    A Howler If You're from MI

    My Hoosier husband and I watched it together. Even tho he said it was the *stupidest* movie he's ever seen, he sure did laugh out loud a lot. Yah, some of it's pretty cheesy and I agree that the UFO thing was a bit overdone. But, Michiganders who have buck fever or watched it rampage in their co-workers, friends, and families, will have a great time. I especially loved the fact that Daniels used local people where he could. For example, the woman who drops her groceries when she sees Reuben drive by.

    STILL LAUGHING LONG AFTER RETURNING IT TO THE VIDEO STORE

    Truly destined to become a ''Cult Classic'' to be watched again and again! Not since Blazing Saddles, have I laughed so much during a movie.Should be required viewing for every 'Yooper' who takes his rifle for a walk in the woods every Fall. Jeff Daniels does an superb job in depicting the true intimacies of 'Deer Camp'. Even 'non Yoopers', like me, should thouroghly enjoy this film.

    My 7 yr old almost wet himself laughing

    Anyone with a hunting camp will relate. Just loved the rituals before opening day and the fight to where Rueban was going to hunt.

    Laughter exradornaire

    This was as funny a movie as I have seen in years, loved it from beginning to end with 2 minor strange exceptions. It seemed un necessary to go over the top with the nose in butt flatulence scene, the rest of the scene was funny, and the suspect DNR ranger that tossed in suggestive ideas the film did not need. Other than that, it was an absolute hit, to yoopers or non yoopers alike. I felt like I was in deer camp again.

    So funny, it hurts

    If you're not from the upper Great Lakes region, most of this movie is going to go so far over your head, you won't even see it. But if you're a cheesehead like me, watching this is as natural is sitting down to a game of cribbage wit two or tree Lienie's, waiting for opening morning. The whole UFO bit was a little weird, but overall this movie was a great slice of northern life. I'm just not so sure I would ever want a woman with a ''tongue like a trout and hands like a logger...''

    Escanaba in da Moonlight

    This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.The true to life,awkward backwoods attitudes and clumsy attempt to perform the rituals to bag a buck, had my whole family laughing until we hurt. Our group of veiwers ranged in age from 84 to 14. Wonderful, clean show, Jeff Daniels should do more of this kind of films!!!!!!

    If you think this was funny...

    Hey I just watched Jeff Daniel's second directorial debut called Super Sucker. If you loved Escanaba in da Moonlight you will definately appreciate this.It is another great performance by Jeff Daniel's as a Super Sucker vacuum cleaner salesmen who finds a ''special'' use for a cleaning attachment.Then it's funky time. If you get a chance check it out it should be in theatres soon

    Say ya to the UP eh!

    This was great. I am originally from the UP and could relate. The story of deer camp was well depicted. I laughed so hard and would recommend this movie to all my yooper friends. I don't know if you could understand the humor if you have never been to the UP. Thank you Jeff Daniels.

    Escanaba in da Moonlight

    Just watched this for the third time and laughed just as hard as during the first viewing. The whole thing is so goofy yet well put together. Here's a salute to all hunters and yoopers everywhere and let's all move to Escanaba.

    Funnier than a porcupinepee

    I was reluctant about seeing tbis movie to say the least. Being a woman from the south and a new transplant to Michigan. I was convinced this movie was going to be cheesier than some and dumber that dumb. But, after some convincing, my husband and I went to the local cinema when it came out and I have truly never laughed harder in my life. Some scenes will make you laugh til ya cry!! Having grown up surrounded by hunters and the like, I think I finally have a partial insight to ''Deer camp''

    THE SANCTITY OF CAMP

    I¿d like to begin by saying it was very strange seeing my hometown on a movie screen, very weird just like some of the scenes in this picture. The Upper Peninsula, or U.P. as locals refer it to, is one of those regions of the country that is ripe for stereotyping. The large number of Scandinavian descendents has created a unique accent not unlike Minnesota. It is a source of amusement to outsiders and I have to admit going home a few times a year, I detect it as well. Then promptly pick up a bit of it and get razzed when I return to Iowa where I now live. However, anyone who equates the unique environment, colloquialisms, and accent with ignorance is making a very big error in judgment. The level of education in the U.P. far surpasses other areas in the US with the same or higher population density. You will find many college graduates not using their skills and accepting low paying jobs for the privilege of living in this very special and beautiful country. I had a small problem with this stereotyping in the movie but the incredible humor over road my objections. And believe me, this movie is incredibly humorous for those who can relate to it. <p> The sanctity of camp and pasties was depicted with such accuracy, I am sure that Jeff Daniels spent a good deal of time gathering information sitting around camp. Every female growing up in the U.P. looks forward to camp almost as much as the hunters and there are a very rare few who accompany them there. Camp is sacred. It is the place where a few weeks out of the year men can be manly, men. They can live like pigs, eat what they want, drink, 'flatulence' (the more common word is against the rules), play cards and basically do all those things they can¿t in their own homes every other day of the year. They usually come home to rearranged or new furniture (because all the women know how much money is spent in the hunting venture), new hairstyles and clothing or on a few occasions `traveling¿ papers. Hunting season is an institution and that was accurately depicted in this piece. <p> The slant on Native American legends and beliefs was rather insulting and made into a trivial object when it deserves a great deal more respect. The spiritualism of this culture should not be treated in this manner any more then other forms of religion. The `weirdness¿ of how it was presented detracted greatly from the movie. My entire family felt this way. When your teenagers agree with you on a subject, it¿s a rare occasion and deserves notice. <p> Overall, our living room was filled with recognition, understanding and great deal of laughter. I would recommend this movie to anyone who can relate to the U.P., hunting or the Red Green Show.

    You Don't Need No Porpines to Piss Your Pants

    You will laugh, if you've been anywhere near a Yooper, and all that being near a Yooper entails.. or is it entrails? Just don't forget the camps, eh?
