Lock Up This Movie!
24 January 2004 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Awful late-sixties so-called "comedy" about the ill-fated attempts of an over-protective father (Christopher Plummer) to keep his daughters pure. Plummer's hate for his most famous film, "The Sound of Music," is infamous. Many people know that he refers to it as "The Sound of Mucus." So he started appearing in really bad movies (most notably ones where he plays evil characters) in order to wipe away his Nice Family Man persona.

So he made this trash instead? Whatever.
