like every other user here i saw this film when i was a kid and taped it because it was on in the middle of the night. AND I STILL HAVE MY COPY!!!! at least 3 times a year i dug out from where ever it has disapeared to and watch it again.
i canno understand how anybody could not enjoy this movie, maltin must be terminally brain dead to not laugh at this, and that user rating system sucks! how could it get 4.2 out of 10 if the majority of people voted it between 7 and 10! check it out and see for yourself, nearly everyone gave it a great rating yet it still only gets a 4.2 average according to IMDb. THIS SUCKS MORE THAN ANYTHING HAS SUCKED BEFORE!!! but really, what difference does it make. we here all know it is a brilliant classic.
What can i say about the plot, nothing, it's to stupid to explain, it has to be seen to be believed. what can i say about the acting? it's ridiculous. what can i say about the film over all? it's HYSTERICAL!!! do yourself a favour, ignore maltin and the IMDb's rating system AND GO FIND THIS MOVIE. it is brilliant. 10 out of 10
