His name is Elliott. He's 20 feet high, 40 feet long. He can become invisible at the drop of a hat, or spew red hot flames. In fact, there's only one way to bring this awesome beast under control... rub his tummy. See more »
Originally, Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn were only hired to write one song, "Candle on the Water." But the studio was so pleased with the song that they decided to make it as a musical and kept Kasha and Hirschhorn on to write the score. See more »

Hey Ma, w-why don't we get ourselves another orphan, huh?
Because I done paid our last $50 for Pete, plus $.50 legal fees, and we ain't got another $50 plus legal, that's why. Ya understand?

If I were to first see this movie as an adult, I would probably scoff at it and return to "more important" things like ipods. However, I have been watching this movie since I was about five years old, and I have always loved it. Maybe my reason for loving it is because it brings back memories of my wonderful childhood, or maybe it's because the catchy melodies continue to get stuck in my head. This is a Disney movie from the 70's. It doesn't have to be Godfather II material. It's sad that the animation of the movie doesn't even compare to the computer animation of today, but don't let that get in the way of this story. It's just fun, bubblegum for the brain. This will always be one of my favorite Disney movies, and I will continue to watch it. I recommend that you do the same.
