Is there anyone else?


I loved this movie as a child and I love it now. I think Don Knotts and Tim Conway are hilarious together. I have seen this movie in excess of 100 times and I laugh out loud every time. I just want to know if there are any huge Private Eyes fans out there as well as myself.

Tower Records might be able to order you a copy, if they dont have one in stock. There were only so many made, though, hope you find one, friend. (:

reply

There seem to be plenty of copies STILL available today. But, with the DVD price hovering around $25, renting is the way to go.
Similar light fare such as this is almost always sold in the sub $10 range, and often found in the bargain bin for much less. Wonder why this one is so expensive in comparison?

I love it in my youth and watched constanly on cable.

I am wondering if I should stick with pleasant nostalgia or risk watching it again and see it for what it really is. Too many times I've walked away unhappy.

reply

I laughed til I was sick when I saw this. Tim Conway and Don Knotts proved you didn't have to be vulgar, crude or offensive to be funny. I miss them on the movie screen/ tv dearly.

Nostalgia is a wonderful thing. Dont see " IT " for what it really is... see YOURSELF for what you really are... someone who has grown up and matured and can appreciate lots of things in a DIFFERENT light now. If you dont do THAT, chances are you will indeed walk away unhappy.

I'd love to see it again.

omg...I loved this movie. My mom and I would rotfl each time we saw it. Loved wookalars, drinking ink from buzzard puss, and your are standing in cow mnure. Yay.

reply

Yeah, I saw this one as a kid, loved it, and recently saw it again with my own kids and they love it! It's not just nostalgia, it's still a fun little flick.

I love this movie as well. I can not believe the low rating it has received, or the nasty user comments being displayed.

This is a wonderfully funny movie set in a spooky house with loads of secret passages and goofy gags. It really deserves more credit than it's being robbed of...

Besides, where else can you see a real,live, Wookalare?

If there was more love in the world, there'd probably be a lot less dyin'.

reply

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. No matter how many times I watch this movie it is still a pleasure to watch it again. P1ss on anyone who doesn't like this movie.

reply

i remember finding it quite funny back when I saw it in Grade 6. Especially the 'rhyming' lines. Seeing it again recently I'm mostly struck by Trisha Nobel. HOLY CRAPOLA did she ever look great in this movie. And I mean HO-LY CRAP-O-LA!!! that's about as fine as the female form can get

reply

Absolutely. this is comedy from a simpler time. Nothing pretentious or complicated. Just two comic geniuses being hilarious without the need for swearing or sex (except for the girl undressing...and bull ka ka)

reply

I saw this movie for the first time in 1984-85, my aunt had recorded it onto VHS, and it has been one of my favorite movies ever since. It is not possible to know how many times I have seen the movie, especially since I have it on DVD. However, anyone out there who has not seen this movie, it is a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family with its simplistic but extremely funny comedy bits and no cursing to have to worry about with the kids. Its too bad that directors have gotten away from these type of movies.

reply

Yes I too LOVE this movie! I remember rushing out to see it in the theater with some friends when I was 13. I still love it today. I watch it at least once a year. I have the poster & press kit. I have the NBC version (which has 10 minutes of deleted footage from the theatrical/Video version). I have the movie on VHS & DVD.

Tim & Don were hilarious! A TRUE CLASSIC COMEDY! It is ashame that they did not get to make more movies together. Tim said on the DVD commentary from a couple of years ago that he had a new script he wanted to do with Don. I know I would have been there!

reply

Been a big fan of this movie since seeing it on the big screen as a kid.

My head hurts, my teeth itch, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus.

reply

I just found out the name of this movie by posting on the "I Need to Know" board. I havn't seen it for years and wasn't even sure who was in it besides Tim Conway. I just remembered this scene where they are looking under a glass table and have their noses pressed against the glass like pigs. I can't wait to find it and watch on DVD!

reply

I'd like to see this again. I remember going to the theater to see it back in the day, though my memory is vague. Did this one have small black bombs with the fuse sizzling away?

Whose idea was it for the word "Lisp" to have an "S" in it?

reply

i just watched it over 25 years.
