Father and Scout is a very funny family movie.It is about an artistic father who is to over protective of his son. He does not like him plaing sports or rough housing with his friends. One day they get invited to a weekend campout. At the campout they end up having to play different kinds of sports games. They end up losing except at the very end they find the treasure chest and save a boy and his son from falling down all the way in the hole. They get the hero medal and the dad from now on wants to take his son on adventures.

This movie is a disgrace to manhood. I cringe just thinking about this junk. The boy actor was great however; he was the manhood of this junk.

Here is a DVD production which is underrated because the real message can be missed. Some Fathers are indeed city slickers who never had the experiences outdoors that are typical of an 11-year-old Boy who has been a Tenderfoot-BSA Scout. Any Son has the desire to look to his Father - but - the hilarious theme of this production is a Father who is afraid of the dark, allergic to grass, scared of nighttime sounds - met with the protections of his Son. Due to being nervous in the outdoors Bob Saget in the role of the Father has a hit parade of jokes proliferated with bad timing. Brian Bonsall - in the role of the young Son Michael demonstrates how Father and Son can find each other to discover a good relationship. With humor there are good, behavioral, moral lessons to be learned
in a Father-and-Son weekend on a camping trip. That is the real value of this movie that a Father-and-Son relationship can find a positive new meaning.

I saw this movie as a kid many years ago and loved it- thought saget was hilarious. Funny how now I'm a father and I see how hurtful much of his humor is to his son, which took away from much of the humor. It's heart-warming, if sometimes a little cheesy, and has a good ending all around. Of course there is a little cliff-hanging event to bring everyone closer. I'd recommend it maybe, but not one I'd recommend To buy. Although, I bought it because I couldn't find it anywhere to rent or borrow!

I enjoyed this movie and especially the acting of the two protagonists. Light, predictable story but it carried me along like a marshmellow on hot chocolate

Film good quality, but storyline average. If you are a Full House fan you might enjoy watching another of Bob Saget's films.

From the reviews I read, I thought this dvd would be funnier that what it was. I wasn't really impressed with it.
