Item Details

They left their troubles at the office. Left the wives and kids behind. Four men bound for the wilderness, for a great adventure--without their golf clubs. Lewis has talked his buddies Ed, Drew, and Bobby into going on a canoe trip down the Cahulawassee River, which is being soon to be dammed. It was the weekend they hoped for, but it turns out to be a weekend where the destruction of nature, macho posturing, conflict between city and country folk, and the dangerous disconnection of modern civilization from nature will loom entirely too large.

Not a perfect movie, but a better one than you might ever hope to see Burt Reynolds in. He's actually better than Jon Voight in this (in my opinion).
Unlike many movies from the '70s, this one ages well. The supporting cast is excellent. And (almost) all of the stunts were done by the actors.
Not for the faint of heart - it gets a bit nasty.

Great movie. Redefined what iot meant to be brutalized by rednecks in the woods who like to tell you to squeal like a pig. Seriously, people, this movie is subtle and creepy, and works well because of that.
