Zach and Ben have been best buddies since they were in grade school. They were those "two guys" that we all know, opposites, but still the same kid. Their friendship continued through High School. Zach continually got them in trouble due to his carefree existence, and Ben was oblivious to everything as he became smitten by the girl of his dreams. Just as Ben got the nerve to pursue her, she moved out of the neighborhood, leaving Ben devastated for many years to come. Twelve years later, Ben & Zach, now in their mid-20's, still close friends, but have drifted apart due to making different choices in life. Ben is overworked and doesn't spend time doing the things he loves. He buries himself day and night in his work at a law firm. The only thing outside of work Ben has focused on is his life-long crush on the girl he met years ago in high school. Zach, an easy-going guy who enjoys everything he does, happily spends his days taking care of the elderly at a nursing home. Zach's only ... Written by Paramount Home Entertainment

An Okay Spin-Off!
8 March 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A spin-off to the immensely enjoyable Without a Paddle, 'Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling' is a harmless film, although in totality, its strictly an okay fare.

'Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling' Synopsis: Two best friends, along with a crazy Briton, embark on a journey in the woods to find a missing childhood crush.

'Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling' is best enjoyed if you willing to watch a film, where silliness plays a major aspect. I mean, its all harmless & in good nature, but its never smart or remotely engrossing. But, I wasn't bored & that pretty much did it for me.

The Screenplay is funny, but only in selected parts. The Direction is fair. Cinematography has captured the wilderness, very nicely. Editing needed more sharpness. And even though all the actors on board try to deliver, they never match above the given material.

On the whole, 'Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling' is just about passable. Keep a check on your expectations & you won't really complain.
