What a boring movie


Saw this once when it first came out, never saw it again since even though I know it was on network television back in the 80s.

Well I saw this when I was 10 years old. Totally put me to sleep. I don't remember any action at all. Totally lifeless. Perhaps I'd have a different opinion if I saw it again? Who knows.

Hi, I saw it on tv coz I'm a fan of Donald Siegel and find Lesley-Anne Down beautiful and charming. Though I think LAD is ok in the movie, I also found it boring.

I have a very fond memory of seeing this movie in a theater. Well, maybe 'memory' and 'seeing' aren't really the right words. I'd been up for something like 24 hours so fell asleep almost immediately after sitting down.

I woke up as the end credits were rolling and the person I was with was laughing. I asked if I'd fallen asleep and was told that, yes, I was asleep through the entire movie and was actually the most entertaining part. It seems that whenever there was a lull (which, evidently, happened a lot in this bomb), I'd let out a particularly loud, real snore which otherwise cracked up the few, remaining bored people who stuck it out in the audience.

First saw it on cable, in the mid-80s. It's a pleasant little caper film. Nothing too spectacular; but, it has a charming cast, which makes up for many things.

Fortunately, Ah keep mah feathers numbered for just such an emergency!
