Mel Gibson's "The Beaver" Poster and Full Plot Synopsis

Posted: November 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mel GibsonSubmit Comment
Summit Entertainment has released the poster and a full plot synopsis for "The Beaver" starring Mel Gibson and Jodi Foster. Check out both below, but beware, the synopsis gives away quite a bit.

Plot: Walter Black (Mel Gibson) is suffering from extreme depression. As he spends most of his days sleeping or trying different methods of self therapy, his wife Meredith (Jodie Foster) hides behind work and helplessly watches him fall apart; his youngest son Henry (Riley Thomas Stewart) becomes a hermit; his oldest son Porter (Anton Yelchin) writes his classmate's essays for cash and secretly keeps a list of similarities between him and his father to avoid a similar future; and Walter's toy company heads toward bankruptcy. Walter soon hits bottom when Meredith kicks him out of the house, and he decides to get drunk and kill himself. The suicide attempt goes awry, and upon waking up, Walter is introduced to "the Beaver" a beaver puppet he had found in the trash and put on his hand during his drinking binge who suddenly speaks to him, in a British accent. With the help of the Beaver (a facet of Walter's personality), Walter gets a new lease on life and returns home. Everything begins to work out wonderfully he reconnects with Henry through a new hobby in woodworking, the Beaver helps him to woo back Meredith, and the Beaver takes over as CEO and revives the toy company. The only holdout is Porter, who believes Walter has gone crazy and instead continues his list and works on writing a graduation speech for popular cheerleader and valedictorian Norah (Jennifer Lawrence).

Life seems to be getting better for the Black family until the Beaver takes complete control of Walter's life. He makes a public appearance on national television and eventually drives Meredith and Porter away. Hand puppets explode in popularity and the toy company thrives, but Walter begins to see that his life is no longer his own, especially without his family. When he tries to release himself from the Beaver, he realizes that the Beaver can no longer be controlled. Walter finally takes drastic measures to reclaim his life, and after building a little coffin for the Beaver, he turns the table saw onto himself. Meanwhile, Porter's own life has fallen apart; his friendship with Norah ends and his essay business is exposed and leads to his college admission getting rescinded. Porter decides to confront Walter, only to find his father in the garage, finally separated from the Beaver. Later, Walter recovers in a psychiatric hospital. Porter shows Walter the beautiful graduation speech he had written for Norah and finally voices his fears about turning into Walter and whether depression and suicide will be inevitable for him one day. Walter believes that Porter will make his own life. Porter, Meredith, and Henry soon welcome Walter home and in return, Walter sees Porter off for his road trip with Norah, leaving Walter at peace with his life and family at last.

Mel you crazy SOB! This sounds Oscar worthy! - He should wear that puppet now! As this seems to be art imitating life???

" Later, Walter recovers in a psychiatric hospital."


Sounds like what Mel Gibson really needs. A good psychiatric hospital and a "beaver". Good story line anyway. Wake up, Mel. It's only a bad dream

They actually put this crap on film???? Wow, Hollywood will truly make anything these days.
This has to be the worst synopsis......rather begining to end telling of a movie period. I want the time back that I spent reading this crap. I can only imagine what it would be to sit through 2 hours of this garbage.

Sooo hyped for this movie ever since Steve Carrel was rumored to play the part. Mel Gibson seems like a great fit.

This film has already been made, around eight videos of them that you can see free on the internet. I strongly recommend to the people who have been living in a cave or has a piece of glass stuck inside your cranial sacral.

What the hell IS this movie? Its bizarre man! I dunno if itll ever come out... Or who knows, maybe it'll be his Hollywood redemption. Or some bullsh*t.

NOT RELEVANT: I'm directing photography on an independent film based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Its called Mango Pickle (Aapko Achar) and we put together a teaser trailer with some of the early footage we shot. I'd really appreciate it if you guys checked it out and let us know what you think.

'...his wife Meredith (Jodie Foster) hides behind work and helplessly watches him fall apart...' --- that's what one gets for marrying a lesbian! Jodie... if you really wanted to cheer him up... let Mel put his hand up YOUR beaver (the puppet is just too cheap a substitute)!

'...his youngest son Henry (Riley Thomas Stewart) becomes a hermit...' --- because he has crabs!

So the big idea to save Mel's career is Turning Unhappily Ever After, sitcom from the 90s with the talking Bunny and the hot young Nikki Cox into a big budget movie with a serious spin? Whoever successfully pitched that idea deserves some kind of sales award.

That's the longest synopsis ever. It's practically a screenplay. Kinda excited about this since reading about the coffin and beaver-sawing part. So f*cking bizarre.

Is this ridiculously detailed synposis some sort of cover to get us to like Mel Gibson again? To say, oh yeah, he was just being a goofy method actor and it bled over into real life? Cuz this synopsis sounds like a f*cking Disney flick, and I don't buy it.

The only way Mel could get any cooler is if he grew back his lethal weapon mullet hair, that hair was a weapon itself, i also think the only time i've enjoyed jodie foster in a movie was when she was playing pinball with her ankles!!

I know man, it's a damn shame too. She was so smoking hot when she was younger but got steadily uglyer with each new season of Las Vegas combined with each new face surgery. She looks gross now. Poor Jay Mohr.
