Chicago Sun-Times - 08/22/1997
"...LEAVE IT TO BEAVER is a gentle, good-hearted movie....The film is disarmingly charming..."
The juvenile miscreant of TV's golden era makes his jump to the big screen intact, along with too-perfect big brother Wally, scheming Eddie Haskell, sage dad Ward, and cookie-baking mom June. Minor touches bring the Cleavers into the 1990s (a racially diverse classroom, personal computers), but the Beav still just makes a mess of things despite his best intentions. Here, he joins the football team to please Dad (and get a brand new bike), leading to humiliation and slapstick chaos.
