TIFF 2010 Trailer #5: Fubar 2

- Advertisement -

Michael Dowse’s 2002 mockumentary film Fubar was a major hit and is now considered a certifiable cult classic. Based on the lives of two lifelong friends and head-bangers who live out their lives, constantly drinking beer, Fubar debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in the ‘Park City at Midnight’ and ever since has gained critical acclaim and a cult status in North America, but especially within Western Canada. It was filmed entirely with digital cinematography, in and around Alberta on a shoestring budget that required many involved with the project to max out their credit cards in order to complete the movie. The movie is notable for introducing several phrases and slang words from the local head-banger and hoser culture of Western Canada into the wider English vocabulary, such as “Give’r”. Also notable is the statistic that the word “fuck” is said 274 times in the movie and later the characters of Terry and Dean were seen again, featured in the Michael Dowse-directed music video “The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism” by The New Pornographers. Well now the sequel to Fubar is ready to premiere as part of the Midnight Madness schedule at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. As usual, expect the plot to be thin, the hijinks to plenty and the laughs to be hard.


In Calgary, Terry (David Lawrence) and Dean (Paul Spence) are tired of barely scraping by. Their old buddy and “party leader”, Troy (better known as Tron) (Andrew Sparacino) gets them jobs in Fort McMurray. Flush with money and confidence, Terry starts dating Trish (Terra Hazelton), a waitress at the local strip bar. Dean plays up the part of the cancer survivor, and decides to defraud Workers’ Compensation. When Terry moves in with Trish, Dean does his best to save his friend from trading into a domestic lifestyle.
