Excellent Comedy
30 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the other reviewer here states, this is a great and sadly neglected comedy. I loved it back in the 70s and it needs to be released on DVD!!!! Larry Hagman and Jack Elam were fantastic. Hagman played such a great role on I Dream of Jeannie and here he continued with his great sense of timing and comedic skills that would eventually fade into his later years doing serious drama in Dallas, where he transformed into the anti-Nelson character JR. He showed great versatility in these two roles alone, yet appeared in many other films. Those who appreciate Hagman as a great comedian must see this film and Sidekicks must be released on DVD soon!
