In this independent comedy, Danno (Dan Klein) is a shiftless young man who is taken aback when he learns that his mother is planning to marry his uncle. Figuring that he should be there for the event even though he's low on cash, Danno packs a bag and tries to hitchhike from Seattle to San Francisco. Danno catches a ride from Gil (John Reichmuth) and Roy (James Reichmuth), a pair of eccentric and not-especially-intelligent twins (one of whom has Viet Nam flashbacks, even though he's never been to war), whose antics keep him bemused (if puzzled) throughout the journey. Meanwhile, Danno's roommates, nervous Stephen (Gabe Weisert) and cranky Giles (William Birdthistle), are trying to put together a welcome home party for Danno with the help of their friends Bronte (Christina Milan) and Chris (Dan Hunt). Fishing with Gandhi received an enthusiastic reception in its screenings on the 1998 film festival circuit, including a showing at the Cleveland International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

What if the dumbest people in the room were the most talkative? I know that's generally true, but that's especially true here, where the yammering brothers have the IQ of toast and butter, respectively. There are also other characters throughout the film, all of whom are theoretically smarter, but clearly less at ease with the world.

I found it funny when I watched it with a friend and was in the mood to laugh. I'm sure that if I watched it alone, it wouldn't have been half as funny. The dialogue is wittily stupid. There is a narrative that moves the meandering forward little by little.

Oh, the synopsis is way off the mark. Brazilians are mentioned in passing, as are puppies.
