Kill all Deedles on sight in order to save the human race.
26 March 2015 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

"Meet the Deedles" is the ultimate groovy 90's filmography dude! Well, not really. It's one of those movies that wants to be like "Wayne's World" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" so bad that it becomes like a fossil in cinematic history. The film might have had an audience once, but those were all 11 to 17 year old boys growing up in the 1990's and have since grown up. Just look at the cover of that VHS tape, and you'll immediately know that this is going to be irritating and not the list bit funny. It's as ridiculous and stupid as you can expect from a title like "Meet the Deedles".

It's about two surf-loving free spirits that reject authority, Phil Deedle (Paul Walker) and his brother Stew Deedle (Steve Van Wormer). After being kicked out of school for what they perceive as being "Too Cool", they are sent to a boot camp to be straightened out. Instead, their vehicle takes a wrong turn and they end up In Yellowstone National Park! From there you can see where everything is going to go. They meet the authority figure of the park, they run around him while he screams impotently. If this movie follows formula, they're going to screw up something big, like destroy Old Faithful, but prove to everyone that with surfing and the power of being an awesome slacker with no real responsibilities, you can make everything go right in the end. Tell me when my prediction turns out to be off.

Looking back at this movie fills me with shame. I was the target audience for this film when it came out. I was 11 years old in 1998 and you bet if I had seen the film at that time, I would have thought it would have been hilarious! Thankfully, I've grown up. Nowadays I empathize more with the people who want to destroy these fools than the surfers themselves. It's almost funny in an ironic way, like watching a map of the earth as the center of the universe, and a flat earth at that! The difference is that this movie lasts 93 minutes and looking back and laughing at our ancestors, that takes just a few moments. Without any brains, Interesting twists on the formula and a fair bit of annoying moments, "Meet the Deedles" is best left forgotten. (On VHS January 31, 2012)
