Freeloaders is a new comedy from the producers of Super Troopers and Beerfest, but it’s not directed by the same Broken Lizards guys. Nonetheless, it features their particular brand of humor and is about a bunch of degenerate a**holes (that’s the polite way of saying assholes I think).
Said degenerates are freeloaders (HEY! That’s where the title comes from!) who are feeding off their rock star buddy, Adam Duritz from Counting Crows, who has allowed them to stay and party at his place for quite some time. Duritz, being a total fucking assfuck, is growing up, getting married and buying a place in Manhattan, so he’s going to sell the house. This, of course, screws the freeloaders, who first try to sabotage their friend’s ability to sell the house by messing it up when potential buyers show up, then they decide to try and buy it. Since the place is a mansion, this might prove difficult. So they allow a porn studio to start making films there and other such shenanigans, all the while their friend can’t sell his house cause they’re big jerks.
I totally relate. TO THE ROCK STAR. Cause, after all, isn’t this what Canada is doing? Bunch of freeloaders. What’s that? You have free healthcare? You’re welcome for us protecting you with our military. I’m sure that one mountie riding a goat would really hold off China.
Canada = Freeloaders. Screw them.
Freeloaders comes from director Dan Rosen, who cowrote the film with Dave Gibbs. This is Gibbs’ first film, and while Rosen has made a few films they weren’t exactly smash hits. On the plus side, Rosen was on one episode of Denise Richards: It’s Complicated.
So there’s that.

What’s Good About It?
My favorite part of Freeloaders is that Olivia Munn is in it. Her career hasn’t really gone places. Screw her. She’s only kinda hot.
What’s Bad About It?
Why won’t Olivia Munn respond to my emails, phone calls, sky writing messages and creepy stares as she urinates? I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND LOVE.
Our Clever Prediction
As Freeloaders comes out On Demand first then in theaters for what’s likely a limited release, I don’t see it setting box office records.
