Strange Wilderness (2008) R - 2½ Stars

This movie has gone beyond trying to be humorous, and just turned out plain old silly. No, I haven't seen a turkey stuck to a penis before and unsticking it gave me a chuckle. Also when they meet Big Foot, their reception for him inspired yet another chuckle but all in all, I found it pretty damn stupid.

Peter Gaulke's (Steve Zahn) dad had one of the most popular wild life T.V. shows of it's time. After his death, Peter has taken over the show running it straight into the ground. It's not because of his undying will to carry on his father legacy, but more the lack of knowledge, common sense and just pure stupidity.

When Peter and Fred Wold (Allen Covert) his partner, are told the show is about to be canceled, they are desperate to find something gigantic to get ratings and save the series. Their failed attempt at photographing Sea Lions puts one of their own in the hospital. Broke and out of ideas, Peter gets word of a map that contains directions to a sighting of Big Foot.

The crew get the old RV in order, hire a few new recruits and set off in search of Big Foot. Their adventures take them to the Andes and the jungles where the team encounters, a thieving guide, man eating alligators, a tribe of hostel Pygmys and eventually Big Foot himself. Now if the crew can manage to get some good footage, they can give their show the boast to the top it's in desperate need of.
