This film is every bit as entertaining as any of the other Disney films of the 1959-1979 period. What do you want?
You got your high jinx. You got your love story. You got your Kurt Russell. You got classic Bruno Kirby. You got your Bob Crane (Colonel Hogan, and unfairly slammed as an actor). You got your mad cap caper. You got your teenage conflict with authority. You got little kids laughing.
Why are we looking for dramatic depth in a Disney kids movie?
I watched this movie several times as a Disney movie of the week in the 70's. We even rented the 16mm version for display at youth conferences. All I have are fond memories and a wish for the video to be added to the other Disney Classics.
Lighten up and go with the flow, man!
