Wonderful film highligting the original shows' more innocent times.
This film would not normally be considered a great film, but beacuse it stays true in reflecting the innocent times of the original 1963-66 tv seris, it works.
Patty Duke has not lost her touch and playing the genetically unexplainable identical cousins, Patty and Cathy and she looks great.
The rest of the original cast also reflect the magic they did on the original show and are still the same in personailty. The one who has probably changed the most is Jean Byron as "Mommo" and for the better. IN the original she would never have said anything salty like talking about Viagra. It's wonderful to see her so full of spunk.
Cindy Williams, who is new to the cast,is also excellent as the evil Sue Ellen. She goes way over the top with her role as you would need to.
As for the kids, Liam and Molly, both are wonderful, however, Liam's Scotch voice is kind of hard to understand.
This film achieved a lot more than any other reunion movie I have seen before. They take us into the 90s, yet, with the innocence of the early 60s.
