After hitting a slump with The Slammin’ Salmon, the comedy group behind Super Troopers and Beerfest are back with a new feature. Premiering at SXSW to a mixed response, we’ve got a trailer today for the film directed by Jay Chandrasekhar and starring Paul Schneider, Olivia Munn, Paul Schneider, Aisha Tyler, Kevin Heffernan, Wood Harris, Constance Zimmer, M.C. Gainey and Nat Faxon.
The trailer for The Babymakers is somewhat entertaining and while not all the jokes land, it’s more of the same raunchy Broken Lizard humor, Which can be a good or bad thing, based on your comedy preferences. It’s also nice to see Paul Schneider grab a lead comedy role after great roles in Park & Recreation as well as a number of indie films. Millennium Entertainment is smart to release this on VOD as well, since it seems like the perfect film for that format. Check out the trailer below via Apple.
