I've never lived in Canada, so I haven't been able to enjoy the TV series on which the movie Trailer Park Boys is based. I can't tell you how faithful the movie is to the TV show. I watched the movie, which had its U.S. premiere at SXSW, as an American being exposed to the gang for the first time. So I can tell you that you don't have to be Canadian or a fan of the show to get a kick out of Trailer Park Boys. However, you do have to enjoy drug, alcohol and strip-club humor.

I feel like I could essentially recycle my Smiley Face review for this movie: it's the same overall tone and has similar lightweight humor, although Trailer Park Boys pretends to have more of a plot. Ricky (Robb Wells), Julian (John Paul Tremblay) and Bubbles (Mike Smith) reunite after Ricky and Julian are released from jail for trying to rob an ATM. They all live in Sunnyvale Trailer Park: Ricky lives in his barely functional car next to his girlfriend Lucy's trailer, and Bubbles lives in a shed with innumberable adorable cats. Julian reveals his great criminal idea: robbing parking meters and other change dispensers because they can't get jail time for robbing change. Ricky, however, wants to go for "the big dirty," an enormous heist that will give them enough money to retire, so Ricky can enjoy life with his longtime girlfriend Lucy and their daughter Trinity, and grow weed on the side. While they're debating over their next job, the trailer-park manager Mr. Lahey is plotting to evict them so he can have a trouble-free community.
