It was a fun movie
15 March 2007 | by ockid44See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a kid and I cannot remember much about it. But I do remember Mickey Rooney and I thought he was hilarious. I remember Milner playing Adam. I remembered him because he starred in TV series Route 66.

The movie caught my attention as a child because I went to church regular and I was very familiar with the Biblical Adam and Eve story.

Like I stated, I cannot remember much but I have always wanted to see the movie again. It was corny but fun.

I would love to buy a copy of it to see if the movie would be just as funny as it was years ago.
