Unfunny "comedy" is crude, profane, drug-filled.

this is for wierd peaple

Strange Wilderness is for people who are high and love to laugh. It is an out of the ordinary situation. And the characters are unbelievable because there faces are weird and there are glitches in the movie so I don’t recommend this movie to anybody to watch it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (12 ):

There's no storytelling here, and the jokes are lifeless or just plain bad. The biggest mystery in STRANGE WILDERNESS isn't whether the crew will ever find Bigfoot (viewers will likely be way past caring by the time that plot point is resolved); it's how producers managed to wrangle a fairly good cast and still turn out such a dud. Consider this: The film's "highlight" is a gag that has a turkey clinging to Peter's private parts with its beak.

Zahn has potential. He's slacker-sleepy and likable, delivering jokes without overselling them. But his insouciant charm sadly does him no good in this lackluster comedy. Really, he deserves so much better, and Judd Apatow muse Jonah Hill, who plays Peter's assistant, ought to have steered clear as well.
