Most of Disney's live-action features could not live up to the studio's animated films, and SUPERDAD is a good example why. The plot is too simplistic and hopelessly outdated, featuring Crane as a father who wants to get closer to his teenage daughter. He takes the advice of a TV

commentator and starts doing things with Cody, much to her chagrin. Crane starts acting like a teenager and participating in "typical" teen activities with Cody's crowd. Russell, who got his start in Disney pictures before graduating to more quality films, is the boy friend whom Cody knew from

childhood and who becomes Crane's main competitor. The teenagers portrayed here are little different from those in Disney films of the 1950s--a mythical group of fun-loving types who don't resemble real-life teenagers at all. The direction and performances are earnest despite the obvious

dishonesty of the material.
