In this episode The Soylent GreenScreen goes searching for Sasquatch, but all we get is more Justin Long. In the first half we discuss the Happy Madison produced, Strange Wilderness. Through our discussion we try to figure out if Adam Sandler produces these movies as a tax dodge, the brilliance of Steve Zahn and Justin Long and the ways that they pulled together a pretty fantastic comedic cast for a film that was loathed by critics and shunned by audiences upon release, but is gradually developing a cult following for the ways in which they parody TV wildlife personalities such as Bear Grills and Steve Irwin, and America’s cultural obsession with Bigfoot.

In the second half we discuss the very low budget Indie, kids comedy The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang. This was another Justin Long film that featured the search for Sasquatch (AKA Bigfoot). Throughout this half we discussed the history of The Dumpling films that inspired this film, the inspiration of Napoleon Dynamite. The coming of age story, and theorize about why Sasquatch is often used in kids’ films.
