[after drinking some of Albert Soady's sweet sap whiskey]
Little heavy on the sap.
A little what?
On the sap, it's a little heavy on the sap.
The saps what makes it.
Yeah, well that may be, but if I didn't know better I'd say I just drunk from a bottle of maple syrup.
Gimme the damn jar back!
[gets up from chair]
A man who can't look another man in the hairy eyeball and tell him he's heavy on the sap ain't much of a man.

I Watched, Laughed, Farted and Then had the Urge to Hunt!
I saw Escanaba in The Moonlight when it first came out. MY wife and kids and myself laughed until we had tears in our eyes. We thought it was funny. Especially the fart jokes. Sorry ladies, but I am a hunter and have been in more than a few deer camps to know what actually goes on. They play cards, fart, drink, tell jokes, read Playboy Magazines in the john and tell all kinds of stories. Most of the ladies would think this is gross obnoxious behavior. Then again, us guys aren't like they are in those stupid "I'm a Victim too" chick flicks, which us guys find obnoxious and odious because of how men are portrayed in them. As a comedy about hunting, the performances and some of the things in the story are exaggerated. But, isn't most humor? Jimmer steals the show with his talking, drinking and of course major flatulence. Harve Presnell is very good as well. THis is a must for all fans of comedies and hunting. I can relate to Jeff Daniels' character in a way, because the only deer that I managed to bag other than a spike horn some years ago were does, until a couple of years ago. I hadn't even seen a buck out in the woods until then. While, I loved the movie, that isn't to say that it couldn't have been better. I wish, they would have used the Da Yoopers music in the sound track, not played up the ufo and mystical aspect so much and maybe had more hunting related humor and dialog in it. Could it have been better. Sure. But as it is, it's still a pretty damned good movie! FOUR BULLSEYES OUT OF FOUR BULLSEYES on this one.
