Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Hughes and Mr. Castle try hard to re-create a kind of timeless, idealized comic-strip atmosphere, but except for the performances of Lea Thompson and Robert Stanton... nobody in the movie seems in touch with the nature of the comedy.
Rotten: Its unholy mixture of peppy sadism and pious, self-righteous sentiment comes straight from Hughes' crabbed cinematic heart.
Rotten: Very young children may find the numskull, by-the-numbers gags here amusing, but teens will consider this kids' stuff and adults will be pained.
Rotten: Those good qualities are undermined, unfortunately, by the Switchblade Sam character, who is dirty, threatening and scary.
I luv it
i luv this movie its soooo much fun to watch! and makes me crack up it was one of my favorite movies when growning up. im now 21 and still get a kick out of it
one big side splitting laugh
My family and I love this movie. A great set up from beginning to end. Walter Matthau is great but the villian is even better. Get it.
HE'S A MENACE!
Mason Gamble vs Christopher Lloyd. You bet there's gonna be trouble. This is definitely one of my favorite childhood films and I still love it to this very day!
