Delightfully Funny
9 October 1999 | by Lishi-2See all my reviews

When I first saw a commercial for this TV movie on the Disney Channel, I predicted that it would just be some dumb old thing that I wouldn't like with really bad special effects and a really cheesy plot line. It was quite surprising that I actually LIKED it and that my whole family (that includes my parents, 18-year-old sister, and eight-year-old brother) ended up watching it. We all had our own comments that we shared out loud during several scenes, involuntarily. {For example: My dad said something about how smelly Harold must have been. I remembered (out loud), "Hey! It's that boy from Picket Fences," and then after a few minutes, my sister said he was annoying. I personally thought that his CHARACTER was simply MEANT to be annoying. My mom also asked a lot of questions throughout the movie.}

I really didn't care for the movie at the beginning but I became interested after watching the children break into Mr. Kubat's house and finding a mummy, Harold. It intrigued me that the boy, Marshall, treated the mummy like a dog. The movie made me laugh, but it wasn't factually realistic. If Harold was really walking around somewhere, I'm sure that his stench would have been too smelly for someone to just shrug off. The characters mentioned his smell, but I think that there should have been a more immediate reaction to it. I also think that the doctors included in this movie were really dumb, but that made it funny. I also wondered about other various things, such as how Harold understood English.

Basically, I just liked this movie because it was hilarious. My laughter outweighed my questions, and I don't think that any movie can be flawless. It was a bit predictable, though. On another note, I couldn't stop staring at Harold's teeth.
