| Great fun for kids and family...
This is a fun family comedy, that doesn't have the syrupy "message" nonsense you find in such movies today. This film hinges on Don Knotts and his trademark physical comedy, which he delivers with ease. I loved his movies as a kid, and my kids love them too.

It is amazing how much Knotts is willing to make himself look completely ridiculous to make you laugh. One such scene happens when he is courting his girlfriend on the porch of his boarding house. He starts to chop his hands in the air, she asks what he is doing, he replies "Oh that's karate, I've been studying it through the mail for years". Then he puffs up his chest and boasts, "My whole body's a weapon". You almost can't watch it, but my seven and nine-year-old sons make me rewind it over and over, laughing their heads off each time.

Introduce your kids to this, and other silly movies starring Don Knotts. They'll enjoy them, and it will give them a little insight into your world as a child.
