Trivia

The Jim Joy Toy Factory in this movie was actually the Naval and Marine Corps Reserve Center, Encino, Ca. @ 6337 Balboa Blvd. I was stationed there and watched them film the scenes. It was much more enjoyable to watch them make it, than watching the movie. See more »

Decent movie, lots of local color
23 October 2010 | by lee-907See all my reviews

It's late 70's made-for-TV movie humor. Lots of actors you'll say "Hey, that's ____________" Yeah, the humor is a bit old and silly, but think of it as a "period piece."

I'm a fan of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) subway, and this movie has a few scenes shot in the stations and on the trains: 16th St Station entrance, a few minutes on the train (old upholstery and maps), and leaving at Glen Park--if you're a BART fan, this is worth it.

The movie also includes great shots of San Francisco and the coast all the way down to San Diego. I'm quite familiar with SF, and the shots don't seem sanitized--they are fairly realistic. This is one of the things I look for in older movies: a chance to look back at what an area used to look like.
