JS Pictures Corp presents a Jared Show film starring Curt Wootton, Joanie Dodds, Nate Magill & Jared Show. Bigfoot The Movie is not a documentary or like Harry and the Hendersons. If you enjoy the movies: Tremors, Shawn of the Dead, and Tucker and Dale VS Evil then your gonna love this! Bigfoot has come to the town of Ellwood City, PA and is causing BIG problems. Now it's up to four town locals, Chuck (Curt Wootton), Dale (Nathan Magill), Burl (Jared Show) and Kate (Joanie Dodds) to take him down. In this comedy/horror flick mullets, guns and beer are in full supply as the movie skewers the Pittsburgh 'Yinzer' stereotype right alongside the Bigfoot myth. The movie features Pittsburgh's most famous and best loved celebrities like Curt Wootton (Pittsburgh Dad), Joanie Dodds (America's Next Top Model), Bill Crawford (WDVE) Jim Krenn (stand-up comic, formerly of the WDVE morning show), Aaron Klieber (stand-up comic), Terry Jones (stand-up comic), Brenna Lee Roth (Killer Biker Chicks), and...Written by
Bigfoot the movie is one of the best Bigfoot related films I've seen. (Which is saying a lot). Creator John R Hand took a tired formula and managed to an make entertaining film, largely due to the clever writing and subtle comedy style. The sound and visual quality was top notch, especially for an indie film and the score was perfectly selected for each scene. The characters were fun to watch and served as the film's greatest strength. Having a cast of unsophisticated red necks could have easily led to nothing more than a frenzy of tired clichés. However, Bigfoot: The Movie took the high ground and made the majority of jokes premise driven, elevating them above cheap gags. However, being a comedy about Bigfoot fighting rednecks the film was not entirely above cheap gags and toilet humor. These jokes were overall funny as well due to comedic timing and the fact that no single joke was drawn out longer than necessary. I mean, if I were face to face with Sasquatch, I'd probably need a few drinks to get through the ordeal as well. Anyone who lives or has lived around Western Pennsylvania will appreciate regional jokes and Pittsburgh slang present throughout the film, adding an extra layer of charm. The only noticeable flaw from this film is it's unfortunate habit of dragging in places, which occasionally slows down the otherwise steady pacing. This is particularly prevalent regarding the romance and drama between characters. These moments don't seem to added much to the plot, nor do they develop the characters in any meaningful way. However, these moments are few and far between concerning the film as a whole. It would be wrong not to credit this film for using a Bigfoot costume that actually didn't look like a cheap planet of the apes knock off. Overall, Bigfoot the movie is clever comedy that's guaranteed to satisfy both long time Bigfoot fans, as well as anyone looking for an excuse to drink.
