Address Comments To:
Any fan of Albert Brooks will not be disappointed by his performance in THE SCOUT. As a matter of fact, the majority of the humor in this comedy is based on character, not sight-gags or stupid jokes, giving the whole piece a sophistication typical of many of Brooks' other films. In playing Steve Nebraska, Brendan Fraser opts to make his human parallel to King Kong more innocent than threatening. A relatively small amount of foul language makes THE SCOUT unsuitable for younger ears, and a brief humorous treatment of Catholicism is more a comment on Al's character than a reflection of the Catholic faith.
