One of my favorite movies from my childhood...Probably saw it close to 100 times as a kid. I have not seen it in 25 years or so. Still a fun movie to watch after all that time...and I remembered so much of it.

Surprisingly funny thanks to an above average script, Brenda Vaccaro's deadpan, and a completely committed dual performance by George Hamilton.

An annoying score, weak cast and silly premise sliced up this turkey to shreds.

Totally disrespectful, and politically un-correct, but funny!

I have to admit, this is one of my favorites. It has stupid humor, granted, but I think it's better than a lot of the humor in newer movies.

Hilarious! Great lines and perfect if you need a good laugh. George Hamilton is a fantastic, comical Zorro and the supporting cast is equally silly & look like they had a great time making this. This movie is a family favorite and constantly quoted by everyone. I laugh throughout every time I see it. Good , silly fun.

Curiosity definitely killed the cat or rather it should have killed me. Funny, stupid and all of the above...

One bit, two bits, three bits a peso!

I love this old cinemax classic!

Funny and wonderfully over-the-top, this nevertheless drags when it reaches the second half.

It's not perfect, but it has aged very well throughout the years and still inspires plenty of laughs.

Great silly movie that I spent days quoting with a dude a work.
"The ships in the sea?
No. The ships in the fields. You know, the little ba ba bas!"

Perfect adventure comedy. George Hamilton's Zorro is more than mere spoof. His Zorro despite the jocular humor is as sincere a performance as Tyrone Power and more charming than Antonio Banderas and both Zorro's were excellent on film. Of course I speak of Don Diego as for Bunny Wigglesworth (or Ramone, the flamboyant twin brother their father shipped to the British navy) thats a whole different creation. The British dandy when disguised as the rogue approaches the character with all the flare of a fashion designer. Actually in truth this hyper stylish Zorro could be compared into some sense the Scarlett Pimpernel. The humor in this film of course centers arounds stereotypes but they are never coarse or mean spirited and all is done in equal measure. The humor is somewhat akin to a Mel Brooks film or Looney Tunes. Which in this day of gross out humor, sugar coated/potty mouth kids flicked, and ultra serious remakes and reboots we could use a bit of lighthearted fun back into theaters.

Comical. A farce on the Zorro theme
