The Slammin' Salmon

The Slammin' Salmon is a 2009 comedy film by Broken Lizard. It is about the owner of a restaurant who holds a contest to see which one of his waiters can earn the most money in a single night. The winner receives $10,000, and the loser receives a "beat down" by the owner, Cleon Salmon, a former heavyweight boxer (played by Michael Clarke Duncan). Kevin Heffernan directed the film, his first time for a Broken Lizard film.

Plot

In Miami, Florida, the sadistic and vacuous retired heavyweight boxing champion Cleon Salmon owns the critically acclaimed sports-themed restaurant The Slammin' Salmon. His staff comprises manager Rich, socially inept Nuts, callous Guy, pre-med Tara, ballet student Mia, bit player Connor, and chef Dave with his busboy twin brother Donnie. Cleon orders Rich to make $20,000 for the night to pay the yakuza, whom he owed said amount after losing a bet hunting albino in Japan; otherwise, the yakuza would take the restaurant. Cleon explains that he is strapped for cash as he just bought "some land on the moon next to John Travolta". Rich reluctantly agrees, horrified that if he refused his order, Cleon would get beat up and decapitated as what he did to his dead boxing opponents.
