Synopsis

This slapstick comedy is based on the Jay Ward cartoon, which lampooned the square-jawed heroes vs. the mustache-twirling villains of old-time melodramas. The live-action version has our true-blue Canadian Mountie up against Snidely Whiplash, who’s bent on taking over the local community by making everyone believe he’s the good guy, and Dudley is the scoundrel.

Dove Review

Modern references and Fraser’s uninspired performance, along with countless hackneyed floorboards-in-the face bits make this a cheesy and largely unfunny rip-off of a fairly cleaver TV-cartoon.

Content Description

Contains slapstick humor, including flatulence jokes and Dudley being pounded by rocks, which seemed to get the biggest laugh from children at the screening; there are two expletives, comic action violence, and brief mild innuendo.
