Another live action bomb from Disney
2 August 2000 | by coverme6See all my reviews

Just like "The Big Green" and "Honey, I Shrunk Ourselves,"

"Meet the Deedles" can be checked under the list of Disney's lousiest live action flicks! I mean, come on, who really wants to see two bonehead surfers who land in Yellowstone Park

just to catch some waves? Huh??! How can anyone be that dumb? The chemistry between the two leads (Paul Walker and Steve Van Wormer) kind of reminded me of the relationship between Bill and Ted from those old "Bill and Ted" flicks; all crude and

no IQ! Dennis Hopper is terribly wasted in this flick, which he plays a deranged ex-ranger park ranger.
