[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.
Fuzzily conceived and blandly executed.
The Cleavers have come to represent the stereotype of the white-bread family.This reverent '90s remake doesn't do much to challenge it.
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.
The result is depressingly halfhearted.
Credit the makers of Leave It to Beaver for their kindliness.
Modernized take on '50s TV show, with some bullying.
Unnecessary film take on the classic TV series. Leave it.
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.
Turner is delightful
This. Is. Just. Bad.
Slight, bouncy and sweet-tempered.
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.
its safe and a family friendly film, with good comedy and great kid friendly fun.
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.
The 1997 TV adaptation movie combines countless themes and storylines from various episodes of the original series, a technique that is enjoyable and funny. The actors are great, and it is wonderful to see some of TV series' cast making cameos in this film.
