Gus (1976)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

While many American football fans were watching Super Bowl LV on February 7, 2021, some people, including myself, were watching the 1976 Disney film, Gus instead (although my watching it that weekend was purely coincidental). After all, it does center around American football…basically. How good is this Vincent McEveety-directed film? Read on to find out!

Just wanna start this review with a shout-out to my long-time follower, kirksroom! He requested me to review this film since October 2014 and only NOW I’m getting to it! I almost got to it a few months ago, but a case of mistaken identity regarding the movie he wanted me to review resulted in it being prolonged even more.

I apologize to you, kirksroom, for taking so long to do this film! So without further ado, let’s see whether I enjoy this “comedic kidnapping caper” as much as kirksroom does! Time to review No Deposit, No Return!

So, funny story: this was supposed to be the first movie I reviewed on this site due to somebody requesting it, rather than me choosing it all on my own. I was under the impression that a commenter by the name of “act” had suggested this movie for me to review, so I finally got around to obtaining this film (he suggested this back in October 2014), watching it, and reviewing it.

But, as I was editing this review, I went back to the original comment posted by act and realized that I had made a mistake. He didn’t suggest this movie; he wanted me to review a movie called No Deposit, No Return!

How could I have made the mistake? Maybe because they’re both Disney films from the 70s, both have titles that are around four words long, and both feature actors Don Knotts, Darren McGavin, and John Williams? It’s possible. Maybe I just misread the original comment? That’s possible too.

All in all, I’d like to apologize to act if you’re reading this and I’ll do my best to get to reviewing No Deposit, No Return as soon as possible! I appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, we might as well go through Hot Lead and Cold Feet together now since I have the review prepared already.

The Apple Dumpling Gang was a film said to be the most successful Disney film of the 1970’s, hence it was only natural that a sequel to it would be made. However, this sequel would not star the main characters, Dusty and Donovan, from the first movie. Instead, it would focus on what many people would consider the runaway hit characters from the first film: the bumbling thieves, Theodore and Amos.

A similar decision was made in the original Pink Panther film series.

So, is this film any good compared to The Apple Dumpling Gang or any good at all, for that matter? Or is this just a shoddy sequel created for the sole purpose of making money? Well, let’s take a look and find out!

When one thinks of classic live-action Disney films, one generally thinks of films from the ’60s such as “Mary Poppins”, “The Love Bug”, “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes”, “Pollyanna”, “Swiss Family Robinson”, “The Parent Trap”, etc. But the ’70s also had its share of classics. Today we’ll look at one of these classic ’70s Disney films in particular, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”.

Enjoy! And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD! Continue reading “The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975)”
