During the water-ski scene, the Bruno Kirby character is filming Bob Crane's character. When they are watching the film in a later scene, it is simply the scene from the movie, complete with edits and slow motion effects instead of what the character would really have filmed. See more »

The mid 60s to the mid 70s was a great decade for Disney movies and "Superdad" was one of the standouts of the period. Although not my favorite at the time (I saw it when I was 9 at the Bellerose movie theater, now a karate supply store, on Long Island.)because who wanted to see a Disney movie that was about the father not the kids. However, when I got a little older I began to really enjoy this movie. It has a very appealing cast, big laughs, an evil hippie and an ending that doesn't leave a dry eye in the living room. What more could anyone want? Besides, I have to like this movie because it stars Dick Van Patten and years earlier he also lived in Bellerose.
