Good, clean fun - an icon of 70's innocence.
11 October 1999 | by Skinny-15See all my reviews

A fun, wonderful icon of the early 70's and the small-town charm reflected in so many Disney movies of the era. There will never be any awards for these charmers and no critical acclaim, as they are probably considered fodder for kiddies, but like other such films of the genre ("That Darn Cat", "Snowball Express", "The Boatniks", "Superdad", etc.) they are loaded with a slew of recognizable faces (in this case Hal Holbrook, Joe Flynn, Wally Cox...even an uncredited small part from The Partridge Family's Danny Bonaduce). Michael-James Wixted is charming with his convincing innocence and cross-reference accent, while Flynn and Cox play the kind of characters they usually do in these types of films - all adding up to silly fun.

This particular film was one of those NBC "Wonderful World Of Disney" Sunday night TV movies that came and went and are suddenly available to be seen on The Disney Channel, so take a no-brainer break and watch this one with (or without) the kids.
