The Sasquatch Gang (The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang)
As a trio of fantasy-obsessed, sword-fighting geeks attempt to prove that the giant tracks discovered deep in the forest offer undisputed proof that Bigfoot truly exists, a stoned-out bully and his best friend scheme to profit from their elaborate prank before an overzealous Sasquatch hunter arrives to blow the whole scam sky-high. His beloved Pontiac Firebird threatened with repossession by the bank, mullet-haired menace Zerk (Justin Long) convinces his best friend, Shirts (Joey Kern), to help raise money to save the car by selling plaster casts of fake Bigfoot tracks on the Internet.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's precious little to laugh at in The Sasquatch Gang, a sad attempt to board the loser-nerd comedy bandwagon."
‑ Jane H. Lii, New York Times
"I'd say it must be seen to be believed, but really you ought to wait for TiVo on this one, so you can just skip to the good parts."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"Skousen as storyteller captures the language, the drag, the excesses and the simultaneously sad and wonderful friendships cementing each group."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"The rather limited outcast-comedy premise is already tapped out. So this painfully unfunny film seems considerably longer than its scant 90-minute running time."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Full of quotable lines and totally unique characters, Sasquatch Dumpling Gang blends classic elements of fantasy, teen-angst and coming-of-age tales to create a genre all its own."
‑ Sally Foster, Film Threat
"It's unfortunate, then, that [Skousen] can't pick a protagonist"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Village Voice
"The Sasquatch Gang may not fully qualify as an undiscovered gem, but it's got some dynamite all its own."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"[Writer/director Tim] Skousen's low-budget lark is a thing of small virtues."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Wacky characters doing silly things for nonsensical reasons seem to have become the standard paradigm for youth-oriented comedies of late."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"Most of the movie's villains are slack-jawed variations on Beavis and Butt-Head, but Kern's high-pitched dimwit steals the show. As his eyes glaze over, you can see a thought try to cross his face and give up halfway."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"Napoleon [Dynamite] fans will never admit to it, but Sasquatch is funnier, hinging on a bogus Bigfoot sighting and some hilariously stupid dudes."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"If you think it's easy to balance silliness and smarts the way Napoleon Dynamite did, see what happens when it's done badly."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Tim Skousen was first assistant director on Napoleon Dynamite, and he does little other than mimic its slightly off-kilter comedic tone and bizarre misfit characters."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
