Product Description

If you thought the first trip was wilde, get ready for the craziest adventure yet! Everything that can go wrong does go wrong when two best friends (Oliver James & Kristopher Turner) and one zany Brit (Rik Young) venture out into the wilderness in search of a high school sweetheart. It's the wettest, wildest, and most squirrelphobic road trip since Lewis & Clark! On this trip, the stakes are higher, the river is wilder and the creatures are nuttier!

Amazon.com

An unusual quest reunites two best friends from high school and takes them deep into the Oregon woods, where they encounter whitewater rapids, nymph-like ecoterrorists, and crotch-biting animated squirrels. If you’ve heard of the first Without a Paddle, a modest comedy-adventure starring Seth Green, Matthew Lillard, and Dax Shepard, you may be surprised to learn it made enough money to inspire a sequel--but that’s the only explanation for the existence of Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling, which is sort of a reboot of the previous movie, but without any recognizable stars and even less of a script. Directed with the flair of a less-than-stellar sitcom, this sequel goes through the motions of adventure and romance, but the results are half-hearted at best. However, the boys are handsome--particularly Oliver James (What a Girl Wants, Raise Your Voice)--and the girls are pretty--particularly Madison Riley (who’s made brief but memorable appearances in movies like Miss March and Fired Up). Football all-star Jerry Rice has a cameo as a mountain man with a peculiar theory about global warming. There is a seven-minute featurette about the crotch-biting animated squirrels and some deleted scenes so brief they can't actually be called scenes. --Bret Fetzer

“Without a Paddle: Nature’s Calling” (2009) is a comedy/adventure about three old friends who venture into the Northwest wilderness to find a girl whom one of them fell in love with when they were kids. She’s now a hippie tree-hugger, but stands to inherit a fortune. Will they find her? Will they even get back alive?

This “sequel” was only made because the first movie, 2004’s “Without a Paddle,” was a minor hit at the box office, making three times its expense in the USA alone. As you can see from the above synopsis, “Nature’s Calling” is merely a retread of the same plot with slight variations and different actors. It also cost $12.7 million less.

If you liked the first film you might appreciate this one, but it’s anemic by comparison, not that the first one was that good. The protagonists are likable and the filmmaking is hip, including the soundtrack, but the shenanigans are only mildly amusing and the girls, again, aren’t anything to get too excited about, although the brunette is the best of both worlds. The over-the-top scene with the squirrels is easily the best scene and is almost worth the price of admission. I suggest only watching this one if you’re a fan of the first movie and want to see a lesser film with the same plot and tone.

An interesting difference is that this one was actually shot in the Great Northwest, in the wilderness East of Portland, rather than New Zealand.

The film runs 96 minutes.

I thought this movie was hilarious. I enjoyed the first movie but this has to been an OK sequel.... I guess I have to say that no other movies are as funny as Super bad! The acting was not horrible, & but the plot some excitement!

Not what I expected. Way too many silly previews, you can't understand what the actors are saying the majority of the time, a sub-plot that has no justification, really kink of a poor movie.

For some reason, when I bought this DVD, I thought I was buying the original, but apparently it is a redo or a sequel. I'm not sure. I never even opened it yet.

I compare with the last one, and it just wasn't as good as the first one. Sorry but that is just how it is.
