Tucker and Dale vs Evil

Synopsis: Two lovable West Virginian hillbillies are headed to their "fixer-upper" vacation cabin to drink some beer, do some fishin', and have a good time.

- Shit, shit. We got a cop.

Oh, I got you.

I got a rag. Move your arm.

You spilled beer all over your crotch.

All right, he's pulling over.

- Get up, Dale.

- I can't.

- Dale, he's coming.

- No, it's stuck on my sleeve.

- Get up.

- My hand is stuck on...

Un-stuck it, then.

He's out of his car.

He's out of his car?

He's coming.

- Tucker!

- Get it...


- Howdy, Officer.

- Hey.

- It's a beautiful day, isn't it?

- Yeah.

License, please.

Uh, I lost my wallet a couple weeks back.

New one is in the mail.


Where you two headed?

We're headed to our vacation home

up by Morris Lake.

I sank every penny I had into it.

Me and Dale here, we're gonna go fix

'er up, maybe do a little fishin'.

- Do a little fishin'.

- He's been striking out with the ladies.

I figured a little man time

might do him some good.

There ain't nothing up there but pain and

suffering on a scale you can't even imagine.

I pulled you over cos

you got a broken turn signal.

Oh, yes, sir.

See that you, uh...

get that fixed.

That was very helpful.

- Man, that was tense.

- That dude's weird.

There he goes.


God, would you look at him?

You know what his problem is?

He was jealous because

he can't afford a place of his own.

Ah. Well...

Here's to the good life, huh?

- Oh, yeah.

- To the good life, man.

I mean, what's a parasite?

Oh, look at this little truck right here!

I know, I know.

Is that ours?

Wow. And another one right there.

Oh, my God.

It's perfect!

- And what did they call this, a fixer-upper?

- Yeah.

- All right, let's go check it out inside.

- Yeah.

I can't believe this is ours! Oh, my God!

- Well, it's just a little dusty is all.

- It's a mansion!

Whoever used to live here must have been

an archaeologist or something.
