When Grandpa is trying to get Herman to take the "sea-sick" pill, he is wearing gloves. When he himself takes the wolf pill by mistake, his left hand starts to change and he is no longer wearing a glove on that hand, but is still wearing a glove on the right hand. See more »
Theatrical farewell to Herman, Lily, Grandpa and the gang features many of the same talents behind the popular 1960s television show "The Munsters", but this misadventure seems a little bereft of imagination--perhaps a laugh-track might have helped? The ghoulish clan inherits a British estate, and Herman gets involved in a slapstick auto race. Debbie Watson is the one newcomer to the cast (taking over for Pat Priest as niece Marilyn), but not even a jovial Fred Gwynne or the glinty-eyed Al Lewis can raise this script from the crypt. Maybe filming the family in color was a technical error--it takes the edge off the Universal/monster movie satire which the TV show nailed without effort. This one strains for laughs, and ends on a whimper. *1/2 from ****
