Burgess Meredith and Paul Ford and a Really Silly Idea
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can any of these characters write or draw a picture? The world is suffering from a substance that has muted the population. Burgess Meredith and his wife live in the woods. While he's out looking for a deer, he runs across a flying saucer, but he is incapable of communicating this. Not only that, a dwarf dressed as an alien in a rubber suit, has had one of his hands lopped by one of Meredith's traps. This now degenerates into a hopeless pantomime. Burgess goes to town to try to explain to Paul Ford what happened. What follows is a hilarious series of efforts that parallel Gene Wilder and Marty Feldman in "Young Frankenstein" stuck in the rotating bookshelf. Why they chose to do this is beyond me, but I have to admit if you throw out all possible critical observation, this is quite a hoot. Oh, by the way, do any of you have a pack of ten sticks of dynamite in a box in your house? Doesn't everyone?
