Following The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes and Now You See Him, Now You Don't, this was Kurt Russell's third outing as Disney's super-teen Dexter Riley. Here his misadventures begin when he acquires phenomenal strength from chemicals accidentally added to his favourite breakfast cereal. When he goes on to win a weightlifting contest, the unscrupulous Cesar Romero and Phil Silvers try to steal the formula from Eve Arden. Russell is amiable enough, but the real fun comes from the film's seasoned stars, who expertly manage to wring smiles out of some pretty tired gags.


A student and his friends discover a formula that, when mixed with breakfast cereal, gives them superhuman strength. However, it is not long before their breakthrough is noticed by the criminal fraternity and a motley assortment of crooks are after the secret. Disney comedy, starring Kurt Russell, Eve Arden, Joe Flynn, Cesar Romero and Phil Silvers.
