The Slammin' Salmon is a 2009 film by Broken Lizard. The film is about the owner of a restaurant initiating a contest to see which of his waiters can earn the most money in a single night, with a prize of $10,000.

Kevin Heffernan directed the film; it was his first time directing a Broken Lizard film. Salmon was filmed in 25 days at the beginning of 2008.
"Slammin" Cleon Salmon (Michael Clarke Duncan) is a former world heavyweight boxing champion who retired to open a sports-themed restaurant in Miami. His antics lead to his owing $20,000 to the head of the Japanese Yakuza; needing to come up with the money in one night, he challenges the wait staff to sell more food than they have ever sold, with the top waiter receiving $10,000 in cash and the lowest waiter getting a "broken ribs sandwich" courtesy of the Champ. Comic escapades ensue as the staff try to one-up each...
