may or may not capture your tastes, but still a needed movie

While this movie isn't as good as the show upon which it's based, and while they should've kept the setting in the 1950s, this movie will have some kid appeal, as well as some appeal to those who used to watch the show as children. The only real problem I see with this movie is that Beaver is embarrassed to tell June and Ward that he quit the football team because he scored for the other team in his first game (likely based on a 1963 NFL game where a player mistakenly did that), as this could encourage kids to hide their problems from their parents and be deceptive in the process. That was the real reason Beaver quit. His failures in his subjects was only secondary and was really, in a way, used as a cover-up. But all was well when Beaver rejoined the team, scored the winning touchdown for HIS team, and got his bike back. What's more, when the girl who dumped Wally for another boy saw that he stole Beaver's bike, she dumped him too- and really let him have it! Moreover, Wally and Beaver made up, and even Eddie helped Beaver when he needed to. While the spirit of the show isn't completely captured, it largely is.
