LEAVE IT TO BEAVER Christopher McDonald, Janine Turner, Cameron Finley (1997, Universal, PG, $19.98) Here’s how not to make a ’90s movie based on a creaky sitcom. Unlike ”The Brady Bunch Movie,” which sent up its ’70s family by treating its members as though they were living in a time warp, Beaver tries to bend the ’90s to the old show’s wholesomeness, while lamely updating the milieu with computer mishaps and family therapy. Don’t rent this clueless rehash when you can still catch reruns of the real thing for free. D+
