Audience Reviews for Leave It to Beaver

    Leave it to Beaver is a painful family oriented comedy that is dreadful from start to finish. I felt that the film was poorly constructed, and did not withstand multiple viewings. I find that there are better family films out there than this, and this one just doesn't cut it. The acting is horrible, the script is bad and this is one awful, forgettable film that you should avoid. This is a failed attempt at bringing the classic TV show to the screen. I found nothing entertaining about this film, and nothing worked. For me, this film was just an awful mess, one that should never have been made. This is a lame excuse for a family oriented comedy, and it simply plays out on all the usual clichés that you'd expect from the genre. Even with a script rewrite, I don't think this film would have been watchable. Leave it Beaver fails on all fronts, and everyone involved in this mess should be ashamed. I thought this was too simplistic to enjoy, while most family comedies have a bit more substance, this film lacked that big time. This film failed at delivering anything really entertaining and fun. A pointless film that never should have seen the light of day, Leave it to Beaver is a film that misses the mark due to a bad script, and a painful cast. I hated this film, and it's one of those films that really is forgettable. A film that never should have been made, this is one of the worst family oriented comedies that I have seen.

    Though it might be appropiate for children, and kids would be intrigued, normal moviegoers, or even parents will find it as an unnessacary remake of a classic television show, that's mainly an embaressment.

    This movie was dogged but I always liked it. Watched it the other day (VHS) and was crackin' up muthatrucka haha, at least for the first half of the movie. Christopher "Shooter McGavin" McDonald is an underrated actor, he's great.
