Father and Scout is a 1994 comedy film, starring Bob Saget and Brian Bonsall. The film was written by Sheldon Bull and Hoyt Hilsman and directed by Richard Michaels.


Father and Scout chronicles the tale of love and love lost within a family. Writer Spencer Paley (Bob Saget) agrees to go on a father-son camping trip to Catalina Island with his 8-year-old son Michael (Brian Bonsall).



TV Guide gave the film two out of five stars, concluding: "FATHER AND SCOUT is satisfactory family entertainment. The script has little to offer in the way of originality, but it is innocuous fun".[1] The website Need Coffee gave the film a very bad review, stating: "If you have very small kids who don't know what a good movie is, they might like this. But why get them off on the wrong foot? Best to just turn and walk away."[2]
