This is certainly NOT a movie that will change your life or overwhelm you with big stars, action or exotic locales! However, considering how modest the pretensions are, this is actually a very nice family film that is worth a look. In many ways, this film reminds me of films like MR. SCOUTMASTER and THE PRIVATE WAR OF MAJOR BENSON--all are amiable enough films about a man being mismatched with kids--along with rather predictable results. Some will no doubt be unimpressed, but I actually like a film like this on occasion--just a bit of old fashion fun with Tom Ewell and the rest of the cast.
By the way, Mr. Ewell was just fine in the film, but considering he had a gorgeous wife like Ann Francis, I don't know why all he ever seemed to think about was baseball!!
