    Blends classic elements of fantasy, teen-angst and coming-of-age tales to create a genre all its own. And through it all, the movie is undeniably wholesome.

    Beautifully encapsulates the film's sensibility, a bizarre mix of reverse cool and childishness.

    Gavin’s story is typical teen-faces-bullies-and-gets-girl hokum, while Zerk is like a Mike Judge cartoon character come to life, with a revelatory slapstick performance from the often straight-laced Long.
  4. Very much reminiscent of "Napoleon" in numerous ways only minus the wit, the film is made somewhat palatable by its inherent sweetness and its treatment of typical adolescent angst.
  5. There’s precious little to laugh at in The Sasquatch Gang, a sad attempt to board the loser-nerd comedy bandwagon.

I thought I was going to be seeing a movie with Justin Long and Joey Kern as the main actors, but I was wrong. It was a bunch of lame kids and some huge fat guy who mumbled the whole movie... Horrible movie. On the back of the box it said "I laughed so hard I cried" This movie was so bad I almost cried. Full Review »

    Some good ideas that don't fit together very well. Feels slow and herky-jerky but there's still some good laughs to be had.
