About the Movie
David (David Giuntoli) is left by his fiancé days before the wedding, and Flula (Flula Borg), his eccentrically upbeat best man, insists that they go on David’s honeymoon together: a backpacking trip through Oregon’s scenic mountains. Prepare to laugh when the pair crosses paths with a dazed conspiracy theorist (Brian T. Finney), an attractively charming backpacker (Claire Coffee), and a bloodthirsty predator (an actual wolf) who all partake in a trek that tests their friendship – and their lives. The BUDDYMOON adventures are bookended with passages from William Clark’s diary describing his friendship and expedition with Meriwether Lewis, giving David and Flula’s relationship a touch of male bonding history. BUDDYMOON is Alex Simmons’s first feature film, who has years of success in the documentary genre. He co-wrote the film with his friends and former roommates David Giuntoli and Flula Borg.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This first feature by TV documentary director Alex Simmons, about a weeklong, male-bonding hiking trip, hasn't packed enough plot or humor to distinguish itself amidst all that lush mountain greenery.
Fresh: Alex Simmons' debut feature is a fleet, consistently amusing 80-minute jaunt through the woods.
Fresh: The film is fiction, but you can see the ties of a real friendship at work here, and that is part of the charm.
Fresh: Everyone should have a friend like Flula (Flula Borg), a ridiculously optimistic German musician hiking with his American friend David (David Giuntoli) through the wilds of Oregon in the frequently funny "Buddymoon."
Simply fantastic! BOOM!
Easily my favorite movie of 2016 thus far, and one of the sweetest, most delightful comedies I've seen in years. It's fun to see David in a role so removed from "Grimm", and Flula's manic German enthusiasm serves as the perfect counterweight. Great buddy team, beautiful cinematography… Director Alex Simmons has crafted a simple and timeless love story (no, really!) that will be just as fresh down the road as it is today. Bravo to everyone involved!!
David + Flula = YES!
You had me with David and Flula at the start but then the actual movie is even better. I want to go on this BUDDYMOON too!
Flula and David Giuntoli are a great duo. Can't get enough of their bromance.
