Yes, if nothing else, the Mr. Peacock song montage makes this movie for me. I can't help but laugh out loud every time I see it. The movie itself is also quite good, relatively speaking. Any film with Don Knotts playing an unwitting Hugh Hefner clone can't help but be at least amusing in my book. But watch for his little dance during the montage--that self satisfied smirk on his face while Darlene Love sings his virtues--it's a surreal treat. Of course, most of his films--The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, The Shakiest Gun in the West, The Reluctant Astronaut, and The Incredible Mr. Limpet all have something entertaining to offer to those in the mood for something fun and undemanding.
