Goofs

When the Dad crashes his big rig truck, the shot inside the cab reveals a woman to his right with a lit cigarette in her hand. She grabs him on the right shoulder and then he swerves to the left. Don't know if she is giving him a cue to swerve or she is the "hidden" girlfriend. We never see her again though! See more »

RECIPE FOR A BAD MOVIE...
21 December 1998 | by Kyle WestphalSee all my reviews

How do you made a bad movie? Well, take three teen hunks who can't act, add a screenplay that doesn't really have a plot (one moment you're filming wildlife, the next you're on a "nude beach") complete with an ending that's twenty minutes too late, stir in REALLY lame visual effects and you've got "Wild America", one of 1997's worst movies.
