Storyline

THE JUNIOR DEFENDERS is a fast-paced, quirky, cult-style comedy about the cast of a fictional 1970s hit television show. With a fan base that rivals Star Trek's, "The Junior Defenders" is one of the top TV hits of the late 1970s. Every kid in America dreams of being one of the show's crime-fighting kid superheroes. Twenty-five years after the show's sudden cancellation, a crazed fan named Norman Nields is still obsessed with the show. In his mania, Norman goes on a mission to travel across the country in a stolen Winnebago, kidnapping the four washed-up former child stars from his beloved childhood program. The kidnappings spark a national media frenzy. Once in Hollywood, Norman takes over a soundstage and forces the cast at gunpoint to act in his brand-new episode of "The Junior Defenders".

Good Film
15 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Writer-director Keith Spiegel's debut feature film The Junior Defenders is an amusing mockumentary about former childhood stars of a fictional TV show.

There's celebrity cameos galore, the best being that of narrator and cult filmmaker legend John Waters. How does that guy stay so svelte? Must be getting his protein.

There are uneven elements in the film, it has it's imperfections. But you can tell this is a labor of lust or love for the filmmakers. Even Kubrick's first flick had it's flaws, daddy-o.

But the flick has a hipster feel to it, like it was made for those who seriously dig off the wall cinema and weird ass quirky offbeat films.

Overall? Worth checking out.
