Disney just doesn't make fun films of this sort anymore. And the all-star-cast movie days seem to be over. I'm glad we have films like this to watch and remember. Everyone has their moments to shine here, but Cloris Leachman IMHO takes the cake! The scene at the end with the fingernails is a scream. This used to be very hard to find, but now it's out on DVD. If you haven't seen it yet, give it a try. It was made in '79, which adds to it's charm - all those bell bottoms & hip phrases of the time. You'll love the crash-up derby at the end. This is just a great family film.
