Storyline

Two lovable 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

Goofs

After Tucker has his fingers reattached in the hospital, his fingers are not bandaged. It is also alluded that a different finger than Tucker's might have been attached. Because this finger has a painted red nail and significantly less hair, it is meant to be a joke. Although this is unrealistic, the joke has been lost on some viewers. See more »

Quotes

Jason: You shouldn't be smoking anyway, Chloe. It's not good for you.
Chloe: Yeah, well, fucking dying isn't good for you either, but that doesn't seem to be stopping anybody!

Very funny, gory, with heart
27 May 2010 | by CostanzaDBSee all my reviews

Really entertaining twist on 'teens in the woods' horror flicks. Lots of laughs and buckets of blood. The actors playing Tucker and Dale are very compelling and believable. Their charm really makes the film and you care about their story.

The movie is basically a farce or a comedy of errors with each error resulting in a gruesome death. While the manner of the deaths is so over the top as to be funny, the biggest laughs come from the dialog. "Tucker and Dale vs Evil" excels at both physical comedy (the chainsaw scene for example) and verbal (explaining the situation to the police).

Great movie.

This film had a tremendous audience reaction at the Seattle International Film Festival. There's a laugh every minute.
