Trivia

The film's teaser trailer is a spoof of the one for Cliffhanger (1993). Special effects supervisor John Richardson also worked on both films. See more »

Goofs

Max relies upon Barnhill's assertion that that he climbed Kilimanjaro to prove that he knows how to use rock climbing equipment. It is possible to hike to the top of Kilimanjaro without doing any technical rock climbing. See more »

Quotes

Gordy: My mom says the guy who's taking us has hiked all over the world.
Barnhill: I'm sure he won't be half as good as the guy me and my dad had on our trip to the Serengeti.
Ralph: Barnhill, if you're dad is so friggin' cool, then why isn't he our scout leader?
Barnhill: Oh yeah. Spies have a lot of time for the scouts.

Mmmm...I love it
8 October 2002 | by (Nesconset, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely amazing. Ever since I saw it in the theater in 1995, I was in love with it. I missed my opportunity to buy the video when it first came out, and made up for it when it was re-released, recently. This funny movie about a group of scouts, who kinda-get-kidnapped-but-not-really is sure to keep the whole fam laughing. Gotta love Daniel Stern, aka SPIDER! Simply, go RENT IT!
