Tucker and Dale vs. Evil-Review

Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are living their dream of buying a fixer-up vacation home. The fun times goes south right from the beginning when they come across a group of college students also on vacation-who think Tucker and Dale are weird and dangerous hillbillies. While both groups are enjoying a time of recreation by the lake (Tucker and Dale fishing and the college students taking a night swim), one of the college girls, Ally (Katrina Bowden), falls in the water and hits her head on a rock. Dale jumps in to save her. The other college students watch Tucker and Dale take Ally with them fearing that they are kidnapping her. The group makes a plan to rescue her but one-by-one, they are meeting their untimely death. Who is killing them? What will Tucker and Dale do with Ally? Are Tucker and Dale secret murders out on a killing spree vacation? 



At the beginning of the film, the first thing that came to mind was, “Aren’t filmmakers getting tired of doing the same cliché movies of the dumb arrogant jocks, the hot blondes and the token cultural character?” Seeing and liking the trailer, kept me watching. I love this film; it is so funny. My favorite character is Dale. He’s the type of guy that doesn’t have common sense but is really smart but doesn’t know it and he’s very caring. Even when he thinks that Tucker and his lives are in danger, he doesn’t want to use self-defense for fearing of hurting the attacker. The props and scenic areas are used comedically with the characters to make the action and lines funnier. This is a great laid-back movie when you just need to laugh. All in all, I will buy this film on DVD or Blu Ray.
