In response to whether acting is work or fun, Barret Oliver states in a 1985 "Star Log" interview: "I think it's fun, but it really is a job. In D.A.R.Y.L. (1985) there was a part where I had to freeze to death and they didn't even use it. It can get kind of frustrating. See more »

I like this movie. It is exactly the type of movie that often makes me so irritated with the critics. I know that it is not a great movie and it doesn't pretend to be. But it is just the type of movie I enjoy watching after a difficult day at work. DARYL and his family and his neighbors are nice decent people. The villains are properly villainous. They humor is light and fun. (I especially like the part where DARYL's mom is telling her friend about all the things DARYL does, like make his bed and iron his cloths.) The ending is wonderful and hilarious.
If you haven't seen it please do. It is fun and enjoyable and it is an excellent family movie.
