The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes is a 1995 TV remake of the 1969 Walt Disney Productions film The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes. Directed by Peyton Reed, it stars Kirk Cameron in the lead role of a boy who becomes an instant genius, wired directly into the Internet. It was the second in a series of remakes of Disney movies produced for broadcast on ABC.[1] The film co-stars Larry Miller, and Dean Jones plays the role of an evil dean from a competing school..[2]

Reception[edit]

Variety gave the film a moderately positive review, calling it an "utterly silly yarn" that "lacks the zaniness of the original", and complimented Larry Miller's performance.[3] People gave it a B+ rating and called it a "fun, facile remake" with a good cast.[4]
