What an INSULT to DON KNOTTS! I WORE OUT my VHS version of this one and have been impatiently awaiting the DVD version !!!! Hooray!! This is a GREAT movie and gee, your kids can watch it over and over again and never get tired of it. They also will not come away with any new disgusting habits or noises.
I was a young kid when this I first saw this classic and I was sure I was too cool to be caught off guard laughing out loud at an 'old' movie. I still have the casette tape I recorded of the movie while watching it. I now crack up listening to myself laugh my a*s off. I highly, highly recommend this movie for ALL ages. Don Knotts was a brilliant comedian and the fact he was snubbed for the Oscar that year is one of the greatest injustices in motion picture history.
I remember first viewing this movie as a child. I thought this was one of the funniest movies Don Knotts ever made. As an adult, I still get a kick out of watching this film.
Don Knotts came to national prominence on the Andy Griffith show as Deputy Barney Fife. Griffith told Knotts that he did not believe he would do more than a few years of the show so Knotts made a movie deal. Griffith stayed with the show without telling Knotts he was doing so and Knotts left one of the most successful series on television at the height of its popularity. Depending on how you look at it that was either the best move he ever made or the worst. In my opinion The Ghost and Mr. Chicken was perhaps the best of the seven films from that time done by Knotts. A bumbling newsman is sure that the local mansion is haunted and he tries to convince the town he isn't crazy. Of course, being as neurotic as he was nobody believes him. Is the house haunted or isn't it. You'll have to decide. It is wonderful escape film and fun for everyone.
I can't really review the movie because I bought it as a gift for someone. I will say that I was very happy with the service provided by B&N.
This is a great movie for all of the family.
Put your mind on hold for 90 minutes and enjoy this romp that boasts tremendous character actors and the gorgeous Joan Staley, but which is a vehicle for and is dominated by Don Knotts as the insecure Luther Heggs. The plot is obvious, but who cares? The movie has great tag lines (''Karo, Karo, Salome'', ''...and they used Bon Ami'')and wears well, even today! Atta boy, Luther! Thank you very much!
as a child i saw this movie in the theatre. it is a really fun thing to watch it at home with my kids. such a good old fashioned family film.
Jim Carey, even in his brilliance cannot touch Don Knotts' comic genius in this film. Don's expressions alone should garner him the best character representation of Luther Heggs ever. You can't improve upon what's already perfect. I can't wait for DVD release.
The small midwestern town vibe of the 60's is portrayed perfectly. A place slightly hipper than Mayberry. Don Knotts gives a virtouso performance in this highly entertaining spooky-comedy. Great characters and wonderfully creepy organ music.
