Poor Max Grabelski doesn't have any luck at all. What little he had runs out when local racketeers set the bungling delivery man up to take the fall for their money-laundering schemes. Sure enough, when the government agents arrive, he is found holding a package filled with loot. Not only that, but the Feds think he is the one who killed a notorious gambler/con artist. Max flees and ends up being mistaken, by six Boy Scouts, for the veteran mountain guide who is supposed to take them into the wilderness for a weekend campout. This slapstick comedy chronicles his crazy adventures as the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bushwhacked isn't much of a movie. But it made me laugh more than I'd like to admit."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"[A] strained, way, way over-the-top comedy-thriller in which its star, Daniel Stern, as the film's executive producer, gives himself free rein to mug and show off to increasingly numbing and tedious effect."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The script jerks from scene to scene like a string of sketches, and if there's any debate about whether or not to see it, your degree of tolerance for Stern's sad-sack mugging should be the deciding factor."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The kind of bubble that early man would rub on himself to ward off biting insects."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"The kids are all standard-issue, pretty cute and functioning as a group rather than individual characters. Likewise the parents."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Riddled with noble sentiments and good intentions, this great-outdoors hijinx is hiking familiar trails with a combination of bathroom humor, cute kids and a fuzzy, happy ending."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"With a little effort from viewers, Daniel Stern's dumb comedy, Bushwhacked, might bring on a smile. But don't expect anything so grand as a chuckle."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"After a funny opening, it goes downhill very quickly."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"One can only hope that Daniel Stern got paid per humiliaiton."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"The ensuing wilderness antics are, well, sweet, bland, and shapeless."
‑ Hollis Chacona, Austin Chronicle
"A little bit of Daniel Stern's mugging, dimwit style of comedy goes a long way."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"This is an occasion when it's far better to see the trailer and skip the actual film. Once the opening credits start rolling, it's all downhill."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Totally unfunny."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Within this outdoor comedy's first minute, you know it's going to be sun-baking terrible."
‑ Michael Lightcap, Boxoffice Magazine
"It ain't Shakespeare, but it's a decent pre-pube flick about a New Yawk bozo and a bunch of cute kids flopping around in the ponderosa."
‑ Gary Kamiya, San Francisco Examiner
