Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: A successfully infantile new spin on Deliverance.

- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, August 20, 2004

Rotten: The first half of the film is enjoyable but hit and miss. After that, it's just miss.

- Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, August 20, 2004

Rotten: Think Road Trip meets City Slickers. Then dial the humor down a few notches, and you're left Without a Paddle.

- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Friday, August 20, 2004

A watchable comedy, perhaps one that the children will like more than adults, although a little adult humour in it too. An adventure for three united friends with disastrous consequences. Watchable if you catch it on tv, but no need to rent or buy.

Not as bad as I thought it would be. It?s a cross between the Goonies and Deliverance. It?s alright. A few absolute gems in the script upped my rating for this film though!
