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.

If all of this sounds ridiculous, it is.

Could've spared me the introduction

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
Christopher Null

Too dumb for adults, too bad-habit-inducing for children.
| Original Score: 2/5

This is the type of movie so desperate for fun it tries to bully you into it.
David Keyes
January 1, 2000
One of the worst movies that has ever been conceived. I loathed and despised absolutely every pathetic second of it.

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.
