Two best friends that have lost touch and a foreigner in a strange land head into the wilderness on a hilariously harebrained expedition when WITHOUT A PADDLE: NATUREâ€™S CALLING comes exclusively to DVD and Blu-ray from Paramount Home Entertainment on January 13, 2009. An uproarious follow up to the 2004 hit adventure comedy Without a Paddle, this all-new movie marks the first feature from Paramount Famous Productions, the studioâ€™s recently launched made-for-home entertainment production division. It stars Oliver James (What a Girl Wants, Raise Your Voice), Amber McDonald (You Tell Me), Madison Riley (Bratz), Kristopher Turner (â€œA Dad for Christmasâ€), Rik Young (Beowulf), Ellen Albertini Dow (Wedding Crashers) and former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice in an anything-goes whitewater adventure awash in laughs and thrills. The WITHOUT A PADDLE: NATUREâ€™S CALLING DVD and Blu-ray include a boat load of featured including deleted as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette.
Everything that 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 womanâ€™s missing granddaughter whose last known address isâ€”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.
WITHOUT A PADDLE: NATUREâ€™S CALLING is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. Total runtime is 90 minutes. The DVD includes:
