A laugh riot, and regrettably, a distant memory!
19 September 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on late night television many years ago. It was a laugh riot. Sad to say, I don't remember much else.

A better way to describe this movie was "an invasion of the great comics of the time".

Phyllis Diller was as wild as her wild hair.

Bob Denver, hopelessly typecast by GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, usually played the good hearted but incompetent buffoon to perfection (no wonder they type casted him).

Joe Flynn, then riding on the fame he won by playing Capt. Wallace Binghampton on MCHALE'S NAVY, was type cast to playing the whiny and arrogant snob.

Charles Lane had been long type cast to playing mean, despicable and heartless characters and his characters never smiled unless they had somehow managed to victimize some one first, like taking the last of the person's meager possessions, for example. His most famous role was that of Homer Bedloe, a despicable character who made numerous appearances of PETTICOAT JUNCTION.

Bob Hastings portrayed the spineless and gutless yes-man to side splitting utter perfection, like his famous Lt. Carpenter from MCHALE'S NAVY. One of his earliest roles was on the radio show, ARCHIE, playing who else but Archie Andrews, himself! With such a long list of such brilliant comics, together on film, with a good script, a bad script or no script at all, it would be impossible not to have a classic comedic masterpiece.

DVD? VHS? Anything please?
