I dont think most people will understand alot of the jokes told in this movie if you are not familiar with hows things are in the U.P. Most people who are not from the area probably will not like this movie.
This movie has a nice blend of sophomoric humor with a nice lesson in family values. This movie shows the sacrifices a family will make for one member which was real nice to see, and it was done in a manner that was not corny, so it carried an impact.
Most people who do not like this movie should because it was too goofy should lighten up. They need to realize that the movie is intended to be sophomoric, but carry an underlying message that is noted above.
Overall, I say this movie is a 8 out of 10. If you are in the mood for a silly funny movie, go out an rent this movie. I am glad to see that they finally released this movie, so it should start to become available, at least in the Michigan area.
