Everybody needs to seriously take the chance to re watch this great movie. I would assume that 90% of those who watched this movie didn't get it, or thought it was really stupid. You must understand that this is a movie comprised of upper Michigan culture, and you really must be familiar with the area and it's culture to fully understand what it is trying to get across. Those who are not from the U.P. have absolutely no idea what this movie is about. Please, if you are going to watch this movie, consider it's roots before you judge it. I hope everyone gets the chance to make it to the upper part of Michigan someday and stay at one of the great cities in the area. The culture is amazing, and it really is something you cannot get anywhere else. Thanks.
