Audience Member I watched it because of Bob Crane, Hogan of Hogan's Hero's, hard to believe that he would be 92 years old if he were still alive. I just love Hogan's Hero's and I am looking for other things that Bob did. I also watch only 1 current TV show, The Good Doctor. I was looking for Freddie Highmore as well, he did several cute movies but I couldn't watch the other TV series that he did, The Bates Motel , a horror flick, not for me. This film, Fresh? not really but a definite watch if you like Bob Crane and Disney flicks. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review r 9 A bit of a mishmash of a film. 'Superdad' practically has three storylines rearing a head. You've got a father trying to get involved with his daughter's life, alongside the father having a big work event and the daughter having a sizeable life decision which conflicts with her friends. It's messy, the first one is definitely the film's intended focus but they don't really develop all of them too well. The middle one involves Joe Flynn (Hershberger), who is shoehorned into another Disney live-action flick - he is fairly good in 'The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes' trilogy, but since the original film of that series in 1969 they really tried to force him into a load of their other releases. Somewhat likewise to Kurt Russell (Bart), but at least his role is actually integral here. Bob Crane is solid enough in the main role as Charlie, as is Kathleen Cody as daughter Wendy. Not one I'd recommend, despite some pleasing on the eye shots at the very beginning and very end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's enjoyably bad! It has Bob Crane from Hogan's Heroes in it. The film was used as a vehicle to revive his career after Hogan's Heroes was cancelled. The script is mediocre at best and a Disney film. It has a good cast and a few funny moments but most of the time it tries too hard to be funny. It interestingly enough sat on a shelf for a year before being released, and became a big flop! I can see why. It's filmed in beautiful California and at times you can tell they really cheaped out by using the "blue screen effect" for a few scenes. See this movie for entertainment value only and for Bob Crane making a fool out of himself!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Forget the naysayers, Superdad is loads of fun. It's a touching Disney film with an amusing and heartfelt showing from Bob Crane. And who can forget the cheesy but seductive theme song, "These Are The Best Times"? (First and only viewing - 1/4/2011) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member According to long-standing Hollywood rumours, the real reason for Bob Crane's murder was his participation in this awful Disney family "comedy". If you're still interested at this point, proceed at your own risk... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member I like to consider Vincent McEveety, Kurt Russell and Bob Crane the unsung heroes of Disney. "Superdad," though a fun exercise in camp, does not help my case. This is not to say it wouldn't be something to have playing in the background during a late night party where young adults are consuming alcohol, but I wouldn't know anything about that seeing as I watched it alone. It was late at night though, and that seemed to make it better, at least at the time. You had to be there. Alone though. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
