The most fantastic film ever made
6 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film in the spring of 2001, I thought it was the most humorous and amazing camera work I had ever seen. I still feel this way. The movie starts off with this banjo crazy epic jingle about epic heroes and the greatest of them all, the Man From Clover Grove. I like Millie Swickle, Claude Raintree, and the guy who plays Millie's father. It's all so cute and funny or ridiculous, you'll laugh yourself right out of your seat and swear you've been beat up by stupid. There's this hilariously long chase seen, where you get the feeling the director got out the weirdest music he was glad he never through away and decided he had to roll a lot of film to make the movie longer. Also there's all this play going on about Claude Raintree, our legendary hero, and Millie Swickle, his love interest. It's cute. As crazy as this movie is with orphans traveling in the back of a sort of dump truck, a horrible minstrel performance by a deputy and police chasing remote control vehicles all to the tune of psychedelic music, it's a delightful campfire tale type sort of story and filming. It makes you laugh cause it's so incredibly stupid. It's the most fantastic film ever made. I wish I could see it at least six more times.
