This is a comedy that doesn't suffer from time or repeated viewings. It has all the trappings of a true classic. The cast, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Edward Hermann and Roddy McDowall all put in good performances. The 4 child actors all do very well, too. The story is a funny one and it keeps me laughing. All in all, a very funny movie. I own it and will throw it in the DVD player every once in a while.
