Tania Raymonde is listed as playing "Cynthia" in this episode. That is
incorrect; she is not in this episode.
The Cynthia character first appears in Season 2, Episode 12, "Krelboyne Girl". She is introduced in that episode, which comes much later than this one.
IMDb should correct this error.
The episode itself is classic Malcolm. The family goes to a picnic, and creates havoc. Especially funny is Francis' relationship with Jody, who he meets, dates, breaks up with, and sees again, all in the space of this one picnic.
This is a fun movie for those who remember the actresses of the day
(Tiffany Bolling, Julie Newmar, Britt Ekland and Monique Gabrielle).
Not good for anything much more than nostalgia, however. I first saw
the movie on late-night cable back in the mid-80's, but I understand it
is out on DVD now, even though IMDb does not indicate so. Is it worth
buying? Probably not. But if it can be found as a rental, it might be
worth a view. All 4 women are beautiful and not ashamed to show it.
Just to correct the comment in a previous review - Tiffany Bolling was NOT a Playboy centerfold. She did one photo shoot in Playboy, but she was never a Playmate.
Run-of-the-mill cutsie Disney "horror" movie (a contradiction in
terms?). You have to be pretty bored to sit through this. If you have
nothing better to do, go ahead and watch it. But don't go out of your
way to find it. I watched it to see Kirsten Dunst (NOT Kirsten Storms,
in spite of what a previous reviewer said!) in an early role. Even
here, she shows signs of what she is capable of doing, and does in her
later roles. Other than that, there isn't much substance to this.
But then again, this is aimed at a young audience, so for them, this can be entertaining. Unfortunately, the plot is predictable. You can tell what is coming a mile away. A typical Disney TV movie.
