    I haven't seen this movie in years.

    I haven't seen in since I was a kid and can't really remember it at all. I may have to toss it on my Blockbuster Online list or use one of my online rentals in-store and grab it just for fun.

    11 year old me enjoyed it, I doubt I would feel the same if I watched it now.

    I remember wanting to see it because at the time I was big into Porsches. Never have seen it all the way through...even the car couldn't save it for me.
    You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    Was it any better/worse than Ghost Dad?

    Never saw it. Was in fun in a uniquely charming and offbeat way (like Big Trouble in Little China) or a horrible mis-step in a uniquely charming and offbeat way (like Super Mario Bros.)?

    that was one of the jokes, the first five were classified.

    I remember watching and liking certain things but even at that age thought the movie was pretty dumb.

    Godawful piece of garbage!

    I saw this movie in theaters as a kid and i couldn't believe what i saw as even my dad's mouth was dropped down of how horrible this worthless movie is.

    I wish MST3K would just riff this crap

    Bill Cosby bashed the movie pretty hard right before it came out, so much so that it probably led to the film being a failure.

    Cosby had sort of a spotty career as a comedian, because he didn't start out there. He started out on a spy series with Robert Culp, and Man & Boy was one of the few historically accurate western films made. When he went to comedy, much of it was retelling his own life experiences. I like the Cosby Show, but I never thought it was too funny, in part because the setting wasn't real life. He was a successful doctor, which meant he wasn't drawing too well on his own life experiences and I think the show suffered a bit. I think Roseanne did better in that regard, for its setting.

    His movies... well, Leonard was just awful, and Ghost Dad was either stupid or horrifying, but it wasn't a comedy. I refer to Nostalgia Critic on that one, many moments feel better suited to a horror film. An episode fo the Sam & Max cartoon sort of stole the plot to Leonard, and somehow did it far better.

    I remember seeing it years ago and I liked it. The one thing I remember most is when he fired his armpit missiles.

    Oh I remember this one. As a kid I enjoyed it but still kind of knew it wasn't working. I thought it was aiming for absurdist humor like Naked Gun and the awful 60's spoofs of James Bond like Our Man Flynt and the Peter Sellers Casino Royale. To date the only Bond spoof I thought was worth any time was Dean Martin as Matt Helm in Murderer's Row. Anyway, I rewatched Leonard part 6 and Ghost Dad more recently (God, by that I mean like around 3 years ago), and I thought Ghost Dad had aged much better but it was still kind of lame.

    I thought he was drawing on his experience more as a parent which happened while he was successful rather than from when he was a kid (Fat Albert was based on his childhood).
