Walt Disney's Chicken Little - Don Knotts' final performance

Walt Disney’s Chicken Little

  • by


Have you ever sat through a children’s movie with a message? A very blunt message? That the movie beats you over the head with, over, and over? And over? That’s Walt Disney’s Chicken Little, unfortunately. It takes a good concept, and ruins it in the execution. It’s the final film of Don Knotts, and it’s a sad farewell to a great talent and very funny man.

Editorial Review of Hermie : A Common Caterpillar, starring Don Knotts and Tim Conway, courtesy of

 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.

The Emperor’s New Clothes, starring Sid Caesar, Robert Morse, Jason Carter, Lysette Anthony

DVD review of The Emperor’s New Clothes starring Sid Caesar, Clive Revill, Robert Morse. A very good children’s film that plays on two levels – one for the children, and another for the adults, with the perpetually funny Sid Caesar cracking me up every time he appears as the self-absorbed emperor

The Chronicles of Narnia — The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)

Disney The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Widescreen.   C.S. Lewis’s classic novel The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe makes an ambitious and long-awaited leap to the screen in this modern adaptation.  It’s a CGI-created world laden with all the special effects and visual wizardry modern film making technology can conjure, which is fine so long as the film stays true to the story that Lewis wrote. And while this film is not a literal translation — it really wants to be so much more than just a kids’ movie.  For the most part it is faithful enough to the story.  Whatever faults it has are happily faults of overreaching, and not of holding back.
