While we all know Dick Van Dyke acted in the Disney film, Mary Poppins, few realize that he has acted in two other films for Disney (not counting his cameo in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day).

He’s soon to have a FOURTH Disney film under his belt!

Today, we take a look at one of those two lesser-known Disney films of his: Never a Dull Moment! Does the film live up to its title? Read on to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

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!
