Wow, this was bad. We did watch it all the way through, but I'm not too sure why! We bought it because Stefaniuk's film Suck is so good, and hoped this would live up but...well stylistically kind of similar I suppose, but is just so all over the place as to be pretty much unwatchable. Best advice - skip it, and go straight for Suck.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED it! 23 Oct. 2010
By Gayle D'Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this movie. It's funny, quirky, interesting, engaging... I'm a huge fan of Monty Python, Mel Brooks, Trey Parker/Matt Stone films and this one is, to me, in that same vein. If you love intelligent, funny, interesting comedies, this is for you! If not, then you obviously don't have good taste in movies. Plus, from seeing this movie and "Suck," the guy (Rob Stefaniuk) is obviously a talented musician--in addition to being a talented writer and director--and anyone who appreciates good music (like Rush) is a great person in my book! I particularly loved the part when "Phil" is singing the blues in his "native" language, but we get it...the blues is the blues. You don't have to understand the words, it's the emotion being conveyed. When he comes off stage and one of the local "good 'ole boys says, "Damn, he's good!" you can relate! He's just a guy missing his home and singin' the blues! A great film with great laughs througout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kill Me 24 Jan. 2010
By M. Salyzyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A wonderfully campy view of Canadian, US and Alien relations. And what a wonderful premise; a born-again alcoholic fish-out-of-water alien with "cool powers" being chased by a motley crew of dysfunctional snipers. And nothing compares with a low budget sock puppet alien trapped in a glass cage, bashing head around swinging for a sweat escape, "kill me ... kill me now".

This movie starts slow, and has some uncomfortable silent moments that one must struggle through along with predictable story movement; legacies of a low budget in a time when everyone now expects blockbusters, immediate gratification, brilliant plots or breathtaking cgi. This movie has none of these modern trappings, but buried in every moment are subtleties and humor that make it watchable again and again. But beware, there is more craft in the words than there is in the plot.

If you are into cult movies, 'bad movie nights', having fun, or at least if you think a trapper replete with a bad attitude, fur hat and bad french accent is funny; this is a must-have in your collection! A jewel in the rough.
1.0 out of 5 stars Life is short, don't waste it. 1 Feb. 2016
By L. Beck - Published on Amazon.com

I have a peculiar trait of being able to salvage positivity from most things that could be seen as a sad waste of life's time.
I couldn't do anything about the time I spent watching this movie. It was a waste.

If you've never seen a movie in your life, then this might be OK for you. If you have movie-viewing experiences that would serve as contrast to this thing then you'd probably be better off avoiding it.

4.0 out of 5 stars funny romp through the wildes of Canada and nightlife with ... 25 July 2014
By crosscountryman - Published on Amazon.com
Holy samolians this is one crazy, funny romp through the wildes of Canada and nightlife with the usual hi-jinx of the zany Second City comedy of Joe Flaherty! A far out production of imagined possibilities presented by an Alien Invasion of the Great North Woods. If you like weirdness ~ this is the film for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars -There's A Talking Beaver- 22 Jun. 2012
By SickLittleBoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I picked this one up for $2.89 including shipping. It's a low-budget film but is really very good. I have watched this thing 3 times so far. "Shut Up Beaver," too funny. I have had zero problems with the disc and will probably watch this again with the wife this weekend. Pop some corn and enjoy!!
