Two lovable hillbillies are headed to their “fixer-upper” vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin’, and have a good time. But when they run into a group of preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw-wielding killers, Tucker & Dale’s vacation takes a bloody and hilarious turn for the worse.
Our Thoughts on Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
Right off of the bat this movie was just fun! It was cheesy and cool at the same time. There were a lot of horror references, mostly to Evil Dead with the cabin and all but otherwise it was just fresh, at least to us who had never seen it before.
A special feature on the DVD plays the movie from the college kids’ perspective, in which Tucker and Dale are murderous villains.
Tyler Labine chose the “GIV’ER” hat to wear as Dale for two reasons. First, it looks like the word “GIVER” alluding to his kind and generous nature. Second, it is the Canadian equivalent of “Git ‘er done,” the redneck phrase popularized by Larry the Cable Guy.
