Modernized take on '50s TV show, with some bullying.

Unnecessary film take on the classic TV series. Leave it.

[The] dead-on imitations of some of the characters from the television series created by Bob Mosher and Joe Connelly will seem pointlessly stylized to viewers unfamiliar with the old sitcom.

All but the most easily pleased kids will be bored as can be, and anyone who has fond memories of TV's Leave It to Beaver would probably rather not besmirch them.

The Cleavers have come to represent the stereotype of the white-bread family.This reverent '90s remake doesn't do much to challenge it.

This Leave it to Beaver is unabashedly 90s in a fairly depressing way: it takes paternal incompetence as a given.

I wouldn't say this movie is actually harmful, but skipping it is probably the wisest policy.

Leave It to Beaver just stumbles about in a bland, irony-deprived suburbia that denies the movie any juice or bite and renders the Cleaver family even duller than it was.

Leave It to Beaver is the sort of movie that could be described as good clean fun if it happened to be good or fun.

Why? That's the question foremost in my mind when I consider this latest motion picture retread of a defunct television series. Why was this movie made in the first place?

Schmalzy and trite, it relies heavily on the goodwill and nostalgia.
