5.0 out of 5 stars Nonstop Laughter! One Amusing Disaster after Another! October 17, 2005
Format:DVD
The film starts out in New Jersey when Joe and Gus are around ages 10 - 12 years fishing on the shore. They are talking about life, their plans for the future. Joe is smoking a cigar. Gus warns him it is not healthy. Joe flicks the cigar back, it lands in a long pipe, which starts a fire that leads to some factory. In the background, the lights of a nearby city go out one after the other. In the next scene, Joe's photo makes front page news, he is credited with having caused a "blackout" in at least 1/3 of the city.

Next scene, Joe and Gus are adults, still best friends ... they live next door to each other, in almost identical houses. They have a family and are planning a "fishing trip of a lifetime" in the Florida Everglades. They drive down to Florida with their fishing boat behind them. They make a stop at a Florida cracker style restaurant and discuss their plans. A sophisticated British man, who it turns out is a con artist, overhears them. He plays them for suckers, while asking questions about fishing lures and flatters them for their knowledge and skills. After saying good-bye, he lifts the keys to their car and drives off. Joe and Gus look out the window and comment ... about someone having the same kind of car and fishing boat ... when it dawns on them what happened.

The hilarity continues ... somehow they manage to save their fishing boat and rationalize they are lucky, things could always be worse, at least they have their boat. The guys meet a wealthy fisherman who mentions a yacht club in Florida where he plans to go fishing, he invites them to visit. They are picked up by two young women, whom they believe are impressed with their looks and male attributes ... but who quiz them about the con artist.

3.0 out of 5 stars A sleeper of a slapstick family entertainment comedy. November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This video received little notice in major reviews but provides great family entertainment. A sleeper of a movie, it deserves better acclaim, and features great acting and comedy situations that keep going throughout the feature. Although some parts can be dull (Willie Nelson has a bit part that could be spiced up a degree), the overall film was very enjoyable and should appeal to the broader audience. Rated PG. Will be great when released on DVD.

Mill Creek Entertainment has done it again, this time they have put out a stellar blu-ray edition of the buddy comedy "Gone Fishin'".
It's great to see the Lethal Weapon actors Joe Pesci and Danny Glover having such a great time together.
Country music legend Willie Nelson also appears in the film.
The PQ is great, and it's finally anamorphic, as the old Buena Vista dvd was not.
The AQ is nice too, to top it off the film's theatrical trailer is included.
Keep up the great job Mill Creek Entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious movie with two great actors. February 27, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this DVD. It is one of the funniest, pure slapstick, movies I've ever seen. Joe Pesci and Danny Glover are at their best in this remarkable tale of travesty and luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars this one's a ten....ten plus...Borderline 'leven!!!! August 22, 2004
By mike
Format:VHS Tape
oh come on, don't listen to the people who badmouthed this one...it's perhaps the dumbest funny movie of all time but that's okay because it works! If you appreciate shamelessly dumb humor, you ought to be purchasing this one right now. My good friend and I have adopted "borderline eleven" thing, whenever something exciting or good happens. We jokingly use a lot of quotes from this movie actually. I would recommend this as a stoner movie as well. Some of the things main character Gus and Joe do and say and ABSURDLY stupid, and remember absurdity is a key ingredient to humor. Take the first scene, for example...I would say one of the funniest opening scenes I've ever seen. "Rolled on the thighs of cuban honeys".

3.0 out of 5 stars Gone Fishin' November 23, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
You'll either hate it or love it. Great cast of stars including a cameo by Willie Nelson (representing the would-be spirit of all fly fishermen). The Dumb and dumber movie of the fly-fishing world. VERY funny and a good family flick. Some reused stunts but a lot of creative ones too. A real good spoof on those that would rather fish than anything else. Don't pay attention to those negative reviews - check it out for yourself. A sleeper of a comedy. Waiting for the DVD version with cut scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A CLASSIC!!!
I rate this comedy tied for 1st place of ALL I have seen in over 40yrs! The acting (of ALL) was so outstanding that I believe they got caught up emotionally with the script.
