'Strange Wilderness' not sure what it's supposed to be

How we love our TV wildlife programmes … how you’re going to hate this mish-mash of a film that really doesn’t know what it's supposed to be.

The story concerns Zahn as the loser son of a well-known wildlife presenter who heads off into the jungle in search of something that will rescue his no-hope career.

It’s supposed to be a comedy: supposed because it’s not funny and has the sort of voice-over inserts that no tele prog would stand for.

The dialogue is so bad you hope it ends soon … not soon enough.

Star Rating: 1/5
