  1. Thanks for this review!!! I missed the film when it came out as I was not of the age where it might appeal to me. Amazon is streaming it for #3.99 so I watched it two nights ago and it was hilarious. One of the better Disney films of that time though they must have realized that all the location bloopers would not pass the laugh test for New Rochelle, NY.
