"Down in the Ever-Glades"!
15 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is just a great film. Why on earth are people rating it so low and calling it bad? It's not a bad movie, its one of the best movies I've ever seen!! Joe Pesci and Danny Glover together on a fishing trip? Comedy awesomeness right there! I think the people that hated the awesome innocent family movies like this are just stupid. They go for the action shooter thriller WHATEVER movies, and thats cool but its not cool to hate on a film that is great just because of that. I have great taste in movies, so I know what I'm talking about. I like the modern movies, and know that most of the cutesy fun-filled family movies (that, not to mention, have music written specifically for them) are back in the 70s and 80s. I'm drawn to those types of movies the same as modern thrillers, if not more than. "Gone Fishin'" is a 1997 movie, and proof that the modern era still makes those fun filled great family films. PESCI AND GLOVER 4 LIFE!!

Buy this film, and have fun Fishin'!
