One of My Favourite Comedies
I loved this movie when I first saw it. I used to have guys over towatch and we would be rolling on the floor laughing. We have anunofficial club that often quotes some of the lines. I even made mywife get up at 2 a.m. to watch it (1977, no VCR at the time). She wasnot keen at the time but loves it now.
The characters, John Astin, Mickey Rooney and the rest, werespectacular in their roles.
Some of my favourite scenes are the "shoe horn", "close window to breakwith gun before shooting", "many of my friends met their maker swinginglike that", actually the list is endless.
Another classic comment about this movie is that no one gets killed(well almost no one). Even though they are shooting at each otherwithin a couple of feet, they all seem to miss hitting one another.This adds to the humorous aspect of the truly funny movie.
I too wish this was on DVD. I cannot understand why NBC or whomeverdoes not put out a DVD copy. Fantastic movie. If you want a sidesplitter this would be the best movie to get or rent.
