Don't let poor reviews scare you off any movie. All movies have some value to someone. For example, this was one of my childhood memories. I'm 46 now and have waited almost 40 years to find this and finally I have it. I am thrilled. Any poor effects or dated look or whatever are inconsequential to me. I was really excited to see it again. And I feel the same way about several other movies, and I'm sure everyone has movies they feel that way about. Don't take it all these movies so seriously! Some are just plain fun, and certainly a reminder of more innocent times. So enjoy, no matter how silly it may seem by today's standards.
