Impressive Feets of Strength
Verified purchase
What an incredible documentary about this amazing young man! I had no idea such talented people exist! Clean and jerk of 1,100 pounds is no small feat; Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers are the only other people I know of capable of this feat. Of course Popeye could do it with a can of spinach, but that's fiction.

I'm so glad Dexter was able to get a cereal endorsement for his efforts, too many times these days world class athletes are chewed up and spit out by the show biz machine.

I'd like to see Dexter matched up with Andre the Giant if he were still alive today.

This documentary and Pumping Iron are two of my favorites, but I think this is a bit more entertaining since Dexter does not have the heavy accent that Arnold Schwartz 'n egger had, making it easier to understand.

Good, But Not As Strong As the First...
Verified purchase
“The Strongest Man in the World” is a fun movie but not as entertaining its predecessor “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes” and “Now You See Him, Now You Don’t.” It is definitely worth watching but it is a bit slow and could have been better. You get the idea that the characters are getting a bit tired by their third movie together. They just did not seem up to the task. It would also be nice if Dexter Riley would stop changing girlfriends. These films are not about that aspect of college life, but it is a bit distracting to have these unexplained cast changes.

Silly But FUN!
Verified purchase
This movie is typical of the live-action Disney fare from the 60s and 70s. Harmless fun based on a silly premise. Kurt Russell was always so fun to watch in his Disney movies. This is the type of movie that was on Sunday nights when I was a kid and afterwards on various local stations and finally on the Disney Channel before they started original programming and adding other shows of a dubious (but more "hip") nature. If you like silly fun for the whole family, check out this title or any other family movie that features Kurt Russell, Tommy Kirk, Fred MacMurray, Joe Flynn, Ken Berry, Keenan Wynn & Ed Wynn, Hayley Mills, Jim Dale, Dean Jones, Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Robert Morse, Phil Silvers, or Mickey Rooney. You won't be disappointed!!!

Great old movies without agendas
Verified purchase
Movies today are filled with agendas and ignorant messages. It’s good to go back and watch “MOVIES”.

Enjoy a simple funny movie during turbulent times
Verified purchase
These old Disney Kurt Russell movies are refreshing to watch during these times of hate, anger, and violence that is all we see on tv.

good movie for the whole family!
Verified purchase
watched this movie at my child's 70's birthday party. We wanted the kids to have a movie from that era, and this is what was chosen. Not super-violent, and despite the low-tech effects to today's standards, the kids loved it. A feel-good movie like the ones we used to watch when we were kids. Nothing offensive or inappropriate.
