Best known from his gag TV appearances in which he gets (bloodlessly) squashed, pummelled and blasted like a Warner Brothers cartoon character, gravel-voiced daredevil Super Dave Osborne here tries to carry an entire comedy feature on his accident-prone shoulders. A greedy pay-per-view tycoon sends a winsome female temptress, shuts down Super Dave's already-chintzy Vegas amusement park, and even grooms a young punk in imitation of Super Dave, all to force the famous stuntman, supposedly retired, into performing yet another ludicrous feat for the cameras. This skipped being released by MGM in theaters late in 1999, and no wonder; the thin premise and slapsticky jokes work best on the small screen. In terms of PG-rated dumb humor for kids, Super Dave could make a suitable companion to the late Jim "Ernest P. Worrell" Varney and his many direct-to-video features.

This DVD is in very good condition. There are a few superficial scratches on the disc from normal wear and handling, and the jewel case has a few minor scuff marks on the front and back. The insert is missing, but I don't remember if it ever had one.
