When this movie was first released, my dad, aunts & uncles, grandparents and anyone else of the "older" family generational ties would sit down countless times and watch this, and would end up laughing so hard at times you would almost swear they farted in their pants! Seriously, it's from a day and age before times as we know them now, but it was so cleverly put together, any generation will - kids and adults alike - will find it a classic, hard to turn away from. You could say its stupid, silly, cantankerous - but not dirty or raunchy (well, not that much anyway - maybe just a teensy bit on the wild side). In a word - it's an awesome, funny, hold-your-ribs movie. Imagine going through a race and your car and driver is riding so wildly, and your hanging on for your dear life and finally, at one point - "Oh Lord I do hereby repent of my sins..."
If that doesn't sound so funny, then you're missing the boat - and the movie... :o)
