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.

Uh... That's OK, Tuck.

You take that. That's yours.

That's why you're never gonna

get ahead in life.

It's cos you don't stick up for yourself.

Do not even think about it.

- But you just said...

- Are you kidding me?

- OW!

- Are you serious?

What'd I just say?

- You said I gotta stick up for myself.

- I said, "Don't even think about it", though.

That was the last thing I said.


Is someone there?



God, Chad! What the hell are you doing?

- You are such an asshole.

- Come on, that was funny.

No, it wasn't.

You got nothing to worry about, Allie.

It's just me.

You totally freaked me out.

You know, you can drop the act now.

- What act?

- Like you're better than everyone else.

- I don't think...

- Yeah, you do.

But that's OK, Allie, because I get it.

I mean, you are better than everyone else.

You and I, Allie...

are cut from a different cloth.

You know what I mean?

- I'm not... I...

- All I'm saying is...

I'm glad that we have this chance

to get to know each other better.

Chad, you're drunk.

That's a good thing.

It lowers my inhibitions.

OK, uh...

- Come on, stop.

- Why?

Why? Why stop?

We're perfect for each other.

Let's talk about this later.

I'm gonna go catch up with everyone.

Come on, Allie. Come on...

Oh, it's so cold!

Here we go!

What's that all about?

I don't know,

but I think we should go check it out.

No. No, Tuck, you know what?

My guess would be that they

don't really want to see us right now.

- Yeah, I kind of want to see them.

- No, no.

What the hell are you doing?

- Damn it, Dale!

- What?

I'm not gonna go around

one more time with you on this.

- OK.

- Hush.

Whoo-hoo! I love camping!



- Tucker!

- Shush!

God damn it, Dale!

What the hell is the matter with you?

Me? What did I do?
