Aug 15, 2009Gone Fishing is about a couple of guys (Joe Pesci and Danny Glover) who win a contest and get to go on a free fishing trip. However, the fishing trip doesn't go as smoothly as planned. Their car gets stolen, there's a hurricane, and many other catastrophes plague them while they're supposed to be fishing. Gone Fishin' is a decent comedy movie and has some funny parts such as the scene when Joe Pesci gets struck by lightning, but overall it's not that great. Joe Pesci and Danny Glover are two of the best comedy movie actors and Gone Fishin' is a subpar movie for both of them. It is interesting to see how the movie will turn out and what's gonna happen next when they start getting plagued by all the disasters, but the comedy portion of the movie for the most part is just not there. None of the jokes are funny and what I really didn't like about it was that the name of the movie is Gone Fishin', but they never actually get to do any fishing the entire movie! If you've seen other Joe Pesci or Danny Glover movies, you'll find out that Gone Fishin' is not that great of a movie for them when you compare it to such movies as Home Alone and Lethal Weapon 4. However, I guess I would recommend renting this movie if you're dying to see a new comedy movie. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. It's indeed a subpar movie for Pesci and Glover's standards, but still worth a watch.Jason O Super Reviewer
