Movie Info

As a trio of fantasy-obsessed, sword-fighting geeks attempt to prove that the giant tracks discovered deep in the forest offer undisputed proof that Bigfoot truly exists, a stoned-out bully and his best friend scheme to profit from their elaborate prank before an overzealous Sasquatch hunter arrives to blow the whole scam sky-high. His beloved Pontiac Firebird threatened with repossession by the bank, mullet-haired menace Zerk (Justin Long) convinces his best friend, Shirts (Joey Kern), to help raise money to save the car by selling plaster casts of fake Bigfoot tracks on the Internet. When role-playing dweebs Gavin (Jeremy Sumpter), Hobie (Hubbel Palmer), and Maynard (Rob Pinkston) stumble upon the falsified "evidence," they naïvely assume it to be the genuine article. Now, self-proclaimed Sasquatch expert Dr. Artemis Snodgrass (Carl Weathers) is on his way to town to verify the widely reported discovery. With little time to loose before their ruse is revealed, the lame-brained Internet scammer and his pal rush to cash in as quickly as possible in order to save Zerk's sweet ride from the dreaded repo man.

Critic Reviews for The Sasquatch Gang

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (7)

  • There's precious little to laugh at in The Sasquatch Gang, a sad attempt to board the loser-nerd comedy bandwagon.

    Dec 7, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's unfortunate, then, that [Skousen] can't pick a protagonist

    Dec 4, 2007
  • Most of the movie's villains are slack-jawed variations on Beavis and Butt-Head, but Kern's high-pitched dimwit steals the show. As his eyes glaze over, you can see a thought try to cross his face and give up halfway.

    Dec 3, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • The Sasquatch Gang may not fully qualify as an undiscovered gem, but it's got some dynamite all its own.

    Nov 30, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Napoleon [Dynamite] fans will never admit to it, but Sasquatch is funnier, hinging on a bogus Bigfoot sighting and some hilariously stupid dudes.

  • Skousen as storyteller captures the language, the drag, the excesses and the simultaneously sad and wonderful friendships cementing each group.

Audience Reviews for The Sasquatch Gang

  • Nov 29, 2011
    This is not a great movie, not an awards contender, or really anything that should associated with any of those words. But I liked it. I liked the characters, despite their unattractive qualities. I liked the idea, which is original and not like anything you've seen in a movie before. I liked the comedy in it, and yes, it is in the manner of Napoleon Dynamite, but this is so much funnier than that. It's a small, little movie that is certain to get you laughing. So, please, do yourself a favor and watch this movie.

    A pretty good attempt at recapturing the magic of Napoleon Dynamite.

    Very unusual film. Not sure it lived up to its predecessor Napoleon Dynamite, but it had its funny moments. Justin Long was great in this film. He has proven that he can be great in a drama like He's Just Not That Into you, and then transcend into this half-bit comedy. The rest of the cast was dull. The story lines were dull and unbelievable, and just did not carry the weight that Napoleon had. Worth the watch for Justin Long, otherwise do not expect much.
