"Two-thumbs Up" (Highly recommended if you need a good laugh)
I first saw this movie about nine years ago. It was loaned to my younger brother by his friend. I never saw this movie again because my brother's friend (and the movie) left town. After months of searching movie rental locations, with no progress, I decided to try Amazon.com to find this hilarious comedy. I'm very happy to say that "The Private Eyes" movie was FOUND! When I told John(my brother) that I had found "The Private Eyes" movie(on VHS & DVD)he immediately ordered two of these Don Knotts & Tim Conway classics. We've never laughed so much!!! Thank You so much Amazon.com. P.S. I would like to know if Lang Elliot would consider or did consider making a sequel.
