Storyline

After a backfiring stunt and a mishap-filled New Year's Eve 1999, klutzy and legendary stuntman Super Dave Osborne decides to hang up the crash helmet and retire. Coupled with financial problems, a double-crossing protégé' named D.J., and slimy promoter and arch-nemesis Gil Ruston, things do not look good for the super one. However, he meets klutzy mother Sandy and her son Timmy, who has a heart condition, who he immediately takes a shine to. When D.J.'s taunting prompts Timmy to attempt to jump a ramp with his bicycle (and fail), he aggravates his heart condition and requires an operation, forcing Super Dave to accept an offer from Ruston to do a stunt to get the necessary money for Timmy's operation.

Nostalgia for Super Dave fans
4 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This unspectacular movie will mean little for those that never watched Super Dave's show from the 80's. Super Dave's show in the 80's was largely filmed in Toronto, my home town and it's always fun to be able to recognize scenes on the screen that you're been to or at least know about.

This predictable movie reassembles the main cast from the show. It's nice to see them aging well and having a new gig. Seeing them altogether brings back memories of perhaps a better time that we can all personally associate with.

Personal overtones make this movie special to the old Super Dave Fans for reasons other than its content. Give it a try....
