I haven't seen the movie and don't really have any intention of seeing it. I do remember watching the tv shows as a kid and the little I remember seemed funny to me at the time, but I could hardly say I remember more than just a little of it.
But, my teenage kids have seen it and both thought it was funny but not hilarious. I think the younger they are the more they might like it, but from what they also said, I think it is not too appropriate for younger teens. So I am not sure who the target audience is. Those that are young enough to find the humor and slapstick really funny are not old enough for some of the other stuff. They should have made the humor more sophisticated if they wanted to appeal to an older audience, or taken out some of the innuendoes if they wanted to appeal to the tweenies (or that the tweenies would be allowed go by parents.)
