Slap stick comedy, a spoof Was good to see the actors in their younger days. Found this on dashboard.

*groan*... just awful. I was so embarrassed for everyone in this film. The jokes really fall flat (bad timing?... editing?... directing?...) There are some great actors and the extras are wonderful because they are just playing themselves (kind of - I had a strong feeling watching this movie that none of the extras knew they were helping make a movie that would end up mocking them). The look and feel of the film are really dated and the story line sometimes jumps from one vignette to the next in a way that doesn't move the story or make any sense. Just the way this film mocks people Lear hated is uncomfortable to sit through, especially knowing most of the people in the film were probably those people.

When shopping as a young girl in a drugstore in Winterset, IA a man introduced himself as a movie producer and offered to cast me in his movie. Not knowing better I provided my name and phone number. He gave me his card stating his assistant would call me. I had doubts that this "Norman Lear" was actually a movie producer but true to his word his assistant called within the week. I managed to get my mom, dad, and brother all signed up as movie extras as well. Dick Van Dyke, Jean Stapleton, Pippa Scott, Tom Poston, Vincent Gardenia, Peggy Rea and Norman Lear were all very personally engaging with all the movie extras. Making for a most memorable experience of a lifetime!
