In this feature-length documentary, Troy James Hurtubise goes face to face with Canada's most deadly land mammal, the grizzly bear. Troy is the creator of what he hopes is a grizzly-proof suit, and he repeatedly tests his armour – and courage – in stunts that are both hair-raising and hilarious. Directed by Peter Lynch, the film has become a cult classic in the United States and is rumoured to be a favourite of director Quentin Tarantino.

    Non-stop unintentional comedy. Hilarious. And ridiculous.

    This film explains a lot, particularly for anyone trying to understand Sarah Palin and most Republicans. It's no coincidence Ms. Palin calls herself "Momma Grizzly." If she was cut out of this movie somebody did the US a disservice.
