      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Declining to update the television series' sensibility for modern audiences while lacking in its requisite charm, Leave it to Beaver should have just left these characters in the past.

      Lisa Alspector Chicago Reader [The] dead-on imitations of some of the characters from the television series created by Bob Mosher and Joe Connelly will seem pointlessly stylized to viewers unfamiliar with the old sitcom. May 19, 2008 Full Review Joe Leydon Variety Fuzzily conceived and blandly executed. May 19, 2008 Full Review Liam Lacey Globe and Mail The Cleavers have come to represent the stereotype of the white-bread family.This reverent '90s remake doesn't do much to challenge it. Rated: 2/4 Apr 12, 2002 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Modernized take on '50s TV show, with some bullying. Rated: 3/5 Feb 6, 2013 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Unnecessary film take on the classic TV series. Leave it. Rated: 1/5 Nov 1, 2008 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide All but the most easily pleased kids will be bored as can be, and anyone who has fond memories of TV's Leave It to Beaver would probably rather not besmirch them.

      Poetic W Not as good as the original show the original show is better than this movie. I rather watch the original TV show. It's okay to watch to pass the time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Bonitinho, mas apesar dos personagens infantis fofinhos, o filme não consegue cativar tanto quanto supunha, tornando se entediante do meio para o fim, que na verdade não venci, saiu da grade Netflix antes que eu pudesse me esforçar o suficiente para conclui-lo… Regular, quase fraco... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie was not that bad, it's getting four stars due to the tribute by having some of the original characters appear in the movies. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review robert p I hate movies about TV Series, they messed up Bewitched and now this one! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is a insult to the 1960s version with no charm to it. No one needs a stupid modern day remake. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review steve d There was no reason to revisit this forgettable series. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
