You asked for comedy! Well, many of you did. Jeff Daniels’ tale of the Soady Family Deer Camp and its kooky inhabitants makes for a truly hilarious evening.
The story follows Reuben Soady’s quest to “bag” his first buck. At 43, Rueben is on the verge of becoming a disgrace to himself and his Soady heritage, and is known around town as “the Buckless Yooper”. He is committed to changing his luck, though, with a little help from his Native American wife. But on the eve of the 1989 hunting season, these yoopers are in for a few strange surprises…for all is not well in the Upper U.P.
