Fear of abandonment drives Ben to try anything and everything to ruin the "love bubble" that surrounds his mom and the guy, Jack.

The only Chevy Chase movie of the 90s to open at #1. See more »
When Jack supposedly trips on the skateboard, you can see that Chevy puts his leg out much further than usual. Clearly the incident was staged. See more »

That means you too, Ben.
No way. I'm staying here with you.
You're not staying with me.
But I can help.
You can be more help by making sure the others get down okay. Now go on. Get out of here. I mean it.
[Ben starts to follow the others]
[Ben turns around]
Thanks anyway. I appreciate it.
[Ben nods and walks away]

No bees were harmed during the making of this film. All bee action was supervised by Dr. Norman E. Gary, entomologist. See more »
In the scene where Jack is on the cot and it breaks, he says "This sucks," but when the movie was aired on the Disney Channel, he says, "This stinks." See more »
Some events are just so ironic that they just seem too weird to be true. One of the best examples, at least in my opinion, is what happened to Chevy Chase. You see, in the '80s he was one of the top stars, with movies like "Vacation" and "Fletch". Now, he was not friends with the president during that period, nor with the next president, but he was friends with Bill Clinton. That's where it gets bizarre: a few months after Slick Willie took the oath of office, Chase got his own TV show...and it failed miserably, turning Chase into a laughingstock. In short, Chevy Chase went from a star under his enemies to a joke under his friend.
To compound this, the show's failure was followed by embarrassing movies like "Cops and Robbersons" and "Man of the House". I will say that the latter isn't god-awful, but it's not really worth much. Mostly just another story about a son and stepfather trying to bond. If nothing else, I guess that it just seems sad that Chase went from "SNL" to this (maybe it's also the flick's status as a Disney movie). But really, Chase has done better than this, as have Farrah Fawcett and George Wendt. Don't make it your first choice.
