Storyline

When his father dies, Peter Gaulke inherits "Strange Wilderness," dad's TV show about animals. After ratings plummet and the show is canceled, we watch a long flashback to see its demise. The studio head gives the show two more weeks. An old friend brings a story about Bigfoot in Ecuador, so a long road trip ensues with stops along the way and enough problems, misjudgments, and deaths to sink a less intrepid band. Peter's team faces competition from a better-funded and more practiced set of rivals. Who will find Bigfoot first, and will they get it on tape and save the show? Can Peter make dad proud?

Quotes

[first lines]
Peter Gaulke: [talking on phone] Look at my dad. He was the king. I mean, no matter what happened, I mean he was as cool as a cucumber. He never forgot a line, and he never let anything ruffle him. My dad was the king. No doubt. And his TV show ruled the ratings.

Very Funny
13 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why people do not like this movie. This is a classic Adam Sandler esquire movie. I thought this movie would be OK but it far surpasses my expectations. My friend and I went to go see it for his birthday and both were very happy with the film. This movie contained many many funny moments. Jonah Hill's songs were funny and this was a laugh a minute film. While watching I thought they laughs might drop off but I was happily surprised and the laughs continued to the end of the film. It is a predictable ending to the movie but, it was still a great film and worth the $8.00 I paid. If you are a fan of the Happy Madison films you will also like this one.
