After the genial, beloved TV host of the popular wildlife show "Strange Wilderness" passes on to the great nature special in the sky, his son Peter Gaulke (Steve Zahn) takes over the series,and things are never the same.
...
Ignorant, bumbling and blissfully unaware of his own lack of talent, Pete sprinkles his documentary narrations with such dubious factoids as "Bears derive their name from a football team in Chicago" and "Beavers are believed to be a distant cousin of the watermelon."When the ratings sink to an all-time low and the show is about to be cancelled, Pete and his filmmaking partner Fred Wolf (Allen Covert) realize they have to come up with "something big" to save the series.
...
Their luck seems to take a turn for the better when Pete gets a visit from his father's backwoods survivalist friend Bill Calhoun (Joe Don Baker), who offers to sell him a map to Bigfoot's jungle hideout.
...
Convinced this is the big break they've been waiting for, Pete and Fred hire two new crewmembers, Bill Whitaker (Kevin Heffernan), an alcoholic auto mechanic, and Cheryl (Ashley Scott), a surprisingly qualified and beautiful travel coordinator, and set off for Ecuador in their dilapidated RV.

"This movie wouldn't have been the same without the cast we had," says Gaulke.
...
At the center of the film is Steve Zahn ("Daddy Day Care," "National Security"), who plays the accidental host of his late father's wildlife show, a character named after co-creator Peter Gaulke.
...
Zahn was Gaulke and Wolf's first choice, but the actor was in the midst of his own "strange wilderness" when the part was being cast.
...
"So it came right down to the wire," continues Gaulke, "and he called up and said he was reading it and laughing really loud.
...
"Pete and I don't know much about filmmaking, but we've got a lot of enthusiasm and we want to be good.
...
After an extensive interview process, Peter and Fred end up hiring Bill Whitaker (Kevin Heffernan), an alcoholic hoping to kick his drinking habit by spending time in the wilderness.
...

...
To round out the expedition team, Fred and Peter also hire Cheryl (Ashley Scott), a sexy twenty-something who is charged with handling all the crew's travel arrangements.
