The film starts off with a catchy song talking about our main character the applejack salesman. We see him drinking with the local trappers and just having a great life until a beaver steps into the picture. This small incident with the beaver starts an ongoing series of events that tests the main character.

These events fuel the movie and our character goes from one ridiculous moment to another. Everything goes wrong from him as he tries to fish or grab a few eggs to eat. Kids will get a kick out of seeing these multiple failures and the expressions on his face. Since there is no dialogue the movie relies on the actors expressions and actions.

Here’s where the genius of Hundreds of Beavers comes into play. While adults can compare the film to old Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton movies, kids will have nothing to reference this to. Because of that this movie can open new experiences for families and have them watch these older movies with their kids. Suddenly black and white comedies with no sound will be popular again! At least in theory!

The fight with the beavers is one aspect of the movie and the other one is the salesman trying to woo the daughter of the local merchant. These scenes are also great especially one involving carefully placed snow to cover his naked body. Does he win her heart and gain the approval of the merchant? You will have to watch and see.

If Hundreds of Beavers is not playing near you pre-order it on AppleTV and watch it with your family!

Final Thoughts: Hundreds of Beavers is the type of movie that you watch for the sheer absurdity of it. The vaudeville style is hilarious and keeps you entertained throughout the film. Movies like this come once in a while and show us how silly a night at the movies can be.

Kid-Friendly: There are a few images that might be questionable for example decoy female bunnies made with snow and enormous breasts. The movie is unrated but it is a fun time for the whole family.

Violence: The violence in the movie is more slapstick than anything. There is violence against some of the beavers, rabbits and dogs but it’s silly because it is people in animal costumes.

In this silent supernatural epic, a drunken applejack salesman is thrust into the frigid wilderness. Can he go from Zero to Hero, become North America’s greatest fur trapper, and defeat hundreds of beavers?
