From the guys that brought you Napoleon Dynamite comes this hilarious Napoleon-topping award-winning comedy. Super-nerdy Gavin Gore and his friends stumble on some huge footprints in the woods. A local cop, reporter and a renowned Sasquatch authority investigate, while two of Gavin's stoner neighbours hatch a scheme to profit from the situation.

Features an up and coming young cast including Jeremy Sumpter (Peter Pan) and Justin Long (Walk Hard, Die Hard 4.0)

You can imagine the events of this film occurring on the other side of town as the events of 'Napoleon Dynamite' take place. The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang shares the same atmosphere as that film, with the same peculiar 'out-of-time' feel with it's mixing of '80s and '90s imagery and props, the same odd pronunciation of the word 'idiot', great characterisation and lots of quotable dialogue.

Other reviews will give you a synopsis so I'll skip that, but this is a fun film. It probably won't become an instant hit but it has, like Napoleon Dynamite, all the hallmarks of becoming a cult classic.

It's not all great though. The acting is a little ropey in places and the jumping about in time of the script doesn't work very well, and there are some painfully cheesy moments which you sense were aiming for ironic but ended up falling somewhere between the two. For all that though it is an enjoyable film, and I really liked it a lot. If you like Napoleon Dynamite you'll probably love this too, but if that film passed you by you'll probably want to skip this one.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I ordered this expecting an American Pie style gross-out teen comedy so I was surprised to find it was a kids movie. I guess it's aimed at young teenagers. It reminds me of the films Steven Spielberg used to Present/Executive Produce in the mid-eighties like "The Goonies" (especially the moment the lead character rents his videos to the other kids, which is a character quirk straight out of "Gremlins" or "The Goonies").

I plodded through the opening ten minutes with the intention of giving up. Then the film does a Quentin Tarantino style fractured timeline thing were we get the same scene from a different perspective. It hooked me in and I watched the whole movie. The jumpy timeline is fairly pointless, but I assume the story would be pretty flat and dull without the kick it gets from rearranging scenes for comic effect.

Justin Long is an excellent comic actor (see "Accepted" for his best film in a lead role) and he delivers another funny performance as a loser metalhead who needs to make some money fast or he'll lose his car to his bank. The worst performance is by Carl Weathers as a Big Foot expert. He hams it up way too far and just seems out of place with his terrible acting.

The film has a few good laughs and it was painless to watch. I suspect it might be a bit too boring, talky and adult for preteens, and then a bit too innocent for teenagers.

The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang is a light-hearted teen comedy that promises more than it actually delivers. The film is cut into 7-8 sections that interlink a-la Pulp Fiction to give a simple explanation to what is a fairly simple story. Whilst this is an interesting take on the comedy genre I felt that it wasn't exploited to it's fullest potential. The main group of geeky kids aren't that geeky and the group of local Bullies don't particularly Bully. The characters that do excel are the lead character's stoner neighbours who are given most of the best lines and shine in what is a rather slow-paced affair. The appearance of legendary Carl Weathers as a rather fraudulant Sasquatch 'expert' does little to raise the bar. The film does shine in some areas, and as a light-weight yarn abou the legendary Bigfoot could be worth a cautious look.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Young, fantasy/sci-fi obsessed Gavin Gore [Jeremy Sumpter] and his equally bright nerdy friends [Addie Land, Hubbel Palmer, Rob Pinkston] stumble onto some huge, Sasquatch sized, footprints in the woods. They naively assume that the footprints must be genuine. A local cop, a small town reporter and the renowned Sasquatch authority, Dr. Artemis Snodgrass, all arrive to investigate. Meanwhile two of Gavin's not-so-clever neighbours [Justin Long and Joey Kern] try to find ways to profit from the find, in a desperate attempt to save their beloved Pontiac Firebird from the repo man.

The original title of this film, The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang, is a homage to the title of the 1970s Disney film The Apple Dumpling Gang. Apparently Jeremy Sumpter receives an actual wedgie in this movie. The film's tagline is 'A tale of Nerds and T*rds', emphasising the films PG-13 rating for 'crude humour and language'. It's more 'Dude, Where's My Car?' style teen/young adult entertainment than 'Harry and the Hendersons' family fodder, but none the worst for that. Mature viewers may well find the young men's antics amusing as well.

Filmed relatively cheaply in six weeks, it made just $10,000 on the first day of release. Run time 1 hrs. 24 min. Justin Long has acted in many films such as Galaxy Quest [the nerdy teenager], Jeepers Creepers, Dreamland, Live free or die hard & Dodgeball, as well as voicing Alvin in Alvin & the Chipmunks. Filed under 'cult', I'd rate this Sasquatch Dumpling Gang as a solid 7 out of 10 for fans of the genre [Napoleon Dynamite, American pie, The 'urbs, Flight of the Conchords], with a slightly surreal black comedy twist. Watch the Amazon cinema trailer for more details. Sibling movie Napoleon Dynamite is also worth viewing, and is probably a tad better than this later movie.

Let me preface this by saying I didn't dig Napoleon Dynamite . . . However, this film is much better. There's a gentle edge to the humour which is maybe a little trite, but the characters are involving and the struggles purely comical. The excellent acting by the young leads makes up for any of those groan-out-loud silly moments.

The premise is thus: a bunch of kids think they find Sasquatch tracks (and a Sasquatch 'dumpling'). What unravels is a hilarious, non-linear expose of suburban American life and the colourful characters in this backward town where everyone is just a little bit obsessed with Bigfoot. The lead, who previously starred as Peter Pan, is warm and utterly charming, and his love interest is a strong, well-rounded tomboy who really comes into her own as the film progresses.

There are several twists and turns which keep you watching, but mostly we're here for the gags, and there are plenty of those too.

Especially if you like the humour of Napoleon Dynamite.
