Bushwhacked ★★½ Tenderfoots; The Tenderfoot 1995 (PG-13)

Crude, rude, dim-witted, kid-hating Max Grabelski (Stern) is falsely accused of murder and forced to become a fugitive. While not to be confused with Harrison Ford, he is misjewel taken for the leader of a group of Cub Scouts out on their maiden camping trip and soon finds himself in an unlikely partnership with the boys. Together they encounter everything from grizzly bears to whitewater rapids. Light-hearted, goofy comedy continues Stern's tendency toward kid-intensive, family-oriented fare in the “Rookie of the Year” vein. 85m/C VHS, DVD . Daniel Stern, Jon Polito, Brad Sullivan, Ann Dowd, Anthony Heald, Tom Wood; D: Greg Beeman; W: Tommy Swerdlow, Michael Goldberg, John Jordan, Danny Byers; M: Bill Conti.
