Slappy and the Stinkers (1998, comedy and slapstick)
Five supposedly stinky second-graders free a sea lion named Slappy from an aquarium and make it their mission to return him to the ocean. The usually sleek and commanding actor, B.D. Wong, is reduced to playing the kids' foil in the form of a school headmaster who is either falling down, getting hit in the groin, or being soaked with something wet and repulsive. Another foil is a malodorous animal dealer (Sam MacMurray) who wants to sell Slappy to a Bulgarian circus. Be sure and look for Bronson Pinchot as a dimwitted groundskeeper who mistakes Slappy for a gopher. Or, just splice Caddyshack and Free Willy together, and enjoy much better movies on the same themes.
