Imitation 60's Disney Slapstick
1 August 2006 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a series of slapstick gags mostly set within a restaurant. The first half seems quite mean-spirited and uninvolving, while the second half does capture a spirit of zaniness that makes it watchable if not very enjoyable.

Margo Harshman and Michelle Brookhurst do a good job as the protagonist and antagonist and can look forward hopefully to better things. John Larraquette and Leslie Ann Warren have done better things and hopefully will look on this as the low point of their distinguished careers.

I think the target audience for the film is kids 8-12 years old. They might enjoy some of it. Adults will be bored rather than amused.
