One Got Fat (1963)

*** (out of 4)

A rather hilarious bicycle-safety film has ten kids going to the park for a picnic but they don't follow the safety rules so one by one they are hit by cars. Yes, a film showing kids being hit by cars so you know it has to be one of those now legendary safety films that contain enough unintentional laughs for ten films. The funniest thing is that the kids have monkey masks on as well as long rat tails so seeing them is funny enough. We then get fifteen straight minutes of one kid after another making a mistake and being ran over. One poor sap gets it from a steam roller. None of the actual crashes are seen as we instead get silly cutaways and sound effects. You really can't judge films like this for acting or directing but instead you just rate them on their entertainment level and this one here is pretty high. The entire thing is full of campy moments and it's creepy enough to make you not want to turn your eyes away.
