Slamdance favorite THE SASQUATCH DUMPLING GANG gets picked up!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a bit of news on a flick that won the audience award at SLAMDANCE this year, THE SASQUATCH DUMPLING GANG, produced by NAPOLEON DYNAMITE producers and directed by NAPOLEON's first A.D.

The movie is about a group of sci-fi nerds who find large footprints in the woods and think they've discovered Bigfoot.

I haven't seen this one yet, but I know people who have, people who's opinions I trust, and they were in love with the movie, telling me it it was this generation's MONSTER SQUAD. Thems is high praise for me and a bar that has been set incredibly high. You can't just lightly throw out MONSTER SQUAD comparisons with me and this friend knows it, too. I hope to see the flick and now that Sony BMG has the distribution rights, hopefully that'll be sooner rather than later. BMG is Sony's music branch, which is weird. I believe this is their first feature film (non-concert film) that they've distributed.

The movie stars Peter Pan (Jeremy Sumpter), Carl Motherfuckin' Weathers, Stephen Tobolowsky, CABIN FEVER's Joey Kern and JEEPERS CREEPERS dude Justin Long. Carl Weathers... Man I gotta see this movie!

    Action Jackson is the Sasquatch

    by nomihs

    Anything with Carl Weathers = Box Office GOLD. Also...Anything with a FIRST in the subject line = Moron. Lastly...Anything with a <FIRST> and a goddamn ? question ? mark ? following the FIRST? = Moron who doesn&#39;t know they are a moron. Get a friggin clue and come up with something better like..."How do you like your ribs?" Because basically anything quoted from Action Jackson is miles above what any <FIRST> posters could come up with.

    arm loss

    by rebel299

    well, i know in happy gilmore that his hand was bit off by an aligator. if i&#39;m not mistaken (and i very well could be because its been a while since i&#39;ve seen it) the predator lops off his arm abover the elbow. gotta love the falling dismembered limb still firing away on that gun. classic. but anyways, if he loses most of his arm in 87, his hand in 96, then maybe he&#39;ll lose a finger in &#39;06. god i hope so. such a great setup for a fart joke gone awry. Weathers - "Hey Sasquatch, pull my finger!"

    Carl has lost an arm, a hand . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    And has been killed by Ivan Drago, a Predator, and a fall from an apartment window after being frightened by a dead alligator. Damn! I&#39;m almost as pumped for this movie as I am for Snakes On A Plane!

    "This generation&#39;s Monster Squad?"

    by Mgmax

    In other words, a lame straight to video kiddie monster movie that no one but you remembers? I think it&#39;s actually this generation&#39;s Laserblast, or The Further Adventures of Tennessee Buck.

    by damagedinc

    does that mean that this movie will be unwatchable post-puberty?

    oh god i can&#39;t stop laughing from all the clever insults. you are right man, i am such a moron! i bow before your infinate knowledge of all things carl weathers and your scornful demeanor. you really told me. you must be a real pro. this is why i read chud... its not crawling with half witted fanboys with nothing better to do than rail on people they have never met to numb the pain of thier cheeto covered, porn watching solitude. normally i would&#39;nt stoop, but it only seems fitting to use a tired cliche&#39; like "get a life"

    well, thats not fair

    by washisdead

    i do read this site as much as chud and i appreciate the staff... i just can&#39;t stand the bottom feeders that have NOTHING better to do than vomit unnecessary and malicious trite while pretending they know ANYTHING about movies. can&#39;t you think of anything healthy and constructive to do? try reading. maybe you can come up with something better than "moron"
