Puddle Cruiser is a 1996 comedy film, the first full-length film created by the Broken Lizard comedy group.

It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie was filmed entirely on the campus of Colgate University. It was released on DVD in December 2005; the disc also features a 17-minute documentary called Rodeo Clowns on the marketing of Puddle Cruiser and Super Troopers by shilling free previews on college campuses and using specially-painted tour buses. The extras and actors are almost entirely friends, family and other alumni, due to the very low budget of the film.

Synopsis[edit]

Set in Coburn University, the movie centers around Felix's (Steve Lemme) relationship with Suzanne (Kayren Butler), who has been designated as Matt (Paul Soter) and Grogan's (Kevin Heffernan) defense in a trial after being caught breaking into the campus cafeteria. Zach (Jay Chandrasekhar) tags along. The film was shot at Colgate University.

Accolades[edit]

It won the 1996 Golden Starfish Award at the 1996 Hamptons International Film Festival where it received a positive review from Variety (magazine) [1] and split the award with Matt Mahurin's Mugshot [2].
