Without a Paddle is adventurous comedy film about three men going on the adventure of a lifetime. Three friends Jerry (Matthew Lillard), Dan (Seth Green), and Tom (Dax Shepard) get together for one of their friends' funeral after ten years of not seeing each other. They are reminiscing, when they discover a map where an airplane hijacker had stolen money, had jumped over the mountains never to be seen again.

To honor their friend's life, the three take off to find the money. However, none of them prepare for the adventure. They forget food, get chased by a bear, and end up sleeping in a tree. They discover that the bear put a big hole in the map. They attempt to make sense of the map and end up going over a waterfall, losing everything.

Deciding to wing it with just a compass, the trio stumble upon a marijuana field and two brutal farmers, Dennis (Abraham Benrubi) and Elwood (Ethan Suplee). Thinking they are there to steal the crop, Dennis and Elwood hunt and track the trio throughout the woods. Dan, Jerry, and Tom stumble upon a massive tree, that is the home of two girls, Flower (Rachel Blanchard) and Butterfly (Christina Moore). Finding out that they have a radio, Jerry uses it. This brings the farmers right to the tree.

The guys escape through the rain only to be caught by a mountain man, Del (Burt Reynolds) shivering and huddling together with barely any clothes on in a cave. Del takes them to his home and gives them clothes and food. The farmers find them again at the home and escape again while Del keeps them at bay with his gun.

The trio fall in a cave in and discover the hikacker's bones and burned money. The farmers find them again and they finally defeat them when a tree falls on them. All of the guys go back to their lives with a better view on life.
