They decide to continue his journey, but do not understand the dangers they will soon encounter. Written by Film_Fan

Goofs

When Del is shooting at Dennis and Elwood, sparks from the ricochets are seen on the fenders. This isn't possible because the fenders, like most of the ATV's panels, are made of plastic. Also, even if they weren't, bullets are made of lead, which won't cause sparks even against metal objects. See more »

Absolutely hilarious!

Okay folks, now, I am not the type of guy that enjoys toilet humour in films, but this one I am a sucker for. This is just a hilarious movie! I guess it just reminds me a lot of the times that friends and I used to go camping.

The story is about 3 childhood friends, who are brought together after the untimely death of another childhood friend. Going back to the treehouse that they used to hang out at, they find a treasure map from their dead friend, and decide to go on the trip to find the money. Along the way, they encounter everything from a bear, tree-hugging hotties, and a couple of pot growing rednecks.

This film has some of the funniest scenes that I have seen in a long time. Again, a lot of it is toilet humour, and people looking for a serious comedy, may not get the humour and walk away in disgust. The scene with the paper bags had me rolling on the floor. One of the funniest scenes in a long time. Plus, there are a lot of Star Wars references in this film, and that is always a plus from me! Check out this film, you will be pleasantly surprised! I guess I have not lost all hope in newer comedies as previously thought.
