Synopsis

“Ward, I’m a little worried about The Beaver …”
With this all-too-familiar refrain, June would signal Ward that young Theodore, a.k.a. “The Beaver,” was once again about to transport the viewing audience into a wonderfully wacky world via the logic of innocent childhood. They could only hope that older brother Wally wasn’t somehow involved as an often unwitting accomplice. Thirty-four years after the final episode first aired on national television, the refrain_and the story_are pretty much the same, thankfully, but the filmmakers undertaking a new bigscreen version of Leave It to Beaver were not without their challenges.

Dove Review

Like the 50s TV series, both the boys and the Beav’s Dad learn life lessons. The film maintains the same style of the old family classic, but lacks the charm. Pleasant enough if you are between 6 and 8. Attending parents – go to a theatre with big comfortable seats, made especially for concerned but sleepy Moms and Dads.

Content Description

1 crude brotherly putdown and a couple mild expletives, but no harsh or profane language; 12-year-olds play a game of spin the bottle; we see a first kiss - tastefully handled
