Yooper Born and Raised!
5 December 2003 | by (Wilson, Michigan) – See all my reviews

As a Yooper born and raised,(Born in Norway, MI, and raised in Escanaba, MI) I found this movie to be hilarious! For me, it was very easy to distinguish the inside jokes, as only us Yooper's might get. All of my life, hunting season has been a "state holiday". Kids get the day off of school for opening day. They have "Widow's Balls" everywhere I have been up here. The men take off for a week to deer camp, to do more drinking and "hangin with the guys" than actual hunting. Its a tradition, with the added bonus of "Baggin Da Buck!"

I watched this movie being made, met some of the cast, watched some of my lucky friends get picked as "extras". We knew that alot of ppl round the nation might not "get" the movie, but it made us proud! Every other state has something to set them apart from others, well, we finally got ours! The whole movie showed us that while others may think the things that we do ar e odd, to us, its a way of life. Let the hunt go on, and may other small towns get their 15 minutes "In Da Moonlight!"
