You're the Worst Junk I Ever Picked Up
5 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A boy named Jimmy (Charles Herbert) is transported back in time to the pirate ship of Blackbeard by an irritating genie. Jimmy's a dopey kid for sure but I kind of like him anyway. He has some pithy lines and I enjoyed his banter with the genie very much. Murvyn Vye looks preposterous in his fake beard but he's having fun with the role. The movie is entertaining in spots but ultimately suffers from a lack of budget and pedestrian direction. It's all very silly and is almost certainly aimed at kids, although some of the dialogue would have gone over their heads even in 1960. Still, for a Bert I. Gordon movie it's not too bad. Give it a shot.
