Broken Lizard is surrounded by limber, wanton women on a booze-soaked island resort owned by Coconut Pete, a rock star has-been. But the non-stop party takes a turn for the weird when dead bodies start turning up. Everyone begins to look suspicious. Could it be Sam, of the Fun Police brigade, who is quick-on-the- trigger with his tequila loaded super-soaker; Jenny, the over-sexed, fitness instructor; Juan, the flamboyant diving instructor with a secret third-world past; Putman, the bratty-British tennis coach/fanatic; Dave, the ecstasy-crazed, adopted nephew of Coconut Pete; or the burly masseuse blessed with a creepy touch–that can render anyone into instant Jell-O? Can the inhabitants of Pleasure Island unite, solve the mystery and restore happy hour to this tropical bacchanal?

Did You Know?
Originally, there were a few scenes that explain more about Steve Lemme's character (Juan) – apparently, he grew up on a goat farm – but they were the first to be removed from the film.
Before Juan and Penolope start kissing, she gives him a hat, and it falls to the floor. When he remembers he has to make s'mores, Penolope doesn't pick the hat up, but after he runs away, she drops it to the ground.
Much Better Than It's Reviews
I have been sitting and reading the completly brutal reviews of this movie
for about two hours now and I guess me and my two friends are the only
that found this movie HILLARIOUS.
As the movie started, I was thinking "Oh great, Scary Movie 4". But the
that Club Dread went on, the jokes got better, and I couldn't stop
From Sam the fun police to Jenni (played by the super hot Brittney Daniel)
each charecter was histarical. Especially Cocanut Pete who everyone seems
think was a unfunny atempt at Jimmy Buffet, in case you didn't notice, in
the movie they take a shot at him being a Jimmy Buffet rip off "Play
And before you dismis my recamendation as yammering from a Broken Lizard
boy don't think so soon, I have never seen any other Broken Lizard flicks,
but after this wonderfully executed movie, I plan on it.
I think it sums up to you have to have a certain since of bizar humour at
some points and just keep a open mind when watching the movie. It wasn't
best movie I've seen by far, but I am going over lines in my head this
morning from two nights ago and still laughing.
Broken Lizards Club Dread is a extremly funny movie that doesn't deserve
be bashed like it is. It is a very funny….. comedic slasher. The Jimmy
Buffet rip offs and cheesy ending is exactly what Broken Lizard was aiming
for, and if you look at it like that, many of the "mistakes" become funny
oposed to angering.
