    I love it!

    I can remember watching the abott and costello movies at my aunt's house when I was a little girl. That was when they were only on VHS. I can remember laughing my head off and wanting to watch them over and over again. I still love these movies, no matter how old they are, they are still classics and everyone will love them

    A very funny movie

    A very funny Abbot and Costello film. A classic story of misunderstandings that end up getting Abbot and Costello into a lot of trouble.

    This should have been a success!!

    This film is extremely funny and very entertaining,as Eddie Parker's mummy is tall and muscular,which may scare some people if they are not old enough to watch this film. Despite it's great story and acting,the movie is not liked by critics,shall we say! But I do not understand why people think this wasn't a good movie,but it really and truly is a great monster,comedy film success! As for a Canadian Home video rating,hopefully it would recieve a decent PG for the presence of the bandaged movie horror monster,though,which might frighten juveniles who have phobia's of monsters,even in comedies! All in all,people should begin to change their minds about this hot horror comedy!!!
