Movie Info

Hawaiian surfer dudes Stew (Steve Van Wormer) and Phil Deedle (Paul Walker), fraternal twins, are about to be expelled from school, so their wealthy and concerned father (Eric Braeden) offers summer camp in Wyoming as a solution. Arriving in Jackson Hole with their wet suits, the Deedle twins are like fish out of water, and a series of accidents put them in a hospital. Mistaken for new recruits by Yellowstone Park ranger Capt. Pine (Douglas Ashton), the duo go along with the error after meeting

If all of this sounds ridiculous, it is.

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.

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

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.

As I have said in the past, I have barely been able to contain my excitement in the recent avalanche of quality Disney fare. Not.

Hello, Deedles. Terrible to meet you.

Will adults enjoy this film? Some might be amused by the crazy situations and verbal and visual outrageousness--though they probably won't admit it.

The film is peppered with political jokes, bikini-clad babes, and fart gags, as if it couldn't decide what audience it's aiming at.

Steve Van Wormer and Paul Walker, as Stew and Phil, give lifeless performances. The only actor in the movie with any demonstrable talent is a cute little prairie dog named Petey.

Exercise your consumer power. Don't rent this trash.

You'll have much better luck finding a good spot to surf in Wyoming than finding entertainment in Meet the Deedles.

If Disney execs are interested in salvaging what remains of the studio's reputation -- and its dignity -- they might stop for just one moment to think about what Uncle Walt might say.

This movie is awful... but it was never even remotely close to being funny. Or good. Or even indifferent.

One of the worst movies that has ever been conceived. I loathed and despised absolutely every pathetic second of it.

There's an awful lot of dead time in this picture, and while it's a bit too sweet and innocent to utterly despise, there's nothing there to really like.

Too dumb for adults, too bad-habit-inducing for children.

OK, this recycling thing has gotten way out of hand. Paper and aluminum products are one thing, but rehashing old movie ideas isn't going to help the environment in any way.

This is the type of movie so desperate for fun it tries to bully you into it.

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.

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.
