I will be upfront I am a bit biased when it comes to this movie. I am a sucker for cheesy movies that focus on the mundane nature of human life. You might compare this to movies like Napoleon Dynamite or Nacho Libre because of its subdued tone.

The movie is about friends who find evidence that Big Foot is real. This movie is unique in that it plays with how it tells its narrative. The movie jumps between perspectives, focusing on a new character each time. The film will retell the same story through this shifting perspective until it all comes together at the end. I believe this movie does this very well. I never felt confused by the shifts and appreciated the new details highlighted with each retelling. The attention to detail is pretty solid in this movie.

Yes, the movie might be cheesy. The acting can be over the top in places. The plot is silly. But it comes together to be an entertaining story that I hold dear to my heart. Look, it might not hit everyone the same way. There is no wacky adventure full of unbelievable hijinks. Instead, it’s a story about a group of people in a sleepy town whose lives get shaken up slightly by a single event. It can be slow, some of the jokes do not land, but you have to appreciate the narrative. You can do a lot worse for free.
