Trailer Park Boys - The movie

HALIFAX (CP) - The cast of television's Trailer Park Boys, the Canadian cult comedy series, are taking their small-time schemes to the big screen.

Ricky, Julian and Bubbles will begin filming Trailer Park Boys - The Movie this summer in Halifax in a bid to expand an already-faithful audience for their foul-mouthed, dope-smoking ways and seemingly endless series of half-baked plans to make money.

Hash and pot aside, though, their biggest score would appear to be moviemaking heavyweight Ivan Reitman, who's taking the executive producer's chair for the boys' foray into film.

Reitman, whose credits include comedic classics like Ghostbusters and Animal House, thinks the TV series will work well in a feature film format.

"This is a very funny group of guys, they're a fresh comedic voice, and we think it'll translate," the Canadian-raised Reitman told a news conference Thursday in Halifax.

"I think the screenplay . . . focuses the things that you've all come to love in the show in a way that will work, both for their historical audience and for audiences that have never seen or heard them before."

Trailer Park Boys, the TV series, has just launched its fifth season on Showcase, has won a Gemini for best comedy series, and is currently the highest-rated Canadian series on specialty television.

The new season's 10 episodes feature the boys dealing with a pair of comical drug-dealing creeps, a driveway made out of hash, and a plan to ship dope across the country in shopping carts.

Essentially, they're a bunch of underdogs trying to scheme their way out of their economic hole in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park, somewhere near Halifax.

Promoters of the movie, set for Canadian release in mid-2006 by Motion Picture Distribution LP, promise more of the same, only "with crazier antics, better dope, stronger language . . . and the mother of all scams."

During interviews in Halifax, Reitman declined to explain why he thinks the TV show is funny.

"But it's successful because it touches real lives. I think it has an enormous amount of heart," said Reitman.

"I think even though it deals with a certain spectrum of society that actually doesn't get dealt with much in North American comedy, I think it basically speaks to real experiences that we can sort of get behind and understand, and get somewhat emotionally involved with."

The film features the original TV cast and producers, along with Mike Clattenburg, the series director, head writer and creator.

Clattenburg said the movie will be produced on a relatively small budget of under $5 million Cdn.

"So the film will still be a low-budget feel and look - it's one of the charms of the (TV) series, we'll always keep it."

And they'll also be keeping the gutter-level language.

"I think the film will be an R-rated film," said Reitman. "There's been no attempt to change the tone of the movie from the tone of the television show."

Trailer Park Boys - The Movie includes the involvement of Alliance Atlantis, and is being produced with participation of Telefilm Canada and the Nova Scotia Film Development Corp.

The best Canadian Tv show ever made.

TP boys is easily the best Canadian tv made. i know many of you will argue vociferously with me that "Ann of Green Gables", "The Beachcombers", and even hardcore action junkies will say that "The Littlest Hobo" was the best, but

"Fuck Julian, this show is funny"

the show last year when they set up the "Rub and tug" in the trailer park and had Cory and trevor (2 ubiquitous male stoners for those who don't partake in the show) fill in when they ran out of sps was fucking funny.

you might feel 1/3 of one IQ point dummer after you watch the show, but you will laugh your ass off.

dumbest fuckin' show I have ever seen....

and not in a good way.

I watched it for 5 minutes once.....and turned it off when I realized I could actually feel myself getting stupider.

But not before I wanted to go get myself a gun and shoot them all for being so fucking stupid.

Then you were probably taking the show too seriously. It's deliberately bad and when you watch it with that frame of mind then you see how fucking hilarious it really is. Also I see it as something of a "protest show", in that it's a fine creation of sarcasm that is slamming the whole wide range of the truly stupid reality-shows.

Trailer Park Boys & Most Extreme Elimination Challenge: the only "reality" shows worth watching. :D

It took me awhile to warm up to TPB's. I have now watched every show and my favorite is the microphone assassin. Where J to the mother f*#king ROC gets caught pulling his goalie.

"It could happen to you cus it happened to me". Still laugh everytime I think of that song.

it is definitely a love it or hate it show. there is not a lot of middle ground. if you enjoy the clever parodies, satirical jests, and just plain honest to a "fvcking T" depiction of white trash Canada, then you love the show. I can accept people who hate the show because there is alot of swearing and slapstick humor, but i find the show a liberating breath of fresh air. i believe the show has mass appeal because each of us has "known" or had a friend who was a real life Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, JRock, Leahy, Randy, Lucy, or whoever.

the characters are all so well written, unique, and the acting is great. Can you imagine keeping a straight face with some of the lines they have to deliver?

Its a great show, but I hope that trying to make it into a feature length film doesn't destroy it by forcing onto it plot requirements that don't really suit the nature of the humour. Lots of good sketch comedy has been ruined trying to expand it to film length.

I love Lucy's new boobs ... she's even dumber than last season. Sara you gotta calm the fuck down. Or a little lez action between the two could heat things up!

Funny seeing Ricky doing Lucy in the doorless shitbox when the cops pulled up last night!

even simple jokes like Randy walking around everywhere without a shirt on.

think about all the times every summer where you see some idiot with a beergut without his shirt on inside a store..

Julian always with a rum/coke in his hand (even when playing ball hockey last night)

Ricky with his continuous KNock Knock jokes. or his Mr. "this or that" jokes. and when he went back to finish grade 10 and all he kept saying was "fuck grade 10 is hard". or when Ricky got out of jail and all he wanted was to get drunk and eat chicken fingers. the non stop pepperoni eating.

Try FUBAR

If you like TPB (and what sane person wouldn't) try FUBAR, it's very much in the style of TPB and is the story of the fucked up lives of a couple Calgary metalheads. Like TPB you'll watch this and go -- hey I knew/know guys just like that.

i saw FUBAR (Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition) for those unfamiliar with the acronym. 2 mullet-head stoners who have low pay/low responsibility jobs in a warehouse getting drunk and stoned 24/7.

it was filmed in Calgary and Banff. when those headbangers went camping, it was fvcking classic. those two idiots riding down hills in shopping cars, the whole nine yards of stupidity. pretty funny movie.

RE: Trailer Park Boys....

"Excuse me your Honor, if I can't smoke and swear in this Court Room...then I'm fucked..." [Ricky making a plea for his own defence for drug charges]

I'm Lovin it...

Great series.....

I wish my life was like that.

Later,

when Jrock made the first Porno in his mom's trailer. Ricky was broke and needed money so he agreed to do the porno, but BUBBLES was willing to do it for free IF he got a blowjob. then Jrock's mom comes home and Bubbles is still screaming and swearing for his free blowjob.

Paying Randy in Cheeseburgers. Him and Lahey "coming out of the closet". Jrock "quitting" his rapping career and coming outside the trailer as "Jamie" in his polo shirt and gap outfit. the "bar-b ques",

also in season 1 or 2, when everyone kept "telling" Ricky that he was "gay" and then Ricky started to wonder if he was gay. Julian's response "Rickey, you are not fucking gay, you are just fucking stupid".
