Having viewed this loopy ’70s comedy on Disney+, the eight and 10-year-old came away pleased.
And why not, as it was squarely aimed at that market back when young Kurt Russell was getting his start making a series of fun, not-too-deep films for the House of Mouse.
This time, he’s a college kid who mixes up his lab formula and his breakfast cereal, and, presto, he’s got enough strength to bend light poles with his fist.
Especially if said pole is quite obviously, in the close-ups, a mushy prop.
That there is comedy gold for the giggle twins.
