The Broken Lizard boys have built a following out of their signature brand of fraternal comedy; RT brings you the scoop on their latest flick, The Slammin’ Salmon, straight from the set!

They’ve tackled law enforcement (Super Troopers); they’ve done horror-comedy (Club Dread); they’ve even tread the sudsy world of underground drinking contests (Beerfest). Now, the quintet popularly known as Broken Lizard — comprised of college buds Kevin Heffernan, Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske — have enlisted the help of Michael Clarke Duncan to bring you a comedy about the joys and sorrows of food service. We’ve got your first look at The Slammin’ Salmon here:

Broken Lizard Slammin' Salmon

In The Slammin’ Salmon, Broken Lizard’s fifth feature film and the first to be directed by Lizard Kevin Heffernan, the fivesome star as employees of a seafood restaurant owned by former heavyweight boxing champ Cleon “Slammin'” Salmon (Michael Clarke Duncan). One night, Salmon inaugurates a competition among his waitstaff: the waiter who makes the most money in one evening wins $10,000; the loser wins a beating by Cleon Salmon himself.
