Without a Paddle

In Steven Brill's WITHOUT A PADDLE, three friends embark on a hilariously dangerous adventure through the woods of the Pacific Northwest. When their childhood friend Billy dies, 30-year-old buddies Dan (Seth Green), Tom (Dax Shepard), and Jerry (Matthew Lillard) return home to pay their respects. While there, they unearth a map that Billy left behind, which may or may not lead to a hidden treasure. Dan is a germ-phobic doctor who would rather spend his time anywhere but in the wilderness, but the recently dumped Jerry and down-on-his-luck Tom are intent on fulfilling their friend's lifelong dream; and so begins the trio's journey. It isn't long before things begin to spiral out of control. Starting with a gigantic bear that mistakes Dan for one of its own, the guys are also on the run from two pot-growing maniacs (Ethan Suplee, Abraham Benrubi) who are looking for revenge after their marijuana farm is burned to a crisp. Of course, what would a wilderness expedition be without raging rapids, a towering waterfall, beautiful (but hairy) hippy chicks, and an encounter with a menacing mountain man (Burt Reynolds). Brill's madcap adventure gleefully references DELIVERANCE and 1980s pop culture, and features spot-on performances from Green, Lillard, and Shepard. see more...

Without a Paddle
Has some nice moments, as when an actor who plays a writer on "30 Rock" assails the Dr. Seth Green character in a hospital parking lot, apparently for no reason. And some wilderness bits such as they showed in all of the trailers are also very good. Vastly better than the very similar "Rolling Kansas" (2003), in which they searched for a patch of magical marijuana instead of the lost treasure of D.B. Cooper. Light, silly, unchallenging fun for after a hard day at the office. ...I looked this up because it has Antony Starr, who has the thankless role of the friend who appears for a second and then dies--Starr is so good in the wonderful New Zealand series "Outrageous Fortune." ...Hey, I watched through to the end of the credits: THIS WAS FILMED IN BEAUTIFUL NEW ZEALAND!! WACKY!!
A movie that follows three friends getting together after the passing of a friend go on an adventure of epic proportions all while following the trail of their friends belief that in the Oregon wilderness D.B Cooper has left his cash. A story of reconnecting and utter chaos.
