About the Movie
It was the largest gathering of little people ever, drawn from all over to appear in the movie of a classic children's story. They weren't in Kansas anymore. They were in Hollywood, home of wide-open lifestyles and nonstop parties. This colorful screwball comedy uses the premise of 150 little people playing The Wizard of Oz's Munchkins housed in one Culver City hotel and indulging in some high-energy partying to spin zany screen mayhem with touches of romance (between G-man Chevy Chase and casting maven Carrie Fisher) and cockeyed espionage (involving German agent Billy Barty and Japanese spy Mako). Co-stars Eve Arden, Adam Arkin, Joseph Maher and Pat McCormick deliver tall orders of laughter, while smashing into small-fry shenanigans at every turn. There's no place like Under the Rainbow.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Rash has earnestness and a touch of eccentricity, but he doesn't have the lighthearted wit to keep this kind of comedy working.
Rotten: This movie is in desperate need of an ace farceur like Preston Sturges.
Rotten: A peculiar career choice for Fisher.
Pretty good, not bad, okay
I liked this movie, and to tell the truth, I have been waiting for it to come to iTunes. I saw it long ago and was entertained. I am reminded of Young Frankenstein with the campy humor. Whenever I think of "the wizard of Oz" I cant help but this film rises from the recesses of my mind. Worth watching.
I saw this as a child and loved it. Totally campy and fun! It is finally on iTunes!
