Go rent Escanaba in da Moonlight. It's about a family, the Soadys, in the Upper Peninsula. It's opening day of deer season, and Reuben "The Buckless Yooper" Soady is 43. If he doesn't bag a deer this year, then he'll go down in history as the oldest Soady without a deer. But with the UFOs, a Ranger seeing God up on the ridge, and various and sundry other mystical and strange events, the whole family is starting to wonder whether they might oughta go back to town. It's been almost 24 hours since I watched it, and I'm still laughing about parts of it. Really. I am. Ask the people in the cubicle next to me.
