absolutely fell in love with thecharacters. The only disappointment about the movie was it is supposedto be the last one. There is no real story line, but its as funny as itgets. I had a blast watching it.

    If you not into the Trailer park boys, you should still watch this. ITsa fantastic Way to support Canadian Cinema and honestly, you will laughyou head off! I miss the show and this was awesome. I am sad they wontbe back. Lok at the ratings they are getting!

    If you liked the television series you will definitely love themovie…the feeling was like this was an extended version of the showbut at the same time the show was always entertaining as the movie was…the charming and the spirit of the series transcends well to thesilver screen…the plot like on the show is not the strength of themovie the banter and interaction of the main characters is thestrength..Though i was missing the Lucy character and was of theopinion that the movie was a bit weak at the conclusion..I laughedthough frequently and was entertained and when one goes to the moviesis not that what we want to be and this movie delivers…Long live theTrailer Park Boys…

    I was lucky enough to score an advanced screening Monday.

    Where the first movie and the seventh season failed, this one didamazing. One of my biggest complaints about the first movie was thatthey had too much going, with Ricky wanting to get back with Lucy, theBig Dirty, Julian and his new girlfriend, etc. This one stayed to thestory and had amazing scenes.

    I laughed more than I did at The Hangover, and it was the first movieI've been to where the entire theater laughed. I think it was one ofthe best things they've filmed. There was a small side plot or two butthey in no way took away from the movie and didn't interfere with themain story at all and didn't take much screen time at all (which TheBig Dirty definitely did wrong).

    It did indeed feel like it was made for fans, but don't expect anythingmore than a 5 second appearance from Cyrus/Sam/George/Ted. Terry andDennis and Barb weren't in it at all. I actually feared they would dothis, but it was still a lot better than I ever could have expected.

    Wow, I did not have high expectations for the sequel to a movieadaptation of a TV show, but sometimes good writers and hilariousactors come together to make something special. Trailer Park Boys:Countdown to Liquor Day is one of those films that will remain in ourDVD collection forever. It's a movie you pull out to watch with friendsover and over again because it's so incredibly funny. I've seen it manytimes and can't get enough of it. I can't for the DVD to be outFebruary 23rd so I can finally own it. Seriously, if you haven't seenthis film you're missing out. We all love the Trailer Park Boys (And ifyou don't start with this movies!) and this is another fine outing forthem.

    Having watched everything that ever had to do with Trailer Park Boysfrom the indie black and white, to interviews on you-tube, I was fullybehind the cast and crew of the Trailer Park Boys saga when this filmcame out.

    With a great and promising lead-in with "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys"I thought there was no way "Countdown to Liquor Day" could disappointme. I was wrong.

    First and foremost, within the first ten minutes it was clear thateverything set in motion in "Goodnight" was complete abandoned, and Ican't imagine why. "Goodnight" promised a full blown last stand betweenthe Boys and Lahey, and to bring the Show Case series full circle, itlooked like Cyrus would be involved to add to the mayhem and comiccarnage. Instead were introduced to something a lot less volatile, andunfortunately, a lot less funny.

    Without going into too much detail or spoilers, the most frustratingpart about the whole movie are small subplots that on the surface haveenormous potential, but then end up being complete abandoned for noreason with no real progression to the story to boot. This bogglingstory structure could be overlooked it the outcome was some good honestlaughs, but that's another place Liquor Day falls short. The laughs aretoo few and way too far in between. Half way through the second act Ifound myself forcing laughs because I so wanted this movie to be good.But even mind over matter couldn't save this film for me.

    For fans of the saga, the lack of screen-time for supporting charactersis as equally frustrating as the story. Admittedly the entire sagarevolved round the conflict between the boys and Lahey (and Randy), butthe Trailer Park Boys ensemble cast was grown during the entire run ofthe saga and most of the supporting cast was reduced to under a minuteof screen-time.. Brief appearances of Lucy, Sarah, and Trinity go byquickly. A "re-imaged" J-Roc makes the character nearly unlikable.Token background talent shots of Sam, George Green, and Cyrus areinsulting to the characters.

    Despite what this review may imply, I am a huge Trailer Park Boys fan.Apart from this film, I find the Saga unique, pioneering, and flawless.I guess with hitting so many bull eyes, one piece of the saga was boundto miss. It's just really unfortunate that is was in it's swan song.

    Perhaps it is just the nature of the beast. Haven't we all grownaccustomed to being disappointed in the last entry to a series(especially a T.V. series, which is what TPB will be remembered as)? Itcould be that the writers feel extra pressure knowing that they willhave their characters immortalized and remembered a certain way once itis over, and in an attempt to make that last impression perfect, theyoverwhelm the audience with nothing more than caricatures of thecharacters we once loved. The first ten minutes were probably the bestpart of the movie, because it leads one to believe that it will be justanother great addition to the series. The Big 3 are fresh out of jailand appear to be back to their old ways, but once it was revealed thatJulian would be following through with his auto body shop, the movieshifted into neutral and stayed there.

    I guess I just have high expectations. As an American, I never saw anyof the shows on their original air dates and only caught wind of theseries a few years ago when Comedy Central aired The Big Dirty. I wouldcome to watch every episode on google video in about a month's time,and not once did I feel that any of the show's themes had become playedout. It took brilliant writing to keep answering the same question overand over, "How many different ways can these guys keep breaking the lawand keep pissing off Lahey?" The biggest disappointment for me was thecharacter of J Roc. He was my favorite character on the show, but whendealing with white guys who think they are black (in entertainment andin everyday life), there is a very fine line that makes you love guyfor being so ridiculous or hating him for trying to be something he isnot. On the show, J Roc was always on the hilarious side of that line,but in Liquor Day he had a new found chip on his shoulder that he neverhad in the series. At no point did he ever try to clown anybody, itjust seemed as if he was always complaining.

    Underdevelopment was also an issue. So little was done to develop thesubplot of Ricky growing dope on his own that it was hard to care whenLahey ruined everything. The series would spend so much time andinvolve every step of whatever scheme Ricky and the boys were doingthat you really felt for them when everything backfired. In the case ofLiquor Day, meh, who cares? The part at the end which finds Lahey atopthe bank threatening to jump is the epitome of the caricature point Ibrought up earlier. He had always been the bumbling trailer parksupervisor that was a drunk, but in a comedic way. By the end of themovie one almost feels concern for him as he brings a darker side tohow sick he really is (I am in no way saying alcoholism is not aserious matter, but in the series it was always portrayed verylightheartedly).

    What was missing was Barb. Barb always had a way of sobering up Laheyjust in her presence alone. Lahey would try to be a bad ass to everyoneelse in the park, but as soon as she showed up it was like she had himby the balls and he was pleading that she wouldn't twist.

    I'll keep this review pretty informal. I just want to let fellow 'TPB'fans know that this movie is yet another great addition to the series.

    Trailer Park Boys is easily in my top three shows ever made sonaturally, I was really looking forward to this film. Thankfully,'Countdown to Liquor Day' did not let me down!

    To be completely honest, I wasn't too sure how I felt about this moviewhen I first saw it. As you'll find out, there are some changes made toSunnyvale, and once again, Cory and Trevor were absent. It seemsthey'll never be back, but at least this movie didn't continue focus onJacob and the twiggy alien Trevor's. They were good characters, butthey just didn't compare to Cory and the Trevster. Anyways, afterwatching the movie a few more times, everything started to sink in andI began to spot all the hilarious little details that are alwaysincluded in the series. This movie has just about everything I wantedin a new 'TPB' movie and because of that, I couldn't be happier. Numberone, this movie feels like one long episode with some extra budget andcraziness thrown in, and number two or three or whatever number we'reon, Ricky hits us with some amazing new Rickyisms. Randy, Lahey, andthe boys are in top form here as usual and it makes for an excellentfilm!

    I really liked 'The Big Dirty', so with 'Countdown..', I was hopingthat worst case in Ontario, it would be at least as good as the latter.I feel it definitely surpassed 'TBD' and that's all I could ever askfor.

    Having watched all TPB seasons and previous movies, multiple times, Ihave to say that Countdown To Liquor Day was a real let down. I thinkany true fan of TPB would be quick to agree.

    I don't know what happened, they took too much time off, someone newwas in charge of script writing or direction, but the whole thing wasjust missing that old school TBP goodness. Scenes felt forced and offtiming, as if the actors were trying to regain the previous magic. Manytimes in TPB history, scenes and gags come and go, and I either ammildly amused or laughing out loud. But in the new movie, scenes andgags would fall flat, almost making me cringe.

    *SPOILER in this paragraph…* Another missed mark would be the plotand tone of the film. Where previously the f$%$# up beyond beliefsituations carried a surrealistic levity. One could laugh it all offbecause they characters were simply buffoons and hey, it's not realanyway is it. But the scenes falling flat and the whole suicide thingwith Mr. Layhy really made the binge drinking and reality of theirlives a little too real. This sucked the fun out of things. It was sadto see Jim at such a low state, not funny.

    I think the reason it's getting such a good score as of this posting,is due to fan-boys who blindly give it a 10 and newcomers who haven'tseen the series and think this is genius, but are missing the point andthe truly good stuff from the series.

    Oh well, I hate to write this because I love TPB and the creators ofTPB and don't wish them ill, but, I just have to speak my mind. And, Ithink, time will tell on this one. Sorry guys!! Don't try so hard!Bring it back to the dirty roots! Get drunk!

    I found The Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day was a bitdisappointing. It wasn't nearly enough to end a great franchise, and itwas a really "slow" movie (too slow for some people, who got up andleft). The events which happened in the movie were also ratherdisappointing to someone who's been a fan since the first episode. TheBoys didn't get any money, as usual, and Lahey got killed.

    On the bright side, most parts of the movie were downright hilarious,the stunts were well performed (although some were rather ridiculous),and it's nice to see a movie filmed in Halifax. I grew up in a smalltown 3 hours south of there, and we don't see many movies filmed aroundhere.

    Overall, I give this movie a 7 out of 10. Definitely worth watching ifyou've been a fan of the show, but could be better.
