I enjoyed it
30 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1976 I was 8 years old. I'll admit I was one of those who watched the Brady Bunch a lot only to see Maureen McCormick. So when my dad took us to see this movie and I realized she was in it I loved the movie. It could have been the worst movie of all times and I wouldn't have known the difference. This movie came out in 1976, and I have no doubt that even as early as 1980 movies were much better. So this could be a good or bad movie but what would it compare with movies that are out in todays world? (2007) There is much better talent and movie equipment and special effects etc. but I sometimes think that movies and TV shows from that era were better just because there was more true meaning involved. There was a movie around that same time with a similar story line and I read one review that said they don't make family movies like this anymore. It is my intention to purchase this movie via the internet and watch it with my 12 year old daughter to see if I like it or not, and see what her opinions are. There is no way I can remember the story from way back then. All I remember is having a crush on Maureen McCormick and enjoying the movie for that reason.
