Pow Wow
22 March 2021 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Lots of sugar and spice and everything nice went into this remake of Mister Scoutmaster. But what it sorely lacks from the original was a bit of the vinegar of star Clifton Webb.

Taking Webb's place as star is Katherine Helmond who is dragooned into being a den mother for a Cub Scout troop is her boss Harry Morgan an old Boy Scout himself. She takes over a troop that gets a new member, an orphan kid who desperately wants some place to belong .

The kid is Gary Coleman at the height of his popularity so the emphasis is on Coleman and no on the adult in the film. In Mister Scoutmaster the focus was on Webb. Makes all the difference in the world.

Still this is an OK children's film. But that whole Pow-Wow thing that Harry Morgan had going was just annoying.
