The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter
From the Daily Dot
For director and co-writer Jody Hill and co-writer and star Danny McBride, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter is a blandly likable leftover about a father-son relationship in desperate need of mending. At the center of Whitetail is Buck Ferguson (Josh Brolin), a renowned hunter with a low-rent TV show called Buck Fever. Buck is going through a divorce and he's taking his son, Jaden (Montana Jordan) hunting. The plan is for Jaden to kill his first whitetail deer and to capture the moment on Buck Fever. So Buck, Jaden, and Buck's cameraman Don (McBride) head for the great outdoors. Whitetail is nearly humorless with bad, crude jokes kneecapped by the soft rating, and it feels like a palate cleanser for Hill and McBride. Here's hoping the comedy stars got whatever Whitetail is out of their system.
