Dudley Do-Right

A surprisingly amiable film, adapted from Jay Ward's animated classic about the famous Royal Canadian Mountee. Dudley Do-Right, a clumsy yet good-natured man, who always dreamed of being a Mountee is confronted with a challenge. Villain, Snidely Whiplash, stole the town of "Semi-Happy Valley", renamed it and is attracting a huge mass of people to it by planting quantities of gold in the river. Of course, Snidely will profit off the deal since he owns the food joints, the gift shops, the restaurants, etc. Dudley Do-Right knows there is something wrong about this, but what Snidely is doing isn't illegal. The plot of the movie isn't put together well at all, a major disappointment, but there are uproars of sheer delight in this flick. The acting is actually commendable, featuring Brendan Frasier, star of George of the Jungle, Sarah Jessica Parker, a very able actress and Eric Idle, loony Monty Python alumni. Good jokes, and a family oriented premise makes this a great movie for the kids. Unfortunately it lacks what is needed to become a family classic.
