Viewing Notes

Was happy they played this for Joe Bob Briggs’ Christmas special since I hadn’t seen it. It’s a weird, idiosyncratic movie that I can appreciate while still not getting all the crazy love for. I was hoping for more HOME ALONE style antics given the amazing castle house setting and instead got weirdly edited sequences that went nowhere at times.

Still, fun watch and glad I’ve finally seen it.
