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

Boring and lifeless
11 January 2009 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

While the first movie wasn't all that entertaining - it was passable, this doesn't come close to it what-so ever.

Dialoge is poor, setting is not to full effect, story is lame, casting is all wrong, nothing in this is memorable.

The squirrel sequence is just retarded and it's subplots are just as stupid.

I saw this free and was glad that I didn't pay for it.

It saved me the cost of a rental, but regardless is was still lifeless and bring.

Not even the two eco-chicks were from the first movie - which I guess is a good thing...

Who thought of this story as something to produce is severely looking to get fired.

Soundtrack didn't offer anything either.

If you liked the first Without A Paddle, you should leave it at that and forget about this one, because you will enjoy this.

Nothing really works in this. It's just a mess of sub-stories that were mishmash-ed together to put together a sub par script that is not funny or entertaining.

There is a reason that this went straight to video...because it would not have lasted 2 weeks in a theater.

It's poorly developed - even the sound nature effects are over done.

The continuity is atrociously horrible as is the timing and looping.

Save your money, save your time...go to sleep instead.
