While horribly dated, this film still can make you bray out loud with laughter. In the vein of the Airplane movies, it is simply silly. Some creative editing, while pleasing to the eye, will make natives of Depoe Bay and Newport, Oregon (where most of it was filmed) do a double take and say "what the....?" In summary, a great film if you don't take yourself too seriously.
