Puddle Cruiser: Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar. With Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter. A student falls in love with a fellow student who is defending his buddies in university court. He “proves his love” (more like his masculinity) to her by playing rugby against her ex-boyfriend.
It’s Broken Lizard, but super dooper young and in their very first film, so really this movie is only for fans of the group and want to see everything they’ve done. It’s a fun movie that takes a look at what “modern” college students were doing in the dating scene, circa 1996, many of the jokes fall flat, but just as many hit well enough that they were able to build on this film and make their next film, which was Super Troopers.
The one highlight of buying this $2 dvd from amazon? there’s a short 17 minute documentary about their journeys to several different college campuses to show off their film, which is a cool look at both who they were at the time and what colleges were like.
