Movie Info

Jack Albany (Dick Van Dyke) is an actor in a television series who is mistaken for a real-life murderer Ace Williams (Jack Elam). Comedy ensues when gangster Leo Smooth (Edward G. Robinson) goes after Jack. Robinson reprises the role of the gangster tough guy he made famous in the 1930s. He leads a comical crew of criminals which include Ned Glass, Mickey Shaughnessy, Slim Pickens, Henry Silva and Tony Bill. Sally (Dorothy Provine) is the love interest who comes to the aid of the unhappy Jack. Jerry Paris, who starred as Van Dyke's neighbor in his highly successful television show of the 1960s, directs this Walt Disney-produced comedy. Disney had given the nod to the script and the production blueprints shortly before his death in 1966.

Audience Reviews for Never a Dull Moment

This has to be the best Disney movie I've ever seen.I use to watch Disney movies as a kid & remember when they didn't suck but nowadays I never watch them anymore.This goes to show that you can't go wrong with old school Disney.They don't make them like they use to anymore

It's definitely not one of more well-known Disney flicks, but it's a nice little comedy. Dick Van Dyke is perfect in his role.

5.5/10. Disappointing, considering the cast. Dick Van Dyke's comic abilities are hardly used to their best advantage. Rather ordinary Disney film, a bit predictable, only mildly entertaining.
