OK Movie

Nothing with Dick Van Dyke can be that bad, but this movie does not live up to the Diagnosis Murder television series. Mr. Van Dyke deserves better projects than this. Also, how come this is Barry Van Dyke's first acting role since DM? While he's now Dick Van Dyke, he isn't that bad. Can't he get roles, other than what his father is involved in? Don't expect "The Dick Van Dyke Show", or "DM", but Dick Van Dyke is enjoyable as usual. The story's not that great, but entertaining enough. Also, I'm wondering when the next one is coming out, I heard that there would be more. I'd certainly like to see more if more are coming.
