People seem to be avoiding Nature Calls like the plague, but trust me, it's harmless. Speaking from personal experience, there are at least a handful of significant belly laughs throughout, and the film only clocks in at a breezy 79 minutes in total. Was it high art? No, but it definitely has an audience in mind, and it is certainly not without it's charm. The best way I could convey this amusing little flick to others is to tell people that it is kind of like Moonrise Kingdom meets The Bad News Bears meets something else entirely. I am not a huge Patton Oswalt fan but he was <more>
completely tolerable and even somewhat likable here. That being said, he is still no Johnny Knoxville. Whether you enjoyed Jackass or not, the man is a national treasure, and yes, frequently hilarious. While Oswalt was good, Knoxville obviously brought his comedic A game to the table. He was goofy, energetic, and surprisingly human at times. There is a moment in the film when he is tied to a cross and that alone is worth at least the price of a rental. Simply put, if all of these reasons are not enough for you to take a chance on this quirky, agenda-less screwball indie than all I have to say is this...THERE IS A CHARACTER IN THIS FILM THAT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A NAKED WOMEN RIDING A MOTORCYCLE THROUGH THE WOODS. BOOM!
I'm nearly convinced this was some sort of meta piece. Writer/Director Todd Rohal is either playing a huge joke on everyone by writing such a bad and structurally inefficient script, or it's just that bad. I'm sure of the former.To start, it feels like three different movies were written and made. Then they were somehow carefully edited into one single film. Nothing feels natural about how the movie moves from point to point. Oswalt seems to exist almost outside of the movie itself. It was a Disney kids movie at points, and really felt like it. Other moments it felt a Hangover <more>
type Rob Riggle was uncomfortably out of place in this, but hysterical non-the-less . There was even a very dark "Apocalypse Now" moment, complete with strange religious elements and all. Then some of the elements slowly meshed into a very strange cavalcade of dark humor.There was literally a scene with two different scores going on at the same time. One is the 90's campy "going on vacation" family pace. The other is somewhat Wagner. Neither score correctly matched the tone of the scene.I'm still not sure what the hell I watched. I'm convinced this needs to be a cult classic, at least on some post-modern level. The fact that Patton Oswalt is even involved means that someone did this on purpose.Then there was the naked chick on the motorcycle. It's almost as if the writer thought to himself, what's the most out of place thing I can put in a kids movie at the most illogical time in the movie?
The haters are going to hate but I loved it! (by Hellmant)
'NATURE CALLS': Four Stars Out of Five Patton Oswalt and Johnny Knoxville play rival brothers who grew up disagreeing the most on scouting which their father loved . Oswalt plays a scout leader who so desperately wants his scout troop to get more involved in scouting that he kidnaps them from his brother's sleepover and takes them on a real wilderness scouting trip. His obsessed brother, Knoxville, goes crazy trying to track them down. The movie has a great premise and some big big laughs. It misfired finding the right audience but I thought it was hilarious at times.Oswalt <more>
plays Randy and Knoxville plays Kirk. Randy grew up loving scouting, much to his father's approval, and became a scout leader following in his dad's footsteps . Kirk grew up hating scouting and went into business with his friend Gentry the hilarious Rob Riggle . Kirk and his wife Janine Maura Tierney recently adopted a ten-year-old boy from Africa named Dwande Thiecoura Cissoko . One weekend Randy is supposed to take his troop camping in a parking lot and the kids all bail on him to go to Dwande's sleepover at Kirk's house. Randy, inspired by his elderly ill father, rounds up all the kids from his brother's house and takes them on a real wilderness camping trip without anyone's permission . Kirk and Gentry try to track them down, obsessively, along with another father comedian Patrice O'Neal in his last film while the kids of course learn something about themselves and surviving in the wilderness.The movie got a lot of bad reviews from critics and movie nerds but I think it missed it's target audience. I almost passed on the movie because of the negative hype but I'm glad I decided to give it a try. I thought it was very funny quite frequently. The cast is all topnotch and writer/director Todd Rohal did a great job of delivering a madcap 80's style comedy. It's of course too crude and over the top for some but that's what I loved about it; it has an amazing amount of unchecked aggressive comedic energy. It's raunchy and vulgar and at the same time it's a heartfelt R rated kids' flick just like it's 80's inspirations . The haters are going to hate but I loved it!
What the F*** is wrong with everyone?! This movie isn't bad.. (by jvirga)
Just because this movie is a little different and doesn't pander to contemporary American sensibilities, doesn't mean it's horrible or has a bad script. Like I said it is a little different and vulgar at times. But it is entertaining and Patton Oswalt holds it together very nicely.Johnny Knocksville & Ron Riggle are at first hard to handle but I thought they were funny and a good addition to the story.It actually has a some very good messages about respecting nature and remembering to sometimes forget about modern technologies and to go have fun outside.Stop hating on this <more>
