Classic Disney film that's fun to watch
5 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a great and funny classic film by Disney studios. I recall seeing it as a kid, and it's even funnier to watch now....granted you're fortunate enough to see it whenever it's aired. Not sure why the other viewer even bothered to watch the whole thing if he hated it that much. Five minutes into the film you get the feel of what it's going to be like, so why hang around and be miserable for the whole hour if you don't like it to begin with, Einstein? Sheesh....

Kurt Russell narrates. Reflects the era and fun times of the very early 70s. Shame it's not available on VHS or DVD. Should be.
