After the credits finish, there's a scene with Red and Harold in the van. Red says that saving the lodge will make the world a better place and Harold asks if he really believes that. Then the director yells cut. See more »
More often than not..... Excuse me, MUCH more often than not, a TV show that has been turned into a movie is a complete failure, Red Green had an even larger challenge because the show had so many daily segments that couldn't be thrown into the movie (e.g. Handyman's corner) however he uses his genius to throw in the same concepts into the movie. It was pretty nice on plot and hilarious. Been a while since I laughed that hard at a movie.
The one thing this movie fails to do at no fault of its own or anybody elses is appeal as greatly to the non-watching audience (of the TV series), and had it tried to be more sucessful in that aspect the entire movie would have failed in every way. Sure there was some lost potential revenue, however the Red Green fans should have loved it.
If you watch the show, you cannot hate this movie. Many TV shows that become movies SUCK, sometimes this ruins the show too cough...cough...Power Rangers...Cough... Excuse me there. LMAO.
It was good because Red Green stayed in character for the movie and didn't make a new personality for the movie. Same goes for the rest of Possum Lodge.
