Red bears love fish....
on 19 August 2014
When his father dies, Peter inherits "Strange Wilderness," his dad's TV show about animals.
After a huge ratings drop, the studio head gives the show two more weeks before he cancels it.
An old friend brings a story about Bigfoot, so a long road trip is in order as Peter's team faces competition from a better-funded and more confident set of rivals.
Who will find Bigfoot first, and will they get it on tape and save the show....
Its a Happy Madison production, so if you know a lot about movies, you should know if that would have you steer clear, or just go with it.
I'm okay with the fact that Sandler makes movies that many people just hate, but I for one, do not feel guilty in the fact that I like watching them, because there is nothing serious about them, and they are short, and very, very stupid, just the way I want my escapism movies.
This has to be one of the most absurd ones the company has produced yet, and if it wasn't for such a great cast, it's bordering on slightly dull.
Zahn has great screen presence, and his performance adds a little class to the proceedings. But then the support is great too, and this is where the film excels.
Long is brilliant as the stereotypical stoner, and the funniest set pieces revolve around him, especially the scene where he is questioning a man about his name.
It loses its way a little in the middle, the final act, featuring a feature on sharks, is so stupid, you cannot help but to laugh.
Its one of the more weaker films from Happy Madison, but I still got something out of it.
