    They are doing an Indiegogo crowd funding for the movie. If this is crowd funded rather than studio produced, i think the movie will be a LOT better than if paid for by the studios. 24 hour in and they are at 83% funding already.

    This thing is nearly fully funded in 24 hours. They better not shit the bed after promising a better movie with more money.

    I watched some super troopers last night just because of this. One of the greatest comedies of our era.

    why don't any of these crowd funded projects ever offer any return on investment?

    It's because they aren't investments. you are purchasing the goods that they are offering.

    Dave has got the right idea.
    Give me some back end and I'd throw some money at this.
    I don't do enough drugs to think any of the other stuff is worth my investment, but apparently plenty of other people do, so let them have at it.
    The 200% return on the first movie is pretty attractive. I find it hard to believe that they can't get the capital through other means.
    I would think between Washington, Colorado, DC and the "medicinal" crowd in CA that they would recoup the $2 mil investment easily.

    I think the issue is more on Broken Lizards end. They want creative control and the only way to do that is to raise the cash themselves.

    Do they show a dick when Farva says "You guys are dicks"? Hard to tell on my phone. 1:14 or so. Fight Club style.

    I agree with this. And it's exactly why I would throw them $100. Plus I'll get some tickets and a movie poster out of it.

    Crowd funding is kind of like the perfect example of Capitalism. The collective consumers are deciding which products are worth bringing to market. If no one wanted this movie. No one would have funded it.

    he's a buddy of mine who apparently hates the idea of crowd funding. lol

    i'm not sure what happened, but he really went off the deep end on that one.

    just signed up for the $100 contribution.

    they are 2.5mil (125%) in 2 days lol. 30 days left.
    it'll probably slow down for the rest of their campaign, but it'll be cool to see how much they end up raising.
    some of the high priced bundles are ridiculous lol.
