Movies like The Misadventures of Merlin Jones make me really appreciate the well-known Disney stars of the 60s. Tommy Kirk and Annette Funicello were so cute in this movie. It made me wonder if they dated in real life. But since my Google research on the topic isn’t working out so well…I can at least tell you that Merlin Jones is a pretty adorable story about a nerdy college student that gets himself in all sorts of pickles around campus. The movie played like a bunch of TV episodes smushed together instead of one cohesive movie, but it worked pretty well. That was, up until the very end, where it all just felt like it was over pretty suddenly. But I guess that only left me wanting more. I hope there are more screwball comedies like this coming soon for me.
