The word SCOUT is very misleading. The son and his father join this group of other fathers and sons to spend some "quality time" togther at a campout weekend. The movie is boring. I watched it with kids ages 7, 10 and 13 and none of us thought is was good.

I am a Cub Scout leader and thought this would be fun to show the boys. NOT. The characters are not scouts and the behaviors in the movie show the adults being bad role models.

I do NOT recommend this movie.

Father and Scout
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Father and Scout is a very funny family movie.It is about an artistic father who is to over protective of his son. He does not like him plaing sports or rough housing with his friends. One day they get invited to a weekend campout. At the campout they end up having to play different kinds of sports games. They end up losing except at the very end they find the treasure chest and save a boy and his son from falling down all the way in the hole. They get the hero medal and the dad from now on wants to take his son on adventures."

"I love this movie. I've watched it several times already and I'm eagerly awaiting a DVD version for my collection. I've generally found Bob Saget to be far more aggravating than humorous in the past, given his inane and incessant rambling on America's Funniest Home Videos. But he really surprised me in this movie, by being extraordinarily funny. This movie alone, has almost made me a fan of his. Saget plays the part of a somewhat inept father, when it comes to the more physical, outdoorsy things. The hilarity ensues, when Saget feels compelled to take his young son on a camping trip. Brian Bonsall does a wonderful job playing Saget's son and to boot he is absolutely one of the cutest young boy actors to ever grace the screen. An entertaining movie that all can enjoy, but perhaps especially great for fathers and sons."
