Product Description

Joe Peterson is a burned-out children s book writer who s on the brink of a mid-life crisis. With his career at a standstill and his relationship in shambles, he leaves town with his best friend to do the Polar Bear Plunge in the dead of winter in Northern Wisconsin. On his quest for inspiration, Joe encounters a motley crew of misfits including an obsessed law enforcement professional, a hockey player, and a potential muse. The crew guides Joe to find his lost passion, survive an assault by an ex-girlfriend, and stay out of the way of the law. In the end, he gets the girl and will publish again but not before testing the icy waters of Lake Michigan on a snowy winter day.


classic fish-out-of-water comedy --Rob Thomas, The Capital Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute story, a must see for anyone who loves Door County February 22, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I wasn't able to see this in the theater so I'm thrilled that it's finally available!

I knew it took place in Door County but I had no idea what it was about. It turns out it's a cute and clever boy-meets-girl love story set in Ellison Bay, WI - the northern tip of Door County - in the middle of winter. Anyone who has spent time in Door County will simply enjoy seeing spots they recognize, like the Skyway Drive In and The Viking Grill. Since most people have only been there in the summer, it's also a fun peek at what it looks like in the winter. The credits are a blast to watch at the end, thanking just about every Door County business and winter resident. And yes, they really do have the Jacksonport Polar Bear Plunge every year.

What I didn't expect was the good story! Tony Shaloub nails the part of the Door County Sheriff, antagonizing the main characters throughout the movie. Anyone who loved him in Monk will enjoy seeing him play this quirky and funny character, who is quirky and funny in entirely different ways than his TV detective. The rest of the cast are unfamiliar to me but that made it more fun since I can really imagine them in this setting. The movie is a cute love story and it made me laugh. Taking place "up north", it is refreshingly not hollywood, and I think that is what sets it apart. You don't have to be a Door County fan to enjoy this movie - the story does support itself - but it's definitely an added bonus. You will just get a few more of the jokes, and giggle at some stuff (like when Joe "runs" from Ellison Bay to Jacksonport, which is like 20 miles). Overall, I think it's well done and I highly recommend it!

I guess this type of movie is my favorite genre - I like things like "Milwaukee, Minnesota" and "Local Hero." It's obviously reminiscent of "Northern Exposure," and Barry Corbin's presence underlines that. The other reviewers who said it's not so much a romantic comedy as a community comedy were absolutely correct. Like "Local Hero," it's about someone who finds himself in an authentic but quirky community that leads him to rethink his assumptions about life. No gross-outs, no violence (aside from a funny scene involving a shotgun blast to an outbuilding), and thankfully, no sex jokes, awful parents, nor (aside from the badger scene) any gross-outs of the type found in recent rom-coms. The existence of movies like this is enough to keep my hope alive that the motion picture is not a decadent form of entertainment. It really makes you wonder why they can spend millions and come up with dreck like "Hall Pass," and then blame downloaders for the woes of the industry. Actually, this is the kind of movie the Canadians have been making (with the government's support) for years. Kind of make you think about health care as a parallel...

The movie is funny in a low key way. Tony Shalhoub uses the same neurotically quirky kind of humor he displayed in his TV shows, and Barry Corbin more or less reprises "Northern Exposure's" Maurice in a reassuring way. The buddy character is similar to (though less annoying than) a Zack Galifianakis character, and the protagonist and the young girl are just nice people. The other characters, like the church choir ladies, are broadly drawn without being demeaning. Garrison Keillor wanted to capture this vibe in "Prairie Home Companion" but went too far because he used the other characters merely as foils for his own. Tony Shalhoub managed to avoid that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely the "Feel Good Comedy" of the year! December 29, 2010
By Jay W.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These days, anyone with a bit of the sensitivity that God gave a gopher must go to a "romantic comedy" with shoulders hunched, dreading the moment when the semi-fantasy mood this genere demands is evaporated by the first grossout scene that appears on the screen. Imagine the surprise (for this day and age) then, when Feed the Fish gives one scene after scene that continues the enthrallment and envelopment of the audience with clever and adult--yet gentle and "feel good"--humor too. Very few films achieve this kind of screen magic these days that create such a warm glow of happiness in one as the film regretfully ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT just for Wisconsinites November 8, 2010
I've seen Feed the Fish twice, at the premiere at the Meyer Theatre in Green Bay and again when it was played at the regular movie theatre. It was just as good the second time and I can't wait to get my copy. It's funny and can be enjoyed by everybody, not just Wisconsinites!!

You absolutely have to see this movie! It is awesome. Well acted, great story.

Not too heavy either this is a perfect movie to have around and is suitable to watch with the whole family.

A great bonus is the varied scenery and locations the movie was filmed in.

This is a real treat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow, but okay October 24, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The acting in this movie was good. Tony Shaloub was his brilliant self. However, the plot was predictable and unexciting, except for the badger's appearance.

And, there was a lot of license with the cold, which made the feel less than authentic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feed the Fish Video May 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful movie and one the whole family can enjoy. I haven't enjoyed a movie like this since Grumpy Old Men came out a long time ago. Just good hearted fun and also carries messages and a story line that will keep you interested until the end. This is a must have for your video library.
