“ I think it's just a fun, lovely movie, with wonderful actors, having a good laugh, and creating an enjoyable couple of hours.
“ The characters they play here are also a bore, when compared to "Rob Petrie" and "Agent 99" as partnered with Mary Tyler Moore and Don Adams.. Led by instantly likable TV treasure John McGiver (as Albert) - playing a defrocked reverend needing salvation - the supporting cast is terrific.
“ An interesting lighthearted movie, well worth watching .
“ The first hour of this movie is frightfully boring, up till the big ending there really isn't much to see.
“ I assume the confusion is based on Van Dyke's many previous Disney movies.
“ You know about their capers but they are unbelievably carried out and some times even hard to follow the methodology.
“ All in all an enjoyable Christmas film our family loves to watch year after year!
“ It was flat, unfunny and dull, dull, dull.
“ Van Dyke keeps whatever interest there is going, but this vehicle for him is extremely mild, exceptionally mundane, and filled with a kind of Jolly Roger merriment that doesn't translate to the viewer.
