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. But when they run into a group of preppy college kids who assume from their looks that they must be in-bred, chainsaw-wielding killers, Tucker & Dale's vacation takes a bloody and hilarious turn for the worse.

Should we be doing this?

It's still a crime scene.

Sack up, Billy. It's called

"investigative journalism" for a reason.

Yeah, but don't we need a press pass

or a permit or something?

Press pass this!

You know, the police missed

something here, I can feel it.

What do you say, Billy? Won't a Peabody

Award look great up on your...

Yo, Chuck, speed up, man!

Yeah, man, speed up.

Guys, this is my dad's car.

So if I go any faster, he will kill me.

Holy shit!

- Shit!

- Jesus, that was close.

You f*cking assholes!

We are in hillbilly country now, boys.

Squeal like a pig!

Yeehaw!

Chad, just cos they're not in your

fraternity doesn't mean they're freaks.

Actually, it does, Allison. You see,

you're either Omega Beta or you're a freak.

- Omega Beta! Omega Beta!

- F*ck.

- Chi, chi, chi!

- I'm in a oar full of morons.

No, if we were morons,

we wouldn't have thought to bring this.

OK, I stand corrected.

You are a f*cking genius.

Hey, Chuck, speed up, man.

They're gonna pass us.

Oh, jeez. Whoa, Jesus.

Did you see the way

those guys looked at us?

Hey, guys! Guys!

We forgot the beer!

No!

Sure you got everything

you need? Cos once you get up there...

Can I help you?

Uh, yeah. Where's your beer at?

Beer's in the back.

You see the way them kids looked?

Read that list back to me.

OK, three-quarter-inch nails,

hacksaw, baling hooks,

brush-clearing Scythe, clamps...

Hey, Chad, do we need more bug...

- "crosscutting handsaw...

- Chad?

- lubricated condoms...

- Chad?

Hand drill...

.feminine napkins,

stone bit, one-eighth hole saw...

- Oh, my God!

- It's just me.

Let's get out of here.

This place is so creepy.

- Dale, we need anything else?

- Pickled eggs. Six-pounder.

Oh, hot dog, Tucker. Have you ever

seen anything like that in your life?

There's nothing so special about them.

- They're just your average college girls.

- Nothing average about that.

You know something, Dale?

She's just human. Why don't you

go over there and talk to her?

Talk to her? What?

What in the world would I say?

I don't know. Tell her that you got a vacation home.

That'll probably impress her.

Are you out of your mind, Tucker?

These are college girls.

They grew up with vacation homes,

and guys like me fixing their toilets.

You gotta have some faith in yourself, man.

Girls can smell fear.

Now come on!

You are a good-lookin' man...

more or less.

You got a damn good heart.

Yup.

I mean, that's two things right there.

Now, go on, get over there.

What's the worst that could happen?

You know something?

- You're right, Tuck. I'm gonna do it.

- All right.

- I'm gonna do it right now.

- All right, hold up.

All right, now, whatever you say,

just smile and laugh.

It shows confidence.

Smile and laugh. OK.

- Do it.

- All right.

You guys, uh...goin' campin'?

Hey! Hey. Now, look...

we don't want any trouble, all right?

- So just...back off.

- Whoa!

- OK. OK. I'm sorry.

- Back off!

Get in the truck.

That's a-a good-lookin' cooler...

I told you, Tucker.

I'm a zero with the ladies.

They hate my face!

Come on.

I ain't like you, Tucker, you know?

I can't talk to the ladyfolk the way you can.

No one can. I mean, I...

I always get all stupid, and my hands get

clammy, and I just act like a big fat idiot.

You know what your problem is?

You got an inferiority complex.

No, I don't.

- Yeah, yeah.

- No.

Let me tell you something, life is short.

You got to go after what you want.

Mm-hm.

Cos it sure as hell

ain't gonna just fall right in your lap.

- That's true, I reckon.

- Aw, shit.

- What are you doing?
