I saw this film at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan. It was an entertaining film, adapted from a hit play. I expected it to be just comedy, but it's more than that. I don't really like comparing it to other films, but I guess you could call it a City Slickers in the forest.
Directed by William Gereghy, it's about four guys that go on a fishing trip at a cabin in the woods, basically just a weekend with the guys. But unfortunately they get lost and soon enough bad goes to worse. Throughout the film they buddies do a lot of talking around the campfire at night, sometimes really funny, sometimes insightful, maybe getting lost was for the best.
I enjoyed the film, again, I wasn't expecting a film about a bunch of guys trying to find out what they're doing in their life, but it works. And since it was based from a play, I guess you can expect a dialogue driven film. The four leads do a great job, I like that each character has their own personality and charm. If a DVD is in the future I'd like to hear a commentary by the four leads, it would be fun to hear some of their stories.
