Based on the 60's-era cartoon of the same name. Royal Canadian Mountie Dudley Do-right is busy keeping the peace in his small mountain town when his old rival, Snidely Whiplash, comes up with a plot to buy all the property in town, then start a phony gold rush by seeding the river with nuggets. Can this well-meaning (though completely incompetent) Mountie stop Whiplash's evil plan? Written by

I liked "George of the Jungle" so I was looking forward to the movie version of the "Dudley Do-Right" cartoon. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Although from seeing previews, I was ready to be disappointed. The movie presents a very loose adaptation of the original cartoon. I don't really mind some of it, but I didn't really agree with the liberties taken with historical context. The original cartoon was set "at the close of the 19th century." So I had something of a problem with Dudley driving an SUV and using a cell phone. But I did enjoy the slapstick, which keeps in pattern with "George of the Jungle." And while Brendan Fraser as Dudley Do-Right and Sarah Jessica Parker as Nell Fenwick don't quite hit their marks, Alfred Molina makes a perfect Snidely Whiplash. So for all its faults, "Dudley Do-Right" is still worth a look, and a laugh.
