Don't watch this movie unless you enjoy vomit flowing out of your mouth at an alarming rate

This movie made me sad... There are no other words to describe this movie other that "Art". The level of awful is so high that it had to deliberate. For a quick example: there is a scene in which a man has a net thrown on him, it slips off and then on screen he picks it up and puts it back on his head. Please for the love of all that is holy in this world, stay away from this movie

The Adventure Scouts were Adveturous!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Adventure Scouts movie. It was all about building friendships and overcoming the odds, when facing tough obstacles. The kids were all great in the movie and I recognized a few of the adult actors.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Simply put: There is absolutely nothing to enjoy about this movie. It isn't even a "so bad it's good"-type of B-movie. This is amateurish and lazy at every possible turn -- be it the sloppy editing, the enormous holes in the storyline, the staggering lapses in story logic, and the infinite number of cliches packed into this thing. It's unfathomable to comprehend why a cast and crew of presumably sane people would waste time and money making this awful movie.

There really is nothing redeeming about this film. If the acting isn't stilted and awkward, it's obnoxiously hammy. The attempts at comedy are beyond trite. Even the attempts at positive messages pertaining to girls being as capable of scouting out in the great outdoors as boys are eclipsed by the sheer mediocrity in every other aspect of this movie.
