[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.

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.

It doesn't quite work, but some of Leave it to Beaver is a gentle little time-waster that will probably please young children and evoke some nostalgia in their parents . . . er, grandparents.

Credit the makers of Leave It to Beaver for their kindliness.
