4.0 out of 5 stars I'M THE SCARY GUY
Danny Bonaduce "stars" as a Haley Anderson, a radio DJ in Deadwood, SD near Mt. Rushmore. If someone had told me Danny Bonaduce was really working as a DJ in Deadwood SD, I would have believed him. His Partridge Family gig provides the humor for Barry Williams, formerly of "The Brady Bunch" for being his arch rival in this film.

I may be The Asylum's biggest fan, but even I cannot defend this film. Apparently believing that untold TV fans have spent years desperately longing for Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams to have a go at one another (and yet somehow missed their Celebrity Boxing match a few years back), The Asylum threw together a quick script, hired some of the worst special effects guys...

Danny Bonaduce "stars" as a Haley Anderson, a radio DJ in Deadwood, SD near Mt. Rushmore. If someone had told me Danny Bonaduce was really working as a DJ in Deadwood SD, I would have believed him. His Partridge Family gig provides the humor for Barry Williams, formerly of "The Brady Bunch" for being his arch rival in this film.

As man destroys the forest he encroaches on Big Foot's territory, who is about 50 feet tall. At times this production is "King Kong" spoof. Being near Mt. Rushmore, I think you know where this is going.

Bigfoot is aroused and discovering Allison Hayes is dead and 70's rock star Alice Cooper is alive and headlining an 80's rock festival causes him to go on a rampage. The movie has poor CG effects and should only be viewed in black and white, drinking your favorite adult beverage, and/or taking persecution meds in order to get the full 1950's SyFy feel. Lines such as "Peter Pan never killed anyone unless they deserved it" are meaningless sober even when spoken by Greg Brady.

POSSIBLE PLOT SPOILERS: There are some fun parts such as when Bigfoot scales Mt. Rushmore. Notice that in one moment he is up at Washington's eyes, and then the next moment he is climbing below his chin. Or the part when Bigfoot looks down and sees the pretty blond girl. He cocks his head back and forth like K.Kong eye balling Fay Wray, and then steps on her. Seriously. The film was a well made bad spoof.

Made for TV, no sex, f-bombs, or nudity.

This review is from: Bigfoot [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I may be The Asylum's biggest fan, but even I cannot defend this film. Apparently believing that untold TV fans have spent years desperately longing for Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams to have a go at one another (and yet somehow missed their Celebrity Boxing match a few years back), The Asylum threw together a quick script, hired some of the worst special effects guys in the business, and called it Bigfoot. The big guy doesn't have much going for him here (besides a nasty case of sudden-onset eczema on his head and a tendency to grow and shrink by tens of feet from one scene to another), but I will say this for Bigfoot. He's pissed off. This ain't your typical Bigfoot, hiding out in the wilderness and roaring or throwing rocks at any human who manages to get close to him. This Bigfoot is constantly out in the open, stomping people, ripping people in two, snapping the heads off of unfortunate human victims, taking out really stupid people in helicopters, you name it. If he weren't brought to digital life so amateurishly, he would be a total bad ass.

The setting is Deadwood, South Dakota. Local DJ Harley Anderson (Danny "Partridge" Bonaduce) will stop at nothing to make sure his 1980s Outdoor Music Festival will go on as planned. (Don't get too excited - the only 80s rocker you'll get to see here is Alice Cooper, and he doesn't even get to sing.) His biggest obstacles are a freak snowstorm and the constant protests of some tree-hugging neo-hippies led by Simon Quint (Barry "Greg Brady" Williams) - or so he thought until Bigfoot shows up. Apparently, Bigfoot really, really, really hate 80s music, thus proving himself to be more beast than man. Anyway, the rest of the movie consists of Anderson trying to kill the creature while Quint and his young minions attempt to save its life by capturing it alive. Of course, untold people die horrible deaths before everything comes to a head - Abraham Lincoln's head, to be exact, the one on Mount Rushmore.

Sadly, Bonaduce is actually the best actor involved in this project, which tells you all you need to know about the acting on display. Howard Hesseman turns up as Deadwood's mayor, thus proving that his career is pretty much over, and - in the "oh how they've fallen" category - a plump Sherilyn Fenn surfaces as the local sheriff. As for that big 80s music festival, the Woodstock comparisons don't exactly come to fruition, as no more than 50 people showed up. And those special effects - give me a green screen and a cheap camera, and I could probably do better.

Lest I forget, though, the film is somewhat educational. In addition to informing all of those real-life hunters out there that the best way to flush a Bigfoot out of his lair is to play 80s music, this film also alerts us to the fact that we should turn all of our lights off at night so as not to annoy any nearby Bigfoot. You'll also get a special appreciation for our military's Special Forces. Who knew it was so difficult to get a rifle fix - with a scope, no less - on a giant Bigfoot head twenty feet away? And, whatever you do, don't sneak up on a soldier with a gun, as he's liable to pump you full of bullets, even long after he's discovered you're actually a person and not a mythical, hairy beast.
