Ben Archer is not happy. His mother, Sandy, has just met a man, and it looks like things are pretty serious. Driven by a fear of abandonment, Ben tries anything and everything to ruin the "love bubble" which surrounds his mom. However, after Ben and Jack's experiences in the Indian Guides, the two become much closer.Written by

At the end of the movie, during the wedding. As Jack is asking Ben for the rings, Ben kids around and pretends to have lost them. If you look at the ring finger of Jack's left hand, he is clearly already wearing his wedding ring. See more »
Ben, what are you doing here?
I came back here to help you. What do you think?
I don't need any help.
[observing the state Jack is in]
Oh, really? Then what were you planning to do when those guys found you? Lie there and pretend to be a slug?
Exactly. Now get out of here. You're blowing my cover.
[struggling to get the tree trunk off Jack's leg]
You can't tell me what to do. You're not my father.
[with a groan]
I knew you were going to say that eventually.

During the first Indian guide meeting, Ben nicknames Jack after his pet. In initial releases he gave the name Numb Nuts for his pet squirrel. Alternately (for television) Ben gives the name Butt Head after a goat. 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.
