Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day is a Canadian comedy/crime film based on the popular television series Trailer Park Boys. The film was directed and co-written by Mike Clattenburg, the show's creator and director, who also directed the first film Trailer Park Boys: The Movie. Countdown to Liquor Day concludes the Trailer Park Boys franchise. It is not a direct sequel to the first film, but more of a continuation of "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys", the final Trailer Park Boys television special that ended the series. The film follows Ricky, Julian and Bubbles, this time as they return to a life of crime after being released from prison. Countdown to Liquor Day was released in Canada on September 25, 2009.

Plot

Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are about to get out of jail, and this time, Julian vows to go straight, even open a legit business. Soon the boys will all be rich. At least that's what they've told the parole board.

But when they arrive back at the park, they find it's not the same old Sunnyvale, and it's not the same old Jim Lahey, Trailer Park Supervisor. Lahey's a new man, hasn't had a drink for two years. And he has plans—big plans—for Sunnyvale. But unfortunately for Lahey, the Boys stand in his way. With his big plans for Sunnyvale going down the toilet, his relationship with Randy broken down, and having the Boys back in the park is all way too much pressure for him to bear. For Jim Lahey, the countdown to liquor day is on.

Meanwhile, Julian's having problems of his own and the Boys are forced to resort to doing what they know best—breaking the law. Lahey's descent into the liquor coupled with the Boys descent into crime puts them all on a collision course to mayhem and destruction.

Production

Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day is the second film to be based on the cult television series Trailer Park Boys, following the first film, Trailer Park Boys: The Movie. The film was directed by Mike Clattenburg, the creator and director of the series and director of the first film. Countdown to Liquor Day is not a direct sequel to the first film, but a conclusion to "Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys", the final television special that concluded the series. Much like the first film, Countdown to Liquor Day sees the cast from the television series reprise their respective roles.

Clattenburg officially announced plans to end the Trailer Park Boys franchise in November 2008. He initially wanted to end the series after the fifth season, but due to high demand, Clattenburg decided to produce two more seasons for the show. When asked why he chose to end the franchise, Clattenburg stated, "There comes a time I'd like to do more new stuff and develop in different ways."

Reception

In Canada, criticial reaction to the film has been mixed. Linda Bernard of the Toronto Star wrote that the film was "a celluloid celebration of everything that boys love about being boys; from running around in their underpants, to setting stuff on fire, demolishing structures with heavy machinery and eating fried chicken for breakfast." Stephen Cole of The Globe and Mail awarded the film three stars out of four, writing, "Trailer Park Boys succeeded because they were good company. So they are again in their second movie."

Norman Wilner of Now Magazine wrote in his negative review, "Even the fans might wonder where the laughs are this time around. Heads get shaved, stuff gets smashed and drinks get drunk, but nothing has much of a payoff." Barry Hertz of the National Post called the film "a meandering, nearly laugh-free picture." Jay Stone of The StarPhoenix wrote that the film's "shenanigans run out of steam in a hurry, a problem that Countdown to Liquor Day tries to counteract with an episodic structure that flies through several stories, each of them cruder than the last."
