Our Score
From Cheech and Chong going up in smoke to Harold and Kumar getting the munchies, stoner comedies are nothing new. This inane addition to the genre stars Steve Zahn as the host of Strange Wilderness, a cable-TV nature show that's about to be axed unless the permanently stoned layabouts behind it can pull off something sensational... like finding Bigfoot. Cue a skittish collection of gags involving bongs, laughing gas and bad Spanish as Zahn and his crew head off to Central America in search of the hairy beast. Among the players demeaning themselves are Jonah Hill from Superbad and veteran actors Joe Don Baker and Ernest Borgnine (both of whom are old enough to know better). The dearth of laughs is punctured only twice: Robert Patrick's mutilated Vietnam veteran showing off his damaged testicles and Zahn's equally unmanning encounter with a turkey. It's dopey in every sense.


A pot-smoking slacker inherits his late father's wildlife TV show - but finds it is on the brink of cancellation. Needing to do something spectacular to keep the series on the air, the new presenter leads an expedition to prove the existence of Bigfoot. Comedy, starring Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Jonah Hill and Ashley Scott.
