awash in laughs and thrills. The WITHOUT A PADDLE: NATURE’S CALLING DVD and Blu-ray include a boat
load of featured including deleted as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette.
can go wrong goes hilariously wrong when two best friends and one zany Brit venture out into the
wilderness in search of a high school sweetheart. On this trip, the stakes are higher, the river is
wilder and the creatures are nuttier! Trying to grant a last wish to a little old lady (Ellen
Albertini Dow), lawyer Ben (Oliver James) and nursing home attendant Zach (Kristopher Turner) join
forces with a wacky Brit named Nigel (Rik Young) in search of the woman’s missing granddaughter
whose last known address is—the wilderness. These three not-exactly-outdoorsmen demonstrate their
subsistence level survival skills in a series of sidesplitting misadventures sure to have audiences
camping out in front of the TV again and again.
