Leave It to Beaver is a 1997 film that is a remake of the TV situation comedy series of the same name. There are many in-jokes related to the original series within the movie. The film features all the original regular characters, all played by new actors. It also took the unusual route of placing the original sitcom characters, with their 1950s fashion sense and 1950s sitcom family morality, in a contemporary 1990s setting, drawing humor from the resulting culture clash.
