When Jim is left stranded at the altar, best friends Rick
and Ted and older brother Bill whisk him away on an impromptu
camping trip to spare him the humiliation of facing his friends
and family. The guys wash up at a bait shop on the edge of
nowhere, with a rental car full of freshly-purchased camping
gear and no real plan.
They happen upon a canoe outfitter, who reluctantly agrees
to rent them boats, even though in late October the season
is long since over. Suddenly their half-baked road trip becomes
a half-baked canoe trip. Dumped on an isolated riverbank in
pitch blackness, the guys begin making camp and drinking heavily.
