When his father passes away Peter Gaulke (Steve Zahn) attempts to present the wildlife documentary programme entitled Strange Wilderness his pa made a national treasure. The problem is he smokes pot like its going out of fashion and knows nothing about animals. When the plug is due to be pulled Peter rounds up a bunch of misfits to find Bigfoot and thus save the show.
Strange. Quite possibly the only word to describe the experience of watching this 'film'. Essentially a stoner movie made up of the kind of sketches Saturday Night Live might throwout for being too directed at college students, I have to confess that I laughed til I cried watching it. The problem is at no point did I laugh 'with' the film.
There is a small amount of mirth to be had from the ridiculously dumb narration over stock nature footage. "It is estimated that bears kill over 2 million salmon a year, attacks by salmon on bears, are much more rare," being the best example. But most 'Jokes' go on way past their sell by date, including a 'dick joke' that would make a seven year old groan. Add into this people vomiting into a sharks mouth, a turkey (literally) gobbling down a cock and enough bong related humour to make Cheech and Chong blush and you have a contender for one of the most random films since the Python boys hung up their fluffy rabbits feet. Shame it didn't have any of their wit.
