Status: Released

You seriously cannot call yourself a Canadian until you have seen the Trailer Park Boys. For those of you entering Sunnyvale a bit late, Here is a quick refresher:

The Trailer Park Boys is a Canadian series originally created and staged by Mike Clattenberg as a made for TV movie about three ex-convicts and friends who get into get rich quick schemes at the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park somewhere in Nova Scotia. Blossoming into a series broadcast on Showcase it was filmed in a style that has become known as Mockumentary which is essentially a documentary within a show. Julian (John Paul Tremblay), Ricky (Robb Wells) and Bubbles (Mike Smith) are constantly at odds with Park supervisor Mr. Lahey (John Dunsworth) and his loyal lackey Randy (Patrick Roach).

This presentation filmed live in Austin Texas is a tour de force of “The Boys” at their best complete with all the hilarity and bits that fans have come to expect. Since the three actors have gained the rights to the series from Mike Clattenberg, they have really been carrying on the tradition of Sunnyvale that we all love while introducing new audiences to their escapades via many new platforms. Sunnyvale has come a long way since 2001

My Rating: 4/5 Stars: Some folks might get tired of the crook lifestyle and swearing, but it is to be expected from this comedy. Like most people say “It’s Not For Everybody”
