Fun 80's TV movie
3 June 2020 | by stanfunkySee all my reviews

This was a great movie as a kid, more relatable than most. If you invented something and got paid a bunch of money for it, who wouldn't do the things Max did? And to 'freub' the earlier reviewer, the name of the movie you are looking for is The B.R.A.T. Patrol. It aired the week before this one in 1986 on the Magical World of Disney. Chris Carter (of X-Files fame) was the writer and Sean Astin (LOTR, Rudy) was the star. Hope that helps!
