OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 30 moviegoers:
MALES:It's no surprise that most of the teen males loved "Strange Wilderness." It's written for them. Same for the twentysomething age group. Even the two adult males enjoyed it. I'm a 50+ male and I thought it was very funny at times, but mostly too stupid. For younger guys I highly recommend "Strange Wilderness," as long as this is the type of movie you generally enjoy.
FEMALES:There are only a few female reviews so they aren't much help. About half enjoyed it and half rated it average to below average. So, chances are you will find it , at least, somewhat enjoyable.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After the genial, beloved TV host of the popular wildlife show "Strange Wilderness” passes on to the great nature special in the sky, his son Peter Gaulke (Steve Zahn) takes over the series…and things are never the same. Ignorant, bumbling and blissfully unaware of his own lack of talent, Pete sprinkles his documentary narrations with such dubious factoids as "Bears derive their name from a football team in Chicago” and "Beavers are believed to be a distant cousin of the watermelon.” When the ratings sink to an all-time low and the show is about to be cancelled, Pete and his filmmaking partner Fred Wolf (Allen Covert) realize they have to come up with "something big” to save the series. It looks like they've hit the jackpot when Pete lucks into a map of the legendary Bigfoot's secret cave. But when the clueless producer leads his ragtag crew to the wilds of Central America to film the elusive beast, they encounter a string of disasters, each more hilarious – and potentially lethal – than the last. The double-crossing jungle guides, voracious piranhas and hostile natives, however, are nothing compared to the mayhem these spectacularly incompetent filmmakers bring upon themselves.

Desperate for a stunt to drive "Strange Wilderness'” ratings back up and salvage the show, Pete brainstorms with his motley crew, which includes partner and soundman Fred (Allen Covert), cameraman Milas (Ernest Borgnine), Milas' stoner nephew Junior (Justin Long) and the show's lazy and obnoxious production assistant Cooker (Jonah Hill). Their luck seems to take a turn for the better when Pete gets a visit from his father's backwoods survivalist friend Bill Calhoun (Joe Don Baker), who offers to sell him a map to Bigfoot's jungle hideout. Convinced this is the big break they've been waiting for, Pete and Fred hire two new crewmembers, Bill Whitaker (Kevin Heffernan), an alcoholic auto mechanic, and Cheryl (Ashley Scott), a surprisingly qualified and beautiful travel coordinator, and set off for Ecuador in their dilapidated RV.

From the start, however, the ambitious expedition is beset with disasters. To film a segment on sharks, the filmmakers dress their driver Danny (Peter Dante) in a sea lion costume and lower him into shark-filled water, with predictably grievous results. Then, after an almost equally unfortunate – and equally preventable – run-in with some angry gangbangers, the production team arrives at Bill's cabin three days late and flat broke – only to find he has already sold the map to Sky Pierson. When the apologetic Bill agrees to give them a copy of the map and the name of an expert jungle tracker (Robert Patrick), the group heads south with hopes of beating their competitors to Bigfoot's reputed hideout. But it won't be easy. Along the way, the hapless crew will have to survive near- death encounters with overzealous border guards, an amorous turkey, flesh- eating fish, murderous natives and a host of other obstacles that more than live up to the name "Strange Wilderness.”
