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!
