Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil Review

Image for Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

Two good-natured mountain folk, Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Labine), head to their cabin in the mountains for a vacation. When the arrival of a group of preppy kids leads to the disappearance of one of their number, the remainder assume the pair are murderous hillbillies and launch a rescue mission...


Kindhearted backwoodsmen Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) head to their new ‘vacation home’ only to be stopped by a cop. “There is nothing there but evil on a scale you cannot imagine,” he says. The evil turns out to be a group of college kids who, after a misunderstanding in a gas station, and in a nice reversal of the slasher formula, become convinced they’re about to be given the Deliverance treatment by the hapless pair and launch an all-out attack. The hillbilly duo are the heart of this irresistibly likable comedy which doubles as a neat lesson about not judging people by their plaid shirts and beards. We’d like to see more of them: Tucker & Dale Vs Predator, anyone?

Genuinely funny. A life lesson in never prejudging a man just because he's skinning a squirrel.
