Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
An unusual combination of comedy film and nature documentary, this family movie chronicles the true story of television show Wild America host Marty Stouffer and his two brothers, photographer Marshall and producer Mark. The boys' father (Jamey Sheridan) grooms his three sons to take over the family auto parts business, but the sons are more interested in adventure. Finally, their mother, Agnes (Frances Fisher), intercedes and convinces him to take the two oldest boys on a cross-country trip to film a nature documentary. The youngest son, Marshall (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), stows away in his brothers' van and joins them on their travels. The real-life Stouffer brothers served as advisers on this film.]]>

But, it is mad up for in the interesting plot. I don't know how much of this is true, but I enjoy it just the same.
More than often humorous and a few times absurd, "Wild America" runs on adrenaline, keeping the audience on their toes... since they never know what might happen next. From a gator-infested swamp to the snowy mountains of Montana, these boys never seem to run out of adventure. There are encounters with wolves, snakes, wild horses, eagles, bears, alligators, and other predators, all filmed in that beautiful close-up quality of the real-life Stouffer. Particularly memorable is the montage of Wild America clips shown during the end credits... some of his most best-known and award-winning work.
Yes, at times the film is corny and it tries too hard to be everything -- a comedy, a romance, an adventure, a family flick -- but it's enjoyable simply for its casting, storyline, and animals. Parents should be forewarned that it contains quite a helping of profanity. While the film won't appeal on a wide range to older teens, younger ones will probably be drawn in by the great adventure upon which the boys embark. Girls in particular will enjoy this one, if only for the pleasure of watching a nearly all-male cast. JTT is exceptional.
"Wild America" cites more on the side of irony than realism... but it's still quite a ride.
Overall this is a really fun movie, (and it is based on a true story.) Check it out!
