Throwback Thursday: Ladybugs (1992)

Climbing up the corporate ladder is not always easy. Sometimes we have to find creative methods to get up the ladder.

In the 1992 film Ladybugs, Chester Lee (Rodney Dangerfield) is eager to move up the company ladder. But instead of doing it the old-fashioned way, Chester comes up with a unique idea. His company is sponsoring a girls soccer team. The parents sitting on the bleachers during the games work with Chester. Not only will he coach the girls, but he will bring onto the team his secret weapon: Matthew (the late Jonathan Brandis), his soon to be stepson. Dressing Matthew as a girl, Chester hopes that this will bring about the professional success he is hoping for.

This movie is very early 90’s. It’s also aimed at a certain age group. While it is not the best tween/early teen movie from the era, it’s not the worst either.

Do I recommend the film? Maybe.
