Default 'Strange Wilderness' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'Strange Wilderness.' He says there are some laughs to be had, but this is not an Oscar contender. This Blu-ray offers an upgrade from the DVD, but video and audio are merely solid, not stellar. Extras are a bit sketchy as well. This one can be skipped, but if nothing else, rent it first.

The cast of this film is comprised of some very funny people (Steve Zahn, Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Kevin Heffernan) but sadly that doesn't translate into a funny film. I too laughed at various points in the movie but by as it wore on I found myself trying not to hit the Fast-Forward button on my remote. Too bad...

I was unable to resist that urge and ended up fast forwarding shortly after the turkey scene. I agree with you that this was certainly disappointing and unexpected given the cast involved.

This movie was horrible. The only funny part is in the commercial with the laughing shark.

Good review tho Nate. Although it seems like you had more laughs than I had. haha

Damn, I was going to say possible rental but judging by the comments I think I'll stick to my original gut reaction when I first saw the theatrical trailer and that's PASS.
