Pete's friends were way too stupid. These idiots chose to go on a day and a half hike(way unprepared). All of them could see that Pete clearly had mental issues, but chose to stay and help him out. When me and my male friends(we're the same age as the actors here) go camping, we don't no where near like that. It make no sense at all to walk a day and a half to a spot when you're there just for a weekend.
You couldn't pay me to tell you that any of these guys were friends.
