Cameos can't save this blunder of a film
25 May 1999 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I tried to think of something nice about this film but I couldn't, so I'll just rant instead. The many cameos in this movie (Weird Al Yankovic, Leslie Nielsen, John Walsh, etc.) prove that Disney has way too much money to spend on crap films such as this. This film is about an accident prone boy named Scout Bozell (who names their kid Scout?) who's only desire in life is to become a "safety" (member of the safety patrol). I could spend my time writing a detail plot synopsis, but I really don't want to seeing how I already wasted too much time even watching this film. So I'll make it short. Scout becomes a member of safety patrol, changes schools, feuds with bad guys, makes new friends, gets new safety patrol, loses friends, gets set up by bad guys, cries, gets old friends back, exposes bad guys, and gets girl, who is a 6th grader dressed up to resemble, and I'm sorry, a cheap whore. Within this movie is poor writing, even worse acting, and a lot of cameos by stars with too much time on their hands. This film is terrible, horrible, awful, and bad. I think the only reason I watched it is because I wanted to see if anything could have made it suck less. Really all I accomplished was wasting a couple hours when I should have been sleeping. I'd recommend that if you're channel surfing and you happen to see that "Safety Patrol" is on, turn off your television sets and go play outside. Don't put yourself through the self-inflicted torture that I did. You'll never be able to see Disney in the same light again. There is absolutely nothing good you can say about this don't try.
