Editorial Reviews

Animal enthusiast Peter Gaulke (Steve Zahn) and his sidekick Fred Wolf (Allen Covert) host an ailing wildlife TV show "Strange Wilderness," which is in a steep ratings decline. Desperate to save the show, Peter hatches a Hail Mary scheme to find the one animal that could truly turn the show around and change the nature-show landscape forever – Bigfoot.

3.0 out of 5 stars inspired silliness August 21, 2008
Format:DVD
***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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER! December 4, 2012
By JMB
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious October 24, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie March 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Justin Long is the best part of the movie. He steals the show with the stoner role of the last five years. Not as good as Grandmas Boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic stoner comedy March 9, 2011
By mconser
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars had it's moments September 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie had it's funny moments but it definitely not as funny as I would have liked. The boyfriend enjoys it much more than I do. I would say this is more for a male audience.
