Storyline

THE JUNIOR DEFENDERS is a fast-paced, quirky, cult-style comedy about the cast of a fictional 1970s hit television show. With a fan base that rivals Star Trek's, "The Junior Defenders" is one of the top TV hits of the late 1970s. Every kid in America dreams of being one of the show's crime-fighting kid superheroes. Twenty-five years after the show's sudden cancellation, a crazed fan named Norman Nields is still obsessed with the show. In his mania, Norman goes on a mission to travel across the country in a stolen Winnebago, kidnapping the four washed-up former child stars from his beloved childhood program. The kidnappings spark a national media frenzy. Once in Hollywood, Norman takes over a soundstage and forces the cast at gunpoint to act in his brand-new episode of "The Junior Defenders".

Cinematic Reinterpretation of the Uncertainty Principle is Awful
1 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This should have been a much shorter movie-- thirty seconds at most. Seriously, a few of the hundreds of visual gags work, and they probably add up to thirty ticks or less. They were going for the self-referential post-pop-populist de-deconstructionist sorta thing, but they failed horribly. It's obviously the audience's fault, though: the filmmakers, actors and everyone else involved were too cool for us, so their endless attempts at intentional humor go way over our heads, and the same terminal hipness also rules out any chance of us flyover types finding even a smidgen of unintentional humor in this eighty-one-and-a-half-minute-too-long epic.

What was Ally Sheedy thinking? Did she formulate any coherent thoughts at any time during the making of this movie?

And those superhero suits on the adult actors Are. Just. Wrong.

On a positive note, Peter Tork seems to be aging quite gracefully.

And-- this might be Pauly Shore's best movie.
