Storyline

Two young brothers talk their strict father Lloyd Clauswell into allowing them to babysit themselves for the first time while their parents attend a corporate barbecue. As Lloyd vies for a promotion from the eccentric company president Mr. Wellington, Lloyd's nemesis Skip Larue hatches a scheme with his sultry fiancé Patsy to frame Lloyd for embezzlement by hiding stolen cash in the Clauswell home. Beginning with an argument over who is really in charge, Matt and Robbie enlist their friends and nearly destroy the house as they battle for control. But they learn the real meaning of "blood is thicker than water" when they must join forces to stop the evil plans of Skip Larue. Police detective Palladino is left to sort out this mess of who did what to whom and why, as he finds out once and for all that when two brothers are left alone, Boys Will Be Boys. Written by Gregory Poppen <poppenpix@aol.com>

Great family entertainment
21 November 1998 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is so refreshing to sit down with your kids and watch a fun, entertaining movie, one that can make adults laugh while still keeping the little ones excited. My boys loved the kids and their adventures, while the adults watching loved Randy and his co-workers. If you've worked for any corporation, everybody can identify with Lloyd's handsome but know-it-all co-worker at the party.
