Medfield College science major Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell) and his classmates have been working on a new vitamin compound when a lab accident creates a supercharged mix that ends up in Dexter's cereal box! After breakfast the next morning, Dexter is transformed, possessing a superhuman strength that levels lampposts and destroys doorknobs. The powerful formula comes to the attention of the college dean and two rival cereal companies, touching off a hilarious chain of events. Ultimate control of the moneymaking formula rides on a weight lifting match between the pitifully small Medfield team and the superior State challengers. It's a mixture of fun, comedy, and adventure that will have everyone exploding with laughter!

Common Sense Says
Dexter Riley trilogy falls flat in its final installment.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this film is geared toward kids, it has less to do with its youthful main character, Dexter Riley, than the fictional cereal companies that are vying for a strength formula he created in science class. Watch out for the belittling portrayal of Asian-American culture.
