Editorial Reviews

After the genial, beloved TV host of the popular wildlife show "Strange Wilderness" passes on to the great nature special in the sky, his son Peter Gaulke takes over the series - and things are never the same. Ignorant, bumbling and blissfully unaware of his own lack of talent, Pete sprinkles his documentary narrations with dubious factoids. When the ratings sink to an all-time low and the show is about to be cancelled, Pete and his filmmaking partner Fred Wolf realize they have to come up with "something big" to save the series. It looks like they've hit the jackpot when Pete lucks into a map of the legendary Bigfoot's secret cave. But when the clueless producer leads his ragtag crew to the wilds of Central America to film the elusive beast, they encounter a string of disasters. Desperate for a stunt to drive "Strange Wilderness" ratings back up and salvage the show, Pete brainstorms with his motley crew. Their luck seems to take a turn for the better when Pete gets a visit from his father's backwoods survivalist friend Bill Calhoun, who offers to sell him a map to Bigfoot's jungle hideout. Convinced this is the big break they've been waiting for, Pete and Fred hire two new crewmembers, Bill Whitaker and Cheryl, and set off for Ecuador in their dilapidated RV. From the start, however, the ambitious expedition is beset with disasters. Along the way, the hapless crew will have to survive near-death encounters with overzealous border guards, an amorous turkey, flesh-eating fish, murderous natives and a host of other obstacles that more than live up to the name "Strange Wilderness.]Struggling nature show tries to salvage their ratings.]0]]Fred Wolf]]]Steve Zahn]Allen Covert]Justin Long]Jonah Hill]Jeff Garlin]Kevin Heffernan]Ashley Scott]Robert Patrick]Alison Kay]

This is the all time funniest movie I have ever seen, hands down, bar none, the funniest. I have never laughed so hard or so much during a movie. I don't own many DVDs of movies. I own this one. If you live in a place where it's legal to do so, medicate yourself and your friends and watch this... you don't have to medicate, but it is a stoner movie, so it just adds that little bit of spice to it.... that's not why it's funny though. It is ridiculously funny because of the dialog and situations, the characters... the whole thing is just A++.
If you are a tight a$$ boring old coot, this movie isn't for you... if you like Adam Sandler movies, WATCH THIS!!! Five Frikkin Stars!!

***1/2

"Strange Wilderness" is a good-natured, frequently hilarious takeoff on all those nature documentaries that play on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, and whose pedigree stretches all the way back to the granddaddy of them all, "Mutual of Omaha`s Wild Kingdom." Peter and Fred are the producers of a wildlife series entitled "Strange Wilderness" that has been foundering in the ratings ever since Peter's father, a Steve Irwin-type naturist and the original host of the show, passed away, leaving his less-than-stellar son to carry on his legacy. The sheer scientific illiteracy of much of the commentary that Peter provides for his footage probably hasn't helped matters much in this regard. Now faced with the prospect of series cancellation, Peter and his crew of incompetent dweebs head off to the wilds of South America to file an exclusive report on the famed Bigfoot who has recently been spotted there.

Though adolescent in the extreme, "Strange Wilderness" turns out to be a zany, endearingly random and unflaggingly energetic little comedy whose likable cast is obviously dialed into what the moviemakers are trying to do here. Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Covert, Ernest Borgnine, Jeff Garlin, Kevin Heffernan, Justin Long and Harry Hamlin seem to be having the time of their lives here and their enjoyment rubs off on us as well.

Is it dumb? Of course it is. Is it lowbrow, inane and hopelessly juvenile? You betcha'. But unlike so many other films that fall into those categories, "Strange Wilderness" has a shrewd mind for parody and a liveliness of spirit that actually make the movie funny.

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I really can't get enough of this film. It's pure comedy, with a great soundtrack, hilarious actors, and great filming locations. It's got way too many instant-classic lines to even go into here.

STRANGE WILDERNESS

This film is not for everyone from the R rating to the overall zaniness of the flick, it is out there. Happy Madison is one of my favorite production companies especially when they are films for Sandler’s friends. The Kevin James, David Spades and all his homies flicks are always more fun which is all they are meant to be. This one features many of his friends and well known comedians.

The movie is about a group of friends who all work on a nature documentary show called “Strange Wilderness”. But the ratings have been on the decline for a very long time. So after getting offered the chance to purchase a map that shows how to find Bigfoot the jump on the chance to film the mythical creature. So they are off to South America to meet the man, get the map, and find and shoot [hehe] Bigfoot for the show.

This is a crazy movie full of randomness and various hilarious moments and wonderful quotes to take from the flick. One in particular is said by Justin Long [wonderful in this flick] when he sees a snake up in a tree, hilarious moment. Speaking of Long he has become one of my favorite actors and it started here then he was a show stealer in “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” and he was wonderful in Kevin Smith’s latest, “Tusk”.

The rest of the cast is amazing as well from Steve Zahn to Kevin Heffernan to Allen Covert and even Jonah Hill’s wacky character. Like I said it may not be for everybody because it is a hard R but it is fun for those who enjoy these crazy Happy Madison productions. Written by Peter Gauike [Black Knight, Ice Age: The Meltdown, The Babymakers] and director Fred Wolf [The House Bunny, Joe Dirt 1 & 2, Without a Paddle, Black Sheep, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Dirty Work, Grown Ups 1 & 2] “Strange Wilderness turns out to be a very fun flick thanks to these two and the great cast. The DVD comes with various behind the scenes features.

Yes, the comedy in this movie is low brow. However, it is the kind of low brow humor that is overlooked because it is so freakin hilarious. #1 on my "funniest movies of all time" list.

Very possibly the funniest movie ever made, hilarious laugh out loud moments throughout right until the very end. My only advice: definitely smoke a bone prior to watching. Kick it up a notch.
