Storyline

It's a Saturday, on a snowy Midwestern winter landscape, and Tony Norgard really wants to go ice fishing. But he is pressured to attend his mother-in-law's birthday party on the same day. To solve the dilemma, Tony feigns being ill and stays in bed. While his little white lie allows him the chance for a secret outing, it comes with a heavy price. Through the day, misfortune seems to meet him at every turn. When he meets up with his dad Frank, things get worse. Tony's lie seems to have put a curse on what should otherwise have been a simple day of fishing for everyone. Unaware of the charade, Tony's wife Lila happily goes about her day, sorry that her husband is at home, sick in bed, missing a great weekend of family fun. Tony befriends the spirited and very independent Stormy, a beautiful, yet rugged ice fisher woman. Stormy becomes one of the many unusual characters Tony meets in this frozen lake community of anglers. Through it all, even Tony is dwarfed by the magnitude of his ... Written by Richard Brauer

If you like Escanaba in the Moonlight
3 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have already seen this movie as it was filmed in my hometown of Houghton Lake. The movie starts with Tony faking his sickness so he can go ice fishing instead of to his mother in laws Birthday Party; This lie starts a snowball effect and tony;s day is about to get a lot more interesting.

Going into seeing this movie don't expect a blockbuster, it is an independent, low budget film. If you liked escanaba in the moonlight or like hunting, then you will definitely love this movie. It has a lot of humor that those 2 groups will understand.

So give it a chance, you might just actually see a movie you like, without having to depend on all the "hollywood Stars".
