Dudley Do-Right Reviews
DD "Dorris Day"
"That's not fair! They've got Rocks! All we have is machine guns."
I think if this film fails it is because Dudley is not well done as far as presenting him or others as a Canadian Mounty or Dudley's girl friend is not well done in the acting. The Native Americans were presented as an insult rather than jokes that did not miss represent there characters culture.
I do think that Snidely Whiplash was the best developed and portrayed character through out the film.
I have this DVD!
The film introduces the three main characters from childhood then at adulthood. Dudley is a goofy, sincere, clumsy Mountie - fulfilling his childhood's destiny.
He has a friend named Nell whom he comes to love even though she takes up with his enemy (formerly his childhood friend). The evil friend succeeds in his schemes until Dudley is fired as a Mountie and forced to beat his foe at his own games (Dudley meets a man who mentors him - in the tradition of Karate Kid and similar films). The Mounties come to his aid and the natives as they are attacked by the enemy and his gang. Sarah Jessica Parker is surprising at times, even appealing, as Nell. 6/10
