Well, I did.
I suppose that going in with very low expectations made it a lot easier to actually like this film, but as silly as it was I was actually laughing out loud at several points.
What really made it worthwhile, though, was the collection of former child actors and actresses that made an appearance. Aside from several in the actual movie, over the end credits there is a “We Are the World” type parody that has a collection of former child performers singing a song about being former child actors.
Hearing Maureen McCormick sing, for example, that if one more person calls her “Marcia” she’s going to “break their fucking head” almost had me in tears. I did not recognize all the performers, however. We were given the name and show of the ones that had a solo verse, but of the 20 or 30 people singing, I’d estimate that they only identified half of them.
Does anyone have a link to a site that has a picture of this group and their identities? The official website is of no help in this matter.
The one that really blew me away was an older balding gentleman with glasses that was singing. He sort of looked familiar… then we find out he’s Barry Livingston, who played Ernie on My Three Sons! There’s a name I haven’t seen since the 60’s or 70’s, whenever that show was on. Wow!
