Storyline

Gunther Wheeler, fourteen, a city tough-guy from New York moves to a small town called Pleasant Valley. Gunther isn't making very many friends in his new town. Until he meets Allison Robbins a beautiful blond girl his age, the girl of his dreams. Gunther is anxious to score on Allison by taking her out on a date. When Chad, Luke, and Wylie, a couple of neighborhood bullies give Gunther a chance to see Screamin' Banchees, an awesome band, but the tickets for the concert are $150. Gunther doesn't have that kind of money. So the only way for him to get the money is to work as a paperboy with Charlie, Gus, Henry, and Fish which is known as the "nerd herd." Written by Sam

Goofs

In the scene where the boys are siphoning gas out of the bully's car, there is a shot of the three bullies coming out of the front door of the house. One of them slips on the steps, but the camera cuts to another shot just before we would have seen what was going to be a MAJOR landing on his rear. See more »

Excellent Movie..fun for all ages
11 August 2001 | by (Northeastern Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

My family loves the Paper Brigade! We search the TV listing each week for the Disney movie to see if it is on! From the 3 year old to my 37 year old husband, this movie is loved by all of us! It is such a super movie with an excellent cast! How can you not fall in love with the character of Gunther and feel so helpless and hopeless for him in his quest to gain the respect of his customers, summer spending money, and the attention of a beautiful girl! Robert Englund also plays a wonderful character in the movie as Crazy Man Cooper! A must see movie for all ages! Two thumbs up! 10 star!!
