Tagline: The only difference between you and them is a coupla drinks

Plot: The boys return from jail to find the park has deteriorated, with a brand new park being created beside it. They attempt a series of get rich quick schemes and robberies, while a freshly drunk Lahey threatens to derail their plans.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Already this year I've gone through the 7 seasons of the show twice and all of the movies. I can't get enough of these guys.  The story is almost inconsequential, taking the backseat to the antics of the boys and Lahey & Randy.  Being a theatrical extension of the TV show things get ramped up a little.  They do a wonderful job of keeping the intimate feeling of the show and it's really only the last fifteen minutes with the bank heist and car chase that take it to the next level.  Even though this picture doesn't have the laughs-per-minute the show or the other movie it's still a fun ride.  I really dug the burgeoning love interest with Bubbles (Smith) and the vet chick and how about J-Roc's (Torrens) rap performance during the end credits?  He really sells that character. Hell, they all do. I fucking love these characters.  They're hilarious and I don't ever want this trailer park train to stop.  I can't wait to see their latest, TRAILER PARK BOYS: DON'T LEGALIZE IT (2014).
