The characters are poorly developed. Leonard, whose mother coddles him, is not utilized. Kent's attraction for the older women could have been made more for an adult audience, as long as the film is going that way. What was with the naked girl on the motorcycle? The opening scene was idiotic as scout masters take on the responsibility of informing a child his father has died.
Are there funny scenes? Yes. In spite of all the crudeness, there were scenes which made me laugh, but too few to put up with a poorly written production. At one point I thought they were going to mimic "Lord of the Flies," but that fell flat. I think a LOTF spoof would have worked better i.e. make Leonard a fat kid they call "Piggy" etc.
Watch at you own risk.

Seemed a bit too focused on off-putting shock value over telling an actual story. Most all of the kids were pretty atrocious actors, and by no means anyone's best work - be it Patton Oswalt, Knoxville, or Rob Riggle... Although Riggle was definitely the best of the bunch. One scene in particular where he talks crap to the guy in the yellow shirt was pretty hilarious.
I mean.. it's free and on demand, and I've seen plenty of worse movies from the service. Don't go in expecting much and you'll be rewarding with 10 or so pleasant minutes out of its 104 total minutes.
Not just bad, horribly horribly bad.
The kids clearly had fun making this film. But the plot was lame and predictable - as were most of the adult actors.
Patton Oswalt is actually pretty good. It's fun seeing him start to find his place as an actor. That's my single nice thought about Nature Calls.

Very funny, however one of the main themes running through it was the wife should stay in the kitchen and cook and clean while keeping her mouth shut. Read morePublished on January 11, 2014 by Readfreak
Slam to the scout program. The "mentors" could have least been characterized as what they were supposed to be representing.Published on January 8, 2014 by happy
