Edith Butterwell (Billie Bird) and Edward Little (Bill Erwin) had previously played together in Home Alone (1990). They can be seen as the two fumbling over their glasses announcing Mr. Wilson (Walter Matthau) as the host for that summer's Floraganza. In Home Alone (1990), they are the elderly couple, from whom Catherine O'Hara tries to barter tickets, in the airport. Both movies were written by John Hughes. See more »

This movie is best compared to "Home Alone" and the better of the two.
I feel really badly that this movie is on the list of worst according to average vote. If you consider that it relies very much on slap-stick humour, which does not appeal to everyone, that might explain its poor showing.
The movie is best compared to "Home Alone." I feel it is by far the better of the two movies. Dennis is wide-eyed and innocent and the slap-stick scenarios are 'accidental' rather than contrived as in "Home Alone."
This is a movie that elderly parents can watch and be guaranteed to have a good time. It is also a movie that kids will love. If those in between can't appreciate it, that speaks a lot for their loss of innocence.
