Trivia

In the scene where the church is blown up, the movie's crew didn't realize until after the destruction (in one take, of course) that there was no film in the camera. The church had to be rebuilt and blown up again. As of a few years ago, it still sits on a lot at Buena Vista studios. See more »

Mrs. Rose Rafferty: Lots. Carlucci's Bakery, the pet store on Friar, or the orthopedic shoe store. But I'll lay you 8-to-1 he used Harry the Hat.

Cute 20+ years ago, still cute now!
25 February 2003 | by crittermonsterSee all my reviews

I saw this in the theater with my mom in 1979 (I was 9) and we still have a laugh every now and then when we see something that reminds us of the car chase scene.

Lots of good, clean fun for when you want to enjoy a comedy with kids--without having to explain any embarrassing stuff or naughty words. Also, the 70's are "in" again as well...and they make for a fun trip down memory lane for folks of Gen-X vintage (or their parents).
