Awsome Movie!!!!!

This is a movie I grew up with! It's funny and I think you will enjoy it!!

Classic Disney

Lots of fun to remember what life was like back then!

I remember

I used to own this on VHS back a while ago. It was an alright buy but the effects clearly show it was 1959. I wouldn't really ever recommend this movie to anyone. It's not that funny, is very cliched sometimes, and just bores me. iTunes made the better choice making this rent only. I mean I'm the first review. Anyway if you like this movie then great, but I'm almost positive you won't like it in a week so don't buy it just save your money. It's like that Starbucks or whatever drink you got. "Hey this is pretty good" then when you think about it it's not so good. Well I'm just rambling now.
