It's not easy being Beaver Cleaver - as this laugh-filled update of the classic television series Leave it to Beaver shows. The rest of the Cleaver family may be models of good behavior, but not The Beaver (Cameron Finley), an ordinary kid with an extraordinary talent for trouble. This time, all The Beaver wants to do is prove that he's just as perfect as his totally cool, older brother, Wally (Erik von Detten). And where does it get him? In the biggest mess of his life! Co-starring Christopher McDonald, Janine Turner, and with cameos featuring the original June Cleaver (Barbara Billingsley) and Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond), this energetic, engaging comedy is truly a film the whole family will enjoy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Leave It to Beaver is a modernized version of the classic TV show and includes some mild bullying. Beaver gets his bike stolen, and the bullies taunt him. There's some tween kissing and flirting going on as Wally experiences the excitement and heartbreak of a first love. Expect a bit of name-calling and a few words like "crap."
