Storyline

Two lovable West Virginian hillbillies are headed to their "fixer-upper" vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin', and have a good time. But when they run into a group of preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw-wielding killers, Tucker & Dale's vacation takes a bloody and hilarious turn for the worse. Written by Tucker

Trivia

Alan Tudyk came up with the idea to pour beer on his face to treat Tucker's bee stings. See more »

Goofs

Dale tells Chuck to check the safety when Chuck is pointing the police officer's gun at Dale and Tucker. Chuck is holding a revolver which does not have a manual safety lever. It is unlikely that Dale's helpful suggestion was actually a clever ploy to kill the young college kid. See more »

Quotes

Tucker: You know something, Dale? She's just human. Why don't you go over there and talk to her?
Dale: Talk to her? What? What in the world would I say?
Tucker: I don't know. Tell her that you got a vacation home, that'd probably impress her.
Dale: Are you out of your mind, Tucker? These are college girls. Okay? They grew up in vacation homes and guys like me fixing their toilets.
Tucker: You gotta have faith in yourself, man. Girls can smell fear. Now, come on. You are a good looking man. More or less, you got a damn good heart....

A Hidden Treasure
9 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw the trailer to this film online and it seemed like a funny - yet unsustainable premise. I went to see it with friends anyway and I can't remember laughing so hard at a film in years. This movie takes a promising premise and knocks it out of the park. The cast is superb in this send-up of the psycho in the woods genre and the writing and direction take what I feared was an unsustainable premise and they give it surprising energy and humor. This is not Scary Movie crap. This is inventive and fresh and it has a beautiful heart. Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk are the "Hillbillies" in this hilarious tale of prejudice and paranoia and they deliver performances that are grounded and authentic. Tucker and Dale never become plodding stereotypes of ignorant rednecks. They are portrayed with great wit and dignity and the actors never overreach or retreat into the safety and insecurity of broad camp. The cast trusts the writing and the director and it pays off. The script by Morgan Jurgenson and director Eli Craig is tight, smart and has a wonderful heart. These qualities are given life by an above average cast that includes the lovely Katrina Bowden from NBC's 30 Rock. An especially guilty pleasure is the character of Chad, brilliantly played by Jesse Moss who channels some alternate universe version of a sociopathic Tom Cruise as the lead frat-boy. Eli Craig really guided home a winner with this film. The movie sets a course at the beginning and you know where you're headed in the first five minutes-- but Craig's the captain of the ship and this journey is filled with surprises and wonderfully subtle moments that give the film a fun trajectory and a brisk pace. You breezily travel through a fantastic, hilarious and utterly sublime entertainment. Bravo!
