It revealed that he was hot on the trail of the $200,000 that went missing with airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper in 1971. They decide to continue his journey, but do not understand the dangers they will soon encounter. Written by
After the boys ride their canoe over the waterfall, Jerry and Dan ask Tom where he was a river guide. After he tells them where, he also says he was Employee of the Month. Which was also a lie. Dax Shepard goes on to play Vince, in the film Employee of the Month in 2006. See more »
Flower and Butterfly have hairy legs because they are "all natural", but when one of them hands Jerry the radio, their legs and armpits are shaved. See more »
Without a Paddle was a good movie if you're looking for nothing more than a laugh. Going to see this movie will pretty much guarantee a night well spent and a good time out. Although, this movie is pretty cheesy. The plot is cheesy. The laughs are cheesy. But, luckily it has some genuinely funny moments too to bring the movie through to its end. The acting is mediocre at best, but great acting isn't necessarily needed for a movie of this kind.
Nobody expected it to be an Oscar winner. Also, this movie doesn't need to get its laughs from raunchy moments and attempts at teenager humour like some other "road trip" movies. Overall, this movie is pretty good for its kind and would be a good date film or a good movie to see with friends.
