Trailer Park Boys: The Movie



Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, also known as Trailer Park Boys: The Big Dirty, is a 2006 Canadian comedy film based on the hit television series Trailer Park Boys. The film follows characters Ricky, Julian and Bubbles creating a plan for The Big Dirty, the largest heist of their lives. The film is directed by Mike Clattenburg, produced by Barrie Dunn and Mike Volpe and executive produced by Ivan Reitman. It was released in Canada on October 6, but releases in other countries are still to be revealed.

Kicked out from jail days before the guard/inmate ball hockey final, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles return to Sunnyvale trailer park with a plan for The Big Dirty, the largest heist of their long criminal history: a dimwitted scheme to steal vast quantities of change – since it’s untraceable.

Meanwhile, Ricky is pondering taking his relationship with longtime girlfriend Lucy to the next level when he discovers that Lucy has some newly enhanced anatomy and a job at the Gentleman’s Club. Later, visiting the club, Julian meets and falls for the beautiful featured dancer Wanda and the Boys have their first encounter with Sonny, the dangerous owner of the club.

As the day of the Big Dirty approaches, The Boys train less-than-able assistants Cory and Trevor. But before their plan can succeed, they will have to outrun helicopters, survive shootouts and face down drunken Trailer Park Supervisor Mr. Lahey and his cheeseburger-loving assistant Randy in a deadly game of Sunnyvale Chicken.

Trailer Park Boys was the highest grossing movie in Canada for it's first weekend in release October 7-8, 2006. The movie grossed an estimated $1.3 million at the box office in its opening weekend becoming the 11th top grossing film in North America. It had a per-screen average of $6,632 over the three-day weekend, and played on over 200 screens.

* Cory and Trevor's transportation: In the TV series, Cory and Trevor gets a ride with either Ricky or Julian. In the movie, Cory and Trevor have a snowmobile with regular wheels instead of treads as a use of transportation.
* Sarah: In the TV series, Sarah spends most of her time with Cory and Trevor. In the movie, Sarah is a lesbian that was with Lucy at the start at the movie, but after Lucy married Ricky, she found another woman to have a relationship with.
* Bubble's shed: In the TV series, Bubbles lives in a store bought shed. The first one was burnt down by Ricky and now has a new shed thanks to Julian. In the movie, he lives in a shed made out of lumber, plywood, and a plastic roofing. The first one was destroyed when Mr. Lahey backed up his car into it, but thanks to the Big Dirty, he got the material to build a new one
* Julian's Lovelife: In the TV series, Julian had three relationships that ended short. One with Candy, one with Tanya (which was just a trick to steal the hash from him), and one with Erica Miller. In the movie, when he went to the Gentleman's club with Ricky, he met Wanda and had a relationship with her. Turned out that she was a wanted criminal and was sent to jail, but Julian waited until she got out.
* Most of the titles at the movie theatre are Tragically Hip songs titles, as shown when Julian orders tickets to "The Dark Canuck", as song from the album In Violet Light. As well, some of the titles are Rush song titles, and 2112 is printed on the Money Ball they steal.
* The Tragically Hip's lead singer Gordon Downie also has a cameo in the movie, he plays one of the police officers that arrest Ricky and Julian.
* In the court scene at the end of the movie, the man who played the harsh prosecutor in the trial in "If I Can't Smoke And Swear I'm Fucked" is the now the kind-hearted judge, and the woman who played the kind-hearted judge in the same episode plays the boys' unenthusiastic defense lawyer in the movie.
