5-0 out of 5 stars Never take yourself seriously
Don Knotts and Tim Conway are the experts at not taking themselves seriously. The best way to give an understanding of how wild this movie is is to simply point out that comic genius Don Knotts plays the straightman to Tim Conway's magnificent imbecile. Of course none of it makes sense - it was never meant to! That's part of the joke. My family has worn out one copy of this video. Not even the classic 'Walk this way' from Young Frankenstein can match up to the take on that joke in this movie. My mother begins laughing at it several minutes before they actually perform it, it's so funny! I'm willing to bet Tim Conway made up the 'Wookalar' story on the spot, from the incredulous look Don Knotts gives him. Great double feature with Clue!

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh how I remember this movie!
I can remember my mom first getting this movie for me when I was about 3 years old, and she told it had Don Knotts & Tim Conway from "The Apple Dumpling Gang" in it! To this day it continues to make me laugh, and it is one of those movies which has withstood the test of time! But with these 2 comedy greats playing the spoofs of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to solve a murder in a dark haunted mansion, it's a movie every family of any age will treasure! A must for the whole family!

5-0 out of 5 stars This movie is hilarious
It's a true comedy classic - you'll laugh til you fall out of your chair! And it is climactic too!

3-0 out of 5 stars slippery sleuths
great comedy team as wats &holmes like the beach wagon etc they realy left a mark ...

5-0 out of 5 stars "A Sound? You mean like a Wookalar would make?" "Koowah!"
First the DVD review: This DVD was/is put out by "Hens Tooth" video. (Hens Tooth?) Features the original theatrical trailer, which in itself is a gem; a wonderful stills gallery featuring behind the scenes making of the movie...priceless! And an awesome commentary by Tim Conway and the Director Lang Elliot who offer tons of little know facts and insight to this classic! This DVD is crisp and clear and so is the sound! The only thing this DVD lacks are the deleted and alternate scenes and alternate angles they showed on TV back in 1984. (see below for details) But, I'm happy to take what they give!

I know this is going to sound odd, but this is my favorite comedy of all time! No question! I have always been a big fan of Tim Conway and Don Knotts! (Who isn't?) Both men are absolute geniuses and have been underused since this movie came out back in 1981. This movie left a huge impression on me when I was a kid! I have always wanted a house just like the one in this movie! Who wouldn't want a 252 room estate! You could almost sleep in a different room for a full year! I was equally impressed when I found out the house in this movie is a real house! It's the Biltmore House and gardens. The real house is in Asheville North Carolina. Although the Biltmore House doesn't have 252 rooms (darn!) it is an absolutely gorgeouse manor! I highly recommend you check out their website! They will even send you a free brochure which pulls out into a mini poster! I have one on my wall right now! Very cool!

Anyways, back to the review...This is one movie that can be shared with the whole family! When this movie came out I was 10 years old and was so impressed by the look of it, the hysterical comedy, the cast, and the mystery storyline! You had to be there, but everytime and I mean EVERYTIME I saw this movie the theater was packed and sold out! Movies back then would run for 3-6 months at a time! (this is before even video and vcr's) I would clip every article or advertisement for this movie and I still have them today in a scrapbook! Yes, I am a fan!

Tim and Don play two ameturish private detectives who are called in to investigate the murder of Lord and Lady Morley, the owners of the estate. Don plays the straight guy to a T! Tim plays a wacky, paranoidish, inventor/detective. One of Tims inventions is called a time gun, which goes off every hour! He is also afraid of a legendary creature called the "Wookalar"! A half pig half human creature that will "suck your brains right out your nose!" Very funny stuff! You have to see it for yourself! The two detectives run into a myriad of funny characters along the way in the Manors staff and housekeeprs/caretakers! Just when they think they know who the killer is..that suspect ends up dead! Hilarious!

Now, here is something to note: I was extactic when this movie first aired on TV back in 1984 and happily taped it! Lucky for anyone else who taped it (and still has the tape like me!) because they showed scenes and alternate takes/angles that are NOT IN THIS DVD! They show a scene with Trisha Noble and Tim Conway eating dinner at a loooong dinner table that is just hilarious! Tim dresses up as Don's character, in hopes of "fooling" the killer, as a decoy. Trishas character just beats the crud out of Tim as she gets upset when people try to "trick" her! Hilarious!
The next scene they showed was an extra scene of Tim trying to send off a Homing pigeon, with an update of their investigation to Scotland Yard. Tim has a whole crate of homing pigeons and every time he trys to send a message something happens to the bird! So, in the deleted scene Tim paints a pigeon black, so no one can see it at night thus nothing should happen to it, and when he throws it out the window of his room...the pigeon goes but the wings stay in his hands! Cruel? Yes, by todays standards, but still funny!
Next, there is an alternate scene when the maid is preparing tea for Tim and Don and the killer slips poison in their cups. And there are a couple of alternate angle shots throughout the TV version.

This is an absolute classic comedy! Buy it before it goes out of print! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Underrated Disney Live Action Comedy
I thought this was an entertaining movie. It was not one of Disney's greatest, but it contained some truly amusing scenes. This is a far better film than many that Disney Studios was producing during the decade of the 70s. Some of the scenes were dumb, but lighten up, that's what makes it so enjoyable and funny. Tim Conway and Don Knotts are hilarious. Have a good laugh.

1-0 out of 5 stars no widescreen
I will not buy this and upgrade from my VHS copy if they can't even make it in widescreen. THe lack of extras is also a dissapointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie
One of our family's favorite movies. This is so full of cliches that it is a riot. Everything in it, the bad guys, the Indians, the "brave soldiers" are all a spoof on numerous other westerns. One of Conway's and Knott's best comedies. I hope that Disney re-releases this on DVD. We love to watch this over whenever life gets down and we need a laugh.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too many story ideas
It was a pretty funny moive, and it would of been funnier if they would of just focused on the stars!! They kept going to these two who fall in love with each other just to add romance, but the story could of done with out it, they needed to show more of Tim Conway and Don Knotts, they weren't even in it for half the movie!! Disney moives need to have less romance, they make kids moives anyway!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth 5 Stars!
This is one of the funniest videos that I own! Tim Conway and Don Knotts are unbelievably funny! It brings back great memories of when I was growing up and watching it on the Disney Chanel! I laugh so hard every time I watch this great film! It's a great Family film well worth 5 stars ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars First they blew into town... then they BLEW IT UP!
I bought this movie out of a sense of nostalgia, being a child of the seventies. Watching this movie now, it didn't quite hold up as well as I remembered, but it is somewhat entertaining, and I would feel comfortable showing it to my nieces and nephews, given its' lack of anything that could be considered even remotely offensive.

The plot has Donovan (Bill Bixby), a bachelor and small time hustler of sorts, getting stuck with the care of three orphan children. As he tries to unburden himself of his three wards, he finds the townspeople to be less than receptive to the idea of taking in the children. These orphans hold the deed to a goldmine, thought by everyone to be dried up, but an earthquake turns up a huge gold nugget, and now the townspeople are falling over themselves to take custody. Donovan, actually concerned with the welfare of the children, works up a plan to marry Dusty (Susan Clark), and pass the children on to her care, as she seems truly interested in the welfare of the children, and not their money.

Don Knotts and Tim Conway play a pair of bungling thieves who scheme, among other things, to try and steal the huge gold nugget. The whole ladder theft from the firehouse scene was pretty funny.

Some other easily recognizable stars in this movie are Harry Morgan and Slim Pickens.

As I said before, while the movie didn't seem as humorous to me now as it did when I was a child, it was certainly entertaining. It's a fine wide screen presentation, but what I really enjoyed was the special features. The interactive menus are excellent and grant access to quite a lot of interesting information like lengthy biographies, interviews, history of the back lots at Disney studios, promotional stills and advertising material for the movie, a synopsis of what was going on at Walt Disney in 1975 (the year this movie was released), and so much more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Apple Dumpling Gang Is Finnaly On A Specail Edition DVD
I just got my copy of this DVD and I Love it. Another Great Movie for you to see is the sequel to this timeless classic Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again. Which is also available on DVD from Amazon.com.

Here is a brief Description:

3 kids are sent to a backwoods town and are supposed to belong to a backwoods drunk. Well the backwoods drunk has other plans so he gives them to a town newcomer Donnavan. Well than the kids find gold, and that is when they meet the 2 hilarious crooks Tim Conway, and Don Knotts. Well after they find the gold everybody wants the kids . And it attracts attention to a group of crooks. Well as the movie goes on you find out that Tim Conway, and Don Knotts used to work for the Head of the gang of crooks until Tim Conway acidentally show the guys leg in a hold up. well it ends the Donavan and his friend Dusty get married and they move to St. Louis where he starts a Gambling Joint. But in the sequel you don't here anything about it, and in the sequel they said that Donavan and Dusty and the kids moved onto a farm. Did I miss something somewhere ?

Great Movie. 5 Star Rating.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of Disney's best
One of the best live-action Disney movies. A sweet story about misplaced children, an unwilling but good-intentioned gambler as a foster parent and two bumbling crooks as the comic foil. Bill Bixby, of "My Favorite Martian" and "The Hulk" fame, plays Russell Donovan, the roaming gambler who is unwittingly stuck with some "valuables." Tim Conway and Don Knotts, a little past their prime, play the hapless crooks known as the "Hash Knife Outfit." Susan Clark plays the tomboy stage coach driver who fills in as the kids mother. Beautiful scenery, lots of action, comedy, and a fabulous saloon brawl that is the highlight of the film.

3-0 out of 5 stars They call them the Apple Dumpling Gang
Once again Disney released a classic in it's fading days of "G" rated gems. The loose knit comedy team of Don Knotts and Tim Conway is always a hit in any situation. This is one is a bit plot heavy for them and Disney but it still makes you laugh. Bill Bixby is their straight man who carries most of the plot. At first they try to rob him but by the end they help him, his kids and his girlfriend defeat the bad guys and save the town. This is a very good movie and the sequel is even funnier.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Widescreen DVD release of a Disney favorite!
An excellent DVD release -- in WIDESCREEN -- that does justice to a Disney favorite from the 1970s. The print and sound are excellent -- the extras lots of fun. Note to Disney Home Video: PLEASE release all films in their original theatrical ratios. We were very disappointed with The Snowball Express, Balckbeard's Ghost, Babes in Toyland, and The Moon-Spinners. Disney fans take note: Escape to Witch Mountain is another outstanding "Special Edition" release that is highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the four best movies ever made
This movie is wicked good. It is the movie with car chases that is better than a lot of other movies like that. Some of the cars go very fast, but some just move along at a good speed. In a cross country race it is all about strategy. There are a lot of people in this movie. Some of the actors are more famous than others, and some are really famous. Steve McQueen is not in this movie. It is all a surprise when you see it the first time. There is a good fight scene at a ranch or something like that and it's good. The cars are cool. The winner of the race is a real cool plot twist. I love this movie and it's a good one. There are a lot of scenes that involve drinking and driving, but it is not made to look cool. This is a good movie for the whole family.

5-0 out of 5 stars it's fun!
Look sure it's not going to win awards and it's not the best looking movie around but it's a lot of fun. i look to a movie for fun and not all of them must high budget, twisted plot line type to do it, burt and these stars had fun making it and it shows. plus there if a monkey in it and people like Jackie Chan in a early role, it has corny jokes you know are coming but you still laugh i mean who can not laugh when you have Dom, Burt and sammy davis all dressed up in womens clothes dancing?

get this movie is you want a fun light hearted movie to enjoy.

1-0 out of 5 stars An Honest Review!
This movie is great! But the reason I gave it a 1 star was coz Jackie Chan had a very small role and he appeared through both movies. I know his english isn't good but he could've done some of the fighting scenes

2-0 out of 5 stars The first one really deserved a sequel?
If you liked the first Cannonball Run movie, then I guess there's no reason not to like this one. There's a little bit other than the race going on in this one. They have the mob chasing them. It stars out with the exact same opening credits as the first movie with the cops casing on of the fast cars and the sexy women defacing a speed limit sign.
Then there's that familiar "Cannonballers getting drunk at the hotal the night before" thing.

The race starts in the west coast this time, but throughout the entire movie, they never get past the Nevada desert until the cloing credits. Almost the entire movie take place in the Navada desert so there's not much racing going on.
This movie had a slightly better supporting cast than the first one, which is why I gave this movie 2 stars instead of 1.
This time we have the 19-foot tall behemoth Richard Kiel sharing a small computerized Japanese car with Jackie Chan. Some of the baddies chasing them include Henry Silva (who's always a ruthless bad guy, but here he's more of a nerdy bad guy), Abe Vigoa, Alex Rocco, Telly Savalas, just to name a few. Another mismatch of 2 people sharing a car is Mel Tillis and Tony Danza. You really have to be a fan of redneck fast car movies like Smokey And The Bandit, Hooper, and Stroker Ace, then maybe you'll like this, but If you like comedies that are actually FUNNY, then you'll be disappointed.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Cannonball Run 2 (1983)
This film is exactly like its original only this time the mob is after them. And also instead of Michael Hui, Jackie's capilot is Richard Kiel (the giant who played "Jaws" in 2 James Bond Movies: "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker"). But then again it's quality is very poor... if you want to buy it don't waste your money on the expensive DVD edition, buy it on the cheap VHS edition. Jackie Chan still appears in a few cameo appereances but this time a few more. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You'll Need Band-Aids for This :)
When I first saw Tim Conway in his character role as 'Dorf' on the Carol Burnette Show I thought I'd die with laughter. I wonder if Randy Newman got the idea for 'Short People' from some of Conway's wild routines. His wacky, insane skits of Dorf is a memorable classic. In this video 'Dorf on Golf' Dorf shows us how to play golf. Oh, my! Really? Tahew! Tahew! Tahew! (thank you, Mr. Tuddball) He teaches us to drive, putt-putt and find the 19th hole? His assistant doesn't have a clue what he's doing either. It's a laugh a minute! Also for the fisherman/woman there is a companion video, 'Dorf Goes Fishing.' I'd say forget about the Pesci/Glover film, 'Gone Fishin'.' Go for this! Alot of Conway's natural comic genius can make any dull moment funny. Alot of that was his later work with Don Knotts. Remember 'The Apple Dumpling Gang,' 'Private Eyes' and Prize Fighter.' This has got to Conway's funniest character ever. All his Dorf videos on Golf, Fishing, Baseball, Auto Racing and the Olympic Games are classics to treasure. It's good clean comedy you won't feel guilty in owning. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining and funny!
This movie is very heart-warming, funny, and enjoyable. It's perfect for the whole family. People of all ages will enjoy this entertaining movie. Don Knotts is the perfect coach. He's hilarious, as always. It's up to Gus the Mule to pull his team out of a long losing streak. Also look for Ed Asner, Dick Van Patten, Harold Gould, Dick Butkus, and Bob Crane, who is Pepper, the know-it-all sportscaster. A good Disney movie. Rent or buy this movie soon. The mule Gus is cute too!

1-0 out of 5 stars GUS
No widescreen = no sale. C'mon Disney, get with the program!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don Knotts and Tim Conway are the BEST!
How could you not like this movie haveing Don Knotts and Tim Conway in it? They are to funny and I love all there movies! Gus is a cute movie for the whole family. Its hard for me to find movies that the whole family can enjoy together. But this one is a good one, five stars!=)
Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Silly Slapstick Fun for the Young and Young at Heart
The California Atoms need a miracle. They've been in last place for so long that they have very few fans in the stadium for football games. In a desperate attempt to build attendance, the owner, Mr. Cooper, flies over Gus, a mule from Yugoslavia that kicks field goals. Soon, the mule and his owner Andy are being used to score points in the games. In an attempt to keep the team, Mr. Cooper makes a bet with his creditor that if the team wins the Super Bowl, he can keep the team. But the creditor won't make it easy. As the season progresses, the stakes get higher and the laughs get louder.

Sure, this is a completely unrealistic movie. And you can probably guess every single plot point long before it happens. But this is another case of having so much fun getting there that you really don't care. I watched this movie many times as a kid, but hadn't watched it for years until recently. I was laughing right from the start, and the final scene made me laugh just as hard as it always did. I do wonder how some of the big name cast (like Tom Bosley and Ed Asner) got talked into this movie, but they do a great job and it's great fun as a result.

The DVD, on the other hand, could have been better. Even though the package doesn't admit to it, this film was obviously originally widescreen, and the cut made for this DVD is bad. Usually I don't notice too much of a difference, but here people were often half on the screen and it was obvious we were missing bits of the action because of the edit. The picture quality could have also used a little sprucing up, with grain showing up on a fairly regular basis. It's noticeable, but not enough to truly detract from the film.

If you're in the mood to laugh, this is the film for you. If you already have the VHS, there's no reason to rush out to upgrade. If you don't already own it, the DVD is a fine additional to any movie collection. Unfortunately, this is probably the best we'll ever get for this film.

2-0 out of 5 stars no widescreen!
Come on Disney, how do you take such a great movie and dump it like a piece of Junk. The lack of widescreen or quality sound is really sad for a company that makes more money than any other at re-releasing it's old material.
Also no extras? Not even some outakes, gallery stuff, theatrical trailers, cartoons. I refuse to buy any of the new disney DVD if they are not in widescreen, and tons of people I know from disney clubs and message boards feel the same way. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars This Special is Good but Please Put The Full Skits on DVD!
I was two years old when The Carol Burnett Show aired on TV and the show was on for about 11 years so I grew up watching that classic variery skit show in the 70s and I loved it. Now I remember waching this reunion show on television a few years ago and while I wish they had shown more skits and had less talking about them it was interesting to hear Carol, Vicky, Tim and Harvey talking about how much they loved doing the skits and all of the fun they had and you could really tell how much they all liked and respected each other so I actually enjoyed watching their Show Stoppers Special but what would really be wonderful is if they put the Carol Burnett show on DVD in complete seasons or best of DVD's!

1-0 out of 5 stars Carol Burnett Promotion Series
I was so disappointed with the quality of the videos. The volume had to be constantly adjusted and there were skips in the audio that eliminated two or three words about every 15 seconds. I was embarrassed to have sent two videos as gifts. When I viewed the other 6 videos with friends for the first time it was very irritating, and not funny, to view such poor quality taping. I am shocked that Ms Burnett would promote these tapes produced by your company. Your offers will not be recommended in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars Carol Burnette Rocks!!!
I would reccomend you buying this movie because Carol Burnette is Hillarious!!!!! (And rocks)She's one of my favorite tvland shows.

1-0 out of 5 stars just sad
Three old people sit on stage and chuckle over the great times they had thirty-some years ago-- pathetic. Intense obsessive fans ask question after personal question of the cast--creepy. Musical montages are compiled of dumb stuff such as Bob Mackie costumes--painfully boring. All of this fast-forward-worthy, just-change-the-channel television junk is interspersed with less than 10 minutes worth of quality skits.

I think this stinks, that Ms. Burnett is being greedy for charging so much for this teaser and for charging higher for the recently-released full-episodes set advertised on TV.

1-0 out of 5 stars Show Stoppers - Not! This should be "Stop - Don't Buy This!"
This DVD was an expensive and disappointing purchase. Amazon did not give a good or accurate synopsis of what this DVD/tape is all about. What it is is a one-hour CBS television special minus commercials (42 minutes) of self-praise by the Carol Burnett Show cast. Don't get me wrong, they're great but we only got tid bits when we were looking and hungry for a full course meal of Carol, Vicki, Harvey and Tim! Very disappointing. Give me my money back! Don't buy this. Wait until something else comes out! ... Read more

One of the most endearing features of The Carol Burnett Show was the Q&A session with the audience that opened every show; it provided a charming forum for Burnett’s warm rapport with her fans, as well as a showcase for her improvisational skills. This 2004 TV special (which, like Burnett’s Showstoppers retrospective from 2001, posted huge ratings) puts the comedienne and her series co-stars--Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence, and Lyle Waggoner--in front of an audience once again to reminisce and introduce some vintage Q&A clips. Burnett remains fast with a quip, and game enough to once again venture a stellar Tarzan yell, and she’s well-matched by her former castmates, who spin some terrific stories about smooching male and female audience members, wrangling with the legendary Mrs. Miller, and struggling to keep a straight face while one of them (usually Conway) stole the show. For fans of the series, this is an enjoyable highlight reel of its funniest unscripted moments. --Paul Gaita ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Kids Movie
Its an excellent kids movie, I bought a copy for my niece & nephew, it always helps to have these animal centered storylines but child actor (no longer a kid) Kevin Zegers also shows why he has become such an up and coming star. This edition of the Bud series is also probably the best of the lot with The World Cup movie a close second.

5-0 out of 5 stars AIR BUD - Greatest of All
Not many sequels are a good as the first, but this is an exception. When Bud appears in his uniform you react much like if the band just started with a John Philip Sousa march. Bud makes you swell with good feelings. Like the first movie, the dog shots are real and not just special effects. You do not need to like football to be cheering. I find the only time ball games are a good spectator sport is when Air Bud is starring. But then I have a couple of golden retrievers and 10 other dogs. You don't need kids to love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love This movie!
Buddy is a golden retriever who likes basketball. Now, he's back in football. In the end of the movie, there's a song I love it's called "One Moment." I love that song so much. I hope you get this movie and like it, too! It's a really good song!

4-0 out of 5 stars Likable Sequel.
Buddy has become a well known dog, while his Master (Kevin Zegers) has become a teenager. Now the Teen has discover Buddy could also play Football! Now two Russians (Nora Dunn & Perry Anzilott), who steal animals and Discover Buddy Talent and wants to steal the animal to bring back with them in Russia.

Directed by Richard Martin (Canadian T.V. Director) has an entertaining Sequel, Kids will enjoy this One. DVD`s has an sharp Pan & Scan (1.33:1) Aspect Ratio and an Clear Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD`s only extra is The Original Theatrical Tralier. Good family fun. Grade:B+.

5-0 out of 5 stars Golden Great
This film will be enjoyed by anyone who has ever loved dogs. It is about a great golden retriever who can play football and his owner Josh (Kevin Zegers). I liked this movie not only because I like dogs but also because it had a great story line. I recommend this movie for adults and children of all ages! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Got the Longshot
I happen to be a Tim Conway fan, and I love horseracing, so I love this movie. The plotline is you have 4 guys who are losers who like to go to the track and gamble. While at the track, they get a tip from a track worker about his attempt to fix a race using a 40 to 1 longshot named French Majesty and giving it something that will make it run fast. The catch is that he needs money to do it, so our four simpletons go ask a loan shark for the money. They get the money, but find out the mob has their own horse, Papa Chippi, racing in the same race. After finding out the race isn't fixed, Tim takes things into his own hands, running on the track trying to encourage their glue factory reject to win. Does French Majesty come back to beat Papa Chippi? Will the mob break Tim Conway's kneecaps? Will Stump fix the hose on his fishtank? All of these questions will be answered in 90 minutes.

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! Pan and scan DVD
These two movies are not Conway's best, but they are still pretty good. The only problem, and the reason for the 1 star rating, is that the DVD presents these films with the sides cut off. In other words, Pan and scan. Had I know that, I would not have bought this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Two very funny Tim Conway movies
Those who remember watching The Carol Burnett Show know that Tim Conway is perhaps the funniest actor to ever live. The two films on this double feature DVD, Longshot and They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way, are not legendary classic comedies, but they each contain a number of very funny scenes and offer an overall kooky good time. Tim Conway not only stars in both films, he wrote both of them. Longshot (1985) is particularly noteworthy because it features a reunion of the funniest comic duo of all time, Conway and Harvey Korman. They team up with Jack Weston and Ted Wass to form a team of all-time losers and underdogs. They continually berate themselves for passing up opportunities in the past, missing out on some big payoffs just because they are afraid to take risks. When a stable worker from the tracks tells them he can guarantee the victory of a longshot horse in a certain race, they decide, for once, to go for it all the way. Their partner in the stables has a special little pep pill that will make the horse run like the wind, and he agrees to slip the pill to the horse if the guys will place a bet for him along with themselves. Logic and common sense says the horse can't possibly win, but the guys not only place a huge bet on the horse, they borrow all of the money from a local mobster. As the movie progresses, there is a lot of pretty funny physical comedy, Jonathon Winters shows up to add his own twist of fun to the proceedings, and the ending plays out much better than I expected.

They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way is actually the older of these two films, dating back to 1978. In this one, Tim Conway teams up with Chuck McCann as incompetent police officers who are sent to jail undercover to try to find out where a notorious bank robber stashed the money from his heist. No one at the prison knows they are cops, and no one would believe it, anyway, as these guys are just pathetically slow about a lot of things. They find the money a few days before they are set to be released, but to their great dismay the only person besides themselves who knows they aren't really criminals suddenly dies. Faced with the dire circumstances of a ten-year stay in prison, the duo decides to break out of jail and take the recovered money to the governor. There are some really funny scenes in this movie, including a truly classic scene wherein Tim Conway finds himself ordered to pull the warden's bad tooth and has just a little bit of trouble with the Novocain - this scenario reminded me a lot of some of Conway's classic performances on The Carol Burnett Show. Another memorable scene features Conway impersonating a Japanese translator at the governor's party. Interestingly, this movie features two characters from The Dukes of Hazzard - Enos (Sonny Shroyer) and Ben Jones (Cooter). This ending of this movie did leave me feeling a tiny bit cheated, but I can't complain about all the laughs I had along the way.

If you are a fan of Tim Conway, this double feature DVD is certainly worth picking up at its affordable price; you get about three hours and fifteen minutes of comedy, and you'll certainly enjoy a number of really funny scenes even if the movies as a whole don't live up to your expectations. For me, the dentistry scene in They Went That-A-Way is worth the price of the DVD all by itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh Snap!
Hey, don't miss out on this great dvd. I like the longshot and I have not seen the other Tim Conway movie but I'm guessing it will be great. The longshot is one of my favorite movies and is absolutely funny! Even if you haven't seen this movie or any Tim Conway movies, you will enjoy this great dvd! ... Read more

This is the best movie ever made. I don't know why I love it so much. I just found out it was coming out on DVD. I can't wait. I will be the first person to buy it. If you haven't seen it, rent it. I will guarantee you'll like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Warm Fuzzy Film, Some Funny Moments, Otherwise Forgettable
Greg Kinnear plays a small-time scam artist that is arrested and sentenced to find gainful employment for a year. He ends up in the DLO (Dead Letter Office) of Los Angeles' post office, working with a colorful collection of characters headed up by his supervisor (Hector Elizondo) and a former postal carrier (Tim Conway).

Kinnear decides to open one of the DLO letters addressed to God, and ends up answering it by mistake. Soon, his colleagues want in on the action and decide that they, too, want to start answering some of the letters written to God. Warm fuzzies ensue.

However, before too long, news media and the Post Office take notice. One of the DLO employees is arrested and Kinnear is left with a decision to make - let the other guy take the fall or own up to his part in it all.

A humorous courtroom scene follows along with a happy ending.

This isn't a great film by any stretch of the imagination, but it is enjoyable and worth a few laughs. Each off-the-wall character acts consistently thoroughout the film. Each, in their own way, contributes to the humor of the film.

It's a light-hearted, feel-good film about the power of doing good.

3-0 out of 5 stars Cute, uplifting movie
I remember seeing this in the theatre and I really think this is a fun movie to watch. Greg Kinnear is fun, the rest of the characters are great to watch, and even though the story is a little weak at times, it still makes you laugh. It also shows that when people band together, there's a lot they can accomplish.

5-0 out of 5 stars This movie is hilarious!
I absolutely loved this movie. The acting is wonderful, the laughs are many, and it moves quickly. It's a beautiful story that will leave your heart smiling.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, nothing to write home about.
This movie had a few laughs and a few touching moments. I like Greg Kinnear a lot and he's the reason I picked up this film. It's good for an enjoyable evening, but don't go in expecting Academy Award winning material. ... Read more

Book Description

So what's so bad about being a common caterpillar? Just ask Hermie—or his friend, Wormie—and they'll tell you. No splashy stripes. No stand-out spots.Not even a cool house like the snail or super-strength like the ant.Compared to the rest of God’s beautiful creation, they just feel ordinary. Unimportant. A little out of place. But God sees past their plainness, and plans an incredible surprise to show them just how special they are.

Featuring the voices of Tim Conway as Hermie and Don Knotts as Wormie, these caterpillars encounter a host of delightful characters and quickly wriggle their way into the hearts of young and old alike. But as the animation engages young minds, the truth of God's purpose and plan for His people touches their souls. It's a message of hope you'll want your kids to hear, and a fun-filled adventure that will keep them crawling back for more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Family Movie
Hermie the Caterpillar is a really good movie with funny characters, good animation and a moral lesson to be learned. Poor Hermie, who wants so badly to be someone, anyone, other than the special person he was created to be. Tim Conway is wonderful as the voice of Hermie and Don Knotts excels as the voice of Wormie, Hermie's just as common pal. Together they dream and scheme and worry and fret because they see themselves as too ordinary, all the time failing to understand that God isn't finished with them yet. Great for gently getting into kids hearts that THEY are special and God is continually working to make them into an even more beautiful person. Nothing preachy about this movie, but gives a powerful example of patience and love.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hermie Has It All!
Action, humor, drama - the Hermie the Common Caterpillar story has these and more, all wrapped up like a coccoon. Parents should recognize the voices of legendary comedians Tim Conway and Don Knotts. Kids will enjoy the entire movie regardless. I recommend you read the book first. Your family will appreciate the movie even more because it not only elaborates on the story line, but includes two songs: "Just Like You" and "God Is Not Finished With You Yet." When my girls, ages 4 and 2, saw one of their favorite books brought to life, they jumped for joy. The 3D animation is lifelike and touchable (think Monsters, Inc.). Hermie's dream sequences are hilarious! Hermie convinces his best friend Wormie to follow his harebrained schemes to become strong like the ant or spotted like the ladybug. "What could go wrong?" Hermie asks Wormie, just before he's bombarded with blueberries. The video begins and ends with a short cameo of the author Max Lucado himself. Lucado's biblical message hits home without being heavy handed. Actual runtime is about 35 minutes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kids love this movie
This is such a great story. My kids love to watch it over and over. It has a great message and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderfully Superb Kid's Video
'Hermie' is such a cute adventure video for kids of all ages (parents will love it, too.). It comes from Max Lucado's story available on board book, but animation is lots more fun. It's nice to see this cute animated character Hermie a caterpillar come to life to tell his unhappy story to his pal, Wormie who has something in common. That's just it being common. The voices of Hermie are played by Tim Conway, and Wormie played by Don Knotts makes this so delightful. Hermie and his pal Wormie looks at all the fabulous insects around both of them and wonders Hermie and Wormie are just so plain. Hermie learns that being what God made you does mean He through with you yet. God lets Hermie snd Wormie know He's not finished with them. Then one day Hermie and Wormie gets a special surprise. Both of them become a beautiful butterfly. Hermie and his pal, Wormie both understand now that God's work wasn't done yet. The best always comes to the finish. Hermie and Wormie soon trust in God's plan. To all parents-this will help you child build self-esteem and self-worth. It lets them know that God loves them just like they are. They're very special just like all His wonderful creation. That is God's purpose and plan for each of us. It's superb---I recommend this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Kids Video
Our 3 year-old cant get enough of this movie! It's humorous for 3 year olds and parents with a good lesson. Hermie is an unfulfilled catepillar who wants to be anyone but himself. He's too ordinary and plain. He's regularly complains to God that He made him too ordinary, especially in light of all of the other insects that have interesting and unique abilities. God's response is that He is not finished with him yet. Well, the story has a great ending when he transforms into a butterfly. He finally understands and trusts. The story is inspired by Max Lucado's writings and Tim Conway and Don Knotts deliver the voices. Great Stuff! Wish there was another one. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Tim and Don's best films....
Well the only milestone that this movie has is that it was the first movie made by a then little known production company called Tri-Star Pictures. But that's all. The jokes do not work. It's spoff of the Rocky movies looks a bit more patheic then funny and the script has co-written by Conway and John Myers has all the makings of one that is so full of holes and cardboard charcterization. This movie went straight to cable and we all know that Tri-Star was later bought by Sony. With movies like these, no wonder Tri-Star never really took off on it's own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rolling the dice on a Disney DVD?We have a winner!
Here is an excellent example of live-action Disney from the 1970's.A fun film for everyone starring Jan-Michael Vincent as a superathlete raised in the rain forrest (what we used to call the jungle), Roscoe Lee Browne as his mentor, the very funny Nancy Walker as a blind landlady, and the ever comic genius, Tim Conway.The best suprise is a very funny performance from actor John Amos as a track coach with a dismal win-loss record.

Disney Studios is graciously presenting this fine movie in its Original Aspect Ratio of 1.85:1.Why this movie and not others is, well, typical Disney mentality.But I guess we take 'em as we get 'em and Disney gets my money.Too bad "That Darn Cat, The Barefoot Executive and Lt. Robin Crusoe, U.S.N." missed the 'letterbox boat'!

3-0 out of 5 stars Terrific, underrated Disney comedy
In my opinion, "The World's Greatest Athlete" may very well be the best Disney comedy of the '70's, even better than "Freaky Friday" or "Apple Dumpling Gang."It's also incredibly underrated, with Leonard Maltin seemingly alone among major critics in loving it.

Without giving anything away, it is a goofy, inspired slapstick comedy with a terrific cast including an absolutely hilarious Tim Conway as an inept assistant coach, a well-cast Jan-Michael Vincent as a superathlete, the wonderful Roscoe Lee Browne, rising above his stereotypical, potentially offensive role as
an African witch-doctor, and the wonderful Nancy Walker as a blind landlady who mistakes a tiger for a drunken
frat boy.

But top acting honors go to John Amos as the losingest college coach in history.The fact that he is black is important to the story set-up, but is completely uncommented on in the film and therefore makes the film ahead of its time, at least for Disney studios, who I believe had never before had a black lead actor in one of its films.This is also the film in which Howard Cosell plays himself in a hilarious bit and delivers the great line:"I have never seen anything like this in my entire illustrious career!"

The only reason I don't give "The World's Greatest Athlete" better than a *** rating is that it isn't yet available in the remastered, wide-screen special edition DVD it deserves.Come on, Disney, get on the ball.You have a real gem in your vault and you act like you don't even know it.

5-0 out of 5 stars an awesome goofball movie

1-0 out of 5 stars The Birthday Bust
My husband and I both love Tim Conway and always laughed at his antics on the Carol Burnett Show. Since my husband loves to golf, I ordered this DVD for his birthday and we eagerly awaited its arrival, sat down with birthday cake and played it. WHAT a disappointment! It is simply NOT funny, very predictable and other than the sight gag of Dorf's short legs, the usual Conway brand of madness is totally missing here. Save your money. It is not a very long DVD but seemed long as we kept hoping it would be over. A disappointing birthday gift to be sure. ... Read more
