Kids' adventure with Daniel Stern
26 March 2015 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

Released in 1995, "Bushwhacked" is a kids' adventure movie starring Daniel Stern as a delivery man who's falsely accused of murder. He avoids capture by impersonating a scout leader and leading a group of adolescents on an amusing frolic in the wilderness.

While this is a kids-oriented movie, it tries to be "edgy" rather than Disney-like family fluff (not that there's anything wrong with that). For instance, Stern's character attempts to explain the "birds and the bees" to the kids using Barbie & Ken dolls and there's a scene of the kids urinating over a cliff and, unbeknownst to them, on the antagonist. Despite these few sequences, the movie's harmless and it's mostly just an amusing trek through the forest with the expected problems of having a fake scout leader. I've never seen Stern in a movie before, but he's so over-the-top here that he constantly looks like he's on the verge of a coronary, not that it necessarily mars the movie; actually it fits.

My mediocre rating is for adult viewers; for kids it gets a solid "B" grade.

The film runs 90 minutes and was shot in Alta, Lake Tahoe, Placerville and Los Angeles, California.

GRADE: C+
