czetie: As a footnote, the version shown on TV (even basic cable in many cases) edits out some graphic but important details. For the full experience, you need to see the uncut version, which sometimes is advertised with the tag line "What REALLY happened on the Cahulawassee River?" -- contrast with the official tag line on the poster above.
gaslight: [www.emovieposter.com image 550x790]They should have played golf.The basic story is of four Atlanta businessmen on a river trip. These modern men are wholly unprepared for what happens when they raise the ire of some moonshiners they encounter. Reduced to men on the run, the four struggle to make it back to their car to floor it out of the woods. Needless to say, the it's not that simple.
gaslight: However, as a kid, what I imagined the film versions to be was generally much, much worse that what I saw eventually.
Ebenator: Read the Dickey novel as well.
optikeye: The movie is ruined for me when it reaches the absurd notion that even a hillbilly would choose to fark Ned Beatty over Jon Voight.
Guuberre: My family considers this to be a home movie....
Bruce the Deuce: In college my wife screened the movie for a couple of friends visiting from France. During the Ned Beatty rape scene they said, "No say "oui", say "no!"
varmitydog: With all the gays Atlanta nowadays, if some backwood pervs ass raped a group of Atlanta businessmen the town would start a canoeing trend as soon as the word got out.
freetomato: A low rent version is "Southern Comfort" about National Guardsmen who fark with the wrong Cajuns while on annual training in the bayou. Young Powers Boothe.....grrrrrr!
Lava Lamp Repairman: HTF do I f*ck up by clicking the link, only to see the 3:00 trailer?
mccoma: I still want to go to a national park, put a solar powered, motion activated, music player playing banjo music in a tree just off a hiking trail. I get the feeling you could get some great youtube videos out of it.
