Reel Features Season 12 Ticket 4
Oh boy! This character was one of my favorites growing up. It was off-the-walls crazy and it didn't care about that and that is what is so endearing about it.
You have a cyborg detective that while clueless and hap-hazard is able to stumble his way through cases but did it with such style, pan-ash and charisma that you didn't care that he was incompetent at his job.
That was part of the fun. That and as a kid it was so fun to see which Gadget he would use in each episode. I was very partial to the Gadget-copter and Gadget-arms that would extend to whatever he wanted to retrieve and apprehend. That and he had the coolest car for an animated series in the 80s - the Gadget Mobile that would transform from a family minivan to a high-speed police car that looked similar to KITT from Knight Rider.
Fast-forward to 1999 and the live action adaptation occurs with Matthew Broderick cast as the Titular character. I was so stoked when it was announced that I couldn't contain my excitement.
The movie however was ok. I give my full thoughts in the video and it basically amounts to that it's nothing more than a guilty pleasure.
