Overview

This film is based on The Stupids series of children's books by Harry Allard and James Marshall, which are about a family that takes things very, very literally. In this film, the Stupids attempt to discover what happens to the garbage that disappears from their lawn every week (they think it has been stolen) and accidentally save the world. The father, Stanley (Tom Arnold), goes undercover posing as a tree and unknowingly stumbles into an international arms-smuggling scheme. He believes that the garbage theft is perpetrated by his old enemy from the Post Office, "Sender" (Christopher Lee). His absence worries his equally befuddled children, who go looking for him. Meanwhile he is chased by both the weapons smugglers and beings from outer space. Directed by John Landis, known for his hit films Trading Places and The Blues Brothers.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The Stupids isn't stupid; it's dreadful. It's also dull, unamusing and downright irritating. It's the kind of film about which stating that Jessica Lundy manages to occasionally threaten to produce something resembling the start of a teeny little smile is about the pinnacle of praise. Film students will also find something of some minimal interest by attempting to identify the famous directors (including Costa-Gavras, David Cronenberg, Robert Wise and Norman Jewison) that pop up in cameos along the excruciatingly long way from the first frame to the final flicker. Perhaps some viewers can also get some distraction by wondering how Christopher Lee and Bob (Captain Kangaroo) Keeshan were shanghai-ed into participating. Otherwise, one is left to contemplate whether it's really possible that Tom Arnold is truly as awful as he seems to be in Stupids, or to wonder whether director John Landis has an evil (and monumentally untalented) twin that is actually responsible for the work on display here. Not even the kind of bad movie that one can laugh at rather than with, Stupids is simply a waste of time.
