Audience Reviews for How to Frame a Figg

"How to Frame a Figg" is an inept comedy on almost every level. A childish, inert script (the only one I've ever heard repeatedly use the word "poophead") that never goes far enough in its absurdity to be truly hilarious. The pacing is horrendously bad, and set pieces and gags are unoriginal and predictable. Don Knotts has good chemistry with his romantic interest in the film, and the two are appealing leads who manage a couple of laughs here and there, but it's not even close to enough to save a lifeless screenplay.

A great Saturday afternoon matinee for the whole family. If only the politicians in real life were like the ones in this movie, the world would be much simpler.

Funny but often unseen Don Knotts classic. Has a early 70's Disney vibe to it but was made by Universal. If you like Don Knotts you will like this movie.
