You know, for kids! Best to repeat that mantra-style if you’re an adult sitting down to watch 1964’s kiddie flick The Incredible Mr. Limpet. [Blu-ray]

Lame, yes. But it gave Don Knotts his first dive into movie stardom.

The story and characters in "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" seem like a good fit for a fifteen or twenty-minute short feature.

Suitable only for the very, very young and the massively -- massively -- medicated.

Classic, silly Don Knotts fish-in-water fantasy.

Pretty bad...did anyone notice that Mrs. Limpet's voice sounded like the Target lady from SNL?
