The Cleaver Family makes the jump from the small black and white screen to color and Panavision in this updated version of the classic TV sit-com. Eight-year-old Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (Cameron Finley) is a good natured kid with a habit of getting in trouble; he's not bad, mind you, just a bit absent-minded. Beaver lives with his 12-year-old brother Wally (Erik Von Detten), his father Ward (Christopher McDonald), and his mother June (Janine Turner) in a small town in Ohio. Beaver wants a new bicycle more than anything, but his father wishes that he had more of an interest in team sports; someone suggests to Beaver that if he joined the school's football team, Ward might be impressed enough to buy him the bike. Beaver signs up, but his skills on the gridiron fall somewhere between slim and none, and the experience proves more than a bit embarrassing for both Beaver and Ward. Before long, Beaver has quit the team, but he tries to hide this fact from his father. Beaver does get his bike -- but he doesn't get to do much with it before it's stolen by a bigger kid in the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Wally's best friend, the mildly sleazy Eddie Haskell (Adam Zolotin), has fallen for a cute girl at school, Karen (Erika Christensen), and wants Wally to help him impress her; however, Karen seems to like Wally more than Eddie. This puts Wally in dutch with his best friend, and Wally feels even worse when he and Karen begin to quarrel. Ken Osmond, who played Eddie Haskell on the original TV series, plays Eddie's father here, and Barbara Billingsley, the original June Cleaver, appears as Aunt Martha.

This movie is great for all children, and does well with remaking a classic sitcom into a 90's film. The changes made from the original to the newer version are believable, yet Beaver stays the same. Eddie is still as sleazy as ever and the plot fits the era. No movie remake could ever meet up to the quality of Leave it to Beaver (the sitcom) but I, a young fan of the show, argue it is one of the best kid's movie of the late 1990's.

I never really watched the tv show Leave it to beaver but the movie is cool I'ts a remake Now it's the year of 1997 Wally is a nice kid and the Beaver is too well except getting into trouble Eddie is the sleazy trouble maker but he's pretty cool Wally goes out with Karen a very pretty girl Even Eddie likes her This is a great movie and what makes it even bettter is how I'ts not like the 50's I'ts more like the 90's
