A second rate Napoleon Dynamite clone.
- The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang review by CP Customer
To say this film is from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite is stretching the truth somewhat. The only things that link the two films are Director Tim Skousen was a second unit director on N.D, Jon Header has a five second one line cameo, and it's a shameless attempt to jump on the success of a far superior film. Everything that made Napoleon Dynamite a cult classic is lacking in this film, writer and director Tim Skousen blatantly attempts to recreate what he feels is the same formula as N.D but fails completely. The dialogue in parts is quite good, but the acting and timing is so wooden and stilted that lines that should be funny just come off flat, and scenes that should be short and memorable are overly long and dull, the woodland fight scene towards the end of the film is especially bad. Added to this the story is told over various timelines which completely breaks any flow in the film. The films only saving grace is Justin Long as Zerk, who in a few scenes is pretty good. If you’re a fan Napoleon Dynamite I would avoid this and rent 'The Foot Fist Way' which is a much funnier film and in the same spirit as Napoleon Dynamite.
