A Kid's Review on January 10, 2003
Format: DVD
Daniel Stern plays Max Grabelski, a cheap delivery-guy who is framed for murder. He tries to find the man who framed him in Devil's Peak. Although there is a catch; in order to avoid trouble, he has to pretend to be a scout leader who leads kids to Devil's Peak. As he leads the kids into the woods, the laughs begin as Stern is attacked by a bear, plays with a beehive, discusses the birds and the bees and other wild adventures that make this movie an A+!

Upon watching this, one has to ask themselves how this film compares to other standard Hollywood comedies. How does it compare? Very well indeed. The average comedy these days isn't as funny as this movie is. This movie is very creative and witty. This movie was so well cast and the characters are perfect for the film. Daniel Stern was hilarious as Max Grebelski and the scout troop was brilliant.
Aside from Stern, the scout troop makes the film a remarkable comedy. They work well together and have great chemistry. Ari Greenberg and Janna Michaels were my favorite scout troop characters. Ari played his role perfectly and Janna lights up the screen-she's a fantastic actress and should be in more films.
All in all, this film is a feel good comedy with great mountain scenery and is worth taking a look at.

Max Grabelski (Daniel Stern in full-on Home Alone mode) is a sleazy delivery man perpetually stuck in a 1970's time-warp (puh-lease tell me where I can get one of those shirts). He struts his way down the street to Bee Gees tunes and behaves like Disco Stu from The Simpsons. He's got a little con going on after working hours in which he delivers clandestine packages to some rich guy (a weak Anthony Heald) for big tips. He needs escapism and the mystery of the con makes him feel like a spy. Until that is, when Max is framed for murder and has to run for his life.

While trying to intercept the last in the series of suspicious packages (located in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest) in order to clear his name, Max is mistaken for a world famous Scout Leader and has to lead a bunch of adventure-hungry kids into the wilderness and shake off the pursuing FBI.

Daniel Stern's physical comedy is just plain hilarious and his comic timing is perfect. For anyone who liked him in Home Alone 1 and 2 you'll love him in this also. The kids are surprisingly not that annoying. Usually I hate kids in movies (Jurassic Park, Hook, The awful Von Trapp children) but they had enough character and laughs among them to make it okay.

I only ever had a problem with the ending. It was just too tame for a PG-13 rated movie. Instead of Gordy's far-fetched fall into the ravine I would have preferred that the entire balcony of the cabin to collapse and the bad guy fall to his death. Plus the bad guy is kind of weak, his accent is just plain odd and he has this strange sort of campness and not scariness about him. Too bad since Anthony Heald has played some true scumbags in his time.

I watched this movie for the first time in the theaters in 1995, as soon as it came out on tape, it was very hard to find although I wanted it. I copied one from the video rental store, and have watched it soo many times that the quality is getting poor. The movie was wonderful and I reccomend it to all who are looking for a good laugh! It's a great movie to buy for kids or adults, so check it out! :)

If I were to compare this movie to any other movie it would be to the more recent "Without A Paddle." Although the plots are quite different, both involve a wacky portrayal of camping in the wilderness... so wacky as to seem almost completely random or incoherent in terms of how people actually deal with real outdoor situations. Both movies are ridiculous in this regards, but they are comedies and so it's possible, although at times difficult, to forgive their extravagence in this regards. What holds the movies together are the characters, plots, and, most of all, the humor. "Bushwacked" wins out over "Without A Paddle" in the humor department. There are several routines that are over-the-top (almost reminiscent of something you might see in a "South Park" episode), and which might be considered inappropriate by some since child actors are involved, but I say to heck with the prudes. "Bushwacked" is a fun movie with lots of good gags and very nearly worth each and every one of the four stars I rated it at!

Released in 1995, “Bushwhacked” is a kids’ adventure movie starring Daniel Stern as a delivery man who’s falsely accused of murder. He avoids capture by impersonating a scout leader and leading a group of adolescents on an amusing frolic in the wilderness.

While this is a kids-oriented movie, it tries to be “edgy” rather than Disney-like family fluff (not that there’s anything wrong with that). For instance, Stern’s character attempts to explain the “birds and the bees” to the kids using Barbie & Ken dolls and there’s a scene of the kids urinating over a cliff and, unbeknownst to them, on the antagonist. Despite these few sequences, the movie’s harmless and it’s mostly just an amusing trek through the forest with the expected problems of having a fake scout leader. I’ve never seen Stern in a movie before, but he’s so over-the-top here that he constantly looks like he’s on the verge of a coronary, not that it necessarily mars the movie; actually it fits.

My mediocre rating is for adult viewers; for kids it gets a solid “B” grade.

The film runs 90 minutes and was shot in Alta, Lake Tahoe, Placerville and Los Angeles, California.

GRADE: C+
