Rating:
G
The Strongest Man in the World is a comedic science fiction film directed by Vincent McEveety following Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell), a seemingly unlucky college student at Medfield College who always finds himself in some crazy science experiment gone wrong. When he watches Dean Higgins (Joe Flynn) rage in Professor Quigley's (William Schallert) science class over the finances, Dexter's experiment mixes with another student's cereal mix. It seems that the mixture has given Dexter extreme strength to the point where he can bend street lamps and lifting a chair with a heavy student in it. As he shows Dean Higgins what he can do, the college administrator decides to use this enhancing cereal to break the college out of a slump. Dexter is placed in a weight lifting competition between two opposing cereal companies. Of course, the competition gets worse as goons led by A.J. Arno (Cesar Romero) try to steal the strength increasing formula. The Strongest Man in the World is part of an on-going series involving Dexter Riley in Now You See Him, Now You Don't and The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes.moreless
