Storyline

Big-shot executive Robert Stiles' car is damaged when parked at the lodge. Stiles takes Red Green and the other lodge members to court, forcing them to come up with $10,000 in damages in ten days - or else lose their beloved Possum Lodge. Red and the boys embark on a road trip across the country, en route to a Duct Tape Festival in the USA, where they intend to win first prize by creating a sculpture made of at least 50% duct tape. Unfortunately, Stiles has bought off a crooked sheriff who intends to make the trip very difficult for Red... Written by Anonymous

Good supplement to the TV show
16 May 2011 | by (Massatoochetts) – See all my reviews

I enjoy watching The Red Green Show, and when I found out the cast made a movie, I was curious to see how it held up. Movies adapted from 5-minute sketch comedies have a reputation for spreading their routine too thin. Red Green benefits in having a large ensemble to draw on, and the antics of the other famed Possum Lakers break up the plot at intervals.

The gist of the story is that a land developer is demanding compensation for his limo that fell into a sinkhole outside the lodge. While the gang finds it fishy that a limo would be driving anywhere within 10 miles of the lodge, Harold comes up with a plan to enter a duct tape sculpture contest with a third-place prize large enough to pay their obligation.

It's a goofy movie, and while occasionally the actors still seem to have their TV-hamminess stuck on, the film is broken up to give different members of the cast a spotlight - highlights including scenes with Mike, Edgar, and Ranger Gord. While it does deviate a little from the show for some dramatic tension, it does so with Red's wry commentary and never feels terribly forced or out of place.

If you're a fan of the show, approach this as more of an extended outing with the gang than something that's really theatrical in scope. There's a little more budget (but not much), a little more story (again), but it's an enjoyable break from the norm of the series overall.
