If all of this sounds ridiculous, it is.

Pure Disney in the goofy early-60's sense.

I am prepared to imagine a theater full of 11-year-old boys who might enjoy this movie, but I can't recommend it for anyone who might have climbed a little higher on the evolutionary ladder.

Dumb is one thing, but this sorry attempt at action-comedy from stuntman turned director Steve Boyum is in an intelligence-deprived class all its own.

Audience Reviews for Meet the Deedles

A movie of epicly stupid proportions. It is a huge rip off of Dumb and Dumber, but I think it was due to the fact that Paul Walker and his brother in the movie are really mentally challenged. While it is almost so bad it's funny, it's just way too annoying to like.

Conner Rainwater

Super Reviewer

Absolutely terrible. The acting is bad, the plot is bad, the movie is bad. It is way too long and I stopped paying attention to it half way through.
