One-line Reviews (10)

The first hour of this movie is frightfully boring, up till the big ending there really isn't much to see.

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.

Enjoyable.

An interesting lighthearted movie, well worth watching .

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.

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!

I think it's just a fun, lovely movie, with wonderful actors, having a good laugh, and creating an enjoyable couple of hours.

I assume the confusion is based on Van Dyke's many previous Disney movies.
