By Erika Borsos VINE VOICE on 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.

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.

Absolutely a movie to see again and again!! the escapades of two great friends that just want some vacation time to enjoy life! How two friends can find amazing situations to deal with, that simply was meant to be a restful get away, and get into situations that only could happen to them! So funny, and unbelievable just how they GET into these things. We have watched it several times and enjoy it as we did the first time!! you got to watch this movie, you just GOT to!!!!

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!

This movie is silly & makes you forget the world's problems for a while. It's not deep & introspective - but pratfalls are like that!
The friendship between two men since childhood and how they support each other without sexual overtones is refreshing.
I gave it 4 stars due to the fact there were no English subtitles. No bad language.

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie, it was funny and the actors did a great job,
Of course, the story and all what happened in the movie was not close to the reality, but it was funny,
No bad language so I think it can be view with kids maybe 10+,

Wow! It's Danny Glover and Joe Pesci all on one screen at once. On their fishing trip several hilarious mishaps come their way, but in the end, they end up having a good time after all. The Willie Nelson song in this film is catchy as well as the music in the credits scene. If you are a fan of both Danny Glover and Joe Pesci, buy this film even if you don't fish!
