'90s live-action remake of '60s cartoon has iffy humor.

Surprisingly pleasant.

The fanciful associations and bad jokes are more often stupid than silly, making all the spectacle and contrived dance numbers seem a colossal waste.

Why in the wide, wide, world of sports would anybody make a big-budget feature film from a decades-old, animated cartoon parody of Nelson Eddy/Jeanette MacDonald movies?

One of the summer's more pleasant surprises.

Brendan gets hit in the face a lot, that's good for a few laughs but you've already seen it in the trailer.

Dudley is merely a dud.

Barely gets a plus for comedy, but Brendan Fraser is always fun to see.

There's not one joke, one slapstick moment, one innuendo that's funny.

Laura Reiley

Pacing is slow in this comedy, as if actors are waiting -- along with the weary kids and adults in the audience -- for anyone to say something funny. We're still waiting.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

Though occasionally producing a minor chuckle, Dudley Do-Right is mainly characterized by good artists making bad choices.

Though it hurts to think unkind thoughts about the square-shooting Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman who is passionate about right and wrong, in reality casting Fraser as Dudley turns out to be too much of a good thing, a case of Blank Look Overkill.

You're obviously supposed to root for Dudley to triumph, but his character remains nothing more than a clumsy, accident-prone doofus.

When will Hollywood learn that successful animated concepts just don't cut it when translated to flesh-and blood life?
