What you don't know..
6 January 2005 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

It is not fair for someone from Oregon to trash Jeff Daniels for making Escanaba. I think that it does help to be from the Great Lakes State to truly enjoy this movie, but still, just because you do not understand something, is no reason to trash it. As a Michigander and an huge Jeff Daniels fan, I LOVED this film. It was not only funny, but in a lot of ways true to form. If you have ever spend a night in the woods of Michigan, or have ever been to Deer Camp, you would understand. And, as another point of interest, Jeff Daniels shot The Crossing about 4 years after he shot Dumb and Dumber. So, obviously, Dumb and Dumber was not his downfall. And yes, he was great in The Crossing. Also, if you are ever in Michigan, I recommend you stop by his theatre in Chelsea, MI. The Purple Rose. You are guaranteed a laugh.
