The Slammin' Salmon

 A promising new comedy by Broken Lizard (the creators of "Super Troopers" and "Beerfest"), is movie about a bull of a man Cleon Salman who owns a restaurant named after him, The Slammin' Salmon.

 Cleon rules with fear over his employees and raises the stakes to a new level when he loses a bet to the Japanese Yakuza in gambling. He plans to pay off the bet by inspiring his employees to participate in a contest where his waitstaff has to sell all the food they can in one single night with a prize of "$10,000" to the winner and a knuckle sandwich to the loser who sells the least - courtesy of the Champ himself.

Spurred on by greed and panic, the staff resort to backstabbing, bribery and indecent proposals in an attempt to upsell their patrons while simultaneously sabotaging their co-workers. As the hours pass, the dining room action becomes more frenzied as the contest escalates into a brawl for first place in order to win the money.
