Unfortunately I have found a Disney movie that I just absolutely hated. This is a version of Don Quixote set in the late 60's early seventies. It has none of the charm or whimsy that Disney live action movies had previous to this soiled gem. This is one of Ron Miller's wonders.

I bought the movie because of Brian Keith. I think he is handsome, funny and has a great air about him. Here he plays a sort of crazy old drunken codger who thinks he is a cowboy in the old west. He mumbles, rambles, and talks to himself and anyone who will listen. I guess it could be considered a strong performance, but it annoyed me.

His cohort is an illegal Mexican. Well, in the current economy when this is viewed, an illegal worker is not a character that I am interested in watching or being friends with. Then there is the foreclosure issue in the story that just hits home for too many. Additionally, there were sub plot story lines that I guess I didn't quite get involving him.

I love Disney live action movies pre 1980's, but this one just had Ron Miller's hand on it, you can sense it. It was trying to be too adult without being crude and stay entertaining to younger viewers, which it's not. This was all around disappointing!
