The Slammin' Salmon Mines the Sad Plight of Miami Waiters for LOLs


The latest flick from Broken Lizards, the comedy troupe behind Super Troopers and Beerfest, takes aim at a scene that seriously deserves to be taken down a notch -- fancy Miami dinning. The Slammin' Salmon, like many of its real-life counterparts, is a Miami restaurant with an obnoxious celebrity owner, stuck-up cliental, and slow business (presumably after they got trashed by Lee Klein). The owner and former boxer (played by Michael Clark Duncan) owes money to the mob, so he entices his staff with a $10,000 bonus to the top-earning waiter of the night. Like most plots in the Broken Lizards oeuvre, this one is a little dumb, and all that matters here are the brilliantly stupid jokes. "How is everyone feline tonight?" (cut to cats). Ha-ha-ha, comedy at its finest.

Here's the red band trailer (NSFW, for language and brief glimpses of buttocks). The movie will premiere later this month at the Slamdance Film Festival.
