I really advice seeing the TV show first, before seeing this movie. It will not make much sense to you if you haven't saw ot. Directed & created by Mike Clattenburg and based off, the characters of his first two films, 1998's One Last Shot & 1999's Trailer Park Boys. The Canadian comedy mockumentary television series, with the same name of the 1999 film, focus on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents, some of whom are ex-convicts, living in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The show became so popular for its mockumentary style comedy that other shows started to mirror their style such as the American improv cop comedy, Reno 911! (2003–2009) and the smart British office comedy, the office (2001-2003). Three movies were made to capitalize on the success of Trailer Park Boys show. The first one is 2006's The Trailer Park Boys the Movie. Follow by 2009's Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day and then 2014's Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It! One of the main things that make Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It, differ from the other films is how low budget, it was. In my opinion, most of this movie, could have play out as a 3 part episodes series of a season. There isn't much to look at. It's pretty plain. In my opinion, some of the season finales, were more epic that this film. It didn't felt like a movie. The crimes and stakes here are very weak and not "Greasy" enough, compare to the previous films. I was really hoping for something grand, like a heist scene. Instead, this movie, has Julian (John Paul Tremblay) devised a stupid scheme to get rich: where he's going to sell clean urine for drug testing. This entails driving a large quantity of pee to Montreal to sell to a buyer. Along, the way, Julian's best friend, Ricky (Robb Wells) recognizes that the Canadian government's plan to legalize marijuana might threatens his pot-selling business, so he wants to protest the bill in Ottawa. Last is the optically-challenged Bubbles (Mike Smith) whom has inherited a home and some land from his deceased parents and is eager to check it out. As the three make their journey, they are chased by their nemesis, trailer park manager Jim Lahey (John Dunsworth), and his perpetually-shirtless sidekick, Randy (Patrick Roach) looking for a way to send them to jail for good. I felt that the road trip plot was kinda a letdown. The story lines never came together in a really satisfying way. Nothing, really funny or entertaining, happens on the road trip. They don't meet, any strange new characters. They rarely get into any big funny criminal hijinks. Because of this, the pacing was a bit odd. It takes for the boys to even get started with road trip plot. It wasn't until 40 minutes in that they decide to leave Sunnyvale Trailer Park. While, the follows the same guild lines tropes of any of their season finale, with somebody getting arrested. The structure is poorly timed. It opens with a gloomy scene with everybody going to a funeral. In many ways, I thought this was the ending scene and the movie would flashback to the real beginning, and show the events that lead everybody meeting at the dump. Instead, the movie doesn't show, anything about it, and just tells us, on camera, that one of the characters has die in an off-camera explosion. I felt that this opening wasn't needed, since it has nothing to do with the main plot. The twist toward the end, wasn't strong enough to carry it. The movie's canon is ambiguous, as it contains several inaccuracies to the show. It doesn't really match, the 2008's TV special, 'Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys'. The whole Bubble's parents subplot in the film doesn't match up, with the 2004's Christmas Special. It felt like a mess of a film. There were some badly done jokes, but the humor is mostly a hit to the funny bone for me. I love all of the Lahey's cocaine sequences. I think the best thing about this film isn't the humor. In my opinion, it's the speech that Ricky delivers to the Canadian Government. This movie demonstrates that he's got a fairly good knowledge of the law, to the point where he actually successfully argues, how two-faced, their government can be, when it comes to making marijuana, legal. Most of the cast is known for their extreme method acting so it had to be good. They rarely break character. Each of the characters has their own particular trademark mannerism or trait, so it had to be good. Bubbles show his acting chops, in some really emotional scenes, here. Patrick Roach actually stood shirtless in cold weather. According to production notes, Roach never complained once. That's shows, how willing, everybody is, at their work. Sadly, this was the last appearances for one of the longest supporting cast members. Richard Collins who plays Philadelphia "Phil" Collins passed away during the last week of filming. Overall: The repetitive cycle of crime, hasn't yet got old. The chemistry between the leads hasn't lost a beat. The foul language, lowbrow humor and slap-stickly violence still works. In my opinion, Don't Legalize It shows that Trailer Parks Boys isn't done, yet. This movie is a must-watch for any Trailer Park Boys fans. When the show ended in 2007, it look like, it was on its final run. Surprising, this movie got the fan base so eager for more, Trailer Park Boys that Netflix pick it up, and started production on a 8th season in 2014. It's nice to see that this film, help bring the show, back. That only, makes this film, worth seeing.
