According to Director Michael Schultz, Richard Masur played his role annoyingly as possible and mostly improvised. In an interview 30 years later, Masur claims that he based his role of 'Georgie' on Nicky, an angry, drooling and spoiled five-year-old neighbor and schoolmate of his who would throw fits and tantrums when he did not get his way. All of Masur's facial expressions and movements were based on his memories of Nicky. Masur modeled his character, a 30-year-old man, as having the mind of a spoiled five-year-old. The eyeglasses worn by Masur were props instead of Masur's real prescription eyeglasses with thick glass lenses in which he had some difficulty seeing through them. See more »

This movie is hilarious and great for family viewing
Anyone that does not like this movie is a snob with no sense of humor. For example, the art-deco neighbors to the Griswolds in Christmas Vacation, they probably wouldn't like this movie, it would be far too unsophisticated. Mike Myers character, Dieter, from the Saturday Night Live skit "Sprockets, he wouldn't like this movie either. I say, "lighten up Francis", to borrow a phrase from Stripes. Enjoy it for what it is. Sometimes it is enjoyable to eat something from a four- star restaurant, sometimes it is enjoyable to chew on a piece of bubblegum. The cast is all-star from the 70s and there are many funny moments. Political correctness adherents, steer clear, you won't like this movie. By the way, get a life, PC adherents.
