PG-13 | | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
On the run from authorities, a sleazy courier poses as a scout leader on a camping trip. But he has no idea what he's in for when he has to lead a group of kids.
The film's tagline is "They wanted a great adventure. What they got was "Mad Max" Grabelski". A nod to Mad Max (1979).
We finally get to go on an overnight, and we end up at Grand Central Station.
Gordy: It's better than my backyard.
Ralph: Not by much.
When the short scout boy is on the big branch lying down, it's obviously a grown man stunt on the bird-view shots taken from far away.
When the film was first released at theaters everywhere in the United States, the film was originally rated "PG-13" by the Motion Picture Association of America because of some strong profanity (the word "fuck" is uttered only once, along with one obscured use of "shit", and several mild religious exclamations) a scene of an implied comical description of sexual innuendo, using Barbie dolls, and other crude dialogues; but the film was given a "PG" rating when the film was re-edited and re-released on VHS and released on DVD as part of the Fox Family Feature series. The "f-word" is spoken by Grabelski during the waterfall near-death experience. Despite having the film re-rated to "PG," The f-word was not dubbed in the 2001 Family Feature VHS and 2002 DVD release.
