Storyline Heading

Teen Hawaiian-surfing dude twins Phil and Stew Deedle (PAUL WALKER & STEVE VAN WORMER) get mistaken for Park Ranger recruits and launch into extreme action to save Yellowstone Park from pesky prairie dogs and a vengeful ex-Park Ranger, Frank Slater (DENNIS HOPPER), who is obsessed with stealing Old Faithful before its billionth birthday celebration.

.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - Meet the Deedles is a painfully stupid action-comedy aimed entirely at middle-schoolers. Pre-teenagers may laugh at the slapstick humor and bodily function gags, but adults will just find it embarrassing. Not appropriate for young children, despite the Disney name, and an annoying bore for their parents.

Critic's Review Heading
Terrible
Walt Disney and his heirs spent over half a century turning the Disney name into the gold standard for charming family entertainment. In only a handful of months, the clown princes currently running the Magic Kingdom appear to have made it their mission to make the name an indicator of pure garbage. The annual animated feature aside, Uncle Walt's factory has taken to churning out insulting, embarrassing live-action features which stink like the flatulence they so often feature: 101 Dalmatians, That Darn Cat, Rocket Man, Mr. Magoo, and now Meet the Deedles.
