Storyline

A humorous and relatable story of an intelligent man dealing with the frustration of being a "buckless Uper" at deer camp. He deals with his competitive brother, his challenging father and two other comical guys. Men will easily relate to the angst. Women will have fun as long as they're willing to avoid trying to find a deep plot line the first time they watch.

Cool as ****
6 September 2003 | by WienerbroedSee all my reviews

I've never hunted, never been to deer camp, never been to da UP and only been to the US once (Michigan, visiting in Detroit.) However, seeing this movie set me off to laugh extremely hard for days on end. Now our toilet is named the one-holer, and "my Chevy took a s***" still sends me laughing. Jimmer RULES! "this whiskey tastes like syrup" :D

I'm living proof that one doesn't have to be from MI to love this movie. It will definitely be in my video collection soon !!!
