Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker and Alfred Molina star in the hilarious adventures of the young, accident-prone Royal Canadian Mountie known as Dudley Do-Right. Dastardly Snidely Whiplash (Molina) launches a fake gold rush as part of his devious plan to take over the world. Thousands of would-be millionaires stream over the border and into town, and, as a result, bumbling Dudley (Fraser) loses his job. Stripped of his badge, his office and his ladylove, our mild-mannered (and somewhat dim-witted) hero sets out on a mission to defeat the villain, win the heart of the fair maiden and bring peace back to the Semi-Happy Valley.

'90s live-action remake of '60s cartoon has iffy humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dudley Do-Right is the 1999 live-action movie starring Brendan Fraser as the beloved Canadian Mountie from the classic 1960s cartoon. While, like the cartoon, there are lots of puns and slapstick, there's also some humor that could be inappropriate for younger kids. For instance, a pigeon lands on Snidely Whiplash's head and defecates; also, a recurring joke shows Dudley Do-Right's horse audibly passing gas. Aside from this, there is some drinking -- one of the main characters acts very drunk then is shown waking up the next morning moving slowly, moaning, and complaining about his hangover. There is also cartoonish violence with guns and cannons.
